It's going to be on the chilly side here today. I have lots I need to do, but will have to narrow the list down since I have to take the kids to the ortho today.
~kids off to school
~currently drinking coffee, yum
Need to do:
~shower and dress
~go to the office to turn in my paperwork
~pick kids up from school and take them to ortho
~pick up my brother's taxes
~take kids back to school
~make laundry soap (a must since I am completely out)
~scrub the stove
~leftovers for supper
~relax and enjoy the rest of the evening
After I get off of work I plan to get the following things done:
- Cook dinner
- Clean up after dinner
- Get one load of laundry done
- Fold some clothes that have been hanging dry
- I need to get a start on the weekends cleaning because I am working at my 2nd job a bunch this weekend. I am going to aim to get the great room straightened, dusted and vacuumed.
- After I get bored with cleaning I will work on my quilt and watch a little TV.
It's an easy day for me, I spent most of yesterday doing a deep all over house cleaning and laundry so I'm good on all of that.

I haven't done much today. Had a friend over and made soap and that was about it. I've cleaned up most of the soapmaking stuff, but I still need to do dishes and think about dinner! I'll hit the gym tonight, but probably won't get much else done today!
not much going on here. Life has been fairly frugal for the past month. I can't get out much because of a hand injury, so I'm spending almost no money. Dh does spend a bit more on food than I'd like, but hey, he's cooking.
1. pick up check and cash
2. fill gas tank up
3. hit the Amish store:heartsm:
4. go to dollar store
5. go to IGA store for meat
6. put groceries away
7. fix dinner/used up leftover hamburger and torillas
8. do dishes
9. put clothes away
10. get things ready for work tomorrow.
11. say goodnight gracie
got a few things done today. Homeschooled the kids, cleaned the house top to bottom (I find the more often I do it the less time it takes), cleaned out the dog lots, and all the regular stuff. DH spent his day at the dr's office, so that was co-pay plus cost of prescriptions, but not too bad all together. Tomorrow will be my busy day.
No spend day today... Drove to school and straight home. Took nalgene bottles with water for beverage and a pb&j sandwich for lunch. We're eating odds'n'ends for supper so things don't go to waste... Fairly frugal day.
