Would you get fired?

If, as keeper of your home, you had a boss watching over you, would you get fired? Are you doing your job to the best of your abilities? Or are you just doing enough to get by? How many "breaks" do you get during the day, or how long is your "lunch hour"? Do you take care of the tasks that need done in your workplace or do you look at certain tasks as not in your job description?

These are all questions we should ask ourselves as keeper of our homes. We have the most important job there is; taking care of our husband, our children and our homes. Are we really giving it the time and effort it deserves? I was thinking about this the other day and realized I was not treating my responsibility with as much respect as I would a "real job". Let's look at these questions individually.

Why I Stopped Making a Menu Plan

I used to make a menu plan, two weeks at a time to coincide with my grocery days.  But I stopped. 

I know, I know, everyone says to make a menu - it saves you time, it saves you money.

Well, it can but it can also waste a lot of time, for me anyway.

I would spend way too much time going through recipes, deciding what looked good and where it would fit in my week and then make my grocery list based on my menu. 

But do you know what happened, things would come up and we wouldn't follow the menu. Or a certain day and meal would come up and I just really wasn't in the mood for that particular meal that day. It eneded up being a waste of my time. 

So, I found a system that works much better for me.

What do you want?

I want to hear from you! 

I want my blog to be a place you can come to for encouragement, motivation or just to read and relax for a bit - 

but I don't want it to be just about me and what I am doing.

Although, that is a big part of this blog because I believe sharing my journey does encourage some of you.

In order to best serve you, I want to know what you want to read.

What interests you?

Do you want to hear about exercising?

Trim Healthy Mama?


My progress pictures and journey?

Or maybe it is housekeeping and raising my children?

Or something comopletely different?

I'm not an expert in any area, but I love to write and visit with you so I will do my best for you.

I truly want to hear from you, so please leave me a comment below or if it is easier for you, you can leave one on my facebook page:

Looking forward to hearing from all of you.

Blessings and have a fabulous day!
