Goals – one accomplished


Okay, so I am seriously not the most organized person, and most of you know that.  I truly am horrible.  And, my procrastination on top of that is not a great combination!

Anyways, I have accomplished one goal on my mission to become organized and what is that goal?

Well, it was to keep up and stick with my weekly menu planning!

This was actually something I tried before, but I did a monthly one and hated it and I am sure that is why I did not stick with it.  but, now I am just on a weekly one and loving it.  The kids and even hubby enjoy getting involved in picking what we will be having for the week.  It is so nice knowing what you will be making, and what kind of meat to take out ahead of time.

Doing this also helps me buy only the things I need at the store to finish a meal and since I work full-time, if I need to prepare something the night before so we can eat at a descent time the next day, I will know!

Do you do menu planning?

If not and you want to get started, check out how HERE!

Now, onto my next Goal of organization……. Papers!

Losing It

Yup!  I swear I am losin it!

Have you ever heard that song “There coming to take me away haha! They’re coming to take me away ho ho! Hee Hee Ha Ha – To the Funny Farm”   – yup, this is my song right now!

I have been so forgetful, I use to be good at keeping up with  my bills and other things I needed to deliver/send out and I have been horrible lately!

I would blame it on old age, and even tho I seriously consider 30 being old, I know it really is not. 

I guess I am just simply falling apart.  I just cannot seem to keep up with my life anymore.  My kids are growing faster than I want them to, laundry builds up faster than I want that to – and I SWEAR laundry breeds like bunnies!!

I try and try to keep up but it all seems to slip through my fingers!


I need a vacation!  The Bahamas sound nice right now, especially after the first snow storm of the year this morning – that was ROUGH!

But, that is the joy we get when living in North Dakota – HA!

Who wants to join me at the funny farm??

Help Disabled Children with Balloons!

OMG!! How cute is this dino balloon?  My son would be in heaven if he got this! 

I work with handicapped individuals and have been for an accumulative of about 9 years and I have never had a job I loved more than working with them.  I have learned so much with and through them.  They have touched my heart in so many ways, it is beyond words.  I have learned so much, and I know I will treasure them forever!

What is awesome is that My Own Pet Balloons is selling their awesome balloons and donating $5 from each balloon to Canines For Disabled Kids.  Now, I do not work with children.  The individuals I work with range from Age 20 to 80, and I love every minute of it.  But, every individual (young & old) could use the help.

Anyways,  Since 1998, CDK has sponsored over 130 assistance dogs and provided services to more than 15,000 individuals.

I am lovin the Frog Balloon!

All balloons are $15, which is not bad!  You will receive it in the mael, FLAT.  You can pretty much take these to any florist or even dollar store and get these filled for free.  and, once they go flat, the can be filled again!!

What is so cool about these is that they “walk” as well!

The inflated balloon animals have specially designed feet that serve as weights to keep the pets grounded so they can be “walked” with the attached ribbon leash, encouraging fun, creative play.

Select from: Kitty Cat, Dachshund, Pot Bellied Pig, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Golden Retriever, Pony, Bunny Pink, Bunny Purple, Bunny White, Chicken, Corgi Dog, Holstein Cow, Domestic Duck, Purple Elephant, Fawn, Tree Frog, Ladybug, Miniature Dachshund, Panda, Penguin, Pointer, Shetland Pony, Pug, Reindeer, Shiba-Inu Dog, St. Bernard, Supersaurus, Fox Terrier Dog, Desert Tortoise, Toy Poodle
