Engage 2010!

Christmas break could go on and on as far as I'm concerned. I love having no structure imposed on me. I also loved seeing my family.

But now we're back home. It's a new year. A new decade. And I do have a few goals.

I am trying to implement the monthly dinner plan. Over break I wrote out a list of dinners that the family will stomach to varying degrees. It was surprisingly long when I really looked at it. So this week has us eating enchiladas, chowder, bean burritos, spaghetti, pizza, tomato soup, and fish. We'll see if it works. Now I just have to find a store where the meat doesn't scare me.

Last year I wanted to simplify my life. This year my goal is to engage.
So, I'm picking the kids up from school so we have more daylight to play. I'm really trying to be active at church, not complain about J's calling or my calling for that matter. (Though I have very little to complain about as Jesse is the only member of the bishopric w/ kids they always give him a ride and have meetings before or after bedtime so he can put them to bed.)

And if you were wondering, it's still cold, there's still snow on the ground, and we kind of like it.


  1. I plan weekly meals. Never tried doing it for the whole month, sounds way too hard.

    If you ever need new food ideas this website is great

    it's not my favorite kind of food but it's stuff that's easy to make and Enzo likes.

    when is Mim's getting baptised? I have a present I want to send her.

  2. We're planning on Feb 13th for her baptism. I'll have to check out the site.
