My Month in Review: April 2015

This month has been long. We started with Pesach and now I feel like we’re finally getting our acts together!
personal_growthI took off from work for the entire Pesach and it was amazing.  I won’t bore you with the details (I already did that), but I really learned a lot about myself and what I’m capable of. I put myself in the right mindset and coped with the unexpected.

Now we’re debating whether or not to spend the upcoming 3-day Shavuos at home…. do I have it in me to spend all that time with no other adult help while DH is in shul? Stay tuned…


No updates here. I didn’t figure out how to work my tracker device and now I even forget to wear it. Tsk, tsk. I also bought a muffin yesterday, so let’s not talk about that. (It was delicious, btw).

meaningful_spendingAfter Pesach I spent some time going through the summer clothes we have. DS2 and DS3 are all set, but I only had 2 pairs of short for DS3! Luckily, a few days after that discovery I got an email that The Children’s Place was having a 50% off sale + free shipping. I took advantage of that sale and now everyone is all set for the summer.  I love sales!

How was your month? Have you recovered from Pesach?  How long did it take you to get back on schedule?

Until next time,

  • Stay tuned for my Shavuos menu post! If it helps, you can search for my Shavuos menus from previous years. As we did in the past, I plan on leaving my oven on (we have Shabbos mode) this way I can always make something from the freezer if we need to (think fish sticks, chicken nuggets and pizza- staples in our house). I honestly don’t have a lot of already prepared foods, but since we’re keeping it simple I don’t think that will be an issue. Good luck with all your prep!
