Weekend Prep, January 15th

Yesterday was great.  I spent time on my household notebook… updated our budget page, made my own daily plan page (because the daily docket that I used had quite a bit on it that didn’t apply to me), and updated my routine page (to reflect the changes that I made to my week!).

I normally do prep on Saturdays, but Robert is working this weekend, so I decided to take the kids out to a movie and dinner yesterday.  It was a blast!  I’m so glad I did.

After the movie (Sing!), we went to Chili’s.  I had a fantastic dinner of ribs with a dry rub, steamed broccoli, salad, and a mini dessert (all for $10!).

I went to HEB and decided to stock up on coffee because it is only $2.98 each right now!  And I got another 12 pack of La Croix and HEB Coke Zero.  I am set until next paycheck!  I shouldn’t have to buy anything else!

I updated my variable budget log when I got home.  I think I’m going to move some grocery money over to misc because I won’t spend all of that grocery money and have some more misc things coming up.

Since we went to town yesterday, we aren’t going to church today (I can’t afford to drive to town any more than I do… it’s about $20-25 every time).  We will go next week!

Because we were in town yesterday, I prepped for the week today!

I woke up super early and couldn’t go back to sleep, so I spent some time doing the dishes and cleaning the living area.  I also got the veggies out to wash and cut for the next two weeks (yes, they mostly last that long in containers in the fridge).

After that, I planned my day.

I spent time in the word and prayed in my prayer journal.

After most of my family woke up, I got to work.

I prepped by cutting veggies (and strawberries), (Robert) made Kodiak power cakes (pancakes made with whole grains and protein… I was going to make Green Smoothie Power Cakes but their website is all messed up!), I made instant pot “boiled eggs, and I baked whole wheat bread.  I also made breakfast taco filling.

I also pulled some banana chocolate chip power cake muffins out of the freezer for the week (they are great for on the road as snacks and a quick breakfast).

I made homemade Greek yogurt (best batch yet… nice and thick!) during the week this time around, and we still have some homemade granola.

The kids “cleaned” their rooms (they don’t do the best job, but I’m learning to let it go) while I prepped, and Ethan cleaned their bathroom for a $1 :-).

I organized our fridge a little bit to fit all of my prepped foods!

Next I will do a little bit of work on my blog, clean our bathroom, clean the floors, and make my bed.  I ended up missing online AA because I was too busy.  Prepping took longer than I planned (well, I also organized the fridge and I hadn’t planned on doing that).  It’s okay.  My goal is AA in town twice a week and online AA twice a week!

I will continue working on laundry until it is caught up.

Dinner will be fish tacos and homemade coleslaw.  Looking forward to it!
