    The men came and installed the carpet today after losing the basement to Irene, so we've started moving things back down and out of the living areas! Whoo-hoo!

    so today instead of cleaning out the van, I got rid of a huge bag of clothes, a bag of books we no longer use, and a huge box of toys and board games the kids no longer play with.

    So today was maintenance. Ran swiffer with micro fiber cloth over the floors. How they got so dirty overnight I can not tell you. Must be all the males around here. Kept up with dishes, wiped down counters, put something away or threw away every time I moved from room to room.

    Tonight will add the hand blown glass ornaments to the tree. These were the ones I would not allow the boys to hang yesterday, just too fragile.

    Will clean 1/8 th of the bathroom walls tonight.

    I finally cleaned off the counter where the Christmas "village" will be displayed. (Only two houses so far, but you have to start somewhere, right?)

    Today I cleaned one corner of DS's bedroom. I also was able to pack up one box of stuff that needs to go into storage.

    I didn't get much done today. I put some things away from the kitchen island but still have more to do. I got distracted by The Sweater and spent most of the day working on that.

    So today's goal of clearing off the island will have to roll over to tomorrow, and it might not get done then. I'm getting close to finishing the second sleeve of The Sweater and really want to get that done tomorrow, and it'll take me a while.

    I AM WORKING TOO HARD!

    I cleaned the baseboards in my kitchen, dining area, hallway and main bathroom. Then I mopped those areas. My back is killing me and my right shoulder hurts. I think I need the heating pad.

    My dh cleaned out the oven, do ya believe that?! Way to go dh.

    Back from Kauai and now jumping in!! Mahalo for starting this MH - and love the Christmas houses!!

    Today I was going to clean a pile of stuff next to the ship model, but since friends just called and said that they were coming by soon, I changed it to clean off the couch - and put what's on it either away or in the trash.

    I also need to work on a Christmas craft each day and today I am going to finish my Winter tags for a swap!!
