The end of the month again!!  How did we get here because it took me so long to plan the month and it is already over!!  UGH!!  Here I am trying to plan for April and getting things done all over again. Do you ever have that feeling that we are doing the same thing day after day.  This was my month to feel like that between the busy-ness and the sicknesses in our house, I had trouble making it through the week and getting ahead but here is hoping for April.  Hope you have a great week!!


  1. Yes, I always feel like I'm in the Groundhog Day movie. It gets so repetitive! I rebelled last week (well, last month, really!) by doing absolutely nothing. OK, I'm exaggerating because I did so some things come to think of it, but menu planning is definitely something that I need to go back to doing and I wrote it on my to-do list for this week. I planned dinner for tonight while I was trying to fall asleep last night, but I'm stumped for the rest of the week right now. I'm sure I'll think of something, I have way too many recipe books and clipped recipes not to find something I'll feel like cooking, ha.

    Good luck with your April planning, Alison. I hope you're all feeling better. Being sick is no fun, but at least it was during Spring Break so your son didn't need to deal with falling behind at school too, right? A little silver lining :)

    Take care.

    1. Totally agree that I am in the middle of Groundhog Day movie (which I hate and my husband loves) because of the repetitive meal planning. I put my pasta day and my chicken and fries day and worked in a grilled chicken day because the weather and put in one day with some ground beef meal. I think that I am getting close to finishing April but I need to head out to the store and get a few more things which makes it a little harder to finish planning. I only have around $6 left in the budget so it isn't happening in March!!

      He ended up with strep and then started on the meds and his eye started getting bad!! Luckily we have the drops for that to get fixed to. I am so done with the never ending sicknesses but we are on the mend just in time to go back to school tomorrow. Glad that we didn't have to scramble for child care or taking days off work but I am not sure how much he would miss taking time off school but he would be sad that he wasn't seeing his friends!! Looking forward to everyone being healthy for at least the next month :)
