Meal Planning Monday and a freakin' fire.

Today I tried to burn down our house. It was scary and I had to use the fire extinguisher.  We're all fine and have finally stopped crying.  Except for me.  I am still crying because my house is now covered in that extinguisher dust stuff.  It's a bit reminiscent of my college dorm days when some wise guy decided to pull a fire alarm and use the extinguishers. Except now I'm left to clean the mess, not the college cleaning ladies.  Awesome.

Also, apparently I'm 2 and have an ear infection. And a sinus infection. Awesomer.

Our calendar is jam packed this week, which makes perfect sense.  I only get sick when I have lots to do. Awesome-ist.

My cynicism is only temporary, I promise.  I'll be back to my cup-half-full, all smiles and sunshine self tomorrow.


Dinners around here are going to be no-brainers this week.  Here's our menu:

Monday: 3-Cheese Chicken Penne Pasta Bake (a carry-over from last week)

Tuesday: Chicken Caesar Pasta Bowl (yes, 2 pastas in a row. I didn't plan very well.)

Wednesday: Crockpot Swedish Meatballs (easiest meal for the busiest day)

Thursday: Cheesy Apple Cinnamon Raisin Grill (basically a glorified grilled cheese sandwich. J has conferences late and I have a meeting.)

Friday: English Muffin Breakfast Pizzas

What on earth happened???
What's really scary is I don't even have a fire extinguisher...I think I should go buy one. Can you just wipe that stuff up?
Hang in there! :)

Happened to me too! Let me know if you need anything!!! And I am glad everything is ok with the fire that is way scary! Take Care!

I just got over a sinus infection--no fun! Especially when you have little ones to take care of and lots of stuff to do. Praying you get over it quickly.
