Menu Plan Monday back again
I inadvertently took a short break from blogger-ville. I was still around reading, just not posting anything. I was so busy, it was nice to have hubby home. We are always doing something when he's not at work. And the boys and I are spoiled when Daddy is home all day long!
I had crazy thoughts that the 6 weeks he had been gone would give them cause to stay here most of the summer. Not so. Which makes things here a litte harder. The next time out is this Friday for 2 weeks. Thankfully I am heading to Cali. for one of my friends weddings, so hubby will stay behind and with the boys. But then they are out again for almost all of July. Where-in the problem lies. I was supposed to be induced at the end of July because that way hubby could definitely make sure he was there. Not only that, but my last guy got here so fast (less than 3 hours) that they are concerned I won't have time to make it in. Nice, right? Only now the ship will be out the 17th through Aug. 1st. I am due August 4th. And my MIL is coming the 22nd (my birthday) through August 5th so I don't have to be alone should anything happen. I am very grateful for that, although a little weirded out at sharing such an "intimate" moment with my MIL! Hubby was all, whats the big deal? Its not like she hasn't given birth to 3 boys, but in my defense, she is NOT my MOTHER!!! And from that point on I am sure everytime I saw her, thats all I would be able to think about.
So I asked Hubby, if when he goes for a Vasectomy, if he wanted my Dad to come along for support, its not anythng he hasn't seen before, right? POINT TAKEN!!
Of course, he is going to try and get leave for that time, but we don't know how likely that will be. We are DEFINITELY praying about that one.
My Dad's surgery on his leg is today. The one to remove most of his Femur bone, replace it and all that. The bad thing, is that this weekend, I want to say Friday night, he was in bed, and heard what he thought was thunder. My mom was in the kitchen getting ready for bed. It was actually fireworks, but my dad was concerned that if there was another storm coming, they needed to unplug the computer and what not because of what happened last time. He called for my mom, she didn't hear him, and when he started to put weight on his leg to stand, it broke. I feel so bad, morphine wouldn't even touch the pain. And my poor mom! They wouldn't do the surgery earlier, so my dad spent two VERY painful days in traction in the hospital. Afraid to fall asleep, because everytime he would start to relax enough to do so, his leg would get a muscle spasm in it and hurt. A LOT.
We are praying today for a smooth surgery, capable surgeons, no problems at all. Man, I hate being so far away.
Now, on to my Menu Plan for the week. Which will be crazy since I have another wedding this weekend.
Monday: Hubby has duty, easy night. Scrounge night!
Tuesday: Pizza bake, one we didn't get to last week
Wednesday: Slow Cooker Cheesy Dump and Go Chicken (another one we didn't get to)with brown rice
Friday: I have a Rehearsal to oversee, Daddy will feed the boys!
Saturday: probably order in something as I will be out all day for the wedding!
I just want today to go well for my dad, I am also praying that hubby's leave request will get signed off on by the last person, no problems. Its been approved by everyone else so far. Pray for hubby to have favor with the captain!
