Saturday: Breakfast will be Belgian Waffles with homemade blueberry sauce

What's on your menu?  Thanks to the readers who helped me through my "lack of menu inspiration" last week!  We made it through without a menu... but it is SO much easier to have a plan!

Speaking of having a plan... I'll be rejoining my friend the FlyLady for some much needed housekeeping scheduling and advice.  I need to get back on her wonderful schedule.  I was a terrible housekeeper when I first got married 6 years ago and have drastically improved, and FlyLady is part of what made me successful.  But lately, I can barely scrape by with my housework--I'm just keeping my head above water.  Our home is not a pigsty by any stretch of the imagination, but I definitely have higher standards than I have been achieving.  (Toddlers are not conducive to a neat home, I'm convinced!) 

You better believe I'll be starting the week with my Home Blessing Hour!  Anyone care to join me?

Are there any other FlyLady success stories out there?  And any advice on "keeping up" with the house?


  1. There aren't many young women with a part time job, a toddler and a successful blog. You can do everything, but it's very difficult to do everything well. I'm sure fly lady will lend a hand, and so will my son. LY

  2. THere are days when my saving grace is I can do anything for 2 minutes and housework done incorrectly still blesses my family. Yeah I am a long way from "there" but its getting back to it. Good Luck!

  3. Just wanted to tell you how much I am LOVING your blog!! You are doing a great job and have inspired me to do some simplifying around my own home. Also, I am really loving the FlyLady site your shared!! Think I will join you with the "Home Blessing Hour"!

  4. yes! I need to do HBH today too! I love how FLYlady helps you get rid of that overwhelming feeling. I love a shiny sink too - although mine is not shiny right now. I also love her "stop living in C.H.A.O.S. -Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome"

  5. I made a coleslaw tonight that was simliar to the cabbage salad you served.
    I shredded cabbage, half a head
    added 1/2 c sunflower seeds
    1 pkg any flavor Raman noodles, crumbled, set seansoning aside
    1 carrot, shredded
    4 oz red wine vinegar
    2 oz balsamlic vinegar
    1/4 c olive oil
    1/4 splenda
    seasoning pkg from noodles
    salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste

    Mix it all together. Very good, my daughter who is 11 loves it and eat three servings.
