Housekeeping Mission Statement

Today's assignment was to create a mission statement for my housekeeping goals and I have kind of done that already in another blog post, but I want to keep my Home Sanctuary posts together (so that I can also label them as well) so that I can track my points easier.  Don't understand what I'm talking about?  Click the Company Girl button right here <------- or on my sidebar to link to the blog and check it out!

But for now, on to the mission statement:

"I want to have the house organized and decluttered to make it easier for Hubby to keep up with the housework. I have been the one home full-time and I know how hard it can be to maintain the house when it's so full of stuff. What I would like to do is spend time on each of my days off from work and get rid of excess clutter around the house."  (quoted from my New Year's post) I want to be able to invite people in regardless of when they drop by.  I want my house to look lived in, I don't desire a model show home.  I want it to be comfortable.

Writing out the mission statement is worth 50 points.

Total for January:  50 points!

Menu Plan Monday

I haven't had a chance yet to really take stock of our panty, so here goes.  I have a feeling that this week will have a number of changes to the menu, so here goes...

Monday - dinner out with friends (we all have gift cards from Christmas to the same place)
Tuesday - dinner out with Boo (we have an appointment in another city and will be traveling and I am not sure about what time we will be able to eat.
Wednesday - leftovers (from Sunday's big meal with my family - we have leftover turkey and Hubby will make green bean casserole and mashed potatoes and homemade gravy to go with it)
Thursday - enchiladas, rice and beans
Friday - lasagna, broccoli, garlic bread
Saturday - pizza
Sunday - chicken, roasted potatoes and asparagus

Hopefully, we will stick to most of it. It all sounds really good to me!

I only planned dinner menus because the boys eat breakfast at school, the little kids usually have cold cereal, and Hubby and I aren't really much for eating first thing in the morning.

For lunch, all three boys eat at school, only Punky and Hubby eat lunch at home and that's all Hubby. And on Thursdays, they have their Daddy/daughter lunch date. I don't know why they do it on Thursdays, but they started it and now that's what they do. Sometimes, they will even bring me home something to eat too. Yummy!

I should eat more, especially if I want to be successful with my weight loss goals, but I really have a hard time eating enough, so I may just go ahead and start doing diet shakes just to make sure that I get adequate nutrition. Especially since I am on a completely different schedule from most people.
