I have had the most clumsy week ever. I've dropped 2... not 1 but 2 very large ice soda messy messy messy all over the floor. While baking Kaseys cake, I went to take out the cupcakes and caught my hand on the top of the oven... ouch. Then on Easter morning I was about to make some bunny shaped pancakes for breakfast and I dropped the whole bowl full of pancake batter into a sink full of dirty soapy dish water, needless to say we didn't have pancakes for breakfast. So I'm trying to pin point where my clumsiness is coming from, but until I figure it out I'm kind of leery to hold anything to fragile. I'm not sure where I was going with all of that, because on top of the clumsiness I've felt completely brain dead. Forgetful and clumsy what a wonderful combination, on top of the fact that my brain is hurting more frequently then it has since I got my wisdom teeth pulled. So in all of this I'm going to really go a different direction because that goes hand in hand with being brain dead and clumsy... I'm also scattered, I mean all over the place and it's probably why I never get anything done. My husband says I need to write things down, but then it would just be one more written thing I could say "oh I can do that tomorrow" about. So back to my thought, I've decided that the most horrible thing I have to do all week (and I'm sure some of you can agree with me) is making the weeks menu. I go shopping once a week, and before I go I write down what we will eat that week, so that I can get everything for those particular meals. I HATE THIS! I have a super hard time coming up with things to eat. I hate eating the same boring meals over and over and over. But I get sucked into the simpleness of it. Sure hubby would be happy if we ate tacos every other night... but the kids wouldn't and I have grown to despise tacos. So I've tried to make a list of possible meal ideas. Things I feel confident in making, that are easy enough, and don't require crazy ingredients that simple folk like myself don't have around. So here's where you all come in real handy. Please take a moment and think of 4 or 5 or more of your families favorite meals, or things you liked to eat while growing up. Leave your ideas in my comments please... I would greatly appreciate all the ideas I can get... so instead of worrying about whats for dinner I can have time to drop things and forget stuff!
