Two out of three

Well the family room got picked up and I got 2 loads of laundry done (not put away yet cause that would mean finishing something I start).  Unfortunately the dishes were left to continue fighting the good fight until Hubs and I get to them tonight.  So 2 outta 3 ain't bad! 

Tonight's goals:
  • Finish meal plan and associated grocery list
  • Put away laundry
  • Finish 2 loads of laundry and PUT THEM AWAY!

That's as far as I got with this post yesterday.  I had to run out of work after I realized I was already 10 minutes late starting my commute.  I did manage to relax all night!  Wait, you mean that wasn't on my list of things to do?  Oh well!  Maybe I need to start scheduling that in also. Do Stepfords do that?  Schedule the time needed to just breathe and take in life around you?  Probably not but dammit I NEEDED to watch 'Beauty and the Beast' with Hubs and Bugga.  So there!

Today has gotten off to a rocky start because Bugga decided to sleep in until 10 am.  Since he's my alarm clock that means we all got started a bit late.  We're catching up now.  Just got done throwing a load of laundry in and will put the finishing touches on my grocery list.  I'll try to work on uploading our meal plan for the next 2 weeks so I can keep myself accountable. 

Today we've got a ton of running around to do so I'm hoping tomorrow can be a cleaning day around the house.  Knowing us though we'll get sidetracked by something more fun and I'll spend the week playing catch up and wishing Hubs was home to help.  That's always the hard part.  Wanting to enjoy his time off with him but also making it a productive time.  We're still working on that balance.  Any tips?

  1. hmmm, I guess once you get more into the swing of things, there will be more time to just relax too.
    you could try a plan where you have certain jobs to do on a particular day of the week, and make sure at least one of your days off together are free and clear!
    and Im sure most real stepfords either dont work or are super manic. or both.
    its just nice to have a fairly tidy house and a nice balance of home fun, I think!
