This has been a good week, but we are all struggling to find the routine we need to make things run more smoothly. M, JM, and I were able to go to the grocery store in Bigtown (G'ville) last night and really stock up the pantry. I bought two great big bags of chicken and lots of vegetables. I am going to depend more than ever on the crock pot this semester, I think. Tuesday nights will be the busiest. JM is singing with Virginia in the TMU Community choir--I am so happy about that. JT has a night class. So, I am thinking that just having a slow cooker full of soup and some bread on hand will make it easy for everyone just to come in and eat as their schedules allow. I can put in some chicken, carrots, potatoes and onions for our favorite "Redwall" stew this week. If I make the tea in the morning, it will all be ready when my eaters are.
I feel like I talk about busyness too much--sorry about that. I am not unhappy, just trying to figure out how to manage the days and get the most our of them AND take care of the family the Lord has lent to me for this season. I treasure having them at home with Michael and me.
God bless and keep each of you this week as you serve Him . . .
