Yesterday was so nice for my husband and me. We drove to Indianapolis to listen to our oldest son preach and he did a fabulous job!! Not just because we’re his parents, because it really was good teaching. We all went out for lunch later at Chili’s and really enjoyed the time together. It is so good to be with family. It did make us miss our other son and daughter-in-law. You just sort of have to put those feelings sometimes, in a little box. When your kids live away from you, you have to learn to just go with the flow and not wish for something different than what you have. It helps you enjoy the moments. When we visit with our son and his wife in Virginia, we’ll miss the oldest one’s family. It’s truly a different perspective for us but we just have to catch the joy in each moment and carry it in our hearts. It’s different but not any better or any worse, just different. That’s really, really okay, when you know that loves flows through the branches of the family tree.
It’s been a long day and as I’ve told you all before, Mondays are not my favorite days. But all in all, I woke up so it’s not all bad!!
Tonight we eat leftovers. The refrigerator contains leftover bean soup, sausage, 1 pork loin, 1 baked potato and some broccoli. Of course, it almost always has eggs, milk, juice, etc. But I'm getting all the leftovers cleaned out tonight. I'll nuke another potato, slice and fry those 2 potatoes up, fry the rest of the sausage, and put bean soup out for supper. My hubby is home today so he gets the pork loin and broccoli for lunch. That's easy for him to nuke because he's not much on cooking for himself when he's busy outside or running around doing odd jobs. I think there's one cupcake left and he can have that for a sweet. Tuesday I'll get to start "clean". It's been so long since we had a meatloaf and I just LOVE meatloaf. I might fix that Tuesday and have some sweet potato fries. I need something else to go with it but it's just not coming to me yet . . . maybe green beans. Wednesday, I think fish or maybe fish Tuesday - oh who knows. I think I'd better sit down and give it a little thought. Preparation is everything!!! It will also help me in thinking through my meals and preparing things with healthy eating a little more uppermost in my mind.
I think I'll do that right now. Talk to you tomorrow!!
