I don't know how others do it. I really don't. Today we got home at 5:30 and the last thing I wanted to do was cook dinner. But the hamburger HAD to be cooked and I had promised my husband that I would make a meatloaf, so I started in as soon as I got my coat off. Meatloaf is pretty easy. I don't mind making it. My husband chopped the onion and cut up the parsley, while I did everything else. Once I got the meatloaf in the oven, I started on the scallop potatoes. Thankfully, my husband washed up yesterday's dishes while dinner cooked and I hunted for the installation disk to the printer I had given a colleague.
Dinner was a little late, but a success. After cleaning up the kitchen and putting away left overs, it was nearly 8pm. I still needed to write my slice of life and do some lesson prep for tomorrow. Really, I don't know how people who have children or second jobs do it. God bless you!
