It is making getting dressed a bit of a chore because I have made up in my mind already that I should be wearing sweaters and boots and it is just not weather appropriate yet.
Since I work weekends, I don't have the opportunity to so much recuperate from the previous week but I do still use my weekend for preparing for the new week to come. Being a stay-at-home mom during the day and working part time in the mornings or evenings means a busy schedule and a tired mom. I do still usually benefit from the kids' nap time in the afternoon to write, make menus, browse my favorite blogs, or occasionally I even snooze a bit. When I make my menu I include breakfast and lunch each day and even mentally calculate in two snacks a day for the kids. This way I can make a more accurate shopping list and hopefully stick to my budget and not buy things we don't need or end up running out of options half way through the week.
This is my basic dinner meal plan:
Monday ~ Pasta Carbonara, veggie
Tuesday ~ Ultimate Chicken Fingers, frozen dinner rolls (Chebe), veggie
Wednesday ~ Roasted pork loin, hasselback potatoes, veggie
Thursday ~ Gluten-free sandwich rolls for Philly cheese steaks, oven fries, veggie
Friday ~ Scrambled Eggs, pumpkin muffins
Saturday ~ Spaghetti casserole, veggie
Sunday ~ We're eating at the church fall festival :-)
