If anyone knows of a cheap and/or free house keeper please send them my way.
I am trying to get back into meal planning to make things easier when I get home from work. Tonight we are having steak and baked potatoes and some kind of veggie. Tomorrow night I think burgers and maybe some homemade fries (I love julienning potatoes, tossing with a little olive oil and seasoning salt and baking them. So yummy and not all that bad for you!) Friday night... I dunno!
I am also trying to get the kids more involved in chores and we started giving them allowance ($5 a week) to encourage this.
Things I am trying to find time and energy to do in the near future are:
- Clean out pantry
- Organize kitchen (make room for wedding presents)
- Clean out and wash car (soooo bad after a few road trips over the summer!)
- Clean out and organize all of our closets and send rejected clothes to goodwill
And of course while I am trying to get everything done, I am getting a cold. So last night I said screw it and went to bed early. Yep... great wife and mother... not such a good housewife!!! LOL.
Please share any tips you might have! I tried fly lady, but it really doesn't work for a mom working full time I find.
