This Week The Plan

Well I just got home from the dentist and the grocery store. Baby is sleeping in the car.. where she will hopefully STAY asleep for the next few minutes before I have to go get Kid from preschool. Don't worry it isn't that cold toady and I go check on her every four minutes! But I really want to get this done and posted since I do ... yes I really do... find my week is a LOT less crazy and hectic when I do a plan.

So I was just sitting down to weigh in on all the broccoli hate from this morning and finally get around to posting my plan when what do I see all over the Oriental rug? Yes dog shit.. and not just shit that you can pick up... vile disgusting liquid poop. I'm just leaving it. I cannot even deal with the gagfest of cleaning it right now... and since Baby is safely off the floor I'm putting it off until I get this done. Have I ever mentioned how much I hate him?

Okay onto the plan:

(In the next two weeks I think I'm going to increase takeout and cut myself some massive slack as I just can't make a stocking, and handle everything else, and cook, with both kids trying to electrocute themselves with the Christmas lights... I just can't do it!)

Monday - Pot Roast w/ noodles and steamed carrots

Tuesday - Tortellini w/ Bacon & Peas and steamed broccoli

Wednesday - Kid & Mr F date night

Thursday - Pork tenderloin w/ rice pilaf and green beans

Friday - Meatball Soup w/ pesto bread

Saturday - takeout

Sunday - Salmon Noodle Casserole


I'm trying to figure out what I can do to stay in maintenance mode while not losing any of my endurance... but keeping in mind that the next 2 weeks are a little busy.. so I'm going to do 3 cardio sessions of 60-80 minutes each. I'm also going to finally get back on board with my pilates training and plan to do 2 full session on the reformer/trap table.


Obviously I need to spend a little more time vacuuming under the dining room table!
Other than that I need to do all the laundry and (gasp) unpack from Disney World (what?! It is summer clothes!)
I already (mostly) cleaned off my desk, paid bills, and just have some filing to do.

Christmas Readiness:
(Big Time lowered standards in this department. Tree is up... but Baby is only 10 months old and "no" is meaningless.. it isn't going to be very *decorated* this year. I'm also just trying to be more zen and less "ahhhhhhhh" about it all and everything looks great as is.. we don't need to bring up all 6 freaking bins of Christmas crap this year.)

*Pick up the xmas cards and address envelopes
*Write or "ghost write for Mr F" our Xmas letter (of course we send one.. what did you expect?)
*Finish decorating
*Buy more red felt for Baby's stocking and notions (yes I did my layout and made my patterns!!!)
*Finish online shopping!
*Make some cookies

In midst of a sickly sleeping, my pup decided it was a good idea to puke at 2am. Dealing with that while your head is pounding is no fun. I can relate to dogs making messes at very inconvenient times! heh. Good luck with it all! Your plan sounds like you can definitely accomplish it!

You are my hero! I should be doing all those things, and instead I'm slogging my way through my Google reader backlog. Criminy, but there's a lot to catch up on!

dog shit/puke.. no good...ever

and yes I think I'm doing a good job of being more realistic with what I can accomplish.

avery gray,
oh I've been there...
I have MAJOR procrastination issues!

Heather said...

Six freaking bins? Wow. Then again, I have two, which have absolutely nothing of value in them, yet I pack them away for next year, year after year.

Tina said...

I'm stuck on sending out Christmas cards/letters until D gets here next week. Nothing like waiting until the last minute.

I'm very sorry that hateful dog did not eat up(or lick up) his liquid shit. It really would've made your day that much brighter.

I'm really jealous and interested in your pilates machine...picture please!!

Mrs. Furious said...

in time you too can collect an unseemly amount of ornaments, garland, and such :)
The sad thing is we actually have an AMAZING collection of beautiful glass ornaments.. all of which are not going to see the light of day this year!

Mrs. Furious said...

annoyingly the only shit he won't eat is his own!

I've got THIS.. and don't look at the price!

I used Kodak gallery through Target and got my cards done in an hour! Now it will take me more than an hour to stuff them and address them...
