Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you’re doing something special with the ones you love today. We’re staying inside and warm (it’s 5 degrees out with the windchill) and having a low-key day while we all heal up. A nasty cold has taken all five of us out, one by one, with all three kids having their asthma triggered and taking turns on the nebulizer. No fun!
It’s weeks like this where I appreciate having a menu plan system in place. At least for the first part of the week, when it was just one kid and me down for the count, there was food in the house and my husband and 2 healthy kids could keep up with making easy meals. By the end of the week, we were all miserable and desperate. It was pitiful. I’m looking forward to a healthier week ahead!
