The reason I'm rushing is because I have Veronica's kids over again today, they'll be here in an hour and I still want to mop my floors and vacuum the living room. I could have done it yesterday but I was out getting groceries. (I always have an excuse, so don't be surprised lol).
After friday, I have to tell you that I'm preparing myself. I have a FULL pot of coffee waiting for me, and I'm going to eat a big breakfast just so I have the strength to chase after the little one. Yes, I know I know, I'm sure a lot of the SAHM's with more than two kids are probably pointing and snickering at me from the corner, but hey, yeah you back there......we're not all equal and what works for one doesn't for the other right? *hats off to all the moms who have more than two kids*
You have NOW become part of my Hero List.....which includes, soldiers, firefighters, mother's juggling career's, single mothers, oh the list goes and on, don't you feel part of a special thing???
After the kids leave today, I have to get my house cleaned and ready for the family coming in tomorrow. It's not that I live in filth, I don't, and for the most part my house is always clean, but you all understand how it is when family comes to visit, you want things to be nice and make a good impression (whatever that means). So I have a running list of things to do from about 4pm onwards....guess I'll be going to bed late tonight.
While talking to Sarah aka Mrs Blythe, via her comments, I told her that I would share with her the story of how hubby and I met. Some of you already know, but for the others that don't and are interested or curious, just go read this post I made a while ago. Who knows, I may actually shock some of you LOL
For all you Meal Planners or wannabe Meal Planners, you have to go on over to Organizing Junkie's today. She's starting a new feature (which I'm also going to be joining) called Menu Plan Monday in which we all post our menus for that week. I think it's a great idea and will help the beginner MP (meal planners) get started.
Talking about meals, I posted my menus for the next two weeks, over at my food blog "Full Bellies", there's also some new recipes posted for things like "Tres Leches Cake" and "Breakfast Casserole" etc.
Go on, what are you waiting for, get over there and see if you find something to your taste. :)
Ha! You know what I just realized? That no matter how early I start my blog, it still takes me about 2 hours to get this much written....I had no idea that I had to stop so many times LOL
No wonder there's days I sit down and draw a complete blank.....DUH!!!
I have a HUGE to do list today. Wanna see it, hmmm, wanna feel better about your day? I'll even let you sit there and giggle, go ahead and shake your head too and say "poor girl is delirious thinking she can do all that in one day". :)
Steam clean carpets (ok Emily, you can stop laughing at me now lol)
Run to recycle center to drop off boxes and other trash
Run by Housing office (LOL is all I say)
Return books to library
Run to store to get items I didn't pick up at Walmart
Clean upstairs and downstairs bathroom
You know I could go on, but I'm nauseated just looking it at right now.....especially since I know I have to get all this done AFTER 4 pm. I'm lucky the housing office and the library are still open at that time. Alright, I really have to get going, the kids aren't here yet, so I guess I am going to shift things a bit and get some of my TO DO list done right now. Why save it for later if I can save it for next year right? HA!!! I'm just kidding........why save for later what you can do now.
Have a beautiful day everyone :) Hugs all around, and here ya go, some coffee to keep you happy while you go blog hopping around. Say hi from me will ya....don't think I'll have a chance to do it myself today :(
