I have one more week of freedom! One more week! Oh my merciful heaven, I have one more week of freedom and my summer to do list still has 14 things left on it! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Where did the summer go?
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE teaching my high school students, LOVE it....most days! I will be ready to see them, it's just the thought of routine that I'm not feeling all gushy about right now. And while it took me the better part of 3 weeks to get into the easy move and groove of summer, I have fully embraced it. Fully! And the thought of having a massive To do list, post it notes posted daily, schedules to remember, responsibilities, workout schedules (I really should be talking about me, but I'm talking about Hannah's workout schedule for basketball and cross country), band schedules, and I could go on and on...it kind of fills me with a little panic! Because my summer to do list is not finished! AHHHHHHHHHHHH!
And since my family has one piece of crusty bread, and a few tomatoes to feast on for breakfast, I think I'll start with going to the HEB to retrieve some groceries for the week. But, first I have to plan out my meals. So, I better get started...but I really don't want to....'cause I've fully embraced the summer where the living is easy!
But, before I go, I have a little question for you. A few years ago I did the 30 day gourmet where you cook your meals ahead of time for the entire month and then freeze them and use throughout your month. It was a lot of work but it saved us money and I got into the monthly groove until Mr. Incredible started getting sick of some of the meals. So, goodbye 30 day gourmet! I then moved on to Organizer Junkie's meal plan Monday meme where we all post our menus for the week and then try to actually stick to our menu. It really made me stay on track with our budget and schedules and I still like that. But I'm looking for a change. Can anyone relate?
I have been looking into E Mealz. This website plans your weekly meals based on where you shop and if you are on WW points or regular meals and it is all planned out for you even your grocery list and they advertise that you will only spend $70-$80 on dinner for the week which sounds pretty good. We have eaten out the last 3 evenings and spent more than that! With my current list filled to overflowing with grocery items, having this little service kind of sounds like a good thing and for only $5 a month.
What do you think about E Mealz? Have you tried it? Or do you know something better? I know, I know, I need to get back into my routine and be more disciplines and school starting will do wonders for that, but I just thought I would ask how you plan your meals? Don't lecture me, just love me. I'm asking for you help and I would love to know what you do!
I better run. I'll be the girls with 4 carts at the grocery store and with a big cup of Starbucks in one hand because this Momma has been out of coffee for the past 3 days, oh the horror!!! Y'all have a blessed day...don't forget to tell me how you handle meal planning, please!!!!
