It appears I’m jumping right into busy work days this January. Last week I ended up working Wednesday through Friday. This week (so far) I’m working full days on both Monday and Wednesday.
There was a bit of a schedule mix up last week and so I’m wondering if those are the only days. Need to confirm things tomorrow. I do hope to spend a little bit of time in a quiet house this week. Missed it last week.
However, since tomorrow is a full day at work, I’m putting my Happy Homemaker Monday post together tonight. Be sure to go check things out over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom!
Let’s look at the upcoming week.
Nice but weird for January. Predicted high of almost 60 tomorrow! Exciting for a preschool work day minus the now 70% chance of rain tonight. Rain = mud. Not as fun as you might think. Coldest day this week is Wednesday with a high of only 38 degrees. Could change, of course.
On The Breakfast Plate
Planning on my new favorite Chobani Flip flavor, coconut snowball. And coffee. Always coffee.
Right Now I Am
Working on this post, half-listening to the documentary on Theodore Roosevelt my husband’s watching.
On My To Do List
- Finish laundry, sort through our clothes
- Finish putting away Christmas (tell me I’m not the only one)
- Mail one last Christmas gift (plans changed so now I’m mailing gifts)
- Go to grocery store for produce/lunch items
- Get a new purse (zipper broke on my current one)
One of the Amazon Prime Kindle First choices, Rock Needs River: A Memoir About A Very Open Adoption by Vanessa McGrady. I’m not sure what I think about this one yet.
On The TV This Week
On Netflix: Got pulled right into Tidying Up With Marie Kondo. I like it, very positive and inspiring. One episode left to watch. Also, watching season 3 of The Magicians.
On regular TV: watched God Friended Me tonight and will likely watch Seal Team on Wednesday. Decided those are my 2 “go to” shows for now. Everything else is hit and miss.
On The Menu This Week
MONDAY: Spaghetti and meatballs, salad, bread sticks *I work 8:30-6* *G has pep band*
TUESDAY: pork chops, baked potatoes *G has pep band*
WEDNESDAY: BBQ sandwiches, French Fries (already in freezer) *I work 8:30-6*
THURSDAY: Tacos *MNO*
Favorite Blog Post This Week
Since I enjoyed the Marie Kondo show so much, I looked to see if she had a website. Of course, she did! Thought this post about what to do with gifts you don’t really like was interesting.
