Wildly Exciting, or Maybe Not...

I do wish I had something wild and exciting to tell you all about, but I spent most of the day sitting in a classroom listening to and trying to absorb more information. Coffee o'clock came a little earlier than quitting time and I went home with "sparkly" eyes. I could say I have a headache, but mostly my eyes just feel tired. I'm fairly certain a little bit of Benadryl and a good night's rest will take care of it.

Dinner hasn't been on the table on time lately... Sometimes My Darling makes our evening meal, sometimes I manage to get it together, and sometimes we make an easy supper instead. Tonight we had ham and eggs, last night we ate tuna fish sandwiches. If I'm really on top of things, I might have something prepared and ready in the freezer. Sometimes I actually remember to take it out in time to thaw and cook. This is a skill I've never previously been required to master. James and I are both willing to fix meals, but it's going to take a bit of practice to get things rolling smoothly. Maybe tomorrow morning I'll remember to take that meatloaf out of the freezer.


  1. The dinner thing is fun when you have a busy schedule outside the home, isn't it? I used to have a menu for a couple of weeks at a time so that I wouldn't even have to think about what was for dinner. Now as I'm heading out the door at work, I'm always trying to figure out what would be a good thing to make for dinner. After a stop at the grocery store on the way home, I arrive at our humble abode at about 6:00pm, when the cooking begins. Dinner is usually served at around 7:00pm on those days. I think tuna sandwiches sounds like a great thing to have for dinner, yum! It's easy in the summer because of all the grilling.

    1. Last time I did my grocery shopping I cooked up and froze a batch of meatballs and some ground beef, onions, peppers, and garlic for chili. I've still got an uncooked meatloaf in there waiting to be taken out, thawed, and cooked up. Maybe tomorrow. (Going out to eat sounds better every day. ;) )

  2. I was like that when I started working auctions. It took a little preplanning for dinner those days! You'll get the hang of it....and I like easy meals like ham and eggs and sandwiches!

    1. I don't mind light, easy meals but the man-tummy sometimes needs something a bit more substantial.

  3. At least the man tummy is willing to lend a hand...
    That is HUGE!
    Planning meals is a pain in the a$$...
    We gotta eat....
    It will all fall into'll see....
    Enjoy your weekend..
    We are off to the cottage in the morning....yippee!
    Linda :o)
