Hi ladies !

 

Today I have done so far

 

- hung up some laundry outside , because it was such a sunny morning

- made breakfast for the lo´s

- fed myself

- realized , that my dishwasher door doesn´t stay closed anymore angry.gif

- took the lo´s to their check-up

- grabbed some stuff in the store on the way home

- got home just to realize , that it must have rained really , really bad on our side of town ,  

  and all of my clothes were completely soaked censored.gif

- fed lo´s lunch , after rescuing my poor stuff and took a nap afterwards

  I am still feeling the aftermath of our long driving trip

- tried to fix the dishwasher , didn´t work , but if I lean something heavy against it , it runs   

  anyway , so I don´t have such a hurry to get it fixed

 

 

Things , I still need to do 

 

- sweep the floor

- put aweay some laundry

- plant a few walnut trees in mine and also my Mother´s yard

- pick our red currants ( even though I might just do that tomorrow , when the kids are off )

Yesterday we ended up having workers come in and redo the entire bathroom floor from water damage.. In one way Im glad it was prior baby but the smells made me SOOO sick Im still feeling it.. Not much else got done since I spent my time keeping the kids away from the bathroom.. Today DH has to work (won't be home till tomorrow) so Im going to try to get a few things done. Im keeping the lists short and will update when one is done..

 

First list:

1) Finish diaper laundry (in the wash), rotate new load in (want to catch up on the laundry today)

2) put away laundry thats folded in the bedroom

3) clean off table in kitchen, do dishes, wipe down sinks, sweep

4) draft a jumper pattern and skirt pattern for oldest

5) draft a baby skirt pattern

6) Cut out a trial jumper and check for fit issues

7) If fit is good cut out 5 more jumpers

8) Cut out a trail skirt and check for fit issues

9) If fit is good cut out 2 more skirts

10) cut out 1 baby skirt.

11) Morning clean up, get kids dressed, brush teeth

So I haven't gotten much done today.. I did take a 3 hour nap while the kids watched tv bag.gif Does that make me a bad mom? I needed sleep sooooo bad.. Bad thing is Im still tired. Im going to go make dinner and probably won't get anything else done the rest of the night. I don't think sewing/drafting patterns and lack of sleep mix very well.

I know I am not a regular here, but we are MOVING!!! I am out of my mind thinking about the next week, we are moving early out of our current lease in order for my partner to start his DREAM job, which is 2.5 hours away. I also have a job that I should be hearing back from by Wednesday night. It would be PERFECT. 

 

In the meantime, moving more than in-town is CRAZY stressful!

That makes you a good Mom smile.gif for taking care of you and your unborn baby.

lack of sleep/poor sleep but drafted a list and am crossing things off, so far

- got up, had breakfast, including some medication in a set order (despite foggy mind)

- dried up and put away dishes, washed what was in the sink, shined the sink

- made "to do list"

- checked e-mail

- started one load in the washing machine

about to get washed, dressed and go to market & buy fresh bread ...

IsaFrench; 'going to market to buy fresh bread' sounds like a film-noir romantic excursion!

 

bejeweled; I hope your day went as planned, we spent all day packing boxes, the pool would have been a lovely respite!

 

tonttu; lazy Sundays are the best, especially after currant picking and baking!

post #935 of 1665

after living near two supermarkets in the US for 3 years, .. i do appreciate all the more the local (about 4 minutes walk from our flat) baker

they don't all of them make good baguettes (depends on how industrial/ artesanal is their process...)

but this one is doing his job very well

so we indulge more

(and i told off DH in the past when he made the "mistake" of buying bread from the baker near the supermarket, in quality it's terribly awaful ...)

... i even sew a cloth bag with string handles (sometimes the bread is VERY hot coming out of the oven ...) specially for when we go and buy bread ...

post #936 of 1665

very sluggish this am, just had tea so far

& sent both eldest to catch the bus to school ... the first time that DS is going "alone" with DD1

DD2 still asleep, need to get washed and dressed & then wake her up to get her ready for school (we leave 1h10 min later !!!)

today =only my second day "alone" for 2 months, my "to do list" is humongous .....

post #937 of 1665

I have so much to get done this week Im trying to get as much as possible done early since I know that the later week will be harder to get things done.. What Ive gotten done so far:

-worked on laminating/putting together things I need for the girls schooling

-made breakfast and lunch

-spent most of the night up with my middle who suddenly was scared of the dark and freaked if we turned out the light

- made breakfast, lunch and dinner

- did most of the school things with my oldest

 

Need to:

finish the rest of the laminating.. need to cool the machine first

draft a skirt and dress pattern

make trail dress and skirt

finish school things with my oldest

quick clean apartment

do laundry

start preping newborn diapers

if I catch up on laundry Im going to go ahead and wash the baby clothing/blankets etc.

Oooh, I like that! The list of things I need to do is so huge and overwhelming. Much better to spend my spare time on MDC winky.gif.

But a done list would be so much more satisfying and make me feel like adding things to it...
