New Corner

Hi there!

I haven't been around much, but today I have a WEEKDAY off, so here I am!
I am so happy to have a weekday off because I can actually get some stuff done, which I can never seem to do on a weekend.
There are only 12 minutes until the next thing on my to-do list has to happen, so I'm going to blog super quick and be on my way.

On my weekdays off, which have been few and far between over the last 3 months, I sit down and make a list of what needs to happen that day and write out all the times that I will be doing those things. That way everything gets done and I don't get side tracked. Pathetic, I know, but it's the only system that works for me.

So it looks like I'm making my monthly dinner menu after this which is slotted to take 45 minutes. It's the only way I've found so far that 1) keeps us from eating out 2) stops food waste 3) keeps me sane throughout the day since I don't have to worry about what to make when I get home and 4) makes healthy eating much much easier. Maybe I'll document my menu calendar next time I blog.

After that I'm off to go jogging and then to the much dreaded Dept of Revenue.
Then grocery shopping, housework and 9 other things.
But everything will be done by 4:15, thanks to my handy to-do list time line.

I had Saturday off and Joe was out of town so I rearranged a bit.
Lately I haven't been able to satisfy my need for new stuff since we're saving for a house, so I have been doing other little things to make my living space seem new (by rearranging).
Info on sources, etc. over here.

Well it looks like I only have 1 minute left so time to wrap up. More later!
I hope you all had a nice holiday.
