:welcome Thomas!

I'll always be MIA on weekends - busy job taking care of critical animals smile.gif
I'm pretty unmotivated today, but I have done a couple of 15 minute sessions. I moved the kids' cubbies from the porch into the house and rearranged the dining room so that they would fit. I'm so sick of having a pile of winter clothing at the door because it's too cold to hang outside. My mom went and bought the kids tons of new stuff this weekend, so I still have that to go through. Let's see, I have a list a mile long...

sort new clothes
sort strewn clothes
loads of laundry
loads of dishes
kids room
move Wii upstairs to our bedroom, away from kids
declutter dining room
clean off counters
clean off table
sweep and mop floors
vacuum living room
make beds

I did put chili in the crockpot, so at least dinner is taken care of smile.gif

I'm beat - I fought for at least an hour with our hopmad.gif washing machine and managed to get one load done, I think. I haven't gone down in awhile because I'm afraid I'll break it for good bag.gif

Got the kids to school and home, made a bank deposit, paid the mortgage, sorted through bills and miscellaneous paper clutter, went to the gym, and dinner is in the oven. All in all, a pretty decent day.

We're going to have company on Friday. We rarely have company other than family and have never had this couple over. The way I see it though is that I will clean up what I can and if they don't like us because of our house, then we're not meant to be friends, right? I can't do it ALL with 3 kids under 5, a dog, 4 cats, and a husband. Not to mention studying and work. wink1.gif

Today I had one of those days when I just couldn't get the energy to do much, so decided to listen to my body and just do whatever I could manage.

 

Done:

 

clipped DS's nails

emptied dishwasher

made coffee

dried towels

Made 2 beds

stripped sheets off 2 beds

washed sheets

banked cheques

transferred money

posted work

lazed in front of TV orngtongue.gif

 

 

Actually now that I write it out, I did a bit more than I realised!

 

To do:

 

clean microwave

prepare zucchini fritters

fold towels

make beds x 2 with clean sheets

change handtowels

I have a miserable teething baby today - he's cutting four molars at once - so I haven't done much cleaning. I did, however, sort through the kids' books and got rid of about 20 that I hated reading, and I got rid of four large garbage bags full of toys from the playroom and playroom closet! WITHOUT the kids noticing!

I also have vacuumed, rescheduled an appointment, took the garbage out, and tidied up the playroom. I still have to do the dishes, sweep, tidy up the kitchen, and possibly bake cookies with the boys.

Have a wonderful day, ladies! :)

Raining here today and I'm feeling low energy.. so I concentrated my efforts on cleaning out the fridge and using the odds and whatnots I find to help cook a meal or two. I've got the crockpot simmering with the wilted veggies and leftover chicken carcass. That will make stock for tonight's meal and tomorrow night's stew. I've turned the overripe bananas into a banana bread in the oven. I also put the last of the chocolate ice cream in with some soy milk and another overripe banana to make a breakfast smoothie of sorts for myself. 

 

So the fridge looks better and it helps to make the next shopping list. The house is smelling good with the banana bread baking. I'll pick up just a bit and call it good enough for today.

Today is gray and drizzly and just so... blah. I'm not feeling too well and have zero motivation. Just doing the bare minimum today:

-dishes

-sweep, mop, vacuum

-run garbage & recycling out

-tidy up before ds2's speech therapy later

-wash and put away one load of laundry

-make beds

 

Yesterday evening I sorted through ALL the bins of outgrown/out-of-season kids' clothes. I threw out a small bagful of stained items and filled two large garbage bags with stuff to donate, and sorted the bins according to who will fit what next. I whittled it down to 4 bins: 2 for baby clothes up to 18mo, 1 for clothes for my 1yo to grow into, and 1 for stuff for my 3yo to grow into (with a few items for my 5yo thrown in there). That was no small task, so I think I deserve a day off now!
