Susie Homemaker

I will admit that Justin is a way better at chores than I am. Today though, I feel like I've done a pretty good job! So far, by 2:30 I have:
-done a load of laundry (I would have done more but we're out of detergent so J is getting some after his haircut)
-went through our pantry, cabinets, and fridge to organize and dispose of nastiness (this was a group project and I have to say it was a fun activity together)
-baked a loaf of bread
-made some dip with light stuff to make it healthier than regular
-I also currently have lunch for this week cooking in the crock pot
-other little picking up and orgainizing (mostly dirty laundry!)

Right now I'm taking a break and having lunch and watching a DVR'd episode of 30 minute meals (Love Rachael Ray). Speaking of lunch, I have been hooked on mini stoned wheat thins, with laughing cow garlic and herb light cheese and turkey pepperoni. Kinda weird but so so good!

Other than that I'm going to fold Justin's laundry (he hates doing that) and continue mine. Other fun activities may include running the dishwasher and organizing my bedroom. Am I wild and crazy or what??

I've been meaning to make a list of goals for 2008 so I'll put down a few:
-to not go crazy while planning my wedding and never forget the real reason we're doing it
-to eat healthier (I'm thinking weight watchers) so I look awesome in my dress
-to blog more often, and on that note, be better at keeping in touch with my friends
-to be a better girlfriend and wife to Justin (see above sucking at chores!)
-to be sure that everyone knows how much I appreciate them (I already do pretty well at this)
-to live a more minimalist life, I have WAY more than I need and stuff is great but can really be stressful!
-tying in with the last one, to be better with finances so that I can get a new car (mine is threatening to quit on me!) and save to buy a townhouse

I hope everyone is doing well and had a fabulous holiday!

Very productive indeed! :) I love RR too, minus her sayings. I really hate most of them.

Oh yeah, good call on the sayings. She's super cheesy but I would love to cook with her!

Wow, very productive. My secret to being "Susie homemaker" is to get on a chore schedule. There is nothing sexy or appealing about a chore schedule but it keeps things running smoothly around here!

Can't wait to see you soon!
