It’s dinner itself.

Or more specifically: what type of meal I’ve planned. I’ve learned that if I intend to make a hands-on, prep-intensive (i.e. more than twenty minutes of me actively cooking in the kitchen) meal, I’d darn well better be okay with the kids watching a movie before dinner while I do so.

Side note: If you haven’t signed up for our free meal planning challenge yet, you can jump in anytime. It includes weekly emails, a Facebook group, and the kick in the pants you know you need.

My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
