Well, I’d like to think I know how to party, but the truth is I’m old and my Friday night consisted of deep cleaning our fridge. It was definitely unexpected but as we cleared out and organized the fridge, we realized that it didn’t make sense to stop there, so we continued on..
This consisted of Robby completely deconstructing the insides of not only the fridge but also the freezer. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel accomplished, especially because it was completely impromptu but it was definitely needed.
I still have to clean the side doors but overall I am happy with the result. It will at the least continue to remain clean until we’ve run out of the meals we had delivered from Tovala and Martha Stewart & Marley Spoon.
Typically, I try my hardest to only use one meal delivery service for the month but somehow these managed to slip by me. Though to be honest, I don’t mind. It means we don’t have to come up with a meal plan for sometime and also means I can avoid the question I get each night from Robby, “What do you want to have for dinner?” I despise that question because as a SAHD, it’s his responsibility to figure it out. At the end of a work day, I do not have the energy nor the brain power to come up with something that the kids will eat and I will eat1We’re the pickiest eaters.
In the end, the additional meals provides Robby2Let’s be honest, me. with a bit of a grace period before he has to start meal planning. It’s nice not to have to stress about getting a plan ready before the start of a new week, especially because my ultimate goal is to have a monthly meal plan. I’m not sure how realistic that will be but I am willing to give it a shot.
Do you meal plan? How many days, weeks, or months do you typically plan for? What have you find to be the biggest challenge?
