Meal plans and the week ahead

I'm posting this a little early this week... so I can sleep in as late as possible tomorrow.  I've been battling a cold and really just need to sleep, I think.  So I figure I'll post now while I have a few minutes.  This is going to be a crazy week full of fun stuff!  Unfortunately, Kevin is traveling again, but hopefully the week passes by quickly.  We've got a lot of stuff to do to get ready for our trip to Arizona next week, plus lots of fun things. 

Tomorrow, we'll hopefully be heading to church.  We'll see how I feel in the morning.  We've got lots of cleaning to do tomorrow, too... last week ended up being a crazy week at work (the earliest I got home from work all week was 7:00pm... with it being 8:00/8:30 a couple of nights... it was a long week), so I didn't get nearly half of anything done that I wanted to accomplish.  Kevin leaves very early Monday morning for Virginia and Tennessee.  I'm off on Monday for MLK Jr. Day.  Carson and I have a lot of errands to run and I want to get the rest of the deeper cleaning done.  Tuesday through Thursday will hopefully be fairly low key... and I really hope I don't have to work too late.  Wednesday is the Governor's State of the State address, so I do expect longer days again, but I'm hoping I can at least leave on time and then plug in at home in the evening.  Friday is my flex day.  We have to pick up the milk and CSA order, then Carson and I are headed to Lowell to meet Auntie Sara for lunch. Then we'll probably go back to Saranac to hang out for a bit.  I'd also like to get to Adrian on Friday night so we can see my cousin, Allison, play hockey.  She plays for Finlandia University and this is her only game down state.  Hopefully we'll make it, as long as we're not in Saranac too long.  Kevin comes home late Friday night.  Saturday morning I am finally getting my hair done.  Its been soooo long since I got it done (November!!!) and it is driving me crazy!  I won't get too much of a change since I'm growing it out, but it will be nice to get it shaped up and the ends trimmed, plus some new color.  Then we're packing up and heading to Grand Rapids for another basketball game and dinner at my SIL's.  I also want to start packing some where in there... :)

Hope your week goes well with lots to do and Kevin gone. And hope you feel better soon! Rebecca has a cold too. No fun.

I was wondering about your hair but forgot to ask. It looked longer to me last Sat. I like it. Any reason for growing it out? Very funny that you say it's been a long time since you've had your hair cut...only 2 months :P I got mine cut last January :) I think I'll cut it again in March...only 14 months :)

Good luck packing.

It's been 11 weeks since I got my last cut/color... I normally get it done every 6-8 weeks! :) I'm ust growing it out for a change. I like the way I look better with short hair, though... but we'll see. I would love hair like Kim or Kourtney Kardashian... but I doubt i'll be patient enough to let it get that long. :) Plus, I know they have extensions to make theirs so pretty and full... and I will never be able to afford nice extensions!

Extensions gross me out! No way do I want fake hair or someone else's hair. I'm perefectly content with my fine, flat hair :P Good luck growing it out. I was just telling Justin (since we've been talking about budgets/spending)that I'm so cheap when it comes to hair maintenance (especially for a female). He spends way more than I do in a year! I get mine cut once a year for $30. And buy shampoo a few times a year. That's it :) He gets his cut once a month and buys more expensive shampoo than I do...and more often. Pretty funny.
