January 8, Quiet & Relaxing

January 9th, 2018 at 07:07 am

January 8
$10 Gymnastics
Dinner: Falafels

MH used his movie pass today. He's not used very much because he just hasn't had time. The movie was free. I asked him if he had any free screenings to go to. He said there was one this week, but we have plans every night pretty much. He usually goes to the advanced screenings a couple of times a week. So I wouldn't be surprised if he just started going to regular movies 2-3 weeks instead. But the advanced screenings are fun, and by far the better deal if the kids and I ever want to go too.

Work was so quiet and calm. It has been constantly crazed for the past month or so. I am used to more quiet days than crazy days, in general.

I got confirmation that insurance issue is squared away with mortgage holder. Phew! That was just the icing on the cake and it feels like a load had been lifted off my shoulders (between that and work settling down a bit). Don't get me wrong, it's a horrible deadline month and these new W2/1099 deadlines are entirely impossible. But I just feel like I can slow down and breathe this week. Panic can resume next week.

When I came home, MH was in a similar mood. He was thrilled he had time to go to the movies!

P.S. I've noticed in the past that MH's menu planning seemed to be more themed. Chicken one week. Lots of beef another week. Then a vegetarian week. I think it's subconscious. Anyway, I didn't notice that so much this time until now. Last 3 meals were non-meat?? (I made the sloppy joes, last minute, so was not part of the meal plan at all).

    Glad work was calm. Calm before the storm?

    Interesting about MH's meal planning and the themes.

    It was the calm AFTER the storm. Big Grin Or in between storms I guess, but for now I am optimistic that tax season won't be so bad as the last couple of months.

    I would guess he's planning his menus around the shopping he has done, and he's buying in bulk.

  4. MonkeyMama Says:

    @CB - no, we don't buy in bulk. (None of these vegetarian meals had any crossover). But the current week sales could be some of it. Mostly he asks for our input and it's just what we all feel like eating that week.

    Maybe it's just what he's in the mood for that week Smile
