Mom31, did you find the money?

sorry I was on my kindle and it does not let me barely type an answer...

Yes- I found the money on my stove somehow- ugh. In the process I let my boyfriends dog out- and she wound up at a neighbors and luckily has a phone number on her tag so I spent quite a bit of time tracking her down and taking care of her- so happy she is ok...he is not mad at me. what a day.

Oh goodness, Mom31!! I hope you are doing ok. 


Bejeweled, congrats on finally getting your hair colored. :P   Mine always ends up being a week or so later than I planned, because the henna has to sit for three+ hours. 


This morning bf made CINNAMON BUNS!!! And they were BETTER than Cinnabon. (This from the guy who SWEARS he can't cook.) We also got shelves for our shed from a CL post, and some awesome pots for the yard, spring is coming and gardening is part of homeschool as well as my hobbies.   


Today I am kid free, and I have to....

~File Fafsa (This year and next)

~Some sewing projects (for MYSELF!)

~Clean up the girls room, rotate toys. It is a DISASTER because they just have too much. :(

~Pack a long overdue box to send to my parents (with V-day cards and somesuch)

~Figure out V-day for whole house

~Clean up my TERRIBLY messy sewing room

~Start my next custom commission


I love lazy Sundays. :P

Thanks, bejeweled. This weekend was almost a total wash. My sleep is seriously off-track and that makes it hard to get things done. BUT, I did get a few things done, let me think...

*Hung a load of laundry to dry

*Got laundry put away/gave DH his clothes to put away

*Wiped the kitchen counter a couple times

*Packed med boxes for me & DH (a weekly thing on Sundays)


Since it's 3 in the morning I'm going to put today's goals for later on:

*Wash dishes

*Hang laundry after DH gets it washed

*Make minestrone soup for dinner, maybe muffins if I'm up to it

*Sort through 1 or 2 drawers in the living room


Here's to a great week for all of us! And now I'm off to read for a little bit and hopefully fall asleep okay.

post #309 of 1665

I am working on getting into a regular sleep pattern. Ideally I want to go to bed at 22.00 and go up at 06.00 since I am much more productive during those early morning hours than I am during the rest of the day. I have some way to go since I did get up first at 9.00 today...


But I've got things done


- Threw out all the garbage in the kitchen (it is amazing how it just sort of fills up).

- Flipped over a mat, that has been curling at one edge, so hopefully it will now lay flat.

- Put on a machine of dark laundry.

- Took a damp rag and did a general surface dusting in my room.

- Fluffed my pillow and turned down my duvet, so the bed looks orderly. I prefer to make it this way in the morning, so that the mattress etc. gets a chance to air. Now one of my cats is curled up on it, sleeping soundly.

- Did finalise an accountant business card design I've been thinking about for two whole weeks, for a graphic assignment I've got. Now just to do the same for the magician. :)

- Had lunch.

- Played with my kitten (important, or he starts running rampage throughout the house).

Hey ladies. I would like join this thread in hopes to get more organized. :)

I am Mama of two boys, DS1 is 9 y/o and DS2 is 6 weeks old. Trying to get back into the groove. :)


This weekend I got rid of over 100 books that I never read, or would never read. Clothes, furniture we never use. It felt so good.


DS1 is out on a trip with DH until tomorrow night, so I have been cleaning the playroom and DS1's bedroom aswell.


Its very challanging to get anything done during the day with the baby etc. But so far this is what I did today:


*Changed diapers

*BF baby

*Ate a muffin with decaf coffee

*Loaded and ran the dishwasher

*Vaccuumed DS1's bedroom

*BF baby

*Ate lunch

*Vaccuumed living room

*Relax while baby is napping


Things I still need to do today is:


*Clean litter box

*Take recycle out

*Finish moving furniture in DS1's room

*Vaccuum playroom

Welcome Euromom!


Happy Valentines Day everyone!! blowkiss.gif


I have so much to do today and Im SO SO sick to my stomach. Im going to try to work while I feel up to it then rest when I feel sick again. Slow and steady wins the race when it comes to getting things done. The movers are bringing everything back from Okinawa tomorrow joy.gifso I need to get some stuff done before they get here..


TO Dos Today:

Finish up the knitting project Im working on

clean up the living room and vacuum up the crumbs

line the cupboards in the kitchen

line the drawers in the kitchen

put away the dishes in the dishwasher and do the next load

hang and put away clothes as best as possible

put together drawers that are apart and all over the bedroom floor

try to at least put all the stuff that doesn't have a home yet in one room so the movers can come in easier

clean bathroom and put down rugs

sew 1 project bag

sew 4 living room curtains and hang (needs to be hung before TMO comes tomorrow)

take a shower

shopping list

go out and get yarn for 1 project and some food

have the girls do a few Valentines day projects


Im sure there is more but I doubt Ill get that done. Off to start because if I don't at least start something then I KNOW nothing will get done :)

Ive decided to alternate 10 minutes of working with 10 minutes of doing something that doesn't require me to be up on my feet. Hopefully then I can get some stuff done.. First 10 minutes Im going to clean up the living room, put the air mattress away and vacuum up the crumbs. When Im done with that Im going to spend 10 minutes knitting.
