Have you ever seen the movie “What about Bob?” I think I’ve watched it at least fifty times. Anyway, what I really need is a vacation. Now, as any stay at home mom knows, it is really difficult to take a vacation from your problems when you stay at home with them every day or have to bring them with you on vacation. Do I need to spell this one out for you? As much as I love my children, sometimes, I dream of not having to be anywhere at a certain time, not having to cook dinner, not having to be finished with whatever it is that I’ve started by a certain time. Baby steps.
Next week, I’m going on a staycation. My kids don’t read this so it is safe to tell you that I will be at my mom’s while my husband stays home (and works) with the kids. I might go shopping or I might bake cookies or I might sleep until 8. Anyway, my husband will be cooking, so this week’s menu is full of things that he likes and I never cook. Are you ready? Here we go.
Sunday. Summer Coq Au Vin
Monday. Tuna Melts
Tuesday. Chile-Lime Pork
Wednesday. Camping – hot dogs and s’mores
Thursday. Egg Burritos
Friday. Pan Seared Salmon
Saturday. Grilled Lamb Chops with Peach Salsa
I will be eating cereal. Let me know how your meals go. Thanks.
