What to Eat?

My stomach is growling but I can not decide what to eat. I think my mind is on Spring Break with the boys. I normally don’t do so bad with eating when school is going on. I guess I need that routine as do they. I have plenty to fix just nothing sounds good. Then, I do the bad thing and go get something. Bad me. Maybe the problem is I don’t want to cook. I guess I am on Spring Break as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

I started out cooking at the beginning of the week. I even made the main meal at lunch time so the evenings were free to munch on what was in the cupboard or fridge. Then Wednesday hit, I got lazy, didn’t cook. Now, I’m on the end of Spring Beak and I’m still not wanting to cook. At least we chose mostly chicken and not so much hamburgers for eating out. Sigh.

I bet it also has to do with me sleeping more since I don’t have to get up. Yikes! What am I going to do when they fly the nest? Oh, ya, back to work because there won’t be any obstacles for jobs. ๐Ÿ™‚

Now, that I posted those pictures of past dishes I made, I am really hungry. I don’t have any of that to make. I did get pork chops yesterday to make today, but not feeling it.

I love to watch the Food channel, was hoping Chopped was on to inspire me, but it is the Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives which makes me want to go get something. LOL

Do you guys eat out a lot?

I try to keep it to once a week but I have really blown that one this week.

Have a great weekend!

blog list Aprilย Love my Nook!

Question? What’s your favorite gadget?

2012

The apps I have downloaded on my phone. Love them. Keep track of things, organize, and budget. Awesome! I use these more than I call or text on my phone.

2013

I guess I was gadget-out! ;(

2014

My favorite would be my NOOK! I love it! I love it for all the apps. I love it for reading new author books that I would not haveย been able to read otherwise. ๐Ÿ™‚

Question? What makes you cynical?

2012

Fake friends. Especially when they are only out for themselves. Makes me want to disappear.

2013

I guess nothing made me cynical, amazing.

2014

One dictionary says, distrustful of human nature, mocking. Hmmm. I don’t like when someone you thought cared about you ends up not making an effort to be there when you need them. Trust disappears.

June 17

Question? The best hour of today was _____. Why?

2012

Eating pizza with my boys. Nice to eat together. Plus, Shay will be going to college soon and will not be eating with us too much except visits.

2013

I guess I did not have a best hour today. Maybe they were all the best! ๐Ÿ™‚

2014

Being at the movies with the boys and then eating afterwards at IHOP. Spending the time with them. It was Shay’s treat which made it even better. ๐Ÿ™‚ We had fun and it got us out of the house. ๐Ÿ™‚

June 18

Question? What’s the last meal someone cooked for you?

2012

It was when hubby was home on R&R in May. He is currently deployed. He made Mac&Cheese with hamburger in it. His favorite that he likes to make. Sure miss him.

2013

Guess no one cooked for me.

2014

Monday Shay made the sloppy joes while I caught up on dishes that go in the dishwasher. It was yummy and simple. He is learning. ๐Ÿ™‚

Letters Feb 2013 006ย Envelopes I made out of some wild paper! ๐Ÿ™‚

June 19

Question? What was the last personal letter you received?

2012

Gosh, I can not recall. I have had cards but not much is written in them. I think maybe the last letter was Farra when she was at Colby going to college last year.

2013

Obviously, no letters arrived.

2014

It’s been since Christmas and that was a newsletter type letter. We get mostly junk mail. BLAH.

Did you know…

Lazy-Day-001 (my personal photo creation 2bcreative2013)

The first Friday of September is National Lazy Mom’s Day! Who knew? Not me until I did a search looking up September holidays. I was actually wanting to know the main holidays for a possible wall hanging project I want to do this month. I was surprised to find this “National” holiday. What an awesome one!

It brings up a question.
Can a mom actually be lazy for a whole day?
I mean really, there are too many things to be done in a mom’s schedule.

Who is going to cook? The local fast food place maybe.

Who is going to find that lost item that no one seems to be able to find? It seems mom is the only one who can really look for something.

Who is going to actually wipe the counters off when they spill that drink? I swear I am the only one who can wipe anything off. I have even tried, I say tried to wait out wiping it off hoping they would. I guess they don’t mind the messes. Sigh.

Who is going to refill that roll of toilet paper? It is such a difficult task but yet seems I am the only one that can take the bar off the holder, slip the new roll of toilet paper on, and put the bar back in the holder. Rocket Science! ๐Ÿ™‚

Who is going to do the grocery shopping? Hmm, that one might be one mom has to do all the time. If your family is like mine, they come home with everything but what you send them to the store for and the bill is 2x what it should be.

I am pretty fortunate that I have a super great hubby that will help me out, so I could be lazy if I wanted to be. It actually drives me batty if I am not doing something productive for the day which results in something done for the family. I may not go 100 miles an hour all day, but there is always some kind of cleaning to be done, or a task that needs done. I have decided that this holiday is really not a holiday unless….

If you take the point of view of “lazy” being our appearance, well then I have that one down pat! ๐Ÿ™‚

Do I wear makeup everyday? Heck no, why bother when no one sees you. Hubby don’t mind, he is stuck with me. ๐Ÿ™‚ It is a real treat when I do wear makeup and I get all kinds of compliments. I know how to play that one. Scare them most days and then bam, the next day beautify myself. ๐Ÿ™‚

Do I change clothes when I get up? Well, it is not unheard of to be in the afternoon before I finally do. The positive of not having to work outside of the home. I really get them the days I dress up, tons of compliments. If I did that everyday, they wouldn’t notice. ๐Ÿ™‚

Is it Lazy of me or just preparing them?

Do I make everyone breakfast in the morning? Heck no again. I have trained them well, they make their own or they starve. I’m not a chef. I’m lucky they eat my supper time meal. ๐Ÿ™‚

Do I cook a meal every night? No way. I have lazy times. Iย didn’t need no holiday to tell me to. I figure this way if they can cook a few fast meals, they won’t starve when they move out. There is always some kind of fruit in the fridge to eat so it is all balanced and good. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thisย proves I can’t be entirely lazy.

Do I make them clean their rooms every time? Well, I just can not go in without picking something up. I have tried the waiting game and it just gets under my skin to have a complete messy room. I owe that to my grandma, she always made sure I picked my room up. I was afraid of her. My kids are not afraid of me. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Do I make them do their own laundry? It depends. When they get into high school, I most definitely make them. It is not unheard of if they leave it in the dryer I will put the clothes away when they are at school. Think they know that? ๐Ÿ™‚ If the younger ones are at home when I decide to do laundry, I will have them sort it and bring it to the laundry room. I will put it away. Tried the put your laundry away and it ends up on the floor of the closet and gets rewashed. I can’t have that.

Not all is failed.

I do have help with the trash.

They do wash off their plates and put them in the dishwasher.

They do dress themselves.

Once in awhile they feed their pets but the cat litter is still up to me. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

They like to scoop snow, when we actually get some.

They do help unload the groceries.

For some reason, they love to vacuum. Now if only I could get them to dust. ๐Ÿ™‚

In conclusion, it is not entirely possible to be a lazy mom. Not me anyway. I think in honor of the holiday, I will not cook tonight. ๐Ÿ™‚

Can you be lazy and what kind of lazy?
