In my intentional time post I talked a little about muffin Monday, not that it needs much explanation…we make muffins on Monday! The first Monday (September 28) started a little rough. I knew I wouldn’t be in the mindset to try out a crazy recipe so we started with the pouch kind. You know the one for $1, just add milk. Except we didn’t have any milk. And what does a mom trying to hold it all together and make the perfect start to a deployment do? She cries of course, says a cuss word or two under her breath, but then she remembers she has a village and she reaches out like she promised she would if she needed anything! My neighbor saved the day with a little carton of milk.
The best part of this muffin Monday was that Jason happened to receive a muffin in his DFAC delivery meal in Korea (quarantine), it was so fun to show the kids how we’re still connecting even across the world.
