Our Monthly Dinner Plan (March)

In an attempt to make my life a little easier, I'm planning all of our dinners for March at once and sharing our monthly dinner plan here.

Here I am again.

It's the beginning of a new month, and I'm already feeling overwhelmed. Several big things are happening at work over the next several weeks, so my days have been (and will be) going non-stop. To feel somewhat balanced, I've been pouring my off-hours energy into the kids... especially on the weekends. It's no surprise that, in the middle of everything, I caught a stomach bug and was out for the count earlier this week.

This certainly isn't the way I wanted to kick off March. But... I finished our monthly dinner plan, so at least I have that going for me, right?
