5 things challenge


Happy Sunday!!  Each week I make a list of goals…things I want to accomplish above and beyond the every day stuff that I do.  I shoot for 5 things weekly.  Need some extra motivation?  Join me!   Last week feels like a blur to me…not sure why!  Maybe it’s me being tired right now, but I honestly can’t think of anything particular that my family did, ha ha!  Thank goodness I have the to-do list to refer to, eh?   […]

5 Things 5/27


Yikes…it’s one of those days that I don’t want to post the 5 Things, because I didn’t get a thing on my list done.  I blame it on the rain…cause I’m Milli Vanilli like that:   Finish making menu plans for April. – NO Rearrange food storage room– NO, but I started Go over the new budget– YES Walk to work every day. – NO…and this one I really am blaming on the rain. Plant another batch of spinach and […]

Wow…   My week was not productive, at least not in terms of accomplishing things on my list.   Do you wanna hear my excuses?  Do ya?   I’ll tell you anyway:   Monday I got an offer to transfer to my daughter’s school.  I work as a paraprofessional educator at another school in the district, but the commute has doubled my car gas usage, and so I was hoping to be able to transfer someday.  I certainly didn’t expect […]

Wow.  October flew by…or is it just me?  I seriously cannot believe that Thanksgiving (American) is coming up so soon, and that Christmas is less than SIXTY FREAKING DAYS AWAY.  Whaaaa????   Yeah, the time has flown by so quickly that I didn’t even think to post a 5 Things Challenge last week.  I am ashamed…forgive me, folks.   We’ll just check out the week before: Cook 2 more freezer meals.- Honestly, I can’t remember.  I think so! Go over […]

5 Things Challenge 10/30



So…how was your week?  Did you get a lot done?  I hope, for your sake, that you did better than I did…EEK!   I have no excuses, so I’ll just get to the ugly truth: Clean out the filing cabinet. – YES Do some fall decluttering and get rid of at least 50 things. – YES Make and complete October’s menu plan. – NO Get the house “decorated” for Halloween.  I use that term loosely, because I’m not big on […]

Well, I didn’t post a 5 Things Challenge last week, so I’ll be going off of my goals from the week before. I apologize to my readers and friends for the sporadic posts!  I hope that it’ll get better soon, and that I’ll transition to my new schedule quickly.   Here’s how I did from the last list: Can a batch of tomatoes – YES Wednesday meeting @ Buddy Boy’s school. – YES Call SSI and sit on the dang […]

Well, this is it for me.  The beginning of me being a working mom.  (Not that I wasn’t already a working mom, but now I’m getting PAID to work)  I’m scared to death, can you tell?  I will hopefully be able to keep up with things on the blog, but there is no doubt that my internet time will be lessened, and hey, frankly it’s probably not a bad thing.   Here’s how I did last week: Get September’s menu […]

The last week of summer. That went by fast.  I’m gonna miss hanging with my munchkins all day. Although, the house may be cleaner now.  There’s always a silver lining, right?   Here’s how I did last week: Annual backyard camp out. – YES Make and freeze a bunch of after school snacks. – YES Volunteer at the school, take my daughter to her SEP. – YES Take the kids to do some last minute summer stuff – YES, Munchkin […]
