Take it easy on me

Don't you just love it when your kids make your life a little easier?

Monday afternoon Hubs started to feel under the weather. He was running a fever and had chills. So I told him not to worry about cooking dinner, I would do it when I got home. He was going to make pork fried rice and egg rolls, Yummy.

So at 4:30 I went to pick up R8 from basketball camp, then stopped to get gas, then ran 20 minutes in the other direction to pick up R3 at day care and then 10 minutes to get home. Whew!

By the time I got home it was an hour later. On the way home R8 said he didn't want fried rice for dinner but he wanted grilled cheese.

Oh I could have pulled the car over and hugged his neck! I was thrilled I would not have to go through the lengthy process of making pork fried rice and egg rolls.

So we got home and I made grilled cheese and served them with BBQ chips and a pickle spear. Along with a brownie for dessert.

I know it wasn't the most healthy dinner but at least it was not a trip to one of our local fast food chains.

Thanks R8 for making my night a little easier. Mama loves you.
