My Day to Organize and Plan

First off, I accidentally touched some milk this morning.  I am highly allergic and just touching a drop can set off a major reaction.  My eyes are swelling so I’m going to have to take some allergy medicine.

My husband is such a sweetheart that he spent the weekend doing a lot of the chores that I do on Mondays so today I don’t have to vacuum, wash clothes, dust, or clean the bathrooms.  I am such a blessed woman.  By the way, I sat in the chair and watched TV the whole time he was working.  He insisted.

Now to my day today. 

  1.  Since I haven’t managed to go grocery shopping and won’t go until tomorrow, I am going to plan our meals for the week.  I am going to write a grocery list (I usually have a list) and STICK to it (I never stick to it).
  2. I’m going to write out the budget for the middle of the month. DH and I will go over it tonight.
  3. I’m going to pay all the middle of the month bills.  I really think I can make a big payment on the car.
  4. I’m going to plan exactly what I will buy each person for Christmas.  I am going to make a detailed list with budget and stick to it.  I want to finish Christmas shopping in November and I haven’t even started yet.

Hopefully by the end of the day I will be able to update my debt paid off  totals.

  2. I didn’t realize anyone could be highly allergic to milk! Wow. I am really glad that you are Okay. 🙂

    And isn’t it wonderful to have a husband such as this? Mine does that for me at times, too.

    And it is really great that you two are working so hard to keep a budget! Fantastic!
