BFF 4-Ever

I love my BFF. I actually am blessed to have a few but today I'm talking about Kary. We had such a great long lunch together. We both laughed about how it completely symbolizes why we're such great friends. It was lovely. Jupiter aligned with Mars and all was in perfect harmony. What was so great about lunch you ask? Must have been food cuz we love food. Nope, we were at McDonald's Playland. So it wasn't the food, although the fries were freakin' hot and fresh today! Was it the company? Not so much, we had Greta and Wyatt with us plus her 5 yr old Liam and 3 yr old Millie Mae (yes, that is REALLY her name). What made it fantastic was what we did. We made schedules. Yep. We sat down and made lists of everything we have to do in a week. Laundry, bathroom, bill paying, grocery shopping and meal planning. Everything stinkin' thing we are responsible for in the life of our families of 6. On a separate sheet of paper, we made a square for each day of the week. Then we plugged in each chore and now Kary and I each have a fabulous weekly schedule to keep us on the path!

The funniest part of all of this? We called each other on our cell phones and talked the whole drive home about how awesome our schedules are. Next week Tuesday~MEAL PLANNING!

It's actually Millie May (fyi ~ Grandma Gert insisted on the spelling and never spelled it right once).

That WAS really fun wasn't it? Now let's stick to it!!

Good luck with your new schedule - sounds like a great idea. By the way, I have four kids too, and I also have three girls and one boy. You have beautiful kids (really) - see ya.
