First full week of the new year! Back to reality with a full work week (for the husband), food accountability, and much (much) less sugar. Boo... hiss.
|This was mid-day on Thursday and the snow continued through the evening.|
Jack was supposed to return to school on Thursday after a 1 1/2 week winter break, but we got a mini-snow storm that day so I kept him home despite our local district being in session (I felt the weather actually warranted closing, but they were also, strangely enough, the only local district back in session and chose to stay open. It was just weird all around). We've been stuck in the house a lot lately and everything is closed today due to dangerously low temperatures and I suspect they will be closed again tomorrow as well (which means no school for Jack again. Poor kid!) and I think we're all tired of being stuck at home so much!
|A little Monster Jam re-enactment.|
We did have a pretty busy weekend with the boys going to Monster Jam on Saturday and more dress shopping with my sister on Sunday. At least we escaped the house for a little bit!
It's supposed to be stupid cold here this week. What is stupid cold, you may ask? Highs in the low single digits with well below zero windchill. No. thank. you. I pretty much just want to make a pot of soup and jump right into it and live there for the next several days, but since my husband won't abide by soup more than once a week here's what we'll actually be eating:
Sunday: Late meal for us - BBQ Pulled Pork Nachos
Monday: Soup (from the freezer)
Tuesday: French Dip Sandwiches (Crock Pot) with Roasted Broccoli
Wednesday: Chicken Lo Mein
Thursday: Leftovers/Freezer Meal
