Slow but steady wins the race? So I'm having a steady saturday. My race is to get the house cleaned up and all my weekend chores done today so I can spend tommorrow with my sisters working on grandmas place.

We've got great weather here in the mid 60s and clear so DH is out back with his best buddy building a new gazebo, old one died. And I'm busy doing my thing inside.

Hope everyone has a beauitful weekend.

I'll be doing a complete house cleaning today. It is starting to look like a tornado went through here.

Hi Laurie....

It's ok out today, I think it's in the 50's but not bad for winter, lol It's not windy so it's perfect.

I will be doing some de-cluttering today and get some bags of toys and clothes off to the thrift store drop boxes in the area, then just straightening up the house a bit.

Today is cleanup day here. We have some laundry to do, and a couple of boxes that are ready to go into storage. It also looks like the clutter monster has paid us a visit, so I will be spending some time straightening up.

Have a great day everyone!

I have been doing some online shopping for Christmas. I am getting to wear I don't like to shop in the crowds. It is so easy to sit here and do it. I am using my CC, but I have the cash money saved up, so I will pay it when the bill comes in. I PROMISE!

Nice cool day here and hubby is working so spending the day inside piddling around on the computer for a bit and then I will cook an early dinner. I washed and dried all of the bed linens this morning, and I still have to make the beds and then mop up the boot tracks that my dear 17 yr. old nephew made across my clean hardwood floors in the kitchen earlier today. Arrrrg! I just found them or I would have made him clean them up. Wait till I see him again, LOL. He and my BIL are setting up a hog trap at the front of our property to catch a wild hog that thinks he owns the place. Crazy thing comes charging out of the woods when you come or go in the mornings. Scared me silly when I took DD to school yesterday morning. This morning at 4:30 he charged at hubby as he left for work. Stupid hog actually hit the front left tire, but it didn't do any damage to hubby's truck or the hog. Hubby got a good look at him this morning cause collision kind of stunned him I guess and hubby says he has tusks, so better we trap him and get him out of here before he hurts someone or does damage to one of the vehicles.

LOL, I told hubby I wouldn't take DD to school until hog is outta here. I would hate to have to write an excuse note to her school saying she missed a day because we were held hostage by a crazed porker!

There's never a dull moment when you live in the country!

DH had to go in to work today and I'm hoping he'll be back soon. I'm planning on going with him to Best Buy and get myself a digital camera, plus going out to eat (I really want Chinese). Plus, since DH has had class or worked late all night this week, he hasn't had any father-son bonding time. That's on the agenda for today.

While I'm hanging around the house, I'm giving myself a manicure, playing with DS, and I tried to get a hair appointment for today - they had no room, so I'll be going on Tuesday. I also caught up with all of the emailed surveys I didn't get to this week.

I spent most of the day cleaning since 8:00 am. I am having company for Thanksgiving and since I am working Mon and Tues I thought I would start now! I cleaned for 6 hours straight so it is time for a break!
