I Currently Own Two Pair of Pants….My Experience With the Konmari Method of Decluttering

My headline is mildly misleading.  I have two and a half pair of pants, two that I don’t hate and one that I do hate but I’ve dragged out of the “goodwill pile” three times now in desperation. See the Konmari Method basically works like this: category by category, you pull out all items in […]

Mom, What’s For Dinner? Vol. 3

Holy Yes, it’s Friday! It’s been another week that I’ve basically sucked at menu planning.  Wait, no, I’m awesome at menu planning; it’s the shopping and execution that’s been giving me trouble.  So here’s how this week went down:  Sunday I made chili.  It was awesome.  Go me!  I peaked early.  Monday, I didn’t feel […]

A Day in the Life of a Working Mom

Time Management Basics First, let me say that I don’t really like the title “working mom” because I’m hard pressed to think of a mom who doesn’t work.  But work-away-from-home-mom is too much of a mouthful, so I’ll stick with the standard.  I’ve already shared with you the magic that is Flylady; I couldn’t keep […]

Mom, What’s For Dinner? Vol. 2

So my last post was the instructions for the soup I ended up making Monday night.  Tuesday, I made the pork chops. Wednesday I did the French dips, which nobody ate because nobody was home, which is usually when I give up on menu planning.  Last night, Thursday, no one was hungry at dinnertime so […]

Cabbage Sausage Potato Soup

Ok so Monday I posted our menu for the week, then I immediately went home and jumped right off script.  In my defense, I had planned to make this soup on Sunday but we decided chili rellanos from the Mexican market deli sounded better so the soup didn’t happen.  Then, on Monday, the pit stop […]

You Can Lead A Horse to Water…

Yeah, you know the rest. You can’t make unhappy people happy.  This thought jut randomly popped into my head this afternoon and I think it deserves a little bit of digging into. This past Friday, we had dinner with my bestie and I’m not even sure how it happened but we all started dispensing life-advice […]

Mom, What’s For Dinner? Vol. 1

Ok I know there’s a saying about the “best laid plans…” but I’m in a frazzled state and can’t quite remember it right now.  For accountability’s sake, I was fully planning to menu plan on Thursday, grocery shop over the weekend and share our family’s menu plan with you today.  The menu plan is pretty […]

Fail to Plan or Plan to EAT!

Menu Planning Week One In Flylady-land, our habit for the month of November is menu planning.  I will admit, in the past, this is not a skill I’ve developed so I’m excited to give it another go.  My menu planning usually goes something like this: Do you see what the problem is?  I see it […]
