Good morning, Monday readers! Well, I’m actually writing this Sunday morning, but I have Monday thoughts on this Sunday.
If you recognize the source of the subtitle, kudos to you! I am waiting (with baited breath) for the sequel (supposedly in October according to the often-incorrect Wikipedia).
The last several months have been a delicate balancing act (read: epic fail at that) of being the mama of a first grader, Star Wars and Nerf Gun enthusiast, and cub scout. Oddly enough, the last has tipped the scales into insanity and hilarity quite often.
Added to that biweekly trips to Aldi (that turn into day-long excursions as lunch is usually included) and the following day spent cooking and prepping for the following week? Yes, writing time has been almost nonexistent.
And, for a long time, I worried that I had lost my writing mojo. I would stare at my list of dishes that I had prepared, new and exciting ones, and felt…blah. Staring at a blank screen with a blinking cursor (and imagining the cursor taunting you with each blink…”You can’t do this; you can’t do this!”) is far more intimidating than staring at a blank spiral notebook page and a pen (which is how I usually compose fiction).
My Muse had escaped me, it seemed. And, then, very recently (in both terms of fiction and here), a new Muse appeared. In other words, the words that have been trapped in my head on the tips on my fingers, almost, have suddenly started purging themselves on paper–and on the screen.
I feel rejuvenated.
So, those people that I am related to (cough cough, my sister, cough cough) who have wondered why they have haven’t been receiving notifications about new posts, you should receive one soon.
This week abuts spring break (yay! finally!) and a much-anticipated trip to Dallas (to celebrate our anniversary last November, Valentine’s Day, and everything in between), so the menu plan is going to look kinda…odd.
Are you ready for the super-charged meal plan?
Or the what-was-she-thinking meal plan?
Here we go!!!
Saturday: Peeps be sick (or, at least Muffin was). I had eaten at a Chinese buffet for brunch that turned into b’lu’pper because I ate too much. Muffin was finally able to hold down two corn dogs from Sonic (yay! 50 cent corn dogs and happy hour drinks!), and I’m not sure what Josh had.
Sunday: Asian-Paste Pork Loin with Two Onions, rice, tomato slices
Monday: grilled boneless ribs with a rub, grilled asparagus, French bread with butter
Tuesday: Mexican pizzas, chips, salsa
Wednesday: leftovers or hot dogs
Thursday: breaky for dinner–Josh is off so eggs over easy, sausage from Aldi, biscuits (like Grands but from Aldi), and hash brown patties
Friday: mini pizzas (Aldi had mini pizza crusts with sauce on clearance)
Saturday: dinner in Dallas
Sunday: dinner on the road or snacky lunch
What is your menu looking like this week?
