Well hello there and Happy Sunday!
It doesn’t really feel like Sunday to me because tomorrow is a holiday, and a rare one in that Dan and I both have it off work and we have absolutely no plans. Of course that means I am trying to make about 10 different plans in my head.
Should we go to the zoo? Work on the yard? Visit the pool? We will probably do none of those things and instead have our booties on the couch most of the day because I can’t really stand longer than 5 minutes without wanting to cry. However, there is a surprising amount of yard work that can be done sitting down.
The couch is where Dan and I spent Friday night, catching up on some DVR’d TV, watching the Royals game, and severely missing Ina. It had only been 24 hours and we were ready to get in the car and drive 3 hours to bring her home.
Saturday, after I worked in the morning, Ina and I were finally reunited. Then we drove to my grandparents’ farm to get down to business and catch some fish.
Ina was very proud of her pink “handy fishing rob.” After we caught 5 fish in the first few minutes the kids got bored until we told them it was a contest.
Then, every time Ina caught a fish she would yell, “I beat Hallaway.”
She’s not competitive at all.
We ended up taking the fish we caught to their “new home,” a new pond my dad dug a few years ago. The kids really loved that concept. Then Ina told me she wanted a new home.
I chose not to listen.
Here is our meal plan for the week. It is getting pretty lazy, I suppose better than going out to eat for every meal.
- Sunday: out to eat for my niece’s birthday
- Monday: Dan is making breakfast for dinner. Yum.
- Tuesday: shrimp tacos with cabbage slaw
- Wednesday: one pot pasta with broccoli
- Thursday: Kima Curry with brown rice and roasted broccoli
- Friday: Dan to grill
- Saturday: out to eat or something social
Have a great and safe holiday tomorrow!
