Ooh! Maybe I can find some time to bake brownies tomorrow...
DH gets home tomorrow, lateish--I'm planning for around 8PM or so, although on no solid evidence.
I'm currently making a list of all the stuff I have to get done before he returns:
--Finish painting the skirting boards in the baby's room
--Finish painting the linen closet door in the hallway
--Finish the walls, cornices and skirting boards in the living room (most major task)
--Glue down all the bits of wallpaper which came up when I ripped the masking tape off the walls, mutter mutter
--Clear the drop cloths, empty buckets of paint etc from the baby's room
--Move the bassinette into the baby's room (exciting!).
--Make chewy coconut slice for DH to take to work the next day
--Freeze curried pumpkin soup (an experiment currently simmering on the stove)
--Make sure dishwasher is empty
--Bring in laundry; do wash if sunny
--Clean drips of paint off hardwood floors
--Attach new toilet seat (I have a degree, I should be able to figure out how to attach a seat to a toilet, right? You'd think...).
And that's only the stuff that *has* to be done!
There's other stuff I'd like
to get done--making and freezing some spinach and ricotta lasagna, and some cream of spinach soup with the leftover spinach--making bread--making a yummy dessert for DH--painting the insides of the drawers for the baby's chest of drawers--and so on. But looking at the list above, that just might not happen! I might be babysitting two of my little sisters in the afternoon, as well. I'll put them to work if I do--muahahaha.
*sigh* It's late, I should really go to bed to prepare for all this upcoming activity! Mother has developed an annoying habit of asking over the phone 'What are you doing today?', and when I say 'I have to finish painting the baby's room, make some devilled sausages and some beef stew, wash down the walls in the living room and mask off the cornices', she'll say 'Oh well, take it easy'. Kinda not feasible, Mum!
