Another Crazy Week

So last week was crazy. I need to stop saying that, because it just normal for us. On Wednesday Liz hurt her back at practice so Thursday she stayed home. Friday she could barely walk so we went off to the doctor. Turns out she has a horrible pulled muscle. Thankfully by Sunday night she was doing better, but she still has a ways to go to get back to “normal.”

After last week, I have decided I need to sit down and come up with a better way to do things for scheduled doctor’s appointments. It seems like we are constantly running around with the children to to these things. So my goal this week is to sit down and come up with a way to get them all scheduled so I only have 1 or 2 days a month that are crazy.

We also haven’t gotten the items for the Square Foot Garden. We are having problems finding the materials to mix the soil. So another goal is to call around to some of the nurseries and find them. It may take a week or two until we can get to them and get the supplies. I am also going to call the County and see if we are able to keep some chickens on our property for laying eggs, since the price of eggs keeps going up.

We did a Spring Cleaning this weekend so I only have a few more minor things to get done like washing the curtains in the bedrooms and shampooing the carpets. It has been very rainy here so I haven’t wanted to do them for fear they won’t dry quickly. While the outsides of things look great, I have been noticed I need to do an inside of things decluttering, so I am going to start in the kitchen and go through the cabinets and closets and get rid of things we do not use anymore. Once the kitchen is done I will move on to the master bedroom closet and my dresser.

I am also going to make some breakfast items. The children aren’t real big cereal fans, so having something for them to eat in the mornings can be a challenge. I figure I can make a few batches of breads, muffins, pancakes and waffles and freeze them. Then the children will have things they can quickly fix in the morning if I am hung up with the babies.
