Swings, S'mores and Shooting Hoops

Well then!  Friday is here again.  Its been quite the week.  And knock on wood, not the bad kind.  This week we have really settled into our new routines.  We have had to move some things around and that has been the hardest part for me.  Mostly bedtime stuff.  Any other moms out there with kids who are shocked every night that they have to brush their teeth?  If this is my biggest fight of the day, I know I should count my blessings.   I will.  I do.  But for the love of all things, kid, go brush your teeth!



Today I'm linking up with Lindsay from The Flynnigans, Charlotte from My Pixie Blog and Beth from Coffee until Cocktails.  Every Friday we share all the things that we are happy, grateful and thankful for!  Stop on over and see what everyone else is sharing today! Here are a few things that made me happy this week.

Menu Plan 3•30•20

And just like that, its Monday again.  A friend reminded me last night,  that the day will be what we make of it and I am determined to make it a good day.  Im not even expecting it to be a great day.  This weekend was a bit of a train wreck.  What should have been a tune up on our AC turned in to replacing the inside unit.  Again.  Long story short, we did not have the extended warranty.  Now we do.  And we paid a pretty penny for it.  Again.  Le sigh.  Im over it.  It's done and Im moving on.

Menu Monday

Let's talk about something happier.  Like food.  The last few weeks may have been frustrating, but Im switching mindsets here and going to be thankful for what we have.  Because lets face it.  If there is food on the table every night, that is a blessing in its own.  We only had a to grab a few things this weekend because we are going to keep it super simple.  Like meat and salad simple.  And yes, rice!  Because thats how we like it.  I actually found a 50lb bad for $16 so theres that!  Its one of those hard to come by things here and this bag will be enough for us to split with Grandma.  We are set for months!  So here is what we have lined up this week.

Cameras, Cleaning and Coconut Oreos

Weekends aren't the same when you are self quarantined and the city is on lockdown.  Most weekends I look forward to hopefully getting out of the house and going to the park or finding a new trail.  But now the weekends look more like, me catching up on cleaning while David is working or hanging out on the patio because my doctors have asked me to stay home and stay away from anyone not living in the house with me.  I have been spending most of the day out back.  Because eating, reading and napping are all better outside.

Menu Plan 3•23•20

I know.  Its technically Tuesday and I usually post my Menu on Mondays but man, nothing is normal right now.  For now I am having to shop first then make a menu out of what we are able to get.  It looks like I am going to have to have David make one trip for meat and then go from there.  Well that was the plan anyways.


I sent him to the store on Sunday with a list and he came back with a handful of things.  Chips and snacks for the boys, shampoo and toothpaste.  But as far as my grocery list, he brought home an onion...  So on Monday, I told him I would go with him to the store and see what they had and make what I could find.  Came home from two stores with a damn near empty wallet and a handful of bags.  We bought what we could find.  Which was mostly snacks and processed food.  They were almost out of bananas even.  We still have enough food to get us though the week.  The boys are already tired of chicken legs, but they know that they get what they get! Here is what they are getting this week.

Menu Monday 3•16•20

So, I was halfway though filling my curbside cart when I noticed items were being marked "out of stock"!  So I went to see about swapping them out for other things.  Maybe a different rice brand...nope.  Ok, well then brown eggs instead of white!  Negative.  By the time I had somewhat gotten everything into my cart, half of it was no longer available.  So I text David and told him I was had one trip to the store in me before things really hit the fan so we were going to be winging the menu.

Menu Monday

That was the plan anyways.  Then we got to the store and they were out of EVERYTHING.  Meat, bread, eggs, and of course toilet paper.  The shelves were empty.  So we grabbed a few things Friday night and then had to go back Saturday morning and were thankfully able to get enough to throw together a week of dinners. Plus stuff for breakfasts and lunches because school was cancelled for another week.  Its not the prettiest menu but you best believe we are thankful for any food we could get.  Here is what we came up with...

Sunsets, Sunshine and Starbucks

Well today kinda went to hell in a hand basket.  Fast.  Y'all, the world has gone a little crazy and we all have to just find a way to get though this too.  Im annoyed just reading about all my friends struggling though the stores.  And I haven't left the house yet.  Hell, Im not even supposed to, but I might just have to make one weekend run out and call it as good as it gets.  Trying to stay positive.  As much as I can be anyways.  Plus its Friday.
