Menu Plan Monday

Back in the blogging saddle, means hopefully back to some organization. I make no promises. But we're trying. So Here's my menu plan for the week. Side items subject to change.

  • Monday -- Beef Stroganoff, Peas, and fruit. 
  • Tuesday -- BBQ Chicken, mac & Cheese, corn 
  • Wednesday -- Beef Stew, homemade bread 
  • Thursday -- Nachos
  •  Friday -- Chicken Nuggets & FF 
  • Saturday --Salisbury steaks, mashed taters, and green beans 
  • Sunday -- Soup and sandwiches

Depending on things like meetings, and Jay working late, these plans may be moved around.

School was cancelled today due to ice. After a week of temps in below the teens and even down to 9 Degrees, we finally got some precipitation.

The roads seem clear enough and Jay was able to get into work this morning, so I'm pretty sure that girlies will be returning to school tomorrow. Here's hoping at least.

But for the day, we are getting the house in order after break. The girls are breaking in their new Chore system.

The cats are lying around and the Dogs are both enjoying the back yard.

It's back to the laundry room for me.

Weekend Plans for us:

  •  I'm babysitting Ethan so we'll be stuck at home. 
  • Caity wants to finish the fleece blanket craft kit she got, so we'll probably all take a few squares to knot together.  
  • Bella wants to make some bracelets, so we'll pull out the rainbow loom and they'll all join in I'm sure. 
  • And Mommy is going to be baking!
I'll be reading, of course, when girlies are in bed and during nap time. Beyond that, who knows what the weekend will bring.

Welcome to 2014

HI everyone! I'm excited for a new year! Our 2013 was pretty good, but I am always hoping for better!
Here's what I'm looking forward to in 2014:

  •  NO Kidney follow-up in Boston!  That's right, we don't go back until 2015!!!
  • Caity hits double digits the BIG 1-0.  This makes me sad and happy all at the same time. 
  • Hopefully finishing the bedroom downstairs and thus having the girls in 3 rooms which maybe will contain the madness (Yes I realize I'm probably delusional)
  •  Possibly a trip or two.
  •  Lots of craftiness.

 Hope 2014 is as wonderful as I think it will be.

I didn't set any Resolutions, I rarely do because I'm horrible at keeping them.  So as usual, I just have my book goals on Goodreads and that's easy to stick to since I'm constantly reading something.


I forgot the one important thing.  Now that things have calmed down for us medically, I'm going to try to actually blog more.  So look for more of my crazy randomness.
