This post is a little bit of housekeeping and tidy-ing up, since that is totally not happening in my ‘real’ house right now.
First, “Why are they calling ME mom?” made a comment on my most recent “Menu Plan Monday” that she plans her menu out for two weeks. Cheers; that’s some organization right there. She did a post on her blog with more information if you would like to see how she does it.
On my post about activities to do with groups of kids, eastowners mentioned a tour of an ice cream place on the East Beltline. It was Marble Slab Creamery, but I think they have since gone out of business. I suspect they did it just to avoid us returning; the staff was quite underwhelmed with our children. Also, I will be sure to do another post in the fall about orchard tours! There are so many to choose from around here.
3inunder 3 made a comment about a movie rental program called “Redbox”. I did a search and found out that we have one in town; it is at the 52nd Street Meijer. It is $1 per movie per day. Check out their website for more info and a code for one free rental.
The Diaper Diaries asked if the Entertainment Book card can be used at the Heritage Restaurant after my post about cheap dates. It can, but only on certain days. See the Entertainment Book for more details.
And finally – definitely in the “Last but not least” category is a comment from Elaine on my post about my husband being out of town, who reminded me not to serve supper too early. This has been the temptation evey single night, but I have stayed strong and held out until normal dinner time. In case anyone else finds themselves in this situation – this is great advice!
Thanks everyone for the reminders and suggestions. Strangely enough, even as I write this I feel like I am forgetting something…
