The Weekend Is Coming (I Think?)!

I might actually have a weekend at home this weekend. Or so I thought until I looked at the schedule! My two oldest girls are playing in a volleyball tournament in Belmond Saturday and are watching/trying out for the Iowa All-State Dance Team on Sunday in Ames. And I will be at both.

Admittedly, I am gone some weekends by my own decision. As a single parent, some time to myself helps to clear my head once in a while and refresh me. In turn, this gives my kids a momma who can happily focus even more on them.

Even with the busyness of this weekend, I need to get caught up and get some things done!

The list includes:
1. Make out the monthly grocery list
2. Make my own "instant" oatmeal packets (I haven't tried this yet, but I am looking forward to it!)
3. Can the rest of the pears into something, probably pear butter
4. Pick apples if I have any
5. Weed & mulch strawberries. Replant the runners if necessary.
6. Make more sweet tea.
7. Make granola and granola bars
8. Plan meals for next week
9. Clean out refrigerator
10. Get the metal shelves from the barn to the basement for more food storage

Those things almost have to be done. These are things I would also like to get done, but I won't be too crushed if I don't:
11. Inventory freezers (I am a little lost as to how much I have and what I have)
12. Clean front entry and declutter it
13. Clean kitchen and declutter it
14. Work on Jordan's ceiling fan
15. Declutter more in other parts of the house

Whew! I feel better having lists. I feel organized and less cluttered in my mind. Hopefully I will keep a good attitude and be motivated to get it done!

What does your weekend list look like?

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!


  1. You are totally ambitious! Good luck on completely the most important things. I know the feeling of getting it all out of my head and onto paper. It is a really good feeling--being in control. I so admire you and all you do. Keep up the good work.

10 Preparedness Items You Should Be Buying Every Month

As crazy as it seems, some people make prepping harder than it has to be. Learning skills can be hard, but the end rewards are so worth it. The work can be hard, but the pay off is that jobs get done and you have accomplished something for the future. However...preppers still need stuff. We can produce a lot of our own things and survive just fine. We still need the items that will make survival easier now and, heaven forbid, if anything bad happens. We need things to keep our lifestyle simpler and easier if something happens. Over the eight years or so that I have been prepping, I have some things that I buy almost every month. Some months when the budget is tight, I might not purchase any of these. Then I appreciate having these things on hand! Below is my list of things I buy every month. I don't make one big trip and buy all these things in one trip. I add them to my cart at the grocery store, department store, online shopping, and whatnot. I spend a little bit every s

10 Non-Perishable Food Preps You Should Be Buying Every Month

New preppers wonder what they should be buying for their preps every month. More experienced preppers wonder what holes they should be plugging in their food storage to be better prepared. We all know we should be constantly adding and rotating our food storage every month in order to have a good supply. Since I have written the 10 Preparedness Items You Should Be Buying Every Month  and Top Ten Items You Need For Your Food Storage , I have found my preparedness mindset changing a little bit. I think they are things you should be buying every month that are perishable items and non-perishable items. This list will concentrate on the non-perishable items because those are the ones most important to your food storage. To explain what I have included on this list, I will give you the criteria. I am making this list as basic as possible. Meaning that you can go to the grocery store and buy these items right off the shelf which means the items are shelf-stable. They will not expire o
