I don't have a whole lot planned for the day. It's my sweetie's birthday, so we'll be going over to my grandparents' house for pizza and cake to celebrate. Other than that:

- unload dishwasher
- pick up around the apt.
- go get marriage certificate
- maybe watch a movie
- nap
- work at 11pm

Have a great (well, as good as they get) Monday everyone.

I worked last night and work again tonight so I won't get much done in the way of housework. I plan to toss a load of laundry in and get the laundry room and kitchen swept and mopped and then to bed and then I will run by the library on my way to work.

Have a great day everyone.

Good Morning everyone. I was up at 4am with dh then fell back asleep until I thought I was dreaming because i heard birds chirping and then I got up to go look out the back patio door and it wasnt a dream, there were birds on the trees chirping a sign for me that winter is done and spring is on its way.
So I stayed up and so far have mopped the floors and vaccummed the bedrooms. Done laundry, fed the critters, got son up for college and cleaned bathrooms.
Today is bill day, so will be sitting down to write what will seem like a gazillion checks for the medical and ordinary bills. I had a quicken program on my computer that I didn't realize was there and I have been tracking everything. I feel so much better about things.

You ladies have a wonderful day.

Just a few stubborn snow flurries this morning. Should be up to 43 this afternoon. Another lovely work week beginning (yes - sarcasm). I have a job interview this afternoon after work so I am in a pretty good mood (another one tomorrow morning).
Dinner is in the crockpot this morning so no matter when the interview is over (I am guessing 5:30 or 6 pm- starts at 4:30) dinner is ready when the kids get hungry.
I need to fold the white clothes that I hung up yesterday and wash/hang a load of darks.
Finals are this week so I need to study
Catbox needs to be scooped
Dishes will need to be switched out
Need to vac the common areas (both kids cleaned their rooms this weekend- miracles!)
Happy Monday everyone!

I am doing my usual. Watching the three three year olds. It is great weather here in GA. So the boys got the much needed fresh air they have been missing. Made them more crazy when we came in, but they were hungry and I think an early bedtime is in the works.. I hope.
Everyone have a nice day.

PLAY DAY! I have some dishes to wash, then -- who cares about the floors? Or anything else?

Quilting!

A great (so far) sci fi novel that I couldn't put down last night until the nocturnal cats made it plain that it was even way past THEIR bedtime and was I ever going to turn off the lights?

I'm a little chilly, but that's because I have all the windows open and I'm wearing light clothes and I'm barefooted. I could give in, I guess, and put some socks on, but it's wonderful to be "properly" dressed again!

I have split days off this week -- Mon/Thurs -- so I'm going to make the most of today, since tomorrow it's back to the grind.

I have made the bed, picked up the living room and kitchen. I need to organize my paperwork still and get a job search folder together. I am going to make a hamburger casserole for dinner and freeze the rest of the club pack into meal portions for the month. I am going to scrub the kitchen counters and sweep and mop the kitchen floor after dinner. I might vacuum the carpets this evening too. I am going to weed through my shoes and get rid of outdated ones or ones that I haven't worn in over a year.
