    Default Mellow Monday 9/29

    Well I've been up and going for a couple of hours already this morning but I am forcing myself to move at a lesisurely pace. I am going to try and really "smell the roses" on this vacation.

    So far:
    rolled in the hay
    (maybe TMI but I usually leave well before the house wakes up so my day never gets to start on a good note like that)
    made coffee
    started laundry
    got DH off to work
    DS#1 off to school
    Started sanding the spackle
    taking a break on the village

    To go: (maybe)
    ~The one thing that I picked for today to get done is sanding this first coat of spackle on the new kitchen wall ceiling. This is the only thing I'm going to hold myself to.
    ~Dinner

    Possibilites:
    ~chat some more on the Village
    ~finish laundry
    ~bake something
    ~grocery shop
    ~finish my book
    ~purge a drawer
    ~shop for living room furniture

    I'm looking foward to taking my time whistleing through the day. What's on your agenda????Hope everyone elses is looking up as well.

    I am not feeling that great today, so I am off to a slow start.
    Today I need to:
    Pack for our move next week
    Wash whites
    Take leftover yard sale items to Salvation Army
    Cook dinner
    Go to Bible study

    It is a short list, the first item will take all week. My DH is home this afternoon so I need to take advantage for him being here. He is also home tomorrow afternoon, but we need to go to Iowa City and clean out my office tomorrow. The drive time alone on that will be 90 minutes total.
