the "love" side of my love/hate relationship with the internet and shirking my motherhood duties
It's no secret. There are many, many, many things I do not like about the internet. But like many entities, it also has a lot of positives. Case in point....It's 4:45. I haven't made it to the grocery store this week. In sixty short minutes, my family will expect me to feed them (again). After my third sweep of the pantry and refrigerator, I have come up with the following ingredients. Broccoli, one sad looking carrot, an over ripe honey dew, some chicken, and several types of left over cheese. Hmm...internet recipes to the rescue, and Chicken Broccoli casserole it is. And, I get to avoid the grocery shopping (seriously my most unfavorite mom job) for at least another day. And, let's be honest,since tomorrow is the start of the weekend, I'm hoping to avoid cooking altogether until Sunday night. My grandma used to tell me, "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach," and I'd like to add, "The way to a mom's heart is through take-out". Just saying.
