A menu plan & a request for it to cool off

And, by cool off, I'm referring to the weather. Although, I may give up Facebook until the election is over, so that area could "cool off" as well, and I wouldn't mind. ;-)

It's way too hot here today - 85, and standing out in the sun for a soccer game (little brother subbed for older brother's team & scored two goals - it was a fabulous game). I also went on an hour walk with the kids, and all of that direct sun really took it out of me. I'm now crashed out on the sofa. ;-)

Here's what we have on the list for the weekend. I'll get some of this done today, and the rest tomorrow:

  1. Menu plan
  2. Shopping list for the week
  3. Trip to Costco
  4. Trip to the produce stand
  5. Date night! 
  6. Get cash for the sitter
  7. Make banana bread
  8. Laundry
  9. Saturday soccer game
  10. Sunday soccer game (x2)
  11. Budget
  12. Car rental for Hawaii trip
  13. Finalize plans for trip at the end of the month
  14. Catch up on some email
  15. Drop off books at the library
  16. Schedule for the week
  17. Carpool schedule
  18. Work schedule for the week
  19. Make taco meat - freezer

  22. Yoga
  23. 3 mile run

  1. i feel almost guilty as I had a lazy, but relatively productive Saturday. I haven't thought beyond pork chops for tomorrow, and not even sure if I'll make dinner tonight-maybe a frozen pizza and the lastof a bag f mozarella sticks and salad.

  2. I am with you on the Facebook moratorium until after the election!

  3. The election doesn't even directly affect me, and I agree - I'm happy with a moratorium too! :P Hope you got a few more items scratched off your list and that it cools down for you xx

  4. Be happy to send you the foot of snow we got Wednesday last week :-)
