I am all about going into each day as prepared as possible. But, sometimes things just don’t go as planned. When life becomes overwhelming it’s time to quickly figure out how to delegate.

I Was Totally Prepared
Yesterday, I followed through on my preparedness. I had written out both the recipe I wanted to make and my grocery list for the week. (I’ll be honest, I like to shop on Friday evenings because that’s when my local grocery store does free wine tasting!)
Sometimes, Scheduling is Out of Our Control
I went to work yesterday morning feeling on top of world after having over-slept but still utilizing my morning to the fullest.
Then, things got a little crazy.
We were slammed at work all day and I even wound up staying a little late.
Figure Out How to Delegate, If Needed
Luckily, Hubs has Fridays off from work! So, I sent him my grocery list and let him know where he could find my dinner recipe, and he made our yummy dinner last night.
What a guy!!
We both loved this soup, it’s definitely a keeper. This one was even easy to convert to a gluten-free option which is an added bonus.
I can’t control everything, but I can control my response when things don’t go as expected.
In this case, I knew exactly what needed to be done, and the supplies I needed to make it happen. I quickly realized I needed to learn how to delegate, and Hubs was all for it.
Plus, we wound up with a pretty awesome dinner out of the deal! (Scroll down for recipe)
