Manic Monday

Manic Mondays are when I let you know what plans I have for the week.  Some weeks I may be very busy where other weeks there may not be any plans.  Since I now have two little ones to take care of I am going to post weekly goals for myself to try to hold myself accountable.  I have also decided to do a quick recap of what we actually did versus what I thought we were going to do.

This Week

My Weekly Goals-I would love to be able to get all of the desserts I am making done by Friday afternoon for Christmas Eve.  I have a list of desserts I would like to get made, but am not sure I will get it all done.

Monday-Make Buckeyes and Coconut Bon Bons.  We are going to May’s house for dinner and then to drop off our couches to my sister’s.

Tuesday-Decorate sugar cut out cookies.  We have a day full of errands to do and B has some of his own to do after work.  The kids and I are going to get S’s 7 year pics done in the morning and then run to Kohl’s for B’s aunts Xmas gift and then to Target to get some red Santa bags.  I am going to try to decorate cookies when P goes down for her nap.  B has to pick up our new couch and chair after work.


Wednesday-Make fudge, marshmallows, and puppy chow.  S has his well check doctor visit in the morning.  Afterward he is going to spend the day with Grandma G and Grandpa Bob.  P is staying with May while I take S to the docs to try and prevent her from getting sick.   P and I are going to hang out at home like we do during the day while S is at school.  I think P will enjoy the break and normalcy for one day.  I am going to attempt to have P help me wrap all the presents.

Thursday-Make pie crust and start on either the sweet potato pie or apple pies.  The kids and I will hang out at home during the day and after P’s nap both kids had dentist appointments.  Afterward we will stop at Costco on the way home to pick up pics.

Friday-Finish up any desserts not done.  I will probably have to make some pies if not all of them in the morning.  After P’s nap we are going to roller skate at Ohio Skate.  It is a free day for P-burg students.  I love skating and B got a new pair of rollerblades so he does not have to use tape and zip ties to keep his together.  S and P love it just as much and we plan on skating until they are both done.  We may even drive separate in case one wants to leave earlier than the other.

Saturday-Today is Christmas Eve.  This is my favorite day of the Christmas holiday.  We will wake up in the morning and the kids will open there presents from B and me.  We have done this since S was a baby.  That way we can work around B’s work schedule and he still gets to enjoy Christmas with the kids.  Santa still comes Christmas morning no matter what (he only brings one gift and the stocking treats).  After we do presents I am running over to my dad’s with all of the desserts so I don’t have to try to take them later with all the kids and presents.  I will come home and get ready to go back to my dad’s.  All of this will be done by noon.  P is going to skip her nap which will not happen and she will fall asleep at some point even if that is in the car ride home (it is only 3 minutes).  We usually have about 30 minutes at home before we go to B’s side of the family.  If we haven’t already done so in the morning we delivery any baked goods we made for the neighbors.  We will then meetup with B’s side of the family around 5ish.  We will have dinner, exchange gifts, etc.  The kids will be home and hopefully in bed no later than 10pm.  I will attempt to get the kids asleep by 10pm so that the big guy can come.

Sunday-Christmas Morning…..The kids will wake up and open gifts from Santa.  B will probably make breakfast for the kids and then we will hang out at home for the day.  I am not sure what exactly we will do after naptime.  B and I haven’t had a chance to talk about it yet.

Last Week Recap…..I will update this but wanted to get the plans for this week posted so B knows what is going on!

Last Week

Weekly Goal-This week I need to get everything ready for S’s Christmas party at school on Thursday.  I volunteered to do a bunch of stuff for it.  (I also volunteered May and B to help me!)

Monday-We are just hanging out at home today.  I am going to try to run to Target to return a few items if I get a chance.  We got a ton of snow so I am not sure is S is going to have school.  If not we are going to try to have the neighbor boys down to play.

Tuesday-P’s playdate got switched to Tuesdays, so we are going to that in the morning and S has catechism class after school.  After catechism the kids are going to make clay ornaments at May’s house for Christmas.

Wednesday-Today is going to be busy.  B is working so Grandma G is coming over to watch the kids so I can go do a painting with my sister for her birthday.  I have to get everything ready for S’s Christmas party tomorrow at school.  Hopefully I can get this all done during the day so I don’t have to stay up late and get it done when I get home from the painting class.  I have to make a ton of frosting, cut out hearts, and more.

Thursday-I need to finish up getting anything ready for the party that I didn’t already.  I have S’s party in the afternoon while P is taking her nap.  S is either going to ride the bus home or go home with me.  It all is going to depend on whether the kids make a huge mess decorating cookies during the party.  The kids and I need to pick up my niece later from school.

Friday-S starts his winter break so it is the beginning of a long three weeks!  I am going to do my best to get S’s 7 year old pics done before P’s nap.  My niece is turning the big 1-8!  I remember the day she was born and cannot believe she is going to be 18.  She was the first to make me an aunt and I have worn that name proudly!

Saturday-As of now we don’t have plans but being so close to Christmas I am sure it will change and something will come up.

Sunday-It is my sister’s birthday so we are going to do the Lights Before Christmas at the zoo in the evening.  S has been asking to go and P loves lights so she is going to really enjoy it.

Disclaimer: I have never claimed to be any great writer. So any mistakes that are made are my fault. Sometimes I mix up names B, S, and P, but I think you can figure out who I am talking about. If you find any grammatical errors just fix it in your mind so it sounds right.
