Menu Plan Monday

**3 months of morning sickness nearly knocking me off of my feet.
** 1.5 weeks of a head cold that would just not quit.
** A weekend with the flu which affected all 6 members of my family.

What does all that add up too? A seriously messy house and a lousy eating schedule. I am feeling somewhat better and so decided to throw together a quick menu plan. We have a really busy week, and some of us are still not quite feeling 100%. But it is important to have something planned.

It was not easy to look at food magazines/cookbooks when you are feeling a touch nauseas but I did it. So here goes...

Tuesday: spaghetti w/meatballs
Wednesday: (all boys are at basketball until 6)
meat loaf
mashed potatoes and gravy
rolls & a vegi
Thursday: (cub scouts in the afternoon)
scrambled eggs, sausage, muffins and juice
Friday: (B-ball until 6)
crockpot bbq chicken
potato salad
root beer float cake for dessert

Thanks for looking!

October was the last time I posted? Hmmm...that is interesting. I wonder if it has anything to do with me finding out I was preggo at the end of the month? Hmmm, something to think about.

The last 3 months have been an overwhelming time for me. Morning sickness hit fast and hard. Not to mention being absolutely exaughsted 99% of the time. A busy holiday season. 4 kids in various activities. A husband who is always busy with his work and church committments and can get very crazy.

It is the middle of January, and I am already looking ahead to February. It will be a busy month for me. Very busy. I have to finish up Cub Scouts & prepare for the Blue and Gold Ceremony. My son in a different cub scout den was picked to be the den's assistant for the month. Which means I am the den's assistant for the month! My Mom is coming (yeah!), Girl Scouts has picked up again, I am teaching in our Primary all month (sharing time)oh and I have 3 birthdays in February. Whew. It kind of makes me tired just thinking about it.

Well I know that I can't go how I have been. I just can't. It's too tired and too stressful. So what is my plan? A routine. This is not easy right now because I am having a hard time waking up in the morning!But I know how much it helps for me to get up before my kids. So here we go, this is my plan!

**5:30 wake up time, take a shower and get dressed for the day
**start a load of laundry
**unload dishwasher
**make kid's lunches
**prayer and scripture time
**get breakfast together for kids

To be honest, this is all I am going to plan for now. I know it doesn't sound like much but we all have to begin somewhere!
