We made it to the weekend.   Anything fun planned?   Cooking anything?

I have, of course, travel baseball and softball all weekend.  Tonight DD has softball practice.   I have both kids until about 10:00 tonight.  During her practice DS and I will run over to the grocery and get cooler supplies for the weekend.   I always pack DD some string cheese, Triscuits, and cut up fruit.   I'll see what fruit they have on sale.  She might eat some chicken salad too- need that protein.  Just need to avoid anything warm.   DS will hate the grocery run, but too bad.

After that I will grill pork chops in Dale's marinade for us all.   We'll do brown rice and salads with it.   I have broccoli, bell peppers, and banana peppers in my garden to add to salads.   I also have carrots and celery in the fridge.  

I want to cook Saturday night too.  I'm tired of eating out and tired of paying for it.

Not much happening tonight... Amber and the kids will come over though so that will be fun. 

Tomorrow morning is family breakfast and then I need to get a menu done and get to the grocery store.  Like you, Tracy, I am tired of eating out and also tired of paying for it!  I need to get myself set straight and on a schedule again with groceries! 

I think my hubby has to work tomorrow... he hates that but I love it!  We really need the money... but I do feel sorry for him in that hot hot hot shop!  Tomorrow night I will watch the kids while Nick & Amber go to blu-ray fest. 

Sunday is church and then I have laundry up the wazoo to do~  I still haven't caught up from my vacation a month ago!  Also need to wash my summer quilt, I noticed it is starting to look a little dingy even though we don't sleep directly under it... the flat sheet is between us and it but I think it's Brady that is getting it dirty on top.  He is all over the place at night... either under the covers up next to one of us or all sprawled out with all 4 legs up in the air on top of the covers.

Sunday night just relaxing and getting ready for the new work-week... I'm ready for a week-end away from work, nothing but drama and sad stuff today.  My supervisor took us out to lunch (he insisted this was his treat!) and I got an olive burger... but the burger was way too charcoal-y... tasted like someone rolled it around in the cinders of a grill.  I don't mind a little of that but this was not good.  I didn't even eat half of it and brought the rest home, I hope my hubby will eat it.  I did eat all my fries though, they were good.

Drama with my closest co-worker - big bossman reamed her a new one for not returning a phone call.  I felt bad for her and I knew he was ticked so I did warn her before she got in this morning so at least she was prepared for it... as much as you can be. 

Oh my word.... I wrote this Friday and came in this morning and I hadn't finished or posted it... posting now.. Embarassed

I'm glad I got to that last paragraph.   I was thinking "why is she saying tonight when it's a Friday post and it's Monday?"   Sounds like a packed weekend.   Did you get your grocery run done?

No, I didn't make it to the grocery store.  We had a couple unexpected expenses (new filter for furnace & dehumidifyer, etc.) so my hubby ran up to get a few things for lunches this week and I will try to do supper from what we have in the pantry & freezer.
