EASTER....do you HEAR me....wasn't it just Christmas??? I am truly dumbfounded by the way time changes with your age and I can't be the only one, can I? Do you find that your days fly by without your knowing what happened to them? Heck, it's a good thing I keep this blog or I would think that I slept through the past 2 months.
Seriously, I will be happy to have Mom back home and to get back to our normal routine. Part of me feels kinda lost when she isn't here and it makes me worry about what I will do with my life when she is no longer here depending on me and needing me. Kind of like the empty nest syndrome. When that hit, I started taking in Exchange Students to fill the void. Don't worry, Frank, I am NOT going to start taking in old people to care for LOL.
So this is how my last full week without Mom looks....
Tomorrow I am catering an afterglow party for about 200 people at our church. We are having an organ concert and the afterglow will be immediately following. Just finger foods and wine but I always worry, when it is a group this size, that I am going to run out of food. Today will be spent shopping, prepping and planning. I made a Crockpot Whole Baked Chicken that I found on MPM Wednesday so I will use some of that for dinner tonight.
Tomorrow we will go out after the party if we are still hungry or head home for leftovers.
Ash Wednesday is a day of fasting for us so a very light and simple meatless dinner is served.
The rest of the week is pretty quiet so it should be peaceful and relaxing. Here is what the menu will be for each day.
Frank's Famous Margaritas
Guacamole and Chips
Southwest Chicken Burritos
Dinner out or Leftovers
Butternut Squash Manicotti (from freezer)
