Hi everyone! I apologize for this being a few days late, things haven’t been going so well with our apartment and the noise and when one part of my life is sucking, I often let it spill into other areas. In this case, just the thought of putting any effort into blogging sounded awful. What makes this the most sad, is that I love blogging, I know I do, but when things start to overwhelm me I just lose any joy I felt in everything. 🙁
Likewise, since I was feeling so down, my Sunday meal plan was lacking. Seamus and I just barely pulled together enough ideas to fill the week, and it’s a pretty easy week. We went to my parent’s for dinner Sunday, and my birthday is Wednesday, we needed 5 meals and it took forever to create our menu. Oh well, we’re finding we don’t have a lot we can do to get them to stop the noise, which makes the whole situation even worse. However, if anyone is a lawyer or specializes in this sort of thing, and can offer some advice, please email me.
I really am sorry for being so depressing, I know most people don’t come to someone’s blog to read the negative crap, they come to be lifted up, but I’m feeling really lost and wanted to be real with my readers. I hope you can all understand.
Now… Here’s our Sunday Meal Plan
Breakfast for the Week: GF bagel with Egg and Cheese
Lunch: Romaine lettuce leaves wrapped with Ham and Cheese, Grapes, Watermelon and Baby Carrots
Sunday: Mom and dad’s house
Monday: Leftover Chicken Fried Rice with Veggies
Tuesday: Steak with chick pea and tomato salad
Wednesday: Out to celebrate my birthday!
Thursday: Marinated Chicken and Zucchini
Friday: Hot Dogs and Fries
Saturday: Leftover Pulled Pork and Mac ‘n Cheese
Certainly not the healthiest menu we’ve ever created, but at least we made a menu, shopped and are sticking to it. You have to focus your happiness on something, I’m going to focus on the fact that we still made a menu and that we’re not just eating our emotions.
And for the fun of it, because he’s just so darn cute – here’s a little picture of my Emmett, playing at grandma’s.
As usual, I’m linking up with Mommy Run Fast and JillConyers.com. Check them out, and link-up!
I’m sorry that things are sucking right now. I have to be very careful not to let one sucky part of life make everything else suck too. My husband has taught me the fine art of compartmentalizing 🙂 He’s still better at it than I am.
Thanks Jill! I’ve never been good at compartmentalizing, BUT this may be the time that I start investigating how to get better at it. I don’t want to live each day like it sucks, because it totally doesn’t! Thanks so much for visiting!
Ugh- I totally get how that would be impacting everything else. I hope there’s some kind of solution out there for you! Your son is so adorable. And enjoy your birthday week!!
Thanks Laura! Emmett’s the best, and totally makes me smile everyday!!
