When my kids were young and I was working a 9-5 job I did not mind the planning of a home cooked meal. Later when they were active in school and had lots of after school activities I did not mind the challenge of setting up dinner before I went to work. When they were in high school I decided to go back to school for education and continue my full time job. I rarely complained about getting dinner on the table. These past two years in my teaching career have been very demanding and I am taking grad classes again. Making dinner has become a chore. I have been cranky at times about it. In fact making statements to my husband about how nice it must be to come home from work and have dinner made and served on the table.
All that has changed since last week. My birthday present from my daughter is 30 days of dinners prepared and served! I am jumping for joy!
