Tuesday and My Plan

Happy New Year!

I had a wonderful time ringing in the New Year at home with my sweet husband and kids. We played Uno, snacked, laughed and before we knew it, midnight was here.   

How did you ring in the New Year? Did you make any resolutions? I used to make resolutions, but found I respond better and reach my goals more often when I make weekly & monthly action plans.

I’ve got big plans for My WAHM Plan, which is now officially a dot.com!
 I’ll keep the focus on home, sharing some of my DIY projects both inside and out.  I’ll share books and recipes, home office tips, the trials and triumphs of raising daughters and of course Reviews!

Here’s what I’m working on this week:

Finish boxing up holiday decorations. It’s a balmy 32 degrees here today, so the outside stuff can wait.
Clip coupons for the week and plan lunches for the girls returning to school on Thursday.
Change shower liners, wash shower curtains TODAY! (I have been putting this one off for a week).
Vacuum once all boxes are outta here.

Finish closing out year on Quick books.
Order hubby’s business cards after getting final approval for re-designed cards.  
Look into Google business listing.
Organize files on desktop, print out any drawings and file with correct job.
Upload new pictures for website.

De-clutter side bar.
Make a list of sites I love and review business affiliations & share with my readers.
Visit and comment on at least 5 new blogs.
Visit my blog buddies and comment.
Post at least once more this week.

Read one more chapter of Harry Potter book and discuss with Ms. T.
Read one more chapter of Edison’s Gold and discuss with Ms. M.
Take girls to the Dollar store for calendars. (The ones’ they got for Christmas are too small).
Play Uno, Sorry, or Spider wick Chronicles this afternoon.
Make loomed Potholders with Ms. M & Ms. T.
Make sure their backpacks are truly cleaned out before they go back to school.
Get them to bed early tonight to ease them back on school schedule.

So, that's my plan for this week. What's on your agenda?


  1. Get pottery wheel set up to make small tea pots and carve them for a show. Increase my pottery stock.
    Think about using clay ideas on my blog.
    Post ahead and look into new blog groups.
    Get bible study ready for ladies.
    Check on progress of my e-books.
    Think about a real vacation time...away from home!
    Now that I'm feeling much better and the muscles aren't twisting like they were, I think all the above ideas are do-able. Happy New Year!

  2. Hi Donna, my dear blogging buddy, I am so glad to hear your muscles & you are feeling better. :-)
    I would love to see more of your pottery.
    I know what you mean about a real vacation! The old stay-cation is getting a little old here too.
    Let's pray our 2012 will be an awesome year!

  3. I've never been great at planning, except meals and spending money. :)

    This week we've been working on getting the boys back into a routine. Between being sick and holidays, everything has just been a bit out of whack.

    Apart from that we've been diagnosing our vehicle, and trying to figure out how much it will cost to fix it. Going to have to put aside some tax return for that and tires before we head back home to SC.

    I've never been one to make new years resolutions, but I'm signed up for a yoga challenge and hubby signed up with me this year, though he's never done it.

    With the blog I've chosen a new focus, but I still need find someone to do my header design. It's on the back burner until tax return too.

    Finally, I'm trying to think up a fun giveaway to mark my upcoming 1 year anniversary with the blog.

    Happy New Year!

  4. Heather,

    It is tricky getting the kiddies back on track after their long winter break isn't it.
    Today was my girls 1st day back at school and the house was quite. A little too quite so I listened to alot of music.

    Wow! Way to go getting your hubby to do the Yoga challenge with you!You should write about it on your blog. Speaking of it, I like your new focus and wish you all the best with it and your family in 2012!
    I'm going to hop on over there to see if you've posted anything more about your upcoming trip to NC. :-)


I'd love to hear from you!
