Monday check in

We are all recovering from Big Tall Hubby's busy prom/after prom weekend. (And his big PhD paper/test studying. I will be so glad when he is done with this program, I have learned I really do not like reading PhD research papers.)

Look at my cutie patootie... this is my Zoe a few weeks ago at the Father/Daughter dance. I thought I'd post this since I didn't have a prom-related picture. Big Tall Daddy got her a corsage this year and she thought that was pretty special. I remember her first dance and she couldn't wait to dance all night with her special date. This year, she was telling him, "daddy you can't do that one move or it will embarrass me." Ey yi yi, they just grow up too fast!

I have a big "to do" wish list this week. See.

my things to do this week:

  • reschedule a couple appointments (telephone time is so hard around here!)
  • pack for a dance competition
  • order pics from Walgreens (they are having a good sale if you need to restock your pics)
  • clean my spice cabinet
  • drop off more Goodwill items
  • switch Parker's closet from winter to summer gear
  • wash our winter coats and put them away (but I might not be able to, it is so windy and chilly here!)
  • touch up the last of my wall patching jobs
  • retype my grocery check list
  • write some thank you notes
  • prep my laundry room for painting

I have big ambitions.

my menus for this week:

  • baked tortellini, roasted veggies, salad
  • chicken nuggets and oven potatoes (kid request)
  • sub sandwiches and chips (Big Tall Hubby request)
  • pizzas and salads
  • spaghetti, salad, homemade bread (kid request)
  • grilled chicken, rice and broccoli
  • tacos, rice, beans, chips & salsa (another kid request)

My kids wanted to "plan" our menus this week. I don't argue when they want to help. I hope to be more creative next week.  ;)

Have a super week everyone.

Type your grocery list? Girl you are crazy! Looks like you plan to get lots of stuff done this week. I was stuck at home today because hubby's truck is getting work done. It's amazing how much stuff you can get done when you're stuck at home! :) (without children of course!)

LOL, Kerri I was going to say the same thing! Type a grocery list? are too organized if you're doing that!

I agree, take all the help you can get when making menus! The job can get so tedious, don't you agree?

Zoe looks adorable!

Have a great day!
