How long do you suppose a family can survive on frozen pizza, Ritz crackers and craisins?
You know it's been bad when someone is shocked to find the clothing item they need in their closet, as opposed to praying it's in the dryer load and will be dry on time to get dressed. (Dry clothes are so much more comfortable.) Or when the poor nine week old begins to cry just by being in the vicinity of the car seat. Or when the older kids leave in the morning for an activity and have to pack all three meals to bring with them and changes of clothes for the other activities in their day because they won't be home till late.
Due to popular demand, family life will be returning soon to a home near you.
