    I hope your unpacking goes well. We unpacked our kitchen last when we moved, and I ended up throwing away half of our silverware on accident.

Memories…may yours reflect more patience than mine.

    No one but Jane will read this, so I feel comfortable telling you that I’ve given up control of my kitchen for 4 nights a week. My oldest cooks on 2 nights and the 5 year old cooks 2 nights. Heaven help us and our digestive systems! Our menu:
    Monday: scrambled eggs, sausage with carrots and broccoli.
    Tuesday: Taco Salad
    Wednesday: Veggie burgers, rice and broccoli (the 5 year old likes broccoli)
    Thursday: A Surprise. OHMYGOSH!
    Friday: I’m having Lasik, so I intend to eat ice cream to recoup. Who knows what the father of my children will feed them.
    Saturday: Hummus, pita, Sambusek and quail from a Mid-eastern restaurant.
    Sunday: dinner at a friend’s.
