I work from home so sometimes I have my hands free for a bit and other times I try to take short, productive breaks. Right now I've done about 4 1/2 out of the 8ish hours I should clock at work, and I have four more hours before I pick up DD from daycare.

 

Today I:

 

Made a lazy/quick breakfast of granola, frozen blueberries, & kefir

Took DD to daycare

Cleared up all the debris that resulted from my mom watching DD here yesterday!!

Got various shoes, clothes, and toys put away

Made instant coffee with honey- a thick brew!

Sliced mushrooms for dinner

 

 

Still need to:

 

Vacuum!

Make the bed

Fold clean clothes (from last week- got all of mine done & away days ago, but DD's stuff is still sitting around in a basket!)

More dinner prep, then wash dishes from dinner before bedtime

Laundry- perhaps tomorrow?

I might be joining you both in the slacker stakes today....I had a headache last night and woke up again with it this morning,

 

So I think I won't run around doing heaps like I did yesterday. Sipping on my caffix.gif.....hoping the caffeine will help!

post #573 of 1753



Thanks for keeping me company. Slackers need companionship, too! LOL I do envy you your nap, though. I'm about to (try to) retire early.

I hope your headache gets better. And you've definitely earned a slacker day. Relax and enjoy~

The rest of my day was truly of slacker quality. I put away a load of laundry and started to pick the bedroom up (making a very small dent in it), but that's about it. Oh well, tomorrow is a new day.

So far I have

Cleaned up a mess the kitten made by dumping a thing of liquid soap all over the place
Changed kitty litter

Picked up the apartment
Cleaned bathrooms
Mopped bathrooms
Vacuumed all rooms
Striped and remade girls beds
Packed diapeer bag for tomorrow
Kitchen cleaned and mopped

Relax


But first I need to change a diaper and nurse the baby.

Fed and changed the baby, got the girls dressed and put away a load of laundry. Now I'm going to go clean up the kitty litter, sweep/mop where it is, make my bed and clean up the bedroom. If I still have time in the 15 minutes I'll start on the master bathroom.

Eta: bedroom done and so is the kitty litter. Up next is the master bathroom

Bathroom done. The baby wants to nurse again then I'm going to go start on the living room then move into the hall bathroom

Hey Poetry, what do you put in your Super Salad?
post #580 of 1753
Ok baby went down for a nap and I got a ton of stuff done. He's up now though and it is past lunch time so I'm taking a break to play with him and eat. After that I'm going to sweep and mop the kitchen and hopefully fold another load of laundry.
