Since My Airman is back on swings, I have been trying to have a nice lunch ready before he goes to work. I was struggling with making everything in the morning while still trying to take care of the baby and get ready for the day.
I'd rather stay up late than get up early, so I finally came up with a brilliant idea -- remember how I was bored while my honey's at work? Well, now, when the baby goes down for the night, I look at my menu and get as much prepared the night before. Then, each morning, I only have to mix a few things together and/or heat it up on the stove or in the oven. Tonight I will be making Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and corn... and maybe some rolls. Oh, and apple crisp for dessert -- if it's not too late.
An added bonus of this new schedule is that I can spend more time with my hubby and son without having to rush around to make lunch, pack the lunchbox, get laundry done, and do other general tidying up. It has been working out just perfectly! I know that ordering our home won't always be this easy, but from reading other homemaker's blogs, I know that it is possible to make things work.
Yet another reason I'm glad to be a homemaker -- I can choose to make my schedule fit however and wherever it needs to! :o) I love it!
