I'm not a fan of cooking dinner. I like eating it but hate the idea of planning it and then having to cook it. This is not the greatest of traits for a stay-at-home mom. Today I did force myself to plan and cook a nice homecooked meal. The kids however, will not be here to eat it. They are eating at friends. That always seems to happen. Why bother? I guess the positive side would be that my husband and I will eat a nice meal in peace...provided he gets home before the kids do. For now, I'll enjoy the quiet and a cool evening on the porch.
