DH’s tenure packet is due in March. Also this month the school is going to try to have a budget for next year and become solvent for this year. DH has somehow ended up taking over the financial committee for the school, and the administration are all terrified of numbers. It’s an uphill battle, but he’s determined.
So my February challenge is to help him out by giving him the gift of time. I pondered how best to do that and decided I would like to take care of dinner (even if taking care of dinner is just telling him where to pick up take-out on the way back from picking up DC) every night this month. With the pregnancy and the m/s, food duties had pretty much shifted over to him and that needs to eventually change back to something more equal. Maybe a month off will spur in the direction towards equality.
Tonight I plan to make Cantonese Fish Stew. Tomorrow… I got nuthin, but hopefully will come up with something. We do have beef stew in the freezer that can be defrosted. Really all I want to eat is ice cream.
Wish me luck! How do you handle dinner preparation?
