Momma’s Weekly Plan

weekly plan for moms

This year we are going try something new here at Mommacan.com.  Each Monday bright and early I will be posting my personal weekly plan, I will exclude my boring job stuff and choir director details, because they only apply to very few people’s lives and that would be silly.  But in a nut shell, I am sharing my weekly plan as a mom, organizer, wife, chief home operator, accountant, decorator, part-time maid and part-time chef.  Here is the catch!  I would love to hear about your plans for the week either in a comment with a link to your blog, on the Mommacan.com facebook page or even ( gasp) Google Plus if that floats your boat.  I truly believe that sharing our goals will help reach our goals, even if the sharing is just a tiny fragment of what we do each day!

Let’s Get Started:

Organize:  My office desktop has been a wreck for a couple of weeks not due to an ignored filled inbox and a things that simple need to be filed or put in their proper place. This week I am gong to tackle my desk and finish up my 3 Minutes Per Day Pantry Clean -up an Update.

Clean- I am pledging a 15 minute solid cleaning slot each day this week on top of my daily duties.  Sometimes, the idea of cleaning each room can seem overwhelming to me and I feel I can commit pretty readily to 15 minutes.  Who knows? I maybe be able to carve out more time as the week progress and this becomes a practice of love for my home and not an ugly chore on the TO DO list.

Cook- I am cooking all of the family meals this week excluding choir night.  It is a time sucker with busy after school schedules but eating at home with a planned meal list of healthy meats, vegetables and fruits is a healthier and more economical way to live.

Move- I have really kept up with my exercise plan since posting each Monday.  This week I am back to Curves for the Jillian Michaels’ work out twice this week, pone run on Tuesday night, walking every day and working on those push-ups.

Educate – This week we are requiring little Guy to practice his musical instruments 5 days a week or more for at least 10 minutes on each instrument.  It is not easy, he like every other little kid in the world, is overwhelmed by a system that has taken away the arts and created an uninspiring system of learning how to take a Big Test at the end of the year.  Okay, maybe not every school is like that, but all the public ones here seem to be these days.

Dream –  This week I am making a list for day trips that are within driving distance. I am thinking pretty hills early in the morning drenched the pinks and oranges of a California sunrise and whispering purples, reds and indigo blues of a beach sunset.  I am hoping to learn how to use my camera with a little help from a self-teaching guide and lots and lots of beginners luck.

Okay! It is your turn!  Anything planned for the week!  Are you a coupon clipper or saver? I am always thinking of starting this and would love to hear feedback on that subject?

The sky is the limit! It is a brand new week.
