If you’re new to Home Ec -I know there are some new lurkers about, ’cause I’m a creepy stat watcher- sometimes on Sundays we have the Sunday confessional. It’s something I came up with a couple years ago to try to keep things honest. It’s all too easy when running a site like this to only focus on the parts of life that we want others to see. It’s not a celebration of mediocrity, rather it’s just an acknowledgement that life isn’t always like the glossy magazines or home inspiration shows. In real life we don’t have a set crew and designers to follow behind and make everything right.
The current truth is, I’ve been really scattered lately and I haven’t been following my own advice. You see that yellow sticky right up there? That’s the cleaning schedule I’ve used for a very long time and it works.
When I do it.
Yesterday I spent a healthy portion of an all-too-gorgeous Saturday playing catch up, so hopefully when Monday rolls around, I don’t start off feeling behind.
I don’t even want to talk about how off-track I’ve gotten with diet and exercise. Some of it I have a legitimate reason, the rest has been allowing stress to have its way with me.
Another deadline with the book is on the horizon and I’ve got to get things prepped to roll on auto-pilot.
This reminds me, I’m going to revamp Fearless Fridays to be a once-a-month carnival. It’ll take place on the first Friday of each month, this means instead of a week, you have an entire month to try a new technique, ingredient, or recipe in the kitchen. Sounds reasonable, right? I’ll post more details later this week.
I think, unless there’s a public outcry that I will do away with the Menu Mondays here. I may instead put them on my personal site or I could post a menu / shopping list with recipes already in the index, if that is something readers would be interested in.
I think that’s everything I had to get off my chest. What about you? How have you really been doing?
