Wellllll...It's all done for another year isn't it? I hate to see it go but look forward to next year, I do truly. And looking forward doesn't take long does it? Hard to believe that by the end of this week it will be 2015! I've told John we must go get meats this next week...then I sat down and planned out meals and really we might wait another week. My reason for going on now? It's just easier if it doesn't interfere with grocery week. I've tried that many times and it never does go as planned. So I'll do a separate trip this week. We've set aside the bulk of the money we'll spend for this and any overage will be made up from other sub accounts that are well plenished at the moment.
Christmas was nice but as I've said, I'm looking ahead to 2015. I've already jotted down my notes about Hanukkah and Christmas and what should be done differently, what worked really well and should be repeated. It's a great help to go back in October or November and read my notes while I'm planning ahead.
Tonight I sat down and jotted out a short menu plan. It's not fancy and I will have to make a small grocery trip with an expense of perhaps $20, but that is all. And I won't let myself be too tempted since I know we are going down to purchase meats in bulk.

That's what I really mean to do for the whole week: make my plans for 2015. I've been thinking it over and there are many things I want to make sure to touch on this year, things I want to learn, projects. I need this time to get my head together.
