Menu Plan Monday.. July 7-12, 2008 and we're home!

Here are some photos of the Lake Cottage in Minnesota. 
Looking up at the trees..
Than-the-man with his buddy, Josiah in the hammock.  Could be brothers?
Look at the cottage!

Grandma and the kids..

O.K. that was a little bit of the Minnesota fun,  spent with DH's family at the cottage.  Yes, I did transport 7 kids by myself.. (the kids brought 2 friends: Kara and Josiah in the center front)

We got home last week and made a quick turnaround to go up north to visit my family in the U.P. of Michigan.  

So, now that we're home, how to I manage to get cleaned up from 2 trips? not very easily.  
Let's just say that it is 1:00 p.m. and we're just cleaning up from breakfast, only have the second load of laundry in, and have just now managed to clear a path through the livingroom.  The suitcases and sleeping bags ARE put away, and I'm starting to get ready to think about dinner and shopping for groceries.  Whew! I think we were all just EXHAUSTED and only wanted to sleep.  

Menu Plan:

Today (Monday): Teriyaki turkey, rice, stir fried broccoli.
Tuesday: Taco salads
Wednesday: Spaghetti and meatballs, bread, salad
Thursday: grilled chicken, fresh veggies, pasta
Friday: soup from leftovers
Saturday: ham/ potatoes/ caesar salad
Sunday: bean or pea soup

for more great ideas: organizing junkie MPM.

Oooh, what's "Five Minute Artisan Bread?" It sounds like something mothers with very small children should know about...

On another note, I sure do know what you mean about recovering from trips. I still have stuff to put away from our last trip, and it was almost a week ago.
