Help! My House Has Taken Over!

And it is time to take back control!

Last week was a very difficult week for us for many reasons, including the fact that Andrew was sick. Other reasons I am not ready to talk about yet. However, in a weeks time, my house absolutely took over. I had no motivation to do anything more than take care of Andrew. So, the dishes piled up, the clutter mounded, and for the first time in several months, all of my laundry baskets were filled with clean clothes and the floors were piled with dirty clothes!

**I have recently learned how to cross things out in HTML thanks to the Playful Professional, so I will now be crossing things off as I get them done. I love being able to do this!**

1. Get the laundry done!
2. Clean up the clutter on/under/around the coffee table.
3. Write up the final proposal for Scripture Memorization Program.
4. Wash the guest room sheets.
5. Get my direct deposit changed to the new bank.

We are a little behind in our budget because of some "unexpected" expenses that came up. Namely: Property taxes for our cars. Oops! I forgot about those. So, I am trying to keep our menu as inexpensive as possible for the next two weeks. We will be purchasing only the bare necessities.

Monday: Cheeseburgers and Tater Tots

Tuesday: Grilled Ham & Cheese with Tomato or Cream of Potato Soup

Wednesday: Leftover Cowboy Soup (from freezer)

Thursday: Pulled Pork Sandwiches- We never got around to this a couple of weeks ago, so I put the pork in the freezer.

Friday: Sloppy Joes

Saturday/Sunday: Leftovers unless something else comes up.

I may try to make some Apple Dumplings this week...sometime. They are amazing!

We're behind in our budget, too. I think the hardest thing for me in sticking to a grocery budget is that at the beginning of each month, we seem to need all the big-ticket things - cat food, laundry detergent, diapers, etc. Once I get that stuff and a week's worth of groceries, more than half of my budget for the month is gone!

Surely I'll get this figured out some day...

Glad to have you for a company girl...wow, you got a lot done today! And even made a menu plan....you are ahead of me!

Hope things are getting back in order for you!I understand about the budget thing. The hardest part for us is when we see something on sale that we normally use. It is a deal, but not in our budget at that moment... - - and in reply to your question on my blog comments. We are currently living in the midwest. :)
