Confessions of a so-so planner (and What's For Dinner)

I am not organized!  This will more than likely surprise any of my co-workers who read this because at work I am ridiculously organized.  I plan my lessons out weeks (if not months!) in advance much to the chagrin of the members of my course team who are not so crazy anal um...organized.  At work, I always know what comes next....   

 But at home it's anyone's guess!!

I work to come up with plans and strategies to improve this.  I make lists, lay out clothes for the next day, put A's clothes in the drawers in outfits so I don't forget what goes with what, get containers for items so they have a place and but just about every organization tool or book I see, but nothing seems to work!  I have come to realize that I may just need to accept the chaos that surrounds me as a byproduct of being a full-time teacher momma!

Now for the confession...I kind of don't care that my house is a mess or that I don't always know where everything is.  I would rather spend my time playing with A, reading him a book or just sitting on the couch watching a movie with little A (confession #2, my child watches tv), I am on a roll with these confessions today haha!  Little A and I have a system that works for us and we are rocking it!  I have come to realize that there are a lot more important things in life than always knowing what comes next...just don't ask me to stop planning at work :)

What's For Dinner:

Monday:  Salmon and Lemon Dill Roasted Potatoes (quartered red potatoes tossed in olive oil, lemon juice and fresh dill.  Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes or until fork tender on cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray)

Tuesday:  Crock Pot Chicken Tacos

Wednesday:  Burgers and grilled fruit (pineapple, pear, banana and apple)

Thursday: Chicken Enchilada Bake (will use the leftover chicken from the tacos on Tuesday.  Changes: peppers on one half only, salsa instead of enchilada sauce, low fat cheese)

Friday: Pizza

Saturday: Eat out/Order In

Sunday: Steak and Tuna Steak on the grill, fresh green beans and brown rice


What for dinner at your house this week?


  1. So funny you say that. All my coworkers at the college comment, that I am so organized. My house is a mess of baskets with stuff that needs to be put away. I agree, my free time is for my 3 special little people and my hubby. When our kids grow up they will not remember that we put the laundry away, they will remember the special times spent together.
