4 Weeks To A More Organized Home: Day 10

Today was a very crazy and hectic day around my house.  I've hardly been home all day, actually.  I got up this morning and awaited my assignment from Money Saving Mom, not knowing how busy my day would be.

Here's what was on her list for today:

--Get dressed in something that makes you feel great.
--Sit down with a cup of coffee or tea, refer to your list of weekly goals, andmake a list of no more than 5-7 specific things you want to accomplish today.
--Complete your morning routine.
--Dust all ceiling fans and clean all light fixtures in your house. Check for burned out light bulbs and replace.Set the timer for at least 15 minutes and do something you really enjoy and that relaxes and rejuvenates you. If you need ideas, here are a few: read, write, call a friend, pray, exercise, bake, play with your children, laugh with your husband, stop by the bookstore and browse the book selection, work in the garden, or take a nap! Take some time to just stop and enjoy life today!

Well, I think I can safely say I did NOT stop and enjoy life today.  I don't think I ever stopped, in fact.   I did get my light fixtures cleaned this morning after I put my daughter on the bus.  My MIL and SIL were both still asleep, so I plopped the 2 year old in front of PBS (yes, I did!) and grabbed a wash cloth and started wiping fans.   The only ones I did not get to the were light fixtures in my kitchen that require screwdrivers to remove, but I will ask my husband to get those down for me this weekend.  

Then they woke up, and my MIL wasn't feeling well.  She far away from home and in poor health in general, so she thought she should see a doctor.  The office told her they weren't busy and she should just come in.  When we got there....they were busy!  We waited until we had to leave so I could grab some lunch before heading to my dentist appt!

I got home in time to get my oldest off the bus, chat with her for a bit, and then begin making dinner.   After dinner, we went to Target to basically browse clearance.  (That's something I really enjoy...but not so much with two small children out past their bedtime!  --I will say they were very well behaved, though!)

We *just* made it home (10pm and my girls are still awake but their daddy just got home from work, too so they are hanging out with him), and I am beat!  I intend to go have a nice relaxing bath and get a good night's rest!

My MIL said she was impressed how I was keeping up with my house, though  (In the past she's been impressed that I didn't let things like a dirty house bother me LOL)  Normally after having such a busy day, the amount of housework still remaining to be done would be overwhelming to me, but I really don't feel that way at all today.  I have this challenge to thank for that, I believe!
