Agh. Labor Day. The first Labor Day in years that I haven’t “worked”. I was able to <gasp> sleep in slightly. What a concept!
I’m really loving staying home with Charlie. I don’t feel the constant struggle between work and family- when I was working- I always felt like I was being pulled in 25 directions and doing a half-assed job at all of it. Now I can focus with so much more clarity. Grocery shopping and meal planning is fun again and not a chore. Doing laundry isn’t a race to get it done before the next thing. Cleaning just happens organically. Breathe in. Breathe out. Ahh.
Meal 1: Kitchen Sink Scramble, Potato Panckaes (made from left over mashed potatoes from a few nights ago) and grapes.
Meal 2: Chicken Salad wth basil mayo, chicken and celery. I roasted off a couple of chicken breasts and just diced them up so they were available for spontaneous meals.
