Routine Ramblings of an Occasionally Interesting Housewife

Evening Check-In

Tigger didn't know where his glasses were (he wore his backup glasses to school today), so we didn't go to the optician. They were in my car. Sigh.

I made a menu plan for the week:

  • Tuesday: Fish fillets
  • Wednesday: Sweet & Sour Ham Balls
  • Thursday: Enchiladas
  • Friday: Ham & Swiss Casserole
The bulk of the grocery shopping was car-snacks for the trip.

The car is already cleared out, and ready to go to the carwash tomorrow. It's been ages since I've had it vacuumed out; I've been running it through the express wash over the winter.

We're bringing a medium cooler, and so far two canvas bags of car snacks. Two laptops, two gameboys, two PDAs, a portable DVD player and a digital camera. I think that covers all the electronics.

Laundry's going quickly. Next time the dryer buzzes, I'll pick out handwash items that I want for the trip. After that load, I'll wash work towels. I'll wash the sweaters and shirts last, because both are micro-loads.

Flar hadn't called around to figure out where to buy long boards yet, so that's been pushed further back in the week. I took cleaning the bathroom out of this week altogether; I think the outside stuff needs priority, and then I'll be packing. I go nuts with packing, and prefer having days to get it done.

The list:

    Monday - Pink
    Tuesday - Orange
    Wednesday - Yellow
    Thursday - Green
    Friday - Blue
    The Weekend - Purple
