Make a delicious dinner with Instant Pot Chicken Fajitas!

Instant Pot Chicken Fajitas

The days are filled with work and school lately, and then after school is homework and activities.  So, when do we eat?  I’m not sure anymore!  I will admit, we scaled back a bit.  I just couldn’t do it. What does that mean?  Less activities!

Our son is about to start basketball season and was also thinking about doing karate, but we had to pull back on something so it ended up being karate.  On the one hand as a mom I feel bad, I want him to do everything he wants to do, but as far as family and home life go, we can’t do it all.  It is healthy for our family to be home a little bit during the week and not rushing from one thing to another, plus it isn’t good on the kids either.  I figured if I was feeling stressed and overwhelmed, surely they must be feeling that in some ways too.

He was a little sad at first but he did understand it, I think because he was feeling it too.  The constant running situation, the constant mom being so stressed that she can’t even hold a normal conversation anymore…he felt it.  I felt it.  We all felt it.

Something had to give… so there it is.

Now, we have a few evenings a week at home again and goodness it’s so refreshing to just be able to do things together like go on evening walks.

In the midst of that, I’ve also started to use my instant pot and slow cooker on those busier nights regularly so that I’m not adding anymore stress to myself.
