Good Monday morning! What does your week look like? I finally have a week with only one day of work! Of course, it's going to rain three days this week. Mad We need the rain, but why this week?

Dh and I have been cleaning up the junkyard that is our screened in front porch, so this week I hope to finish that job. I guess that is something I can do when it's raining. And I have a lot of planting to do...this week I think we can be sure that there will be no more frosts till fall.

I am seeing my rheumatologist this morning for a routine check. I have been having so much pain in my feet that I have taken to bringing a cane with me if I know I will have to be on my feet, and I never take a walk without my walking sticks anymore. I am hoping she will be able to offer me some alternatives.

Here's my plan:

Coffee & quiet
Aquafit 8:30
Rheumatologist 10:15
Get pizza for guys coming to burn a big brush pile today (cuz it's raining...)
Harmony Nite--last regular rehearsal before concert! Shocked

Dh works 9:30-6
Aquafit 8:30
Bible study 10:00
Garden store
Plant garden
Clean upstairs
Fiber Fun 5 pm Pizza Nite!
Prayer group

Dh works 9:30-6
Aquafit 8:30
Knitting group 10:30
Work in garden--planting and weeding
Work on porch
Black bean soup for dinner

Dh works 9:30-5
Work at museum 9:30-4
Farmer's Market? (it is supposed to rain...)
Book discussion 6:30

Aquafit 8:30
Grocery shopping
Rainy day--work on porch with dh
Date night--Museum anniversary dinner with dh Very Happy

No special plans...

Post your plans here!

Have a wonderful week! SOAP for all of you.

Lisa T.

I'm feeling good (and tired after a beach day, yesterday). This week is the *last* of the co-op that I have had a love/hate relationship with - tomorrow is their final day & party, but it conflicts with a couple of things we could/rather attend. However, they are scheduled to have a little party. My son doesn't want to miss out, and I'm letting him choose. I might not know until this evening.

Edit - man, I had posted how I was planning on making and chowing down on some cheesecake this week for Shavuot. Completely did not look at the calendar correctly. I have an entire week before any of that goodness happens.

It does mean that my calendar this week has opened up.

Good Morning Lovelies,

No rain here! Lisa, hopefully your rain comes only at night so your days can be outside. Our lower level is damp, but no standing water.

Today is:

** school with dd
** Call eye dr. for dd - she made the comment about not being able to see some print yesterday. Confused Time to check it out whether it's been a year or not!
** laundry x 5
** work in my craft room
** have dd look at Notgrass history samples online
** have dd look at RFWP literature samples online
** walk
** vacuum entire house
** spaghetti for dinner
** iron work clothes

Have a lovely day, all.

25yos, 23yos, 13 yod I guess I am old enough for adult children.

My stomach hurts, but I still choose joy! :-)

Morning! This week I am officially attempting potty training. I have been so laid-back about it, because I didn't want the stress I had with the first two kids. I have waited until he was completely ready and he's been at the point for quite a while. He will go sometimes, but not all the time. But, I haven't had time to stay home and let him practice consistency. So, I have no plans to leave the house until Wednesday evening. That should give him some time to practice and I'll just have to be extra careful to remind him for a few weeks.

I do have plenty to do around here to keep myself busy the next few days. I have housework, my VA work, and co-op stuff.

Potty train
Call Culver's about car wash
Call pedi about medical records for DS's camp
Text pastor about setting up a meeting
Email moms of high schoolers about classes
Clean in master bedroom
Phone call with my client

Potty train
Contact people who have expressed interest in joining the co-op
Clean my closet
Jack's make-up soccer game

Potty train
Clean laundry room
Church (work in nursery)

Meet board to tour possible locations for next year
Start cleaning for Memorial Day cook-out
Get new sand for sandbox

Meet old co-op director to get money for the treasurer
Meet my BFF at a park
Start cleaning for Memorial Day cook-out

Jack's last soccer game

OK, so it's been nearly six months since many of you purchased an Instant Pot during the Black Friday sales.

I'd like your reviews - I hear a lot of love for these Instant Pots, but two things I really, really want to know are:

1) Has this been the workhorse that you dreamed it would be? Has it earned a permanent space on the countertop?

2) How many times a week are you using the Instant Pot? Are you using it more mainly meal-by-meal, or have you incorporated it into any weekly menu prepping?

Yes, it is a workhorse, even though I don't use it as much as larger families, because there are only two of us living here. Smile It has a definite home (not counterspace, because I store it elsewhere, lol).

I use it at least once a week, sometimes more. I try to plan meals around it, in addition things like cooking 24 eggs at a time for deviled eggs for a crowd, or four cheesecakes in two days for a special event.

Interesting that you mention cooking for such a small crowd...that's partly what I'm curious about...if it would pay for itself with a small family. If it can help meal prep for the week, it would be more valuable to me than quickening dinner now and then.

"Clutter" ... The word "decluttering" brings to my mind the image of boxes and bags being dumped out of a house. The house sighs with relief! Getting rid of the junk is a good first step.
