Balance and a Menu Plan

So there are three different things that I struggle with 1) self-discipline, 2) patience, and 3) balance.

As you can tell, I keep popping on here and saying "don't worry, I've been busy but I'm back". Then something happens and I cannot find the balance. I started my Shaklee business and all my attention was thrown into Shaklee. When I first started blogging, all my energy was thrown into blogging. I am not very good at balancing multiple things and interests. So here is my whole-hearted attempt to begin balancing. To begin balancing, I am going to make a list of priorities and then go from there. I will begin with the most important and move down the list.

  1. My relationship with God
  2. My relationship with my husband
  3. My kids
  4. Making my home, family, and self healthy through exercise and nutrition
  5. My family
  6. My friends
  7. Becoming Debt Free
  8. My Shaklee business
  9. Gardening, Cleaning, and Cooking organically and frugally while being healthy
  10. Blogging- as a venting and information means

So as you can tell blogging is at the bottom of the list but it's in my top ten. So I will be doing my best to put a good healthy balance to all.

So now getting to my menu plan. Once again this week is going to be crazy. I am hoping that my friend Toni can come in from Indy and spend the weekend with us. So with that comes cleaning the house and preparing a menu that will feed multiple people. So I will be home cleaning and hopefully cooking and getting back on track with money and my home-making skills. So here goes the menu...

Monday: Hamburgers with Oven fries

Tuesday: Bourban Chicken with Rice

Wednesday: Church

Thursday: Pork with carrots and green beans

Friday: Sloppy Joes with Oven fries

Saturday: Chicken enchiladas with spanish rice, tortilla chips, and salsa

Sunday: Roast with potatoes and carrots

So there you have it... I nice little menu plan and a plan to get back on track beginning this week. How about you? Are you trying to regain momentum in your home? Are you trying to regain balance in your life and family? Have any tips and ideas? Leave comments- I would love to hear! For more menu plans head on over to Organized Junkie.

Yes, balancing one's life is difficult for me too. I have to set time aside for blogging.
I hope you and your family had a very nice Memorial Day.
Happy MPM.
