Busy and productive Saturday

Sometimes you just need to stay home and get things done. I have been neglecting housework for a while now.  A long while. But I buckled down and cleaned my range top--just in time for busy holiday cooking. It'SO shiney!!!!!

And i scrubbed some really dirty bathrooms.

And i prepared three guest rooms, re-arranging an extra twin mattress Mike got last month, sorting toys and some sewing and storage stuff. Will I ever make another denim quilt from all those old jeans? I sure hope so!

Swept and scrubbed the kitchen floor and cleaned the kitchen window over the sink (and the screen) . I can see outside now!

Did all the dishes, including all those hand-wash things that get ignored

Laundry. All of it. And the dryer conked out at the end.

Vacuumed the stairs thoroughly, and the rest of the carpet on main floor

Had a nice long visit with Katie on the phone

Paid some bills, read and sorted through paperwork. A lot of paper.

Ran one errand to Deseret Book (in sweats, wearing no makeup and they were so busy and crowded... oh well)

Ran a second errand and gave Eric a lift home from a Suzuki rehearsal.

And I have a list TWICE (or thrice ...or quadruple) that long of things I did NOT accomplish, but I wanted to focus on what I DID get done for a change.

And I was tired....but felt pretty darn good about a day well spent. They are few and far between.

Oh, and I started thinking about Christmas since I leave for Guam in TWO WEEKS and maybe Katie's before then. 《Gulp!》
