Now...you understand the title, right? Comfort foods. Lucky Charms (hidden in the corner of the pantry so my daughters don't find it) and Chocolate Cheesecake...both are delish any time of day. Though it seems that cheese cake would be perfect for breakfast & Lucky Charms will work wonders around midnight.
|Sign at Manas AFB where |
my husband is stationed.
So here's how I plan to make the time go by more quickly & cut corners...and it doesn't just involve food...
-Paper plates for pretty much everything
-Paper bowls for things that will drip off of paper plates
|It's VERY cold & snowy in|
Kyrgyzstan right now.
-Let my youngest eat in a onsie instead of real clothes. You should see her eat & you'd understand. It'll cut my laundry by 1/3.
-Put 1/2 the toys in the garage (to rotate back in at a later date)...decreased pick-up toy time DRAMATICALLY.
-Accept (almost) all dinner invites...you know, a girl's still got a schedule to keep, so it's impossible to keep ALL invites.
-Eat out more. 'Nuf said.
-INCREASED PRAYER...surely that, out of this entire list, will make this time more bearable till the Hubster comes home...
This month, as much as possible, I am planning to focus on all things military in honor of my amazing husband The Major and to all the other men & women out there & their families who are serving bravely. I hope you enjoy the contributing posts by other writers. ;-)
Your Turn: How do you cut corners or make the time pass quicker when you need to? I'd love to hear our ideas.
