Since I am working early tomorrow, I thought I’d write my post today.
My workday starts early tomorrow at 7:15a.m. Although it’s only a half-day tomorrow for me, I’m pretty sure I’ll come home in need of a nap.
Somehow, this week has a bit of a busy feel to it. I think it may just be me. It’s our first full week after spring break so back to official routines. I’m glad about it. And in need of a plan for it.
Breakfast Time…What Is On The Plate This Morning
I had a chocolate chip muffin, a few doughnut holes from the grocery store, a couple of slices of bacon, and coffee/hot chocolate. Not the most healthy breakfast.
On My To-Do List
Go to grocery store before it starts snowing
- Write this post/plan meals for the week (In progress)
- Clean up e-mail in boxes, reply to a few
- Clean house (either tomorrow afternoon or Wed)
- Take boys for haircuts
- Pretend spring/summer might arrive and do a clothing inventory
- Take G to bank
- Check and make sure all events are in calendar for spring/end of school year
I finally finished The Sentient Machine: The Coming Rise of Artificial Intelligence by Amir Husain! AND returned it to the library. New stack of books to settle down and read. I tore through The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins in one day. You can check out my reviews over on Good Reads if you want to know more of my thoughts on those two books.
Now, I’m hopping back and forth between reading The Naughty Nineties: The Triumph of the American Libido by David Friend and The Demon in the Freezer by Richard Preston.
On The TV This Week
I may or may not have watched enough Netflix over the weekend to see the message of shame (Are you still watching?) a few times. Finished the latest season of Better Call Saul. Watched a few more episodes of Heroes on Crackle TV. Need to make reading a priority this week to invigorate the brain cells, I think. Still, I will watch The Voice with my husband and The Flash if it’s a new one.
The Weather Outside Is
Quite confused. It’s snowing! Warmer days ahead (72 degrees on Thursday!?) followed by another cold weekend. Hopefully, no more snow after today but who knows.
On The Menu This Week
Want to break out of my menu rut (feels like we’re in one) this week. However, first let’s look at how we did last week:
Brunch leftovers, salad I think we may have had spaghetti this day
Spaghetti can’t remember, I think my husband may have made dinner for us
Pork Chops Brunch leftovers (by way of BBQ brisket sandwiches, fried potatoes, watermelon)
Left-Overs, Clean Out The Fridge Bacon and biscuits (I had a salad)
Chicken of some sort We ate at Sonic
Sunday (today): We’re having fish (crappie), maybe oven fried potato chips, and crunchy coleslaw
Hoping the menu goes a bit smoother this week and we’ll eat out a little less as well:
MONDAY: Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Verde *I work 7:15-11:30*
TUESDAY: Meatball Parmesan Casserole (I’ll probably make a side of spaghetti) *I work 8-4*
WEDNESDAY: Pork chops, sweet potatoes
THURSDAY: Taco salads, rice *I work 8:15-4:45*
FRIDAY: Hot dogs on the grill, leftovers *I work 8-4*
If I Have A Few Minutes To Myself I Will
Read my library books on the cold days and get outside with the camera and do some bird-watching on the warmer days.
What I’m Knitting, Sewing, or Creating
Nada. Need to change this one.
New Recipe I Tried Or Want To Try This Week
The Meatball Parmesan Casserole.

Not exactly a quote but I’ve had this song stuck in my head all day….
Make Your Own Kind of Music (Mama Cass Elliot)
And suddenly, I think I need to re-watch Lost.
