As a full time working mom of two, I often find myself questioning “What am I going to make for dinner tonight?”… at 5pm! No matter how many times I have told myself, “I am going to plan out our meals this week,” I rarely follow through. It’s not for the lack of trying or caring… It’s just one of those things that sometimes gets pushed to the back burner as there are so many things to do and keep track of.
Just like many other moms out there… we just wish that there was more time in the day. More time in the day to get work done, to spend with the kids, to clean and do laundry, maybe run errands, not to mention maybe 5 or 10 minutes to ourselves to relax? A girl can dream, right?
So what am I going to do about it? How can I plan better? How can I make it so that I am not still trying to figure out what’s in my refrigerator or freezer when I get home with the kids at 6pm? Oh, and don’t forget that time needed for homework!!! I know that I am not the ONLY Mom out there that thinks like this, am I???
This year, we, as family members in the business, are going to be blogging for the Bishop’s Blog on our website. Each week we will each take a turn to start, holding each other accountable for writing about something that will hopefully catch the attention of our customers and readers. You may not be able to relate to all of us, but hopefully at least one of us does!
Keith and Jonathan Bishop are Co-CEO’s and Cousins. They are 5th generation Bishop’s. They have been around for a while and will most likely write on more topics that relate to the Farm, the history, the change in times… or something completely different. Then there is the 6th Generation. That is where my sister Carrie and I come in. We are both Full time working moms, I have two elementary aged children, and Carrie has a toddler. We both volunteer our time with different organizations in town and on the Shoreline and are trying to juggle many balls in the air, as so many women our age do. With that said, you will most likely get very different topics from us and we will most likely hit a different demographic for readers.
So why do I mention this? This blog is to hold us accountable! This means that I have no excuse not to plan what I am going to write about or hopefully make for dinner. I want to share these ideas with all of you, so that you too might find some tips and good ideas on how to make your life a little easier (maybe?)! We can do this together!
I will be posting easy meal ideas, ideas for kids lunches, new products in our market that you will want to give a try, events here or in and around the shoreline, and that’s just the short list. I will try my best to keep you engaged and wanting more! I encourage your feedback and questions. You can always leave your comments in the comments field below, or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to connecting with you!
