Whirlwind Weekend

So much to do and so little time. We had an eventful Friday. The Kid got to go to Bunco since our babysitting plans fell through. She did great, loved the lasanga, and I won for most wins!

Saturday brought us what I had been dreading. Having to mow the yard. I think it was the 2nd or 3rd time I have had to push mow. Not a big fan. Of course, then both neighbors mowed their yards and mine still looks like a jungle. I also started deep-cleaning around the house. My way of cleaning is interesting to me, now that I realize what I am doing. As I go to put things away, if that room hasn't been cleaned yet, I just make a pile. This means that the last room to be cleaned is the worst. In this case, my office needs some work. Luckily, it's mosting just clutter and filing that needs to be done.

Watching the hoarding shows, usually kicks my butt into gear to get things done. B is totally a pack rat and I can recognize when I am holding on to things to long, which usually results in a power struggle to let things go. There are so many things in the garage and storage shed that should go down the road, but haven't yet. My big problem is I get things boxed and sacked up to take for donation and then they sit in the garage because I don't want to make lots of little trips. I am determined though, to get several of the boxes out of the garage before B gets back.

After some grocery shopping today, I finished up the dining room, packing up my sewing projects for a little while. We are expecting guests this week, so I figured we might want to use the table. But it was gorgeous this weekend, so we opened the windows and turned on the fans. It was such a welcome after all the cold weather and snow we have had.

The little mover and shaker has discovered the fireplace! She pulls herself up on the step and literally does push-ups on it. I have blocked it off with random items until I can find something better, but she just tries to push it all out of the way. She is so Ornery! She heads that way and then waits for me to say something to her before she keeps going. She is so proud of herself being able to pull up on it. I need to find some boxes or something for her to practice on before she knocks out some teeth.

Back to the grindstone tomorrow, but hopefully I will get some things finished up. I think all of us are looking forward to our half-day Fridays that will be starting soon. I am ready to hit the golf course and this weather if finally cooperating. Now just need to work out the time aspect.
