So, Rett comes home from Montana on Tuesday night so there won't be too much cooking this week either. I actually have dinner plans on Wednesday and Thursday so I'm making Rett's favorite, lasagna, for he and the boys to eat the rest of the week. I usually use this recipe which is REALLY good but I decided to branch out this time and go with this one. Luckily, none of them are picky. I have only found 2 good ways to use ground deer meat - spaghetti and lasagna. It is just too lean for anything else and deer season is almost here and I still have a freezer 1/2 full of last year's meat.
Speaking of the deer lease Rett is actually taking Jake at least once this year. This was totally his decision. I pushed him to take Jake when he was 2 and that was a totally disaster so I haven't brought it up since. Get excited. I have been waiting for this day for 4 years. I have put my time in watching the boys at home while he goes knowing one day they would go with him and I would have a few days by myself. Well, one boy down, one more to go. I always knew I was an introvert but since I have kids that talk it is magnified. I could seriously go 2 days just going out and about in silence. So, if you see me around town and I'm zombie like don't worry. I'm in my happy place.
Also, I took Jake shopping for some jeans and dress shirts a few days ago. I have to take him now because I can't figure out how boys sizes work. Yes, he is 4 and wears size 6/7ish but sometimes is a small and sometimes medium. He is like a 2 in shoes. He picked out this shirt because he said the tie would make him look 'handsome.' This morning he came into my room all dressed for church asking if he looked handsome. Looks good to me....especially if I don't have to dress you :).
