Since we've met, one or both of us have been in college. We like being students, the Husband and me.
Right now, he's working towards his doctorate. This is something that I admire him for very much. The word dissertation gives me hives. He takes it in stride, seemingly fearless about comps, dissertations, and the time that stretches ahead.
This semester he's gone Tuesdays and Thursdays until almost 8:00.
This leads to a more...ahem...casual dining experience a couple of times a week.
Tonight the little man and I are eating popcorn and peanuts. We had cinnamon toast earlier, when we got home from school. B is at a play date until after supper. When she's home I sometimes get a little fancier still and we eat cheesy scrambled eggs with our toast. There's usually fruit for dessert and we are satisfied.
It seems old fashioned of me, only feeling the need to cook a "real" dinner when the Hubs is home. It is what it is.
We miss him, but eating like we are in college too is kind of fun. I think on Thursday we might eat cheese melted on tortillas. Another no-cook supper favorite!
