Happy Monday! If you’re in a part of the United States that received snow and ice over the weekend, I hope you’ve managed to dig out. Helena was one of those winter storms that mercifully skipped over upstate New York. (Since we’ve already received a good amount of snow this season, I was happy to take a pass on this one.)
I’m not doing a meal plan this week. No, I haven’t already given up on my goals for 2017. It’s been a challenging few days for my family, and our upcoming week is somewhat unpredictable.
My husband’s grandmother passed away late last week. We knew her passing was coming, and were able to see her for a final time at Christmas. But – as anyone who’s lost someone close to them knows – no matter how much notice you have, it’s always difficult to say goodbye to a loved one.
On top of that, my husband came down with strep throat on Friday. He’s been quite sick – feverish, tired, and has a terrible sore throat with cough – for the past few days. He started on an antibiotic on Saturday, and we’re hoping he’ll be back to normal shortly. (Please cross your fingers that our daughter and I avoid catching it.) Needless to say, we spent the weekend hunkered down at home.
The Week Ahead
We traveled to New Jersey yesterday for my husband’s grandmother’s wake and funeral. Depending on how late the funeral and family luncheon runs on Tuesday, we’ll either head home on Tuesday or Wednesday morning. If time permits, I’d like to get to the grocery store, since I’ll be going back to work on Thursday. (I’ve been off since early November!) Otherwise, I’ll go on Friday. To get us through then, we’ll probably be eating out of the freezer and pantry, and there may be a pizza in the cards.
What’s for dinner at your house this week?
