I'm working on revisions for Chapters One and Three this week, and so I apologize for my lack of well-constructed blog posts. This is another housekeeping-type post, and a mostly selfish one: a to-do list for the week and a meal plan that I neglected to post on Sunday.
To Do This Week
Chapter One Revisions (introductory section, especially) DONE
Chapter Three Revisions (hypotheses section) POSTPONED*
Grocery shopping (Wednesday with ST) DONE
Ironing for T (Wednesday during ST's nap) POSTPONED (I napped, too!)
Proof draft of T's cover letter DONE
Proof draft of my brother's personal statement for grad school applications DONE
Draft syllabus for intro course (Friday afternoon) STARTED
ST's laundry (get squash soup stain out of his dress shirt!) DONE
Meal Plan (in no particular order)
Enchilada Soup (great recipe using masa, adapted from my Mom's collection)
Hamburgers (T's request) with fruit salad and cottage cheese
Pan-fried Salmon Cakes (getting geared up for Lent) and Green Salad
Chef's Salads and Homemade Applesauce
Wild Rice Soup (to use the rest of the ham from the Chef's Salads)
Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup and Egg Salad Sandwiches
Dessert: Cinnamon-Streusel Coffee Cake
And speaking of food, it's time for lunch.
*I decided to touch up my statistical overview chapter, Chapter Four, instead. Touching up the hypotheses is easier when I can refer to the updated statistics.
