I have tried to figure out how in the world I am supposed to accomplish all of these things. Everything that I read says that I must figure out my priorities first and then fill in the gaps with everything else. Well, all of these are priorities so... what to do? Here is something I am giving a try. We'll see if it works and if I can keep it up. In the mornings I will spend an hour before school starts at 8am doing my morning chores. Then we aren't finished with school until about 4:30. So, I need to get some chores done during school -- snack and lunch!! So, here is how I'm trying to save time.
On Saturdays I get the lunches and snacks ready for the rest of the week. Here is what I did yesterday in preparation for this coming week.
|This is a close up of the dessert box mentioned above. There are a couple of chocolate chip cookies and fig newtons in each little snack baggie. At the end of their lunch they may each pick one baggie for dessert.|
|Fruit container with peanut butter for the apples. Yummy!! See, fresh produce snacks too. Who doesn't need that?|
|I made our own little lunchables! :) Yay!! If I can find one of those little decrusting (is that a word?) things that seal the sides of the sandwich then I'll make those and freeze them so they're like Decrustables only cheaper. ;)|
|Vanilla yogurt with fruit (blueberries and strawberries pictured above) and applesauce. I could also do my own jellos or pudding if I want.|
