Is exactly how I've been spending most of my time. This whole getting ready to go out of town for an extended period of time and leave meals for the two men left behind, plus pack enough food for a three day road trip for the other ten of us without having to stop for fast food, plus make our regular meals, well, frankly it's wearing me out a bit...even with all the help I get. I can honestly say that I am getting sick and tired of cooking.
And it's sort of a mess and overtakes our small kitchen/dining area.
He's helping wash dishes. I never, ever, ever turn down help...even when it's not really helpful. Because, why? Why would I say no now and then expect it later when he is old enough? That makes no sense to me and deprives him of pridefully contributing.
The freezer is getting full and I'm almost done. Indian curry chicken is the last flipping freezer meal I have to make. After that I'll be on easy street just keeping up with daily meals and getting road trip food ready.
We are planning on leaving the mountaintop on Tuesday...and there is plenty of excitement in the air. The kids can't wait to get going and get to sunshine at Papa's house, and I'm looking forward to the three day drive...mostly because I can't cook in the van...lol.
