School has also been occupying my time. I am buckling down and getting a nutrition degree from a local college. BOY! Is it TOUGH to go back to school full time, be a full time mom, homeschooling parent, parent of children with multiple and special needs, married, and dealing with lots of crap. hmmm. but somehow we have SURVIVED.
However, it is time, I am going to try to push myself out of survival mode and back into the land of the living. I guess I can't stay there forever. I have not been taking care of myself nor my family as good as i should be. My children are at their dads for 5 days. I have a list about a mile long of things i NEED to accomplish during these 5 days. One of those things being that I need to get a menu plan back together with recipes and grocery lists and just do it. I need to spend the time preparing the healthy meals again and providing some variety to my family. I need to get out of my hole and take care of the people that are still here.
So this week, after getting my homework done, my top priority is first to get the menu planned - at least a months worth. I need to be able to rotate and have variety again. I also plan on organizing my very chaotic life, and once again finding those things that are important to me and figuring out what that is, BUT that is for another blog.
Come back and look by Saturday night I hope to have all my menu plans posted. I will be sharing. If I find some yummy new treats to make I will share those as well.
Sometimes taking care of ourselves is the hardest thing we can do especially when it seems like you have been pulled through the gutter. If you are in this place or find yourself in this place know that you ARE worth taking care of. Your health and your families health is important. Try to push through and hopefully on the other side you will find some peace knowing that you are doing something good for yourself and those you love.
