bejeweled- I hope your daughter enjoyed the time with her grandparents. I started spending a few weeks a summer with my grandma at 13 and did until I joined the military at 19. I have so many fond memories of that. She passed last year, Im so grateful for the time I got to spend with her while she was living.

 

I didn't get as much done yesterday as I hoped. The kiddos needed some extra attention, they are missing their Daddy right now.

 

Today I need to try to:

clean up my room

clean up the hall way

do some laundry (done 3 loads so far!)

clean up around the living room

vacuum living room, hall, bedroom

finish dishes

clean off the table

make dinner (spaghetti and garlic bread)

Wrote several short articles

Matched socks (now of the great things about summer coming--less socks)

Gave youngest a bath

Cleaned the litter box 

Sent and replied to several emails concerning summer schedule stuff

Started one load of laundry

Folded and put away another load of laundry

Did dishes

 

I have an hour left to see what else can be done--probably book reading with my son and maybe swishing through the bathrooms. 

 

 

After school I have to take the kids to the ice rink for my daughter's lessons, and dinner will be leftovers.

Oki, How fortunate you were to spend those formative years with her. Where did your grandma live? They all had a blast together. I think they enjoy it even more when I'm not around. It's like they get to be parents again and form their own special bond.

- have started a load of laundry

- cooked some vegetables and an egg so that I have something healthy for our playdate in the park

- written checks for two bills (but we are out of stamps so need to get out and get some)

- informed the children that there's no TV to be watched for the moment since they woulden't do their homework for Thursday on Monday evening

(we were out on Tuesday evening) so am not popular right now LOL

- am wondering when I'm going to be able to fit in some sort of physical activity for today ....

(& wish i had a little more "time alone" before the children woke up, i feel less able to complete my "to do list" suddently, and it's not yet 8:00 am !!!)

trying to learn my dance routines from short films i took during the lesson ... it's hard with all the twisting and turning this way and that way etc ...

 

- went shopping this morning

- prepared swim bags for DD1 and DS

- made lunch for us remaining 3 only

- prepared my bag for tonight's double class (with a snack in between both classes)

- baked some mini banana muffins (to take away some place tomorrow morning)

- did one load of laundry and put it up to dry

- spent 10  minutes looking for my larger size pants to cover leotard (were on the other drying line, didn't  THINK of it )

(whilst searching, re-organised part of DS clothes closet ....)

 

- tried to resist but couldn't and searched for DH's cousin on FB, to message her and suggest a possible meetup so that both sets of children can meet up for one hour or so on our way to our holiday .... not sure i'll get an answer, it looks like MIL, although not a muslim extremist as far as i know, might have issued a kind of fatwa against me/having any contact with me ... after I opened my big mouth to set some much needed limits (between her and us, nothing to do with said cousin ....) 6 months ago ... + last time we tried to meet up with that cousin, that famous ash cloud descended upon us and we could neither travel nor recover our plane tickets money ....

DH doesn't want to ask for a meetup because he's both worried about being refused one and/or about family members getting grief from MIL afterwards for braving her dicktat .... i just want to know, one way or the other ...

 

need to go back to these videos and practice some more .... so many distractions with MDC being so tempting ...

So yesterday I got a whole bunch of stuff done I hadn't planned on getting done and very little that I had planned on. I did go through the girls puzzles and threw out the ones missing pieces. I organized all my sewing and knitting supplies. We ended up with an unexpected house guest (not a person, a mutt.. found he starving and shivering in our back yard greensad.gif) so I had to spend some time taking care of that. Now either to find his owner or figure out what to do with him. I hadn't planned on taking in a dog since I told my husband we wouldn't have another one until we stopped moving around so much, it hurt to have to rehome our last (no one would rent to us with his breed, we went to over 30 rental agencies, more apartments than I want to think about etc and nada unless we wanted to buy which would have been a bad choice). This mutt is way to thin and infested with fleas so it should be just so much "fun" to deal with it.

 

Ok, so today Im going to start from scratch what needs to get done because, honestly, my brain is fried. Im going on like 4 hours of sleep and I have a migraine.

 

Hoping to get done:

shower,/dress

laundry

make breakfast:biscuits and scrambled eggs..

dishes

wipe down sinks

clean microwave

clean out fridge

clean stove top

run self clean on the oven

put chairs back where the belong

sweep/mop floor

wipe down table/chairs

vacuum living room (the kids did an "art project" involved torn up paper, they cleaned most of it up but it needs a once over)

put the light cover back on the light in the kitchen

clean off the top of the fridge

put the carpet cleaner into the storage room

finish picking up and vacuuming the hall

clean hall bath

vacuum girls room

clean up my room

clean under/behind bed

make a list of what we need for the rest of the week and go food shopping

mow front yard if it doesn't start pouring- its pouring, Ill try again tomorrow

 

That is probably more than will get done but Ill work on that :) Who knows, it might get done!

I got some stuff done, but the house doesn't look any better. Sometimes it gets messier while it gets cleaner, if that makes any sense. I didn't get to mop, but I did get some painting done, so that's a plus. Hopefully I will finish painting in time for my son's highschool gaduation.

The mutt is making me miss my old dog actually. I didn't want to rehome him in the first place (hes only the second animal Ive ever cried over, the first was a cat I had for 14 years that was hit and killed when I was in boot camp) but between having a place to live and a dog there was only one real choice.. I know the mutt that found us (honestly, animals find me.. I swear they do) had to have been someones pet. He knows some commands (sit and down for example), doesn't potty inside, doesn't mind being brushed etc. I did get him to a vet and hes about 20 lbs under what he should be, has a severe flea issue, worms and needed to be vaccinated. The vet says hes still a pup (probably between 4-8 months) from the look of his teeth (still almost all puppy teeth) and is probably a mix of St Bernard and something else.I told my hubby no matter what we decide Im not rehoming him until hes worm and flea free, fixed and been to obedience classes.. By then Im sure the kids/DH will convince me to keep him. I just really don't WANT another dog, I just couldn't leave him out in the rain starving greensad.gif I did post on a few yardsale type message boards from around town and posted a couple of flyers at the local stores but given the state the dog in and the fact he didn't have a collar on, Im not holding my breath.

 

So, today has been an "off" day.. You know one of those that you can hardly get yourself to do anything.. I did:

- Do 5 loads laundry

- prep work for 2 Shepards pies for tomorrow (one for us, one to drop off to someone who needs a meal)

- put away the 6-7 loads of laundry that were in the living room

- pull out the rest of the laundry that needs to get washed

- organize some of the storage room

-made 15 bean soup and cheese biscuits for dinner

 

Between tonight, tomorrow and Friday morning (hubby comes home Friday night) I need to:

- make the two Shepard's pie, freeze one and one for Friday's dinner

- make 4 loaves of bread (1 to drop off, 3 for us)

- make a double batch of choc chip cookies, freeze half

- make a salad

- make peanut butter muffins (hubby's favorite!)

- clean up the kitchen sinks, top of fridge, dryer and washer

- finish catching up on laundry!!!

- clear off/wipe down table

- pick up everything off the floor and sweep/mop

- put the couch back together

- vacuum living room

- clean up hall

- put carpet cleaner into shed (I mean it this time orngbiggrin.gif)

- vacuum hall

- strip girls beds, wash linens, remake beds

- vacuum girls room

- clean up the toys that are laying around the playroom

-vacuum playroom

- clean under/behind my bed

-straighten bookcases in master bedroom

- pick up everything off of floor

- vacuum

-clean master bathroom

-change litter box

- bathe the mutt (should probably think of a better name for him as well, mutt isn't to nice)

- clean his ears, he has ear mites on top of fleas/worms

- sweep/mop master bathroom

-clean hall bath

-sweep/mop hall bath

-finish scarf and beanie Im working on

-finish making curtains

-defrost meat for Saturday and Sundays dinners

-meal plan until the 15th and make shopping lists (I need a few bulk items, like flour, and some stuff from the grocery store)

 

Think that is about it that I can think of. Its a do-able list if I stick to it and don't have another "I don't want to" day orngbiggrin.gif I did decide against doing any yard/outside work. First its been pouring and it still looks nasty outside and second I don't think I could physically handle it.

So the lady I was suppose to bring meals has family in town and decided she didn't need the meals.. Would have been nice to know prior to the morning of.. I, also, just got an e-mail from my brother that my father is in the hospital so I have a feeling today isn't going to be to productive anyway. Going to try to get some stuff done and keep my mind off of things.
