I'm Back!!!

I took a long leave of absence from the blog world due to a busy work schedule and a very busy life. Everything should be a little slower now!

I feel like I should catch you up-we now have a puppy, little Molly. She is a great pyrenees, translation, BIG white bear! She is 10 weeks old and 17 pounds, she is growing quickly. So my life has changed a little bit. I can't get quite as much done as I would like because I have a puppy following me around everywhere. The good news is that since we got the puppy my husband has gotten into work mode! I have gotten a new back door, a new entry table, and my buffet is next! Nothing like an addition to the family to give your husband a swift kick in the rear!

Tuesday Gameplan

To Do's
  1. put the sheets on the guest room beds (they have been waiting for me for a few days now)
  2. start cleaning laundry/mud room (this is the room where hubby is putting in the new door and a new cat door)
  3. make dinner (I buy in bulk from a local food distributor so I get a great deal. When I make chicken breasts I make at least 15 at a time-giving us both lunch for the week and dinner.)
  4. Start on Fall/Winter Event Calendar (you know I'm in a family with last minute people-so I have to plan plan plan!)
That should do it today! I can't get near as much done with Molly, but maybe I will get in shape!

Quick Tip: Make a calendar well in advance for the holidays. You know the fall and winter are some of our most busy times. With all the parties and decorating, it can be overwhelming. Make a calendar with all of your parties and family get togethers then look and see what you have time for. Loosely schedule in your decorating, wrapping, cooking, etc. times so you can see where you have extra time and where you need to do some "trimming".

Just when I think I"m doing good (my house is decorated for Fall!!!), you put me in my place.
I can't believe you make 15 chicken breasts at once. You are so inspiring!!!! Also, can you share a good chicken recipe?? Being pregnant makes me despise chicken but charlie loves chicken.
