It is funny how sometimes the answers that I look for are right in front of me that I sometimes I just don't see it. Sometimes the answers just randomly pop up like the Spaghetti cat:
This weekend Chris and I have been randomly realizing things that hopefully will make our family easier. Like why haven't we been keeping a budget this past year? Seriously it isn't that hard but it is important. Also why did I feel it necessary to book every possible activity for these 3 kids: summer camp, speech camp, swimming, music class, etc. ? So I'm backing off some of this and allowing more time for sprinklers and mud pies.
Finally Chris came up with something smart: I don't like cooking and I don't have time. Chris loves eating and he is a great baker. So starting later this week he is going to start helping prepare meals. I'm cautiously excited but I think it will be good. We split most household jobs and it works for us well. I told him on his night to cook he can't count Taco Bell as cooking ;)
So yes this has been a time for random revelations but hopefully they will lead to a happier home in the long run!
