Hope you get your *stuff* done tonight!

Last night I got home from work and had about 90 minutes until I needed to leave for my Walking class. I usually veg all evening but I was determined to get a few things done. I washed the kitchen floor, emptied the dishwasher, put dirty dishes in, and cleaned both bathroom sinks and toilets....had dinner and left. I was exhausted when I got home and went to bed at 9:00.

Tonight Scott will not get home until super late (after I'm in bed) and I want to wrap his birthday present, do at least 1 load of laundry, type up some Love messages and hide them in balloons for his birthday, and get a few other surprises ready.....Hope I get all that done. I work from 8-5 tonight.

The only thing to do today is polish off the last of the laundry. I'm almost caught up from dd's extra laundry from the weekend.

I may or may not go w/ dh on his errand running today. He had the day off, he usually spends half of it running around doing things he didn't have time for during the week. Either way, we have to wait for the freezing rain to stop before we can go anywhere. It's slick out there!

If I go with him, I'll be stopping at the commissary for a couple of things. Then after we pick the kids up from school we are taking them to the mall so they can spend the last of their Christmas money. I'm kind of craving some Auntie Anne's pretzel sticks :popcorn:

Still on strike so another day of not doing anything as far as cleaning, cooking, etc....

One of my friends is coming over at some point today with her baby (7 month old) for a visit.

My week is so messed up, I keep thinkng it is Wednesday. Boy, it's going to be a long week for me.

I have 2 homes to clean today then it is home to make dinner and more decluttering! I'm gonna need some more boxes! My goal is to clear off my baker's stand so I have a place to serve a buffet. The difficulty is finding room for the toaster oven and the set of pots and pans that are not used often.

Going to do a bit of cleaning the family room today. It's the room that collects the most dog hair. :bang::va:

THEN, I'm going to stop and get a few things for my Dad, and go to his apt. and clean all of IT.

I'll be ready for an easy-to-make dinner. Think I'll do Turkey burritos.

I'm not working today and it's beautiful outside, well it's in the 40's

Suppose to be a blizzard tomorrow so i'm washing our sheets and blankets and getting the house spotless

I stopped at the store after dropping my daughter off at school. I had $4 and needed milk and something else for my oldest to drink. I ran into my mom in the store and she bought me some groceries, i'm so happy and thankful.

I only had enough gas to take my daughter to and from school 4 days this week so I was really hoping to get a snow day this week but I put that $4 in gas so i'm all set until I get paid.

I'm very happy today.

It's My Birthday

I brought DD to school
Got a haircut - gift from me
Got my eyebrows waxed - gift from the Old Man

Right now I am at the ex's house, playing nursemaid.

Later I need to get DD from school
Go home take a bubble bath and get in my jammies
Old Man and DD are making me blueberry pancakes for dinner

I'll update my blog before I go to bed.

Pretty easy day for me... except dealing with the ex... if you think a sick hubby can be whiny, try an ex-hubby who has a cast from shoulder to fingertips :lol:
