Photos and "to do" list....

While I am sitting here at the repair shop (my truck needs new ball joints) I thought I would go ahead and do a post (wow....two in two days!) since I am going to be here for several hours.

How many of you are a "list" type of person?? Well, I am....I love lists! It is probably the only thing that keeps me sane and on task....we have so much going on in our daily life that if I do not make a "to do" list for the week (I usually do this after I do our menu on Sunday) something gets forgotten. I bought a little notebook w/3 sections and labeled one of the sections "to do". Whenever I leave the house to go run errands, I take my notebook with me and mark off each item as it is completed.This weeks list consist of 12 things....between yesterday and today I have managed to get 4 things marked off....it's a start. Tell me what you use for your "to do" list??

Here are a few pics of the girls and my nephew at Old McDonalds farm from last week:
















Hope everyone has a GREAT day!!!

PS. If you are wondering what the deal is with the color of the some of the pics (some being brighter than the others)....the brighter ones are the ones that I edited with the photo application on my new computer.....

McKay Menu Monday

Okay, I know it has been a LONG time since I have postd, but we have been extremely busy. I promise to try to do better. I am going to try to do another post tonight and post some pics of the girls and what they have been up to. Anyway, in regards to the title of this post, I have been thinking about doing this for a while but just have not done it. I have seen on other blogs where each Monday they do a "Menu Monday" post and list the things that they will be having for dinner each week. I get sooooo tired of cooking the same thing over and over again. I have gotten some good ideas off of these posts so I thought I would start mine this week. I made up my menu for the week earlier today and went to the grocery store and got all of the necessary stuff. I have been doing this or a while (making out a menu for the week) and it makes life soooo much easier when I know what I am going to cook and I know that I have the ingredients already. I usually try to do it on Sunday for the next week and that way I can go to the store on Monday and be done. So, without further ado....here is our menu for this week:

Monday: fried pork chops, homemade mac & cheese, green beans, rice & gravy

Tuesday: taco roll & spanish rice

Wednesday: lasagna & garlic bread

Thursday: hamburger meat/rotels/rice, shells and cheese (or homemade mac/chz)....we have softball practice this night so it has to be something quick and easy

Friday: not sure about this night...probably Subway since Ry has a softball game

Sat: roast w/potatoes, rice, green beans

Sun: leftover roast (Ry has a ball tournament all day)

So there you have it....our menu for this week.....done!

Oh, one more thing.....I have to let you know that I have the absolute best husband in the world....he took me to the store the other night and bought me this wonderful new device that I am typing this post on.....a MACBOOK PRO!!! I LOVE it!!! Now I just have to figure out all the little ins and outs to it....if any of you have one and can offer any words of wisdom, believe me, they would be greatly appreciated!

Well, time to get off of here and go get the girls from school...they went back today after being off for a week for Spring Break.
