It's a Tuesday, Monday Kind of Thing

I have decided I really hate making a weekly to-do list on Mondays, so I am going to have mine on Tuesdays.  It gives me Monday to sort out the kinks left over from the weekend, and also see what need my folks might have for the week without having to think about what I have planned. I truly believe I am better doing this late Monday night when I actually have all the parts of the week in order.  From now on anything you see as a Tuesday list really
happened in the wee hours before I go to sleep Monday.

What I planned and what really happened

Meal 1:  Paleo chicken "fingers", romaine/mandarin orange salad, squash, asparagus
Meal 2:  Paleo stuffed bell peppers, salad, baked sweet potatoes
Meal 3:  Crock pot chicken in spicy mustard sauce, broccoli, waldorf salad
Meal 4:  Grilled chicken, grilled onions, sauteed mushrooms, tomato and cuke salad, green beans
Meal 5:  Steak, sweet potato oven"fries", tossed salad, brussels sprouts
Meal 6:  Gathering the fragments (leftovers) slaw or salad
Meal 7: Eat out

chicken fingers, squash. romain/mandarin salad/ grilled asparagus
smoked sausage with broccoli cauliflower carrots and onions
steak baked potato mixed greens salad
pork chop vegetable medley with steamed apple slices
Dinner out
leftover smoked sausage with sweet potato pancakes
Taco bell!?!?!?!

To be honest TheHub left for a golf/business meeting and will not be home until Wednesday night, so I am just eating whatever I feel like eating, hence the Taco Bell drive through.  I had decided to have a Game of Thrones theme meal Sunday night, but got slammed with a huge case of indifference. Instead I watched GOT while drinking tea.  After it was over there was no point in cooking, much less cooking a theme meal, so I hit the drive through.  Since Taco Bell was the only non hamburger joint still open it won by default.

I am still using "Finish" as my word of the week.  Somethings are completely done, some are still in progress and I have none nothing more than thinking about washing the living room, foyer, and dining room walls.  I am deluding myself by claiming I am going to wait until the pollen is completely through falling before I was them. (Has nothing to do with just not wanting to do it, right?)

In addition to delaying certain chores, I am slightly ADD.  In the middle of one chore I will decide to randomly go clean the freezer, or reorganize the butler's pantry.  I have been paying more attention to this habit and am adding another F word..."Focus".  I hope it will work because my bedroom is completely torn apart in various stages of deep cleaning and it really need to be completed today.

Now I am off to the bedroom to tackle the half done chores, I just hope I don't see anything shiny on the way!

p.s. and Rats!  I forgot to create some menu I will not follow:

Tonight, something with leftover shredded chicken (no clue what but it is thawed so I have to use it)

Pork tenderloin with coleslaw, tomatoes, and riced cauliflower

Weird paleo pizza stuffed bell peppers, tossed salad, carrots, and some other vegetable

Stir fry chicken with broccoli, carrots and mushrooms

Grilled chicken, cole slaw, green beans, grilled fruits

Grilled steak, baked sweet potato, sauteed brussels sprouts, tossed salad

Paleo Buffalo "wings" coleslaw, fakin potato salad made with cauliflower


  1. I totally understand that sometimes after you help your parents, there's just not the energy to focus on lists. You just do what you can do and don't worry about the rest. What do you get at Taco Bell? I haven't been in a long time but I drive by one almost every day.

  2. All their hype is wasted on me, I just got a couple of tacos.
