Today's Schedule

So far today, I've gotten a few things checked off my list I've had for quite sometime.

I stopped by the W.I.C. office and even though they were closed, there were still people there who were able to give me the paperwork I needed to get myself and L signed up. I stopped receiving W.I.C. about 2 years ago because of the hassle. All the appointments and having to keep up with them was just getting to bothersome for me. I was also working, so that had an impact on my decision. Now that I'm staying at home, and that's one less income, I'm hoping to get back on track.

I also stopped by the Pregnancy Care Center to drop off some of L's old clothes, get some bible studies, and pick out some clothes and baby items needed for baby. I like the PCC because they are a big help in the community. I can take all of L's old clothes and give them to people who need them. While I'm there I can browse around and see what they have for the new baby! A great way to recycle and reuse, as well as save money!

I have decided to make Monday & Thursday's laundry days and it seems to help having set days for laundry. I still need to wash the 2 big comforters, but have to take them to the laundromat. This HAS to be done before baby is here.

We will be going to the grocery store shortly and our budget is $100. I hope to get enough to last us for at least 2 weeks. I will be glad once I can get W.I.C. again. It is truly a big help and we do use a lot of cheese and milk. L does not drink milk at all, he won't even eat cereal that's been put in milk, only dry cereal. He does however, eat food that contains milk, like cheese! So I know he gets his calcium.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I enjoyed reading through your recent posts. I'm excited to follow your schedule development. I am trying to get myself a similar type of schedule.

I love the idea of cloth diapers. We use reusable g-diapers with our kids (I'm too lazy for cloth). Just a small tip... cloth diapers in the first 6ish weeks is really hard. Just keep some other options around in case you are too tired to wash! And don't use the first two months to make a final decision about diapers. =)

Good luck! I'll be back to see how you're doing.
