Maggirayne i love getting rid of stuff too!
I'm so proud today, it's only 4 and I've gotten almost all of my to-do list done! I did a load of laundry, packed, taped and labeled a box of clothes, did the dishes before making the brownies, picked up, swept and swiffered the living room, called all the people i needed to call (of course most weren't there and haven't returned my messages....), had DS do a few pages in his writing book, and played Dance Dance Revolution with DS. Now the boys are watching power rangers
: and i'm gonna go start dinner (breakfast burritos) in a few minutes. yay!
: Of course, this probably means I won't get anything done for the next four dayscuz I'll be so exhausted from one productive day.
Last week I found a book I lost, oh, I think before I broke my arm maybe? So July?
Oh wait, I don't have to do that here. I talked to a friend who I knew before he worked at the library, and asked what if I bought the book myself and paid the processing fee they charge when yo pay for a replacement book, so I did save $5-6. But it was in a box of papers from clearing the table that got carried to the bedroom and clothes piled on top.
Oh man, I so know what you mean about one productive day wiping you out. Heheh, actually, just playing a little Dance Dance Revolution would wear me out.
Yay! You got a lot done! I got the apt. ready for last night's movie night, well, didn't do anything in the bathroom besides take all the pee underwear to the laundry room. The sink is so grody I get nauseous when DD drops her toothbrush in it. But it's all gotta be clear to wash. Sigh.
But I got my spare room pretty organized and sorted a lot of stuff. And the boxes I moved from the living room are neatly stacked. It would look messy to the casual observer, but it's just haphazardly piled in there, so I feel better.
Now, as long as I don't lose my motivation to keep stuff going. I should have someone over for supper tomorrow, since DH will be gone, and I'll keep stuff clean. I need to hit all the kitchen cabinets. I got the bread machine gone so room for my silverware and the Vitamix where it used to be. Then I can leave the lid on and get in my cabinet easily. Er wait, the Vitamix will fit by the sink and the coffeemaker can sit on the microwave cart (around the corner, sorta out of the kitchen) but I can have counter space to get smoothie ingredients out. It's like a balancing act.

I wish I had a hard time getting out of bed. It's hard to stay in when you've got a baby saying "Mama stand up! I wanna potty."
Sigh, she was up at 7:15, with DH until he got sausage, then decided she wanted to nurse, then wanted sausage, so I got up, so then she wanted to nurse. At least my back was hurting so I had to get up anyway. But she wouldn't go back to sleep, and she's been sleeping to 10, so she's been fussy, which makes me crazy.
She is only 21 months old. But sometimes, she talks so much/well, it's hard to remember she's a baby yet.
Argh, she got a stick of butter off the counter and is gnawing on it. Well, at least butter is one of the things recommended in Cure Tooth Decay, but this isn't organic or super good. Sigh. It's only 11, can I hide?
