Fun is what you make it!

I should have checked the weather forecast before I made this week's FUN plans.  I was thinking of good indoor activities, but the days have been SO gorgeous we just had to get outside.  Instead of making scarves yesterday, we whipped up some banana bread and headed outside.  The girls made a game of scooter races on the lawn while Mr. A cheered them on.  Also, everyone got good and muddy in the sandbox.  That's how you know you've had fun!

Today's FUN plans say we're inflating the bouncy castle, but it looks like it's going to be warm enough to go outside again so I think we'll do that.  We may go for a walk, or if it's dry enough, putter around in the garden. 

What are you doing for FUN today?

Well, that was easy.

I sat down tonight to work on next week's meal plans, and realized there were five meals from this past week's plan that I didn't cook.  One thing or another came up and I wound up making pasta and grilled cheese -simple meals the kids always eat- for a couple of those nights, and the slow cooker lasagna and bean soup were such big recipes we had enough leftovers for both a lunch and a dinner from each.  So, that means last week's meal prep was minimal and this week's planning and shopping will also be much easier!  I love it when life works out that way.

Plans for Jan. 16 - 22 are here!

Finally - The Plan is Complete!

I've finally made up my mind and completed next week's plans.  Ah, it feels good to have some order back in my life!  Now, I just need to keep the discipline to stick to the plans and I should have a great week!  Does anyone have any tips for maintaining personal discipline?  Good advice is always welcome!  Please comment below.

Yes, I'm still alive.

I know, these posts are quite hit and miss...  I'm still trying to get back in the habit of blogging every day.  I have a leg up on next week though.  I have all our meals planned for the week of Jan. 10th.  I'm still working on FUN plans, but the meals are updated on my Week at a Glance page.
