What DIDN’T I tackle today (well, tonight)??  LOL!  I got a little behind in some of my everyday things, plus I wanted to do some other stuff before sis gets here tomorrow night.  It didn’t happen today as planned, since the little one is pushing teeth through and felt absolutely miserable.  So, after bedtime tonight, I went into overdrive… laundry, dishes, mopping all of the everyday things and some other stuff too.  I discovered that he decided to make his booster seat a little more personal did some art work on it (lots of beautiful red lines!).  Thankfully it all came off.  There are a few more things I want to do tomorrow, including painting the living room!!

This is going to be quick ~ the little one is cutting more molars I think… fever, sick, whiny, all that great stuff & I have a laundry list of stuff that I need to do before my sister arrives tomorrow night… including laundry and we found out the septic tank was starting to come unplugged so that explains the other issues we were having… and I feel like my hands are so full and I only have one youngin’, LOL! ~ and even though it is late, I still wanted to get the Menu Plan posted.  BTW, there is a possibility the new site could go live as early as this coming weekend!!

MONDAY: Spaghetti

TUESDAY: Grilled cheese sandwiches & soup

WEDNESDAY: Shredded BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

THURSDAY: My nephew flies in from England after being gone 2 years, so we’ll probably just grab something on the way to the airport…

FRIDAY: Undecided but probably something pretty simple, like breakfast for dinner, leftover BBQ Chicken, grilled cheese & soup, etc.

SATURDAY: Nephew’s Welcome Home Party, so will probably make the finger foods “dinner”, LOL!

SUNDAY: Another nephew is having a big family birthday party and guess what is on the menu?  More spaghetti!

For more Menu Plan Monday check it out @ Org Junkie!
