Greetings! Welcome to another Monday morning! The last few weeks have hit reached a frenzied pitch around here (note the lack of menu planning) but I’m optimistic that things are quieting down.
Big news at our house. After 27 years of having our children living with us, Mike and I are empty nesters. Belle moved out this weekend into a house with a bunch of her friends. We knew it was coming for over a year, and on the surface I was fine with it, but last week hit a little hard and I was a bit weepy all week. Now that it’s over, I’m fine but I think the stress of it coming was just getting to me.
After moving her on Saturday, Mike and I spent Sunday getting the house back in order. Even though she left her bed and desk (we bought her new ones), the house feels empty with all the other furniture we gave her. I can’t believe how empty the family room is without furniture in it. We won’t even talk about how de-cluttered my shower is without all her stuff in it!
I’ve also been busy taking senior pictures. In the past I’ve talked about finding multiple income streams, I decided photography is something that I’m good at and could get into with relatively little investment. I have a few more shoots that I’m doing this month so I’ll be busy the next couple of weeks but them I’m sure it will quiet down.
Menu planning has been a bit lax around here given the chaos. We’ve been getting Plated and Hello Fresh boxes (yes, I’ve tried another box) so we’ve had food even though I hadn’t put a whole lot of thought into it.
This week I’m not getting a box but I have a couple of meals left over from last week that we’re finishing up.
Grilled Pineapple – we had this with the steak last night. It was delicious!
Chicken Cheddar Fajitas from Hello Fresh
Italian Ciabatta Hamburger from Hello Fresh
We’ll also be having dinner out one night and leftovers another.
That’s it for us. What are you planning on serving?
