Exhausted...that's what I am. All I can say is that I'm 32, not 70. I thought having 3 kids over would be a cinch. My hubby was gone all weekend on a golfing trip for work (yeah, rough life, huh.) I thought I could handle it...easy peasy.
I wanted to be a good aunt so I cooked great meals, had a huge breakfast after taking them to church and now I am BEAT. Let's not even discuss how my 16 month old peed alllllllll over me right when church started...yeah, peed right on my LAP. I looked like I wet myself something fierce! So, I ran her home (my nieces and nephew were sitting with my in-laws, so I didn't ditch them) changed my clothes and the baby's and ran back to church just in time for the closing. I am not 18 any more...not even close. I'm totally beat.
Next time I'm either making sure the hubby is here or I'm ordering Pizza and fixing cereal in the morning! Not joking.
Here's my meal plan for the week. Easy recipes. The Maple Jack Pork Chops are beyond yummy. Fixing our fave stew on Friday. (click on the links for the recipes) I love food...
Monday: Snappy Meatball Heroes
Tuesday: Chicken Totilla Casserole
Wednesday: Going to family's house for din din
Thursday: Maple Jack Pork Chops SOOOO GOOD!- I'll post the recipe on Slow Cooking Thursday
Friday: Sweet Stew

OK, time for the DEALS ...
Since I'm all exhausted from the weekend, I'm going to find some Book Deals because when you're tired you know all you want to do is curl up on a big comfy couch, snuggle with a cozy blanket and read a book. I just practically stole some books on eBay this weekend. Nine hardcover books for $4.99 on one auction and another hardcover for $0.55! The shipping was surprisingly low, too. All of the books have been read once and are 'like new'. Love that.
