Just easy meals for busy days

I apologize in advance to my blogging friends for this rant....

It's been a few stressful days for me. We are trying to decide "when" or "if" we are moving. I'm pretty sure we are going to. I should clear things up when I said before that we found a house--I should've said to rent, not to buy. Neither one of us are ready to lay down ties in this area just yet, so we are just renting for now. That leads me to say that I cannot believe how rude some people can be once they find out you are "renters". To some, they consider us the scum of the Earth. Unbelievable! We are living in this state - not by choice - but because my husband was laid off from his job working for a major airline. We moved here so that he could take another job and provide for our family. We left behind a house and all of our family and friends (except my true Internet friends!). But we trudged through and made it work. Our prayers were answered when he was called back to his other job BUT we weren't given the option to go home. Instead we moved to another area within this same state. With the economy the way it is today, we are so very thankful that he still has his job. He's been with this company for 19 yrs --but that doesn't mean a thing - we can be uprooted at any time. I'm not asking anyone to feel sorry for us. We chose this path and we are making it work for us and our family. I just ask that before you call us (insert demeaning adjectives here) renters, you find out the whole story. Or better yet....get to know us. You might just like these renters.

Moving on......

Dinners for the last week have been pretty simple so that's why I haven't taken pictures or bothered to blog about them.

A few dinners I've made:

cheeseburgers & pasta salad
chicken noodle soup
lasagna
turkey and noodles
spaghetti

I hope to get back to menu planning next week.

Really? I can't believe you've been getting that kind of flak! Unbelievably.

It's okay, we're dirty Philistine renters too, for now. Good luck with the move, dearie!

Sorry you're struggling now! I don't know why others have to make it harder for you. God bless!

That's rough, and for no good reason! I hope you find a wonderful place to rent, with terrific neighbors and not too much disruption for any of you.

That makes me cry. Taking care of your family is the number one priority. Sounds like you have that one in order. Hugs

PS Did you get the little package?
