First Day of School & Menu

So just a little post (maybe you know how I can get). Since it is the first day of school and the first day of working our life back into the normal routine with no more crazy running around for at least a little bit I thought I would force myself to make a post and see if I can also get back into the routine.

Getting ready for school was crazy. We went school shopping for Brielle yesterday and then while packing up the backpacks we realized that the school supply list for Katherine had changed from last month! So Peter went back out to pick up the new supplies and also to print out some wedding invitations for a friend of ours since he had kind of been putting it off just because the idea of 'home' was so appealing.

Things got sorted and I even painted the girls finger nails this morning. They are both really excited to get back to school and friends. Mind you at current my house looks like a tornado hit it! There are a lot of things that are going to have to shift now that school has started and on top of it I haven't had much time at all with the kids so while walking through the store yesterday I felt every nerve was frayed. It's not that the girls were being bad I'm just not used to the non-stop questions. I think the children are trying to prepare me for a game show.

I hope the kiddos have an insanely awesome day! 

Other things I need to do is really come up with a clear meal plan instead of things being all over the place. For right now this is how it looks. 

Today: Chicken Helper & Steamed Veggies with cheese sauce (thinking I can just melt some velveeta in a pan that should work)

Thursday: Royal Round Steak (I wonder if I should try to remember to take pictures and give this a new posting by itself since it is just mixed in with one of my blogs)

Friday: Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup

Saturday: Make your own pizza (which note to self I need to check around for pizza crust I hate making my own)

Sunday: Heck if I know yet. Maybe Chili Dogs? We'll have to see. 

As you can see I'm disorganized as all get out hopefully by next week I'll be ready to put things in their proper order. 
Well I guess it's 8 o'clock I better finish getting ready for work! 

Have a great day!


  1. I hope your girls have a wonderful first day of school! I laughed at the idea of our children preparing us to be on a game show...the big question is which game show? We've used the pizza crust recipe from the Money Saving Mom recipe around here before and liked it (the nice thing with that one is you don't have to wait for it to rise).

    1. Jeopardy I'm pretty sure but they don't let me pick the categories.
