To Do List(s)


A new week is here, along with a holiday weekend for those of us in the U.S.A.   I assume you’ve heard the saying, “The days have dragged, but the week has flown by.”  That was this last week for me.  Every day at work was hard, and I found myself in tears multiple times.  I kept thinking I couldn’t survive another hour, and then suddenly, BOOM!  It’s the weekend.  I had planned on getting caught up on things around […]

Howdy!   Another new week, more changes coming. I started my new job last week.  I’ve been in training, and I’m realizing that it is going to be more physically demanding than what I’m used to.  I’m pretty excited about that, though, because it’ll help keep me in shape!   My daughter is starting school THIS week.  It’s her first year of junior high, so it’s a big and exciting thing for her.  I hope we’ve got everything ready!  Guess […]

Oi, what a week.   My son and daughter both had spring break, so I had some fun plans.  When the kids are out of school, I’m off work, and I was going to get SO MUCH STUFF DONE!   Ha ha ha ha….and then life happened.   I was rear ended in my little Kia by a big SUV.  It pushed me into the big truck in front of me.  The two vehicles I was sandwiched between didn’t get […]

New week, new month!  Holy cow, did fall suddenly hit you like it hit over here?  We went trick or treating on Friday evening and didn’t even need jackets.  By the next morning, November 1, it was freezing!  I kinda get a kick out of it when the weather acts so on schedule.   I hope you all had a happy and safe holiday weekend.  Now that it’s over, it’s time to get back to the schedule.  Here is our […]

So, I skipped a couple of weeks of menu planning.  Not very organized, but hey, I’m keeping it real.   I gotta be honest with everyone.   I’m LOSING MY MIND. I can’t keep up with anything, and I’m getting more and more stressed out. This whole 65 miles every day JUST to get my son to and from school is rough.  It’s what you do when you have a special needs child, though.   And you want to know […]

I’m recovering from a rotten weekend.  And prepping for a crazy week.  Not the best combination…my poor family!   We racked up $825 in unexpected car repair costs this weekend.  And I had a negative reaction to chocolate (it was the food I was allowed to add back in this last week).  And I had to rip out a section of carpet from my room, and cannot afford to replace it.  But then yesterday I woke up to the news […]

Another week, another menu.  I’m doing my best to eat out of the pantry this month, as I’m trying to take advantage of the case lot sales and food storage deals available during the month of September.  The menu this week will be based on that.   Breakfasts: Freezer waffles (I’m SO glad I made a big batch of these!) Cereal Steel Cut Oatmeal with Apples Fresh Fruit   Lunches (always served with one or more of the items below): […]

Hello, hello!   This last week was a good one.  I am officially allowed to workout again, as long as I don’t push too hard!  Yay!  I can feel an improvement and boost in energy, and I can tell my treatment plan is working.  I also had the chance to review a cute kids’ movie and am hosting a giveaway for a copy of the DVD.  Yes, a good week!   Holy cow, it’s the last week of summer break.  […]
