Getting Back into the Swing of Things

The Jetplanes are settling down as much as we can. Yesterday, Mr. Jetplane calls me to tell me that he is going to make dinner. To that I ask... "Well what are you planning to make? We have no food in our house right now."

Mr.: "I know. I'm not sure. What do we have?"
Me: "I think we have a box of chicken nuggets, lots of frozen veggies, rice, mac and cheese, soup. But I had soup and a sandwich for lunch, so I don't want them."
Mr: sulking.... since he is all Mr. Healthy eater... "UGH... I had soup and a sandwich too...whatever..."
Me: "Well you could go to the store?"
Mr.: "I'll make what we have..."

Fast forward to my drive home from work...
Mr "Where are you? Dinner will be ready in 43 seconds."
Me "I'm driving home, I'll be home in about 5-10 minutes. What did you make?"
Mr "What you told me to make... by the way we each only get 3 chicken nuggets..."

I arrived home to a lovely meal of 3 chicken nuggets, Velveeta shells and cheese (2%), and broccoli. We drank lovely sugar free Strawberry Crystal Light.

Someone needs to go to the store... I have a feeling it will be me.

Mr. Jetplane is nicer than Mr. Marine. He would have said, "Carrie, you are smaller than me. So you get 2 nuggets and I get 4."

Be thankful!

Oh, this makes me happy because I can totally see the exact conversation between me and my man a year from now when we get married.

Looks like you'll have to start copying my Menu Mondays.

Our house is like that right now, because this week is beyond busy.
