Making My Home Sing And Menu Plan Monday

Good morning! Just got a phone call that made my day. My phone rang and I answered it. I hear rustling around with the phone then some numbers being pushes slowly . I knew it was my daughters phone (thanks to caller ID), but figured sweet little grandson, Talmage had got a hold of her phone. So I say Hello Talmage and then he carried on a little conversation of mumbles with me. Kid cracks me up!
Monday is one of my favorite days of the week. It is always a new start for things for me since I am a little OCD this just works out. Nan's hosts Making Your Home Sing Monday every week .
After being in bed most of yesterday with not sure what just feeling sore all over and hurting I got up and came down stairs and the house looks like I was gone for a week or so. EEEK!! Maybe a early Halloween trick I don't think so. It is called Mom has been in bed and 4 kiddos and hubby didn't do anything to pick up after themselves.
My plan for making my home sing is working on my Home Control Journal or what some call a Home Management Binder. I have mine in by my desk but I think it needs updated and brought to the attention of my family that it is to be used by all of us not just mom. This awakening brings to my attention I do a little too much for the family and the don't think of doing things for themselves when I am ill or gone. I don't want to sound harsh but the chore chart hasn't happened in this house for many, many months. So tonight for Family Home Evening we will have a lesson on responsibility and the chore chart will be presented and also the Home Control Journal will be introduced to them. All of course in a loving manner. Don't get me wrong I am not trying to play the martyr I just feel that the house should be kept picked up and taken care of even if I am not home.

My Menu Plan Monday for this week in no particular order is:
Chicken Enchiladas
Re fried beans

Baked Penne Pasta
Green Bean Casserole
Italian Bread

Crustless Quiche w/bacon

Cheddar Chicken
Yellow Squash

Dinner out with the Family & Coco, Baby Peanut, Kyle and Talmage

Oh, my kids picked up the phone and talked to my parents on the phone for like 45? minutes. My Dad was totally cracking up on the other end. When we finally realized that Emily was talking (really talking to someone) and not just playing, we were shocked. My Dad had a blast with this. Oh, grandparenting must be so sweet!

Oh how cute! My friend called me once but all I could hear was the car radio, lol!

My kids are lax on their chores lately too. They are certainly old enough to know better and I don't see why I have to remind them. So I think a talk is in order here too! Thanks for linking up today!

I love being a grandparent, although my grand daughter is much too young to play with the phone yet. How fun for you!

I can so relate to your frustration with your family. I've been feeling it a little lately too. I'm glad I'm not the only one and that I need to re-enforce everyone's responsibilities around the house.
