I'm definitely struggling with time management while managing 3 kids of vastly different ages, interests, and eating requirements. I also don't want to take too much time away from my niece's visit. We've had tons of fun (and spent way more money than I would have liked).
I'm still researching finance stuff up the wazoo. I'm learning a lot and feeling like I'm almost ready to put some new things in place. Stay tuned on that front as I will surely pass along anything I decide to do.
I'm freaking excited today because we got our new National Geographic in the mail. It's feature story is on saving energy at home. This is one of the big things I've been wanting to tackle. Our electric and heating bills have been through the roof since we moved down here and we need to find ways (and implement them) to cut our bills. Pronto.
My Tivo died (yeah the one that is less than 6 months old) so my workouts got sidetracked last week. We've got the replacement and I'm hoping to start up once my niece goes home tomorrow. I really need to get back in shape. The whole situation is killing me... physically, emotionally, the whole nine yards.
Okay... on to the plan...
Sunday - Scallion & Ginger Shrimp w/ Noodles
Monday - Spaghetti & Meatballs w/ green beans
Tuesday - Black Bean & Turkey Tacos w/ avocado
Wednesday - Salmon Noodle Casserole w/ sauteed mushrooms, salad
Thursday - Cornflake Crusted Tilapia, broccoli in garlic oil
Friday - Pizza, salad, SANGRIA
Saturday - Quesadillas w/ rice & beans
Sunday - Penne w/ Turkey Meat Sauce & green beans
That's it for now. It's really hard for me to get anything done until we get back in our regular (non hosting) routine.
I'll leave you with this....
That's me attempting to make kettle corn... note the eye protection. We were chanting "horrible, horrible, horrible burns" the entire time after reading the warnings that went along with the recipe. The whole experience was traumatizing and better left to carnival professionals.
