Life, Meal Plans, and Other Stuff

It has been a rather crazy month around here. A couple of boys earned their black belts, Alan has been traveling for work, one kid broke his arm, another kid is starting to pull himself up and try to walk a bit but thinks crawling is for the birds. One boy turned 16, another turns 18 later this week. Some idiots at Alan's second job decided it would be a good idea to tow his car while he was out of town. Because apparently male stupidity does not stop when you turn 18. The boys have been camping, Alan ran a half marathon. My Grandmother passed away. We are trying to finish up the math and English books so we can go to a slower summer school schedule. For some kids this is easier said than done. I've done the best I can to keep things running normally but some days I'm wondering what the word normal means.

I'm feeling rather burned out on the meal planning thing lately but it is a necessary evil. The freezers are currently filled with pork and almost nothing else. I wasn't expecting our pork delivery for another week. The beef arrives in another 10 days or so I think. You'd think this would be easier now that there is actual food to work with but alas, it is not at the moment.
