Let's get things done today

I'm so happy to have a weekend in between my business trip & our personal trip to Portland next weekend. School is out, and camp begins next week. The boys will do one week of camp, and then be gone for three weeks. They are very excited to see my parents. :-)

We have no soccer this weekend! Hurrah! We have plenty to do, and because we have no soccer commitments, I agreed that Sam could have a couple of friends over today. Originally the plan was to have them swim, but the weather doesn't look like it will cooperate. I'm sure they will find other things to do instead.

Here's what we plan to accomplish today:

  1. Menu plan
  2. Make a grocery list
  3. Costco
  4. Produce stand/Trader Joes (same complex)
  5. Clean the bathrooms
  6. Vacuum
  7. Mop
  8. Clean the kitchen
  9. Go for a run
  10. Bike ride with the kids (training for our event next weekend)
  11. List another couple of items on our neighborhood swap
  12. Work on our packing list for next week+

And, with that, I think I'll just check off #1. 

  • Friday - we went out to celebrate the last day of school. We had Greek food. Yum!
  • Saturday - M is making kebabs & rice
  • Sunday - I'm trying a new recipe - General Tso's chicken in the slow cooker. Will report back
  • Monday - leftover kebabs & rice
  • Tuesday - leftover General Tso's chicken & rice
  • Wednesday - finish up any remaining leftovers
  • Thursday - assuming we still have rice, I have chicken curry in the freezer that I'll defrost & serve with the remaining rice
  • Friday - we'll be eating at the airport before our flight
What about you? What are you hoping to do today?


  1. Live General Tsos chucken so will eagerly wait for results and recipe.

  2. Glad you are having a weekend at home without too many other activities. I am very interested in how the General Tso's crockpot chicken was. I love using the crock in the summer to keep from heating the kitchen.

  3. Did I already comment? Simple eating plans but need to get tasks done for week ahead. I'm missing my kid already but think more because I'm still in my funk and like to hear her.
