Menu Planning Monday

Running a home daycare and being part of the CACFP NYS Food Program , I make sure to do a weekly breakfast, snack and lunch menu so I can be prepared but dinner has gotten missed during weekly grocery shopping. So I find myself struggling come Wednesday and Thursday on something creative and yummy to make. So its time to start again.... plan plan plan, which is perfect to start now because I will be leaving Wednesday afternoon for Chicago so I only have a couple days to play haha! Easing into :) So here is my dinner list for the week:


Meatball subs (thank you Lisa, yummy idea) with frozen meatballs I had leftover from a quick dinner last week, salad and tator tots. (we are going to a basketball game in the city this afternoon so I wont have a crazy amount of time to make dinner when we get home)


Buffalo Chicken wing pizza and green beans.


Something for my husband and the kids in the crockpot because I will be at the airport during dinner time on the way to OPRAH! Probably hamburger/veggie soup which is the hubby's favorite


I will be living it up in Chicago with NO children and NO hubby will be on his own for dinner....I am interested to see what he comes up with. My guess....grilled cheese and canned soup or pizza :)


chicken Caesar wraps, french fries and homemade applesauce


Hubby and I are off to the city for my friend's bf's birthday dinner. The big 30 and we are all having a wonderful dinner together


Spaghetti and meatballs, salad, garlic bread :)

28 days of organizing....

I do homeschooling for my preschooler and toddler and I have two boxes of curriculum taking up room in my laundry room/bathroom area. I have been staring at them and not quite sure what to do but finding it really hard to find what I need for teaching that day. So I emptied out and reorganized the drawers with labels. Now there the drawers have craft supplies, curriculum, and past curriculum all organized it it. Also I put the curriculum in order so I just grab the bag on top and am all set for teaching. I use Mother Goose Time and really love it! Everything comes pre packaged, lesson plan book, almost all the materials you will need (except glue, scissor...things you should already have) and music CD that my kids LOVE! So it feels good to have the junk thrown out and drawers neat!! So far the room is already looking and feeling a millions times bedroom....still needs WORK!

stomach bug puts holt on organizing.....

sick kids and sick me has put a damper in my organizing. Nasty stomach bug has hit my house starting last Thursday and still lingers so I haven't updated anything or posted pictures. I did put up the laundry sorter which looks great. How crazy how something sooo easy makes such a different in a spot. Have gotten the kids into sorting their laundry in the different areas instead of just throwing it on the floor....they really like it. Might get one for their room....hmmm I like that idea...maybe one for each of our rooms :)
OK baby N is sicky sick and needs mommy time.....

Day 3: Remove and Sort (Bedroom)

So my therapist says that I have attention deficit disorder and I thought he was just making excuses for my lack of motivation to finish things, or many degree programs I have started and switched but I am actually starting to think that it may be true! Instead of doing the 15 minutes in my room I went shopping last night. I did need clothes....I swear! I am totally between sizes but reallly......where am I going to put them...have you seen my closet! I totally do things that really drive myself nuts sometimes.

So our plan today is to remove and sort.....eeekkkk I need to remove everything to a separate room which not sure how that is going to work but maybe to the hallway. I will separate into piles KEEP (hanger), KEEP (drawer), DONATE, STORAGE, TOSS

this room scares me a bit and will take a bit of time so I am going to give 45 minutes today, probably after hubby gets home. I will post pictures later......wish me luck....
