Monday Menu Plan: Week Beginning 20 February

After a whole four days of boredom bliss Semester 1 starts today.  In truth, I feel far less excited about it than I did this time last year.  I kind of feel like I did with my third pregnancy - I just wanted the baby... if only I could've had him without 9 months of discomfort.  If only I could have my degree without having to go through the process of turning in assignments and doing lots of boring reading.  Oh I know - it's all important learning.  It just feels like I'm on pause, waiting for the action that is to come.

The girls came home last night, tired but happy.  Their first church youth camp was apparently a success.  We spent the weekend wondering how they were doing.  And I realise their school camp (they go together this year) later this term, which is 6 nights/7 days, will be a very long camp indeed.  And if last night is anything to go by, resettling into home takes a little bit of time.  You need a bit of time to get your head from where you've been to where you are.  Mr Busy doesn't understand!

I've not shopped or planned our meals this week yet.  At this point we're having a roast chicken tonight and pasta tomorrow night.  Otherwise, your guess is as good as mine.  Perhaps I need to do this over breakfast, or the week will be painful.

So glad that the girls enjoyed their camp! I agree that it's always a transition from away to home. I come back from vacations filled with all sorts of plans, and then spend the first few days at home just sort of looking around without a thought in my head!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one. I feel like a horrible mother - but I need about an hour on my own in my house before I see my family, after I've been away.
