I keep thinking life will slow down. But it just DOESN’T. I mistakenly thought as my kids grew up things would calm down. Ha! Anyone who has raised older kids is laughing at that sentence. Am I right? Things move in warp speed and it’s hard to keep up. Our eating habits have gone downhill as we try to manage it all. But I really want to change that. I’ve been researching more and more about how to get on top of things. The only answers I have are make ahead meals, freezer meals and crockpots. Check out the posts that I have found most helpful in my freezer meal hunt:
