It is beautiful here in Central NY today :). The sun is shining and it's warmer than yesterday. All I have done today is spent an hour or so cleaning up the mess on my balcony. Squirrels dug through my balcony garden last night and dumped potting soil all over and destroyed most of my young plants I am growing from seeds. I swept up the dirt, and salvaged what I could and replanted my tiny plants and then watered them all. Now I need to figure out how to put a stop to the squirrels.
The rest of today:
Make the bed
Unload and then load the dishwasher back up
Feed/water the kitties
Clean the kitty litter
straighten up around the apartment (maybe vacuum)
Go to the post office
Read and enjoy the sunshine on the balcony
Make dinner and dessert
Volunteer at the Cat Shelter

Wow, I thought I was so busy, lol. It's nothing compared to you ladies. Of course, I'm a little slower than usual these days:) Dd is home sick as she was up all night sick so I was up all night and I'm dragging. We're in the middle of moving right now so I'm sure you can only imagine what everything looks like here.

So far:

Scrubbed down every cupboard, wall, stove, microwave in kitchen
Scrubbed down downstairs bathroom
Scrubbed hallway baseboard and scuff marks (surprisingly I won this battle)
Got two children fed lunch (hoping they both keep it down, lol)
Ordered something we need (I know...that's such a challenge)
Planned out dinner (didn't think spaghetti would go over well with a stomach bug in the house so had to rethink it)
Dressed ds, but not so what's the point

Still have to:

Pack at least a couple of boxes
Finish clearing the kitchen counter and wipe down
sweep the cats' hallway as they have litter everywhere somehow
make a few calls about possible rentals
Get mentally organized so I can face all that's coming
would like to change an upcoming appt but doubt that'll happen
take a nap (I'm useless if I'm not properly rested so after being up all night I'm going to rest when AJ does)
put away clean laundry and start the next several loads....I detest laundry

It has been beautiful here today! I kept busy - trying to clean the terrace, cleaned alot of the outdoor furniture, moved some more plants out.I also cleaned the grill and bought some propane so we can cook out for Memorial Day weekend.Plus laundry and regular chores. Also stopped by my sisters, she helped with an auction and she gave me a potpurri warmer and lots of fitness books in perfect shape! It was a good day.
