Today has been a day of cleaning. I am trying to get all three of the bathrooms cleaned. I hate doing toilets, but I hate cleaning our shower more than anything. So, it doesn't get done very ofter, therefore it usually takes a lot of scrubbing. Right now I smell like every cleaning product that I have in the house. I needed a break, so I decided to blog.
Brian finally got the boarder down that was in Miss K's bathroom. Guess we will plan on painting tomorrow. Then I will get the monkey prints hung up and the wall words on the wall and mirror and we will be done. Well, done until I decide to change it again. Honestly, I am hoping that we will move before it is time to redo her bathroom again.
So, I have a question. I am really trying to get better about cooking dinner every night. We eat out too much and I need that to change. So, I made out a menu for the week. I had the hardest time coming up with 7 meals that aren't the same that we had last week. Once I tried to do a two week menu and that was a joke. Here is my menu for the week...
Saturday - steaks, potatoes & corn
Sunday - chicken pot pie
Monday - turkey tenderloin, homemade mac 'n cheese, green beans
Tuesday - salmon, rice, mixed veggies
Wednesday - Pasta Milano
Thursday - Pampered Chef party
Friday - Mexican casserole
Saturday -grilled chicken sandwiches, baked beans
I've got a couple of other things that I usually do also. I do chicken enchiladas, spaghetti, chicken spaghetti, and shrimp & pepper pasta. Lots of pastas. I need some new recipes. I checked out two Rachael Ray cookbooks and I'm sorry, but there was maybe one recipe from each one that I would actually make. And her 30 minute meals...nothing. So, if you have a recipe that you and your family love, please send it to me. Or, if you have a favorite recipe book, tell me which one. I am desperate for some new ideas! And remember...I've got an almost 3 year old, so nothing too off the wall.
Now...let's talk about Blockbuster. When we were living in Michigan during Brian's temp assignment, I went signed up for that Blockbuster Total Access. $9.99 a month for one movie at a time and you would return the movie to the store and get a free movie each time...unlimited! Well, for a number of months we weren't watching movies and it was just a waste of money so I cancelled it. Well, this past month I've rented a number of different movies for Miss K to watch. So, I thought I would reactivate my Total Access account. The same plan that I originally had for $9.99 is now $21.99! That is just totally nuts! I can get a plan for $11.99 that is one video at a time in the mail and you can return it instore twice a month for a free movie. That is just nuts! I should have never cancelled my account to begin with. Can't decide what I am going to do.
Well, I need to start my baked potatoes and get back to cleaning. Blog ya later!
