We got home from our walk not long ago - it was wonderful to be outside in the sunshine! I just put the pumpkin bread in the oven. I've got the laundry in now, and I'm off to go clean the bathroom while the bread bakes. Hope your day is going well! smile.gif

Thanks Dantesmama, it is 80 degrees again right now and 60% humidity, but only 5pm, so hoping it will drop a bit earlier today.  It is hard to want to do much in this humidity!!

 

Hope you got the fossil dust cleaned up!  lol.gif

So far today:

 

emptied dishwasher

did workout at gym

got food at shops

cleaned kitchen sink

dusted DS's bedroom

washed DS's sheets

vacuumed lounge room

vacuumed under cushions

To do:

Hi everyone! It's great to see this thread hopping with so many people! I've been gone a while. I've gotten past the first trimester sickness and tiredness and am able to do a little more these days.

 

I'll be back in 15 minutes to post my progress.

Yesterday I vaccumed, did dishes, and weeded out a bunch of Jude's clothes that don't fit anymore and put them in the closet.

Later, did a load of diaper laundry, swept, and cleaned off the kitchen counter.

I have a cold today so tomorrow I'm going to have to catch up on folding all that laundry... eek!!!

Today I plan to:

-wash dishes

-clean kitchen

-sweep & mop

-clean bathroom

-run garbage & recycling out

-clear entryway

-vacuum

-wash one load of laundry

-put away all clean laundry

-make beds & tidy bedrooms

 

I'll be checking in with my progress. Have a great day!

Whew, this mornig was busy! I...

Put clean dishes away & reloaded the dishwasher plus washed a few big mixing bowls by hand
Folded 2 huge loads of laundry, sorted, and put them all away
Started a load of bedding & couch cover laundry
Vacuumed all over
Swept & cleaned the kitchen counter & stovetop
Sorted through Jude's toys to weed out the ones he doesn't play with

Do I really feel like cleaning the bathroom too? Hmm...

Thanks, bejeweled. I had a tooth extracted last week and I've been feeling "off" since. I feel like my body is trying to fight off an infection.

 

Hi, clutterwarrior and JessicaRenee. Jessica, you certainly were busy this morning! I got tired just reading your post! thumbsup.gif

 

In addition to what I crossed off of my list above, I also remembered to make appointments for well visits for all three boys, and call the school district for ds1's registration packet. Off to tidy up and do the floors.
