    @sassy ashly- Cooler temps today for sure! What a change!
    The good thing is the load of laundry I hung to dry yesterday is dry so I was able to put on yoga pants I washed yesterday!

    Just took out pasta sauce and cooked ground beef from the freezer. Feels like a pasta kind of night. (and great for using up something from the freezer!)
    Will use the I'taliano loaf of bread my BIL gave me and make Garlic bread with cheese to go with it. (have a bit of garlic butter I made awhile ago to use up)

    Today- Put away all the clean laundry.
    Putter in the spare room- Put the last of DS's stuff in a box for him to deal with. Take down the posters. Mud the holes.

    Have a great day everyone!

    Productive morning.

    Meal plan is done, not 100% sure we will stick with it, I did struggle a bit with it. A lot of good meals but just worried if things get busy some meals won't happen but such is life. Here is my plan:
    *Homemade Pizza with Side Salad
    *Baked Lemon Chicken with Rice & Veggies
    *Slow Cooker Pepper Steak with Rice
    *Eggroll in a bowl with Rice
    *Chicken Parm with Pasta and Salad
    *Instant Pot Alfredo with Chicken and Veg
    *Taco Pie with Salad
    *Pork Chops with Baked Mushroom Rice & Veggies
    *Homemade Burgers with Air Fryer Fries & Salad
    *Balsamic Chicken with Mashed Potatoes & Veggies

    A lot of salads but I have romaine to use up, plus some lemons and cooked pasta.

    No idea what tonight's dinner will be.

    Went down the basement and moved furniture around. Most of the shelves are now accessible in the basement so if Mom wants to move stuff from the main floor down to the basement we can. All of the shelves still need to be organized but that is a project for another day.

    Another reason to move the furniture was, it was blocking the closet which was where we found some mold after the flood. I did not empty the closet but moved some stuff around and I do not see anymore mold, good sign.

    Question:
    For anyone using a dehumidifier, how often do you have to empty it?

    In the summer and I think it is because of the humidity. On the hot humid days we have to empty it about every 24 hours. Mom is saying it is because we have another leak but I cannot find any water in the basement.
    2022 is going to be my year, the year I find organization in my life and the year I focus on myself,
    follow along as tackle day to day life and whatever else 2021 throws at me:

    Last night I realized that my one email account was having password trouble and wouldnít load my new emails. I fixed the issue and scrolled through my recently loaded emails. I won the adult reading challenge this summer at our public library and Iím supposed to pick up my prize. Oops. I was there yesterday afternoon (itís closed on Sundays until later in the month) and didnít know I had anything to pick up. Theyíd also like to take my pic for their Facebook page, if Iím ok with it. Nice little surprise. Hopefully they didnít pull another name and give them the prize, because they didnít call me after not hearing back from me.

    We are under an extreme heat advisory still.

    Itís my wedding anniversary today.

    Happy Anniversary Angela!


    Dropped DS off at work for 9am and then went to Walmart. Did my return. Picked up 2 toys for Christmas for niece and great niece.
    Picked up cheap coffee maker. It will pay for itself in a week.

    Picked up hamburger and sausage buns for $1.50 at Dollar Tree.

    Stopped in RCSS and was able to grab 4 more bottles of laundry detergent for $2.77!! Already put away and organized to use the older stuff 1st. I hadn't bought any in years and was getting down to my last few bottles and had picked one up last week on a deal so I could stay ahead of the game. So happy for this deal as I thought I would have been paying $$$ going forward.

    Now to get stuff done around the house!

    Took Mom down the basement, showed her what I did. she asked why I did it alone. Because if I asked for her help she would have taken over and moved it alone to not hurt me. But I was able to just slide the furniture across the floor with just a few bumps due to uneven tiles. Not to mention, I was not sure my plan would work because no, I did not measure first to make sure it would fit, I just went for it.

    Moved a bunch of stuff out of the closest, took a closer look, no mold. Super happy, if we need to rip out and replace the drywall that is something I would have had to hire someone to do it.

    Mom found some stuff she has been looking for it, it was buried behind the cabinet I moved.

    Still need to organize what we are keeping but that is a job for another weekend.

    I should have painted the wall before I moved the furniture but thought about it and just did not feel it. I have the paint.

    Not sure what Mom's plans are for today yet, she is not sure so may just go and get started in the kitchen.

    Thanks for the idea. I will make sure to take a whole chicken out this week for dinner one night...and then the next day I will make soup for DS! (since we have carrots ect) Having single servings for him will be perfect!

    My 8 year old niece likes those "surprise" toys (blind bags) I just watch for them on clearance. They had a bunch of different ones on for $1 each. And the LOL balls and a different type for $5. I bought some 5pk on clearance for $5. They also had tons of Paw Patrol stuff on clearance. And Fisher Price stuff reg $30-40 on for $9. I hope to check another Walmart our this week if I go to Costco. Check out your toy section.. never know what you will find!
