Mid-Week Links: The Come-on-in-and-Sit-a-Spell Edition

It is Hump Day, y’all! Does anyone still call it that?

I am in a horrible slump when it comes to meal planning. Can I be honest and tell you that I really do not enjoy cooking? The thing is – I live among a people intent on eating. Anyone else? So, last week, I tried something new. I thought I would make meals that started with the same letter as the day of the week. Taco Tuesday. Sloppy Joe Saturday. Hump Day Ham. Today, however, we are probably having chicken. Yeah, Hump Day chicken – hmm.

The meal name game lasted about a week because I’m consistent like that.  My best friend, Robin, is totally nodding her head in agreement right now. She knows that I change my mind more often than I change my clothes. That is not an exaggeration either because I have not gotten out of my pajamas in two days. Don’t judge me.

Also, my oldest daughter leaves tomorrow for her very first church camp. She has never been away from home except for the occasional sleepover at grandma’s house. She is going to be fine, but I need someone to hold me. I’m a mess.

I hope you have a fabulous day, my friends!

  1. Loved your post! :-)
    We don’t have crib rails, but I was cleaning the bookshelf and noticed the board books that all of my kids are now too old for. Some that I’ve had for all 6 of them. I can’t bring myself to get rid of them. I just can’t.

    • I completely understand! We have one sad old baby doll affectionately named “Orange Baby” by my oldest years ago – because he is orange. We’re a creative people. Now I see my littlest carrying that thing around and I know that baby will be in my house until I die. I couldn’t bear to part with it.

  2. Hah, I live with people intent on eating as well. Life would be so much easier if they didn’t need to eat! I like your letter of the week idea. We do a theme for each day of the week, and that seems to work for us (Mexican, Italian, Asian, Chicken, Soup/Sandwich/or Salad, etc.). I am sure your daughter will have a great time at camp, but I know I will need some support when it is time for my oldest to go!
