This week has been a mixture of soggy shoes and gooey tissues. Both our boys are sick and I’m trying desperately to say healthy. Not an easy feat I might add. My hands are chapped and cracked from all the hand washing and I’m going through bottles of Purell like it’s going out of style. So far so good…not a sneeze or sniffle.
Unfortunately this has left almost no time for my on going projects:
Home Office Makeover is at a standstill. I’ve used painters tape to mark out placement for my Lack shelves but have yet to make the trip to Ikea to pick them up. Driving an hour away when my boys aren’t feeling well hasn’t been on the top of my list. Not to mention the weather has been nasty which puts a damper on my motivation levels. Thankfully the boys are feeling better and if all goes according to plan we’ll be heading to Ikea over the weekend.
Now I wasn’t totally useless in the DIY department this past week. I did squeak in a few small to-do’s for the kids playroom which I hope to post tomorrow evening!

I love freebies! Who doesn’t right?
Below is a preview of the grocery list I created for our household. I created a 2 column layout with a dashed visual fold line so it’s easier to carry around while we shop. There is also a small Notes section at the bottom of each column.
Looks great in color as well as black & white! And it prints on standard 8.5″ x 11″ paper.
