Manic Monday-Getting Back on Track...Again

Hi Friends, I've missed you!  I have been working hard.  Working my zones and routines and focusing on specific areas to get them into tip top shape.  And most importantly, I have been focusing on getting the boys on a good routine.  That has been the real challenge.  The baby is walking now and that is all he wants to do, even when he is so tired that his legs can no longer support him.  My oldest had a little regression issue with his potty training, he actually told me he was a baby and he NEEDED to wear diapers.  And my middle son has been so great, I have been working extra hard to make sure he doesn't get lost in the shuffle. SO where do I find time to write?  The short answer is that I don't.

But there is GOOD news!  I'm back! At least for now.  So let's get started with our MANIC MONDAY!

Mondays are always crazy at our house (I may have mentioned this before).  We're trying to get back on track from the weekend, we love when Daddy is home but it changes up our routine a bit and we need Mondays to get back on it.  

Monday is also trash day.  Now that has been our issue the past couple of weeks.  Two weeks ago the trash men came earlier than they ever have before.  We were caught collecting our garbage and even though I ran down my driveway yelling, "Please wait!!!!", off they went, never to return.  Now I think I have mentioned before that I live in a VERY rural place.  We're talking deer and bears, rural.  Putting our trash out the night before is not an option, so what is our alternative?  Getting up before 7 am to get the trash to the curb before they arrive, but this week the trash men were here an hour before they came last week.  Urgh!  There is good news!  Hubby put the trash out before he left for work at 6 am so all was good.  Thanks to the LORD! 

So my question for all of you is, do you have a relationship with your trash men and how do you avoid getting caught with trash cans full of trash for two weeks?


  1. Does your trash only come every 2 weeks? That's crazy. But considering where we live I guess it's amazing you have trash pick up! Our trash comes once a week on Mondays, usually around 2:00 in the afternoon. We use to have trash cans, but I gave up on those when the wind would blow them all over the neighborhood and I actually lost one a few years ago. Now we just use bags and so far it's the best. Well, one bag did blow away a year ago! LOL

    1. No, our trash comes once a week, but we had missed them the week before because of the change in schedule so we had two weeks worth of trash and nearly missed them again. Wish there was some way they could have notified us of the change...
