I do have a life. Really.

I don't normally spend Saturday evening writing schedules, doing meal plans and thinking about grocery shopping, but that's what I've been doing tonight. See, I had this sudden realisation that the week ahead of me is going to take some very careful scheduling if we are going to survive it, especially as I managed to completely fail to notice that Tom's drama school's local 3:30pm and 6:30pm shows will clash with Caitlin's school dance group's 45 minute drive away 5:00pm performance next Saturday. It's a good thing I'd also failed to buy tickets for the dance performance thus making decisions about which show to watch very easy. It would help if I hadn't volunteered to serve supper and kid-wrangle backstage at both the drama shows...

I've also blithely planned to take Caitlin to check out another choir a half hour drive away on Monday afternoon at the exact same time as Tom has his local drama class, Caitlin has a dance performance on Wednesday night and I'm expecting this to be a busy week on the paid work front for me. I need to clone myself.

I am so impressed that you plan your meals, the whole day, not just lunch and dinner! All the best with surviving this upcoming week.

A few thoughts. Clearly, there is not enough alcohol and chocolate in that meal plan to get you through a week like that one! ALso, I just got back from kid wrangling at the drama tonight. My advice, pack a hip flask. Seriously, it's been a while but I reckon I'd prefer to give birth again rather than do that again!

I don't have to plan alcohol and chocolate, they happen spontaneously ;-)

Mim, what a week! The way you described it made me laugh, though. (I also like Sim's hip flask idea...)

It was interesting to read your menu for the week. I have to rush to do a Google search on several items:)

Oh my, you do need a clone.
