Do you ever feel like you could get so much more done if only there were a few extra hours in a day? That's how I feel after 2 weeks of my online classes. I have no idea how I'm going to make it until May. Practically every night after work I'm spending 1-2 hours on the classes, an hour on dinner, 30 minutes to shower and maybe an hour with Tom or watching TV before I go to bed and attempt to get 7 hours of sleep. The weekends consist of 10-12 hours for each class, 2-3 hours of cleaning/washing clothes, a hopeful 8 hours of sleep each night, 2 hours to plan the menu for the next week and get to the grocery store. Its exhausting. I really need to come up with a better schedule for this, but I have no idea how.
Luckily I haven't got to the point where I've started filling our freezer with microwavable meals, but I will admit, its been very tempting. But since I enjoy cooking so much I consider it a much needed break from credits and debits, journal entries, trial balances, purchasing and inventory.
Sunday - turkey breast with stuffed, mashed potatoes and corn
Monday - minestrone soup with Italian bread
Tuesday - chicken with a mushroom cream sauce
Wednesday - french dip sandwiches
Thursday - shrimp with spicy linguine
Friday - burgers and fries
Wal-mart has tempted me with 3 pound turkey breasts since after Thanksgiving. I finally picked one up yesterday for dinner tonight! And yes, Thursday's meal of shrimp and spicy linguine has only been featured on my menu's about 3 times and I've still yet to make it. I'm determined to do so on Thursday! I'm also rather excited about the burgers on Friday. Tom's uncle bought us a Foreman grill for Christmas.
I've wanted one for a while now and even registered for something similar but we never got around to buying it. I'm very excited to finally make a grilled burger! And then, since George advertises so many grilled fruits and veggies right on the side of the box, I'm going to use it as leverage against Tom to eat more vegetables. Wish me luck!
