I just went grocery shopping.

I have nothing to make for dinner!

Is it just me or does this happen to everyone else?

I go to the store, list in hand, plan in mind... and then I come home.  All of those things that looked so promising at the store now look very dysfunctional on my shelves.

Don't get me wrong, we've got a whole boat load of food in the pantry.  I just can't bring myself to want to eat any of it.  Nothing.  Zip

The only thing that sounds reasonable is take-out.

I'm not willing to admit defeat and order anything. 

I stare....

I pace...

I probe...

Nothing is changing here except the clock and the crazed looks on my hungry children's faces.

Perhaps cereal isn't that bad of an option.

I'm better than that!  I know I can make something for dinner.

I have a meal plan-- I really do.  I think maybe someone else made it because none of it is speaking to me.

Dinner.  Could you just make yourself just once... please?

Hmmm.... maybe I should go to the store.

when I can't figure out what to make for dinner...we have pancakes. Kids are happy everytime.

If I weren't married to someone who needs a good meal I think I'd have cereal for every meal, or pancakes like Juli.
