Things are crazy as usual around here. We are always, always, always on the go. I have been doing pretty good with not complaining, and I have to say it feels pretty amazing. No one needs that kind of negativity in their lives, and I don’t miss spreading misery.
As you know, I write shit down. If I didn’t, we would all be lost. Seriously. I am the keeper of the calendar. The meal planner. The schedule monitor. We have a lot of moving pieces in our family, and I use what tools are necessary to keep us on track.
I am always thinking and planning ahead…. how are we going to get one kid here for practice, the other up to a tournament? Who is going to pick them up? Drop them off? Be home for dinner? Plans are just plans, and they are thankfully VERY flexible – but I like to have a plan….
The meal calendar we have on our dining room wall, I update every Sunday. Usually the end of the week and Saturday are spur of the moment (unless we have an occasion) – so I don’t usually plan much – but I also use it to write plans if we aren’t going to be home… more importantly, if I am not going to be home to cook dinner.
This week, I spied the cutest little update to the Menu board. I don’t know for sure which little added it (I have my guess), but it sure made me smile & damn thankful for these amazing little humans we are raising….
