Monday re-do

This joker stayed home from school today. He claims to be 'sick'. And while he has spent the day laying low, there is no fever, no aches, no cough, no discernable sign of illness at all. {Lest you think me unsympathetic, last night he said that his legs were shaky and his feet were red. He has a million excuses stored up in his noggin}
So my Monday routine was hampered by kid. Bah. If all goes according to plan, tomorrow I'll get a Monday re-do. Except that I have to go to the grocery store. Double bah. I'm trying to meal plan for two weeks, and get all the things I need for those meals and have them in the house {see: be on top of things}. Which turns out to be the easy part. I also have to empty out the fridge and look thru the cupboards to see what ingredients I already have. The sucky, not so easy part. I'll see how the meal planning thing goes. In theory it's full of the awesome! But my reality involves 2 nights of driving to soccer practice during peak mealtime hours, and there are just so many thing I can make in the crock pot.

Well, I hope the shaky legs and red feet are better by tomorrow. :-)

Good luck with your Monday re-do - and your meal planning. I hope it works as well for you as it does for me. We definitely stray from it from time to time!
