Getting Organized

So those who know me...know that I am organized in my own little way but I never really feel like I have it all together. Yet, somehow, I am never late leaving the house for work, always come to work looking my best and the boy too always has clean clothes and lunch packed. I do nothing the night before, which has been recommended to me over and over again...but I simply can't stand eating a sandwich that has been sitting in the fridge all night...the bread gets soggy or something and it's just nasty, so therefore I can't send the boy to school with a sandwich (which is pretty much all he'll eat for lunch everyday) that has been in the fridge all night. I could set clothes out the night before...and sometimes think to do it...but most evenings I'm just mush from the full day I've had and I can't think about the next day!

But all of that is about to change!

Last night I made french onion soup from scratch...that we will eat for dinner tonight. It will be soooo nice to go home and just have to warm it up! Not to mention we can eat pretty much anytime...not the usual 6:30 (seeing as I'm not home until just after 5:00). Tonight I plan to prep tomorrow night's dinner and hopefully on the weekend I'll prep a few things for next week.

It's also my goal to try and tackle ALL of my laundry on the weekends...but man that sure will be alot of laundry! Realistically I can't see that lasting but it would be nice not to have to do a load every night of the week in order to have clean socks and undies! lol.

Spring must be just around the corner because I have this overwhelming urge to start purging at my house. I can't stand clutter and it seems like we have tons that we've accumulated over the Winter.

In other news....the boy has decided he likes to make up words. The boyfriend and I cracked up over this one this morning...

Geronabunga

My guess is...it's a mix of the 2 words Geronimo and Cowabunga...oh lordy did I come anywhere close to spelling those right??? lmao.

i am so unorganized... I am almost always late, I can never find anything, and as Jason likes to call me, I am the queen of procrastination!

We're purging our house too!! But only because we're moving!! I try to be organized but it doesn't work out too well.

I am so anal about being organized. I do pack lunches the night before, clothes and have done the making dinner the night before alot. I am getting into freezing things now.

That soup sounds delish! Can you send me some please? Thanks.

Oooh...I see your keeping track of your comments! Well, I don't like to be last so it's on now!! =)

LOL I was hoping that keeping track of my top commenters would get you all commenting more! Hope it works.

Heidi said...

Great, now I want french onion soup... Can you ship that?

Completely organized never works for me. If my place gets too clean/organized and I'm looking for one particular item, I can never remember for the life of me where I "filed" it away to. When it's too messy, I can't find anything either. I just can't win.

Yaya said...

Sounds like a good plan!

I do most of our laundry on weekends, and I do a lot of dinner prep stuff on the weekends for dinners in the beginning part of the week.

Great word lol.
I try to be organized, but I just can't seem to do it. Maybe I need a bigger house!

Toni said...

I would love to be more organized!!! I seriously hope that after Hunter and the baby on the way are a little older and I start working again, I will become better. Otherwise, we are doomed!!! lol

I think Geronabunga is a great word!
