It’s a new school year and- glory- for the first time in 10 years I will have all four kiddos in school for at least a portion of the week. Numero cuatro will start preschool next week, three mornings a week.
Friends, it is time.
Picture me as Princess Jasmine, marveling over a Whole New World as it unfolds before me.
With the new school year comes new systems! New organization ideas! Ways to streamline school lunches! Less screen time! Things are going to be different this time!
I give it until maybe October, when the wheels fall off. But it will be a well-oiled machine until then.
I am trying this meal system for a month to see how it goes. I hit a wall this summer…or maybe as far back as this spring…where I officially hate to plan, shop, and make meals. I’m over it. (This system petered out once these particular meals stopped being appetizing…). And yet people still need to be fed around here. (Sigh.) Trying this system reduces decision fatigue, which I appreciate. Our grocery spending has also exploded so I am curious if this will help cut costs.
(As a blogger I read once stated, you can’t ruin something you hate. She meant it in home decor, but I let that apply to all things food. I hate the whole thing of it, so changing it up (to try something new) is a low-risk endeavor.)
*Siblings holding hands. Heart eyes.*
That’s what’s happening here. All sorts of wild and crazy.
