Best Uni Assignment Ever
Miss Sunshine was recently invited to accept an Early Entry into her target degree from the Associate Degree she began in February. After a flurry of early-semester withdrawals and re-enrollments she's now all settled into the big-girl version of University study and is well on her way to becoming a Prep-Year 10 teacher. This is the result of complete indecision on her part. Rather than choosing now, whether she wants to teach in Primary or Secondary, she's studying to be qualified in both. She can choose where she ends up later. I was never so uncertain. The younger the better!
To that end she is taking up Health as one of her Secondary methods and the timing of it all is just completely brilliant. Her semester-long assignment requires her to identify a habit that could be healthier and enacting a plan to change the habit for the better. She decided on eating healthier. So she has to plan our menu, help me shop (that's my two cents worth!) and then sort out who's doing what on which nights. I just show up at the supermarket with the money and she makes the rest of it all happen. She planned on fruit salad for some of her breakfasts, so I suggested she just make a huge container to keep in the fridge - everyone got to sneak a bit here and there through the week. She had also planned on a roasted vegetable salad for some of her lunches - again, she made more than enough so we shared that too.
You know what? I can't go ahead and plan or shop for this week till she's available. Am I sad about this? Nooooo. Someone else planning something for me? Yes please!
Now, if I could get her interested in sourcing some more healthy baking recipes Mr Busy would be all set and we could enjoy something sweet without adding to our winter insulation!!
