I wasn't planning on a menu this week because we were going to go away but we decided to stay home.  I am really excited that we are going to take the week at home because this has been a busy time.  I am exhausted and we need a little more time to get things done around here. 

We planned on finishing up a few projects before my parents arrived before the holiday but that turned into a really busy day all day because they were stuck in traffic.  We cleaned out their room and moved all the boxes to the back bedroom because it only has a double bed.  We got the shelves painted and into the linen closet which I loaded with tons of towels and other things clearing out boxes.  We still have another set for the linen closet in our bedroom which are getting sanded tonight.  We thought that would be an easy process because at the old house we just bought new shelves but the ones at the store is 3-4 inches too short so we (and by that I mean my husband) sanded and painted the old ones to make them pretty again which means that we are going to have to do that for every closet :( 

We have been working on reorganizing and unpacking.  I moved everything out of the storage room and packed it a little better while setting up my son's bookcase in the basement play area.  Sadly, we still have seven boxes of just my son's books.  I also unpacked a few boxes of my books but I still have at least four and I think some are missing.  We (and by that I mean me) unpacked a ton of DVDs and other boxes to try to get everything ready to start living.  We are still missing a few things including the box for N and O DVDs so there is a box hiding somewhere in the mess.  My husband took batches of cardboard to the recycle center to clear out the mess.  I moved everything back into the storage room and we set up three new bookcases- two with DVDs and one with board games.  The one that had board games on it is now being used for video games and other things in the play area which I still have to set up.  We could probably do with a million more and they would all be filled with different things.

Anyway, long story to tell you that I had to quickly go through the freezer and cupboards to figure out what to eat this week and hopefully pre-planning some of January.  We have a lot of things in the house so here is hoping that I can make a plan for most of the month without too many things to get at the store....who knows what will happen because it always seem to run out of something super important that sends me to the store.  Going to quickly work on the January menu plan and hope that I can get it done before January!!  Hope you have a good week!
