Yes, it's true- today I caught up on some housework including laundry and what did I find in the washer? One of James' practice teeth for his dentoform (not sure what that is? click here.) Weird, I know, but that is our life!
Anyway, today was housework day. After a whirlwind trip to SC this past weekend for the now Mrs. Brooke Cagle(yay!), I still hadn't gotten anything done around the house- the plight of the working. Of course today my plan was to lay around in my pjs and watch old episodes of something meaningless because I have been so tired this week, but what can I say but that I am my mother's daughter! If there is something that needs to be done, I can't help but be productive. James says I can't even sit still when NOTHING needs to be done:). So I spent almost no time in my pjs and got right to work after James left. I also had coffee with girlfriends, ate lunch with James, went grocery shopping with Shannon (where I saved 67%!!! YES!) and made chocolate chip cookies. However, I did not have to make dinner because we ate leftover taco salad from yesterday! YUM! ....and after I finish blogging, I am going to go make meatballs for tomorrow's dinner so that when i come home from work, i can just put on the pasta and heat the sauce and VOILA- dinner! Sometimes productivity feels good.
I made my dinner plan for next week today (since Thursday is grocery day!)- i like to do this so i don't go the grocery and spend extra money since we are only trying to spend $20/week on everything (including household goods and toiletries)....want to know what we'll be eating?
Monday- pork loin (in the slow cooker), mashed potatoes, green beans
Tuesday- hearty bean and veggie soup, muffins
Wednesday- tuna patties, rice, pears, some veggie from freezer
Thursday- spaghetti and meatballs, salad
Friday- probably OUT because Jen and Joey are visiting! YAY!
Well, back to being productive....until next time!
