Meal Plan Failure

Its Monday! I have been out of the loop for a few days but I’m back! I have been busy crafting, playing with the kids, and just relaxing.  I have been trying to stock pile some crafts so I could do a local market to raise money for a friends mission trip but the market happens to fall on one of the days I will be visiting the hubs! So excited he gets a little leave before leaving country, though I don’t know how I feel about driving 12 hours with a 17 mo old and a 5 mo old! Haha! I plan on driving at night while they sleep so hopefully that will help a little! We shall see.. More to come on that another day!

First being Monday it is the day I had planned on making Meal Planning Mondays and what I came to realize is Meal Planning just doesn’t work for me! Haha! I tried it and I failed miserably! Im sure once the kids are bigger it will be more than necessary but right now its just me.  The monkey will eat whatever and I always have plenty of things on hand that he will eat. 

I really want Roccos new cook book bc I feel that I’m in a food rut.. Same old things and I also find that though I usually love to cook I really don’t like doing it just for me!  I really need to be healthy and eat healthy and sometimes its just crazy hard to do!  Sometimes I just want something quick and easy and not a long process meal!
Last week I bought carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, oranges and grapes.. sadly I never opened the broc or Cauil, I ate carrots once and I totally forgot about the oranges and the grapes I ate maybe half of! I also bought Zucchini and Squash for a dinner and I failed to cook em before they went bad!  I bought an entire thing of fresh chicken breasts and I didn’t separate and freeze them in time so they all went to waste! OMG!  Probably at least $50 worth of groceries down the drain!

The biggest problem is our Fridge.. When we moved into our new house we intended on getting a new fridge so we put our old one in the garage so we didn’t have to move it again.. well then the car broke down and I spent my fridge fund on fixing the truck! Boo… So my fridge still sits in the garage!  I thought no big deal I will buy a new fridge in a few weeks but now we are going to be spending a good amount in travel and hotel to visit the hubs so it will have to wait another month or so… And its terribly inconvenient and easy to forget about things! Oops!  I have got to get my dad over here and get it inside so this doesn’t happen again! 

My goal this week is to go for a walk with the kids at least 3 times.. I need to make it a daily habit and I will get there but gotta start small!  I don’t know why I have just been so ridiculously lazy feeling! Im just tired and drained and still getting used to pretty much being a single mom for a while.  Plus Miss Thang has been waking up every 2 hours through the night so that adds to the tiredness!  BUT luckily the last 2 nights in a row shes slept between 6-7 hours, ate and went right back to sleep and slept for another 5-6! Hopefully she keeps this going!

Some days I look at the caious of having 2 lil ones and think HOLY COW! How am I gonna do this with 3! Lol but I know it will all work out!
