Moving The Blog!

Good morning!

I’ve switched to a different blogging platform! I’m still using the same name but it is a different address. And for those of you who subscribe to my posts, you’ll need to re-subscribe at the new location! I tried to figure out how to just change my whole subscriber list over but apparently I’m not as tech savvy as I thought I was, ha ha. 

You can find my current posts here The Unexpected Domestic 

if it looks familiar to some of y’all, that’s because it is! It’s my very first blog I had in like, 2012, and I have just decided I want to go back to using that again. I think it’s so fun and surprising that someone wants to read what I post and I love the excitement I get from finding out you’re reading about my life even though it’s pretty boring. 

Anyways, thanks for following along on here and I hope to decide to follow me to my new blog!

And the Kitchen is Clean!

Ugh. Well my kitchen is clean. But it’s like eleven o’clock.  Last summer I read  a post about building habits and the author would piggy back a task onto something that would happen no matter what.  For example, she wanted to start the habit of cleaning her kitchen and dishes every night. So she attached that task to her kids going to bed. Every night after her kids would go to sleep, she would go to her kitchen and clean up. Eventually the habit stuck. 

Sooo I decided I would do it too! I needed something to get into the habit that I just was awful at doing consistently. So every night after the kids go to bed I drag myself into the kitchen and clean it up. But it still hasn’t become second nature yet.

Wait, let me clarify, almost every night I go to the kitchen. If I skip a night, I always regret it the next morning when the kitchen is messy and I have to prepare the coffee when I wake up. Especially on the hitches when Kevin is gone, having the kitchen in order and ready for the next day makes such a difference.

But tonight, the kitchen is clean and my coffee is prepped! Yay.

Meal Plan No. 2

ok I have to do the kind of quickly because I just got out of the shower and I’m hiding in my room before Kevin realizes how long I’ve been back here! I didn’t post this on Sunday like I usually try to do so I’m just gonna start with Monday. 

Monday: Jambalaya with grilled potato cubes and roasted broccoli.

Tuesday: Spaghetti with baked green beans and potatoes halves

Wednesday: Leftovers

Thursday: Pancakes

Friday: Leftover Spaghetti (even though we will eat at church after the service)

Saturday: Crab Legs at the Beau Rivage! (This is for Adam’s birthday. Just because he moved away doesn’t mean we can’t still go out for his birthday!)

Goodness all of that sounds yummy! I don’t think I’ve mentioned this before but we eat sausage and eggs and biscuits practically every morning and then for lunch usually bagel bites or some kind of lunch meat!
