How did everyone fare today? Did Daylight Saving throw your family for a loop or was it smooth sailing?

My body betrayed me this morning, and I found myself wide awake at 5:30. I eventually gave up on the idea of going back to sleep.... and I got out of bed to make coffee at 6:30. 

I was hoping to spend that "extra hour" in a quiet house, sipping coffee and reading. But no such luck. The kids followed me downstairs and the morning sort of spiraled from there. 

I was so frustrated that I couldn't start the day the way I wanted that I had a bit of an emotional breakdown. Thankfully, I was able to recover and had a relatively productive day after that.

To end the day on a high, here's this week's menu plan. If you're curious to see what's on deck for dinner at our house this week, then keep reading!
