If I were a single mom, I’d be one of two things:
Extremely thin or Incredibly Fat.
Because when Nathan is gone, I refuse to cook. Cooking for one is annoying (and Lije doesn’t quite count yet, because he doesn’t eat as much as an adult.) So we either very rarely “pick something up,” or I just don’t eat. I always get something together for Lije, but I just will not take the time to cook for myself. It’s a waste of time and a clean kitchen.
Thus, if I were single, I’d be huge from fast food, or too thin from laziness.
So, tonight is monumental for many reasons. My hubs coached his last game of the season tonight. Woo to the Hoo! I am thrilled! We will have afternoons back, we will have evenings back, we will have weekends back, and we will have family mealtimes back.
It’s a beautiful thing!
I am so proud of Nathan. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. He is an excellent coach. He says “Jump!” and his players literally ask, “How high?” They love him- and there’s no question why. He loves them. I know that he is already planning next season, and that the sketching of plays and options won’t actually stop. I am just thrilled that he can now do those things on the couch at home, and not in a gym an hour away.
I am so thankful for my husband- so thankful for the passion he has for his job- so thankful to have him home more for a while- so thankful for a chance to have some nice family meals.
What do you cook/eat when it’s just you? Give me some ideas for next season 🙂
