duce myself!

I'm Kim(26)... I've been married for 5½ years and have 2 children, Savannah(4) & Alex(17½ months). I have been a WOHM since Savannah was 18 months and I'm dreaming of the day when I can be a SAHM! If DH and I can get some small bills (small payments but LOTS of them! LOL) paid off, then maybe by December I can live my dream!!!

You all have inspired me... I thought that we'd better start now and let me tell you, it helps when I think of my goal to SAH! I came home and planned our menu for the next week and a half!! I'm also going to start going to the grocery store with a list... I'm horrible at that!

I hope to hang around here more often and learn lots of tips from you all! BTW, I posted a question below too! ;o)

HI Kim, I posted my answer to your question below. I just wanted to take a minute to welcome you though.

I have a challenge for you. Since you said you made your menu for a week and a half, try to go another day or two on what you already have.

I have my schedule set to only go to the store on certain days. I make myself make whatever I have work to until then.

Welcome, Kim! Great job doing the menu for the week! Did you find it fun or difficult? Do you think you'll stick with it?

I don't have a lot of time online today, but hopefully I'll get a chance to get to the other messages as well. Just wanted to say hi and welcome.

Thanks Sharon! You'd be proud of me! lol I STILL haven't been to the grocery store! I am the world's worst at buying something and having it get "lost" in the pantry! I've made a promise that I will not go to the grocery store (except for milk and bread ;o) until we've cleaned out the freezer and pantry!!

Thanks Leslie! I actually had fun planning our menu! I "used" to be SO organized before I had kids, but I'm trying to get back to that! It was actually fun for me!
