Here are a few things that I have been planning on doing/changing so that our days run as smoothly as possible when I start back to work:
- Clothes: have our clothes picked out for the week and iron them if necessary Sunday night - hang in specific place in closet (this is mostly for me because I tend to make a mess and take lots of time if I don't already know what I am going to wear)
- Morning Routine: I will take my shower at night so that I can get ready quicker in the morning. Rusty will start getting up when I do to go ahead and get completely ready so he can take care of the baby while I am getting ready.
- House: try not to get behind on laundry or if I do, do it on Saturday or Sunday when Hudson is taking a nap. I've also toyed with someone coming to clean every other week... mop, do bathrooms, etc. Still haven't decided yet. We will see on that one. We are friends with another married couple that SWEAR it is worth every penny!!
- Cooking: maybe make a casserole on Sunday, freeze it, and eat it sometime that week? I'm pretty sure we will be ordering pizza once a week. A large is enough for dinner and then lunch the next day for both of us, so it is convenient, cheap, and good. Use the crockpot more - anyone got any great recipes??
