I can't chat about the week to come without touching on the week that was... what. a. week! If you read last Sunday's blog post, you know I had a lot on the go. While my planner was definitely packed, I thought I had it all choreographed perfectly, and I did, until we had two snow storms! Now that I'm on the other side of things, I can chuckle over the chaos, but while in the thick of it, it was rough going. The hardest challenge that I'm currently dealing with is juggling between my online content and KonMari business while still being a full-time stay at home mom. I'm in the process of trying to establish childcare for at least a couple of days a week, but until that gets sorted... coffee (and prayer)! Having two storm days really threw everything for a loop, but was also a good wake up call in terms of scheduling and really planning ahead.
Despite the nuttiness, we still managed to have some fun, too! There is something exciting and cozy about snow days and I swear I get as giddy as Hudson when we receive notice of no school. The kids spent lots of time in the new snow, watching movies and enjoying some crafting. Hudson had his first piano lesson and thoroughly enjoyed it!
This week, while busy, isn't nearly as hectic as the last. Valentine's Day is only a few days away and I haven't done a single thing! I'm hoping to be able to square away the kid's school goodies and decorate a little on Sunday (I'll share, of course). On the project front, I'm looking forward to Mairi's new bed arriving so we can finish updating her bedroom. My other task of organizing and decorating my office is taking much longer than I anticipated, but there's really no deadline, so I'm simply working on it when I find I have the time. I'd like to look at doing something fun next weekend with the family, suggestions are welcome!
Meal plan is another simple one this week. With some messy weather heading our way, I'm hesitant to plan for anything too complicated.
Weekly Meal Plan – February 12-18 Sunday – Slow-cooker chicken and stuffing, potatoes and root veggies Monday – Baked mac & cheese, spinach salad Tuesday – Turkey Ranch wraps and veggie sticks Wednesday – Breakfast for supper Thursday – Baked salmon, wild rice, roasted veggies Friday – Tacos Saturday – Chilli
Wishing you all a wonderful and relaxing week ahead!
