School starts soon. The sales and signs are popping up all over town. Every school year I had a desire that this would be the year I was organized. Isn’t there something inspirational about a blank notebook and fresh paper? Well, I hate to break it to you and myself, but it has never happened. I can be flighty, but this year I have some accountability. It’s not just an in my head “I’ll do better.” This year it’s public and there are others joining the journey. (If you are on Twitter, you’re welcome to join us. Just do a search for #backontrack to see what we’re up to).
Today I tackle the laundry monster. It’s the first Monday of the month so the pile is extra intimidating. I have serious allergies and dust mites enjoy noshing on dead skin. Lovely. Where does most of our dead skin end up? In our beds, where we tend to spend about 1/3 of our time. To combat this all sheets are washed weekly, blankets and mattress pads monthly. Fun? Not really, but there is something nice about ending the day in a freshly made bed.
This week’s menu plan is to clean out the fridge and pantry. We’ll have a few interesting combinations, but there will be money saved. This week I am reinstituting our meatless Mondays and fish /seafood Fridays.
My last personal goal of the week is to get my butt in bed at a decent time.
Ivy will be manning the helm over the next few days as I try to work on some more behind the scenes tools to make this site more useful for all of our readers.
What are your goals for this week as we edge closer to the tail end of summer vacation?
