Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
~ B.F. Skinner
So this is the start of the last week of school for the monsters. Overall, it's been a good year, but each has had their personal highs and lows. We'll see how much of their education survives this summer.
And with the start of the summer, there are changes to our lives. The boys will begin their summer living arrangements on the 8th. That means that they live with their dad from Sunday evening until Friday afternoon. This was the compromise that we came up with when we got divorced. This keeps the boys from jumping from house to house during the school week, but causes a lot of loneliness on my part. Oh, I can't deny that the first week or so, I'm excited that I don't have to cook for two endless pits, that I don't have to harp about chores or homework, but by Week 3, I'm ready for them to come back home where they belong.
This being the last week of school, also means the end to huge planned meals. Cooking for one isn't always fun, but I'll be attempting it.
This week's menu is as follows:
Monday ~ Scouts for Mr. A
Alfredo Bake We didn't get to this last week, so it's on the menu again.
Tuesday ~ Baseball Night
Monster's Mexican Meatloaf
Wednesday ~ Baseball Night
It's lasagna tonight...I'll post the link when it gets posted.
Thursday ~ Baseball Night
YOYO - You're on your own!
Friday, Saturday & Sunday ~ First Summer Weekend
My plans are to go to my parents' place and give the monsters their birthday present...yes, I know that their birthdays are two and three months away, but I think that this gift is worth giving to them early. So with going to my parents' place, that means I don't have to cook! WhooHoo!
So that's what's up for this week. Stop by this week's MPM to see what others are planning. Who knows? You might get some good ideas for yourself!
