This week has been such an easy week for me, daycare-wise. 4 of my daycare kids have been sick, so I've really only had one of my girls all week. That's been such a nice break, as we have gone out ALOT this week! But, the last 2 days, I am SOOOOOO freakin tired, and I sleep well at night too. I have not been this tired since being a few months preggo. And I feel bad for everyone else, because I'm grumpy, and our meals have been horrendous, very quick, easy-to-prepare foods, and prepackaged stuff. I think that is what bothers me the most, I used to be homemade everything, and now I just don't care, ugh!: And I don't do as much with the kids like I normally do, I usually have a preschool curriculum prepared in advance, but the last few months I haven't done as much. I feel like the worst daycare mom ever. Rant over.

mama! I used to be jokingly referred to as "Martha" by my friends because I was always making stuff and now we're doing the take-out, packaged, and plain old weird meals. I eat the weirdest things not because of cravings but because I'm too lazy to actually make myself a decent meal. You're in the last stretch, have 2 dd's and do daycare? To me, just being awake, on your feet, and spending anytime with them sounds like you're doing a good job!

Me too. It's embarrassing. I need to go grocery shopping really badly but I HATE grocery shopping.

So the kids and I are eating carrots right now. I'm hoping I can talk dh into eating out for dinner. :

I was just now staring blankly into thr fridge trying to figure out what to make for dinner. Still no clue-so I gave up. lately all I want to eat is yogurt,melon and popsicles. I don't think that will be enough for dinner though.

I think I should invest in Cederlane and Amy's (the food companies) b/c I am eating packaged food now for lunch... and LOVING IT! I have (almost) no guilt about it, either. Pop it into the microwave, and then even if I forget about it, the machine beeps to tell me it's done -- magic!

DH makes dinner -- I'm a lucky girl

But OMG, melon, yogurt and popsickles sound SO GOOD right now! (And I just ate, too! )

I just had a package of ramen noodles (uncooked) and a small bowl of ice cream.

Normally, I cook everything from scratch and have healthy snacks and stuff, but lately not so much.

That should make you all feel better!

Definitely makes me feel better! I go to the store, buy food, 6 hours later I'm scratching my head in confusion going "There's nothing to eat!".

:

I swear I have been spending more money on food and we have nothing to eat. We had take out last night and tonight: I have also been buying convenience foods from the grocery store. If it is bad now, what is it going to be like when I am sleep deprived and have a newborn.
