Phew!

I feel so good about what I accomplished this weekend. Between Friday and today I managed to check the following items off of my list:
  • raked the front yard
  • swept and despiderwebbed the front porch
  • cleaned the kitchen - twice
  • broke down my daughter's crib and moved it to the basement
  • helped both children clean their bedrooms
  • put new sheets both kids' beds
  • washed, folded and put away eight loads of laundry
  • sorted and matched lots of socks in the "orphan basket"
  • washed and organized all the kids hats and mittens and then packed the heavy ones away in the basement
  • packed away my winter coat, snow pants and boots in the basement
  • reinstalled the shower curtain in the kids' bathroom after an unfortunate incident with a broken bottle of blue plaque dying stuff
  • organized, dusted, swept / vacuumed and washed the windows in the dining room and the entry way
  • vacuumed the stairs
  • took apart and cleaned our little Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner
  • scooped the cat's litter box
  • made oatmeal banana cookies
I still have a pile of papers to grade, but I needed a break...

I'm most impressed, you must be very pleased with yourself if a little exhausted. Spring is such a beautiful time of year you just want everything to be at its best.

Marcia said...

You call that a break???? I need to take a "break" like that. I woke up to snow on the ground this a.m.! My husband did the raking, I did pack away some Winter things. He said Winter wasn't over yet...

I need a day off just to recover from reading that list. WOW! Congrats to you! Now can you come do it at my house? It is sunny and 78 degrees if that makes it more tempting!?

Oh my goodness! I love your blog and all your Egypt posts. I spent four months living in the middle east, and your photos make me homesick for baba ghanoush, Cairo, and bartering for things at markets...beautiful photos!
