This morning I’m feeling the weight of a week on my shoulders–figuratively–and quite literally in my drowsy, sleepy eyes. Bobby’s had quite a bit of travel this week and was out the door while we all slept again early this morning. It is always by Friday in these situations that my strength/determination/pleasantness wane despite the fact that it was a very wonderful week.
I had very little to give this Friday morning. I went through the motions of fried eggs for breakfast quite robotically. My kids were so pleasant and rested this morning sitting up at the counter waiting for breakfast that it gave me just enough in my half-empty cup to press forward one last day. (Everyone was very pleasant except for Mr. You Know Who that is two.)
So now I am an exhausted but very pleasant mama.
Something new I’ve really enjoyed this week was finally having a printed menu taped to my refrigerator. I’ve always wanted to move away from keeping a menu on my iPad for lots of reasons. And yes, I usually keep our daily menu up on our dry erase daily menu board but I wanted everything written down for the week that could be adjusted with a little erasing and something that was more tangible for the kids to get involved with.
