My creative outlet is...
decorating flat surfaces with the books I'm reading.
Aaaaaaanyway, he was taking two evening classes this last term (he is working on his master's degree) and so he was gone 4 nights a week for the last couple months. This meant I was responsible for feeding the children and myself for most of the week, quelle horreur!
Mr. Logo makes a planning menu and then shops from that so the fridge was stocked and ready for me to make all manner of delicious and nutritious meals, but somehow the allure of cold cereal, leftovers (on those rare occasions when they were available) and whatever else the kids could make themselves always outweighed my desire to cook one of the meals from the menu.
Yesterday I returned custody of two extra kids to a friend (their mother) after keeping watch over them for 10 days while their parents went to help build an orphanage in Haiti.
BTW, don't worry, they weren't smuggling orphans.
Sooo, before she left she was offering to make a menu with me, or go shopping for me, pretty much any and every thing she could think of to make sure I actually fed her kids while she was gone. I figured, FINE, I will cook! Sheesh...
So I did.
Now, they did end up with waffles one night, and chicken strips, mac & cheese and grapes on another, BUT I did actually make whole meals for like, seven of the last ten nights!
I'm exhausted now.
Make your own damn dinner!
