Motivation for your Monday: Menu Plans


Happy Monday! Mind you, when the alarm went off at 4:30 this morning, I wanted desperately to go back to sleep ~ but got up to help prepare the husband for the day, and then once he left I made my first cup of coffee and decided to just take a deep breath, enjoy a slow paced morning and fought that inner desire to go back to bed. Yes, it is Summer and I could indeed do that if I desired, but really .... I just have better days when I stay up. I have a more focused day, and I don't feel so behind.

We had a great weekend, and while I thought that maybe Summer would bring more regular blogging, it seems that I blog when time and desire meet one on one face to face. Weekends find me desiring to spend more time with the family. Friday night we had an extra teen in the house, Saturday I took all the kids to the wavepool for a good chunk of the day, then when we got home the A/C repair guy was here to help find a solution to our cooling problem. Then as soon as he left, I had to deliever the twins to a sleep over, and the teen and her friend were already at the friend's house. What did that mean?! Alone time for the hubby and I. What a great treasured time it was.

It's been a while but thought I would begin to particpate in Menu  Plan Monday with Laura over at Organized Junkie! So, here is our menu (which is from yesterday - Saturday). So, that is your motivation for this Monday ~ to get that menu plan ready! Why? Because once you do, you know longer have to spend time on thinking "What should I cook", "Do I have everything I need?", Etc. Menu Plans however do not always work with all people. *Just saying*
