Sorry I haven’t been posting as much as I like to, but I haven’t left the house since Tuesday and that was just for swim class! Tomorrow isn’t looking like I will be leaving either. Not that I mind, I actually like staying at home but it isn’t much to talk about.
Today Tony texted me though and said he wanted to eat more fish. It is amazing how a small text will send me down a rabbit hole of what I need to do with eating. I suddenly realized with this simple text that once a month meals may not be for us. I should change the way I look at dinner and that sent me looking for help. See as it stands right now we have pizza EVERY Friday night. This is something the boys love and it it is great! So that is one night a week. We also tend to have another special night. This could be chicken wings or grilling or any number of things. So that is 2 nights. Then you add fish 2 nights a week, a left over night and we really only have 2 nights a week when we would have a need for something like once a month meals.
However we did decide that if we were to get an infant placement, once a month meals would be coming back and would come back fast. Infants change everything, but we don’t know when that will be so we need to do what is best for us in the meanwhile.
The boys are doing well. Nathaniel and I still have a slight cough but other then that we are well. After this last cold though, I am glad I like staying at home. I don’t want to go through that again anytime soon!
