Survival Mode...

Well, it's happened. I am now just too ill to cook like I normally do. This past week we had take out so many times that I was beginning to feel like we may as well just turn the kitchen into another bedroom because it wasn't being used any longer.LOL I hate not preparing my family's meals but I know that the kids can cook if desperate enough. I just sent my wonderful DH to the grocery store armed with a menu of easy meals that anyone 12 and over can prepare and serve. No more extravagant meals for a while but at least we won't be hungry this next

I really think that pregnancy is a blessing in itself. I rely more on all of my children to pitch in and help where normally I might just do it myself. They learn more about what needs to be done and they learn skills that last them their whole lives. It's hard on me because I really want to be up and about but I also get to see that they are growing into confident, self sufficient young adults who won't starve when they leave the nest.

This week we'll be eating...
Beef Stroganoff
Spaghetti and meatballs
French bread pizza
Pork roast with noodles and veggies
Taco stuff
Oven BBQ Chicken

Survival mode is o.k. for a few will be o.k. and the kids are learning so very much - life skills - you know?

Hang in there!

Thanks De'Etta. Hanging is about all I'm doing I probably have 4-8 weeks of this left, which isn't soooo bad.

Oh Lisa, I've been praying for you. I keep checking back to see if you are still in survival mode.
