So, this is my first blog of the week and its already Saturday. Can you believe it, but this week, I got a stomach bug Monday night –> Wednesday, and when we woke up on Tuesday morning we had no heating upstairs (where we all sleep). I hope this does not continue, so far this year:
- January: We had to buy a new car as my husbands car was too expensive to fix based on the trade in prices
- February: Son got Strep throat for 3 days (going around school), a on/off valve for our master bathroom snapped and water leaked downstairs through the kitchen ceiling…fixed/finished last week. Now I get a stomach bug (going around school and work) and the heating is broken – we get told that it would be a good idea to replace the heat pump and air conditioning unit since they are 16 years old (which apparently is a major accomplishment for these units). Right now we are going to push through to April and then replace that and get the roof re-done at the same time.
I am hoping for a smooth and non-eventful week to finish off February. I am also hoping for more co-operative weather – while we have not been getting the snow, it has been cold and a little miserable. The week has just been a little flat and I took some time out from doing anything but the essentials :-). I have been inspired this week though by Kristel’s list and Holly@myPlantBasedFamily (from her “Eat to live” post in November last year). Anyway, here is our meal plan for the week…..
|Saturday||Oatmeal with Banana and Almond butter||Creamy Vegetable Shepherd’s Pie (thanks to Kristel’s list and links)|
|Sunday||Oatmeal with Grated Apple + Sultana’s||Chicken and Vegetable Cacciatore + Quinoa or Wheat berries||3-4 Mile Walk|
|Monday||Whole Grain Cereal+Soy||Vegetable Frittata|
|Tuesday||Whole Grain Cereal+Soy||Vegetable Soup (Slow Cooked)||3-4 Mile Walk|
|Wednesday||Fruit + Flax Seed||Pizza @ zPizza (love the options at this place)|
|Thursday||Whole Grain Cereal + Soy||Asian Fish + Vegetable Pockets|
|Friday||Smoothie||Vegetable Pasta Bake + Quinoa Pasta||3-4 Mile Walk|
I hope that you feel better – and that the weather gives you a break.
Thanks – feeling much better 🙂
