This afternoon when I wrote my little “random post” I mentioned a few items that I needed to accomplish. I am now here a mere 7ish hours later to say that I accomplished pretty much everything and even added a few things.
Because someday I am going to wish that I wrote some of these things out I am going to do just that. Oh, and there are pictures … lots of pictures. Once I decided to post everything I did, I was oddly much more motivated. I might just need to make that a regular thing. But really, how many pictures would a person need to see of my clean kitchen.
Even though I didn’t mop my floors and didn’t get a stack of buckets washed for when we tap the trees and make syrup I did accomplish the following.
I made 4 batches of pizza dough which made 8 pizzas.
They are all partially baked and ready for sauce and cheese.
There may or may not be two crusts missing salt. I honestly have no idea if I added it or forgot it. Oops.
Everything is all packed and ready to go in the fridge. 8 crusts, a gallon of shredded cheese, and 2 quarts of pizza sauce. Should be more than enough!
The little people were fed snack and dinner.
Dinner may or may not have been pizza and cheerios. I won’t tell. My picture ended up with some pretty red eyes on that pretty little girl and so I had to go with a black and white shot. Since Miss Evelyn rarely looks at the camera and smiles I used it anyway. Cuties.
Two loads of laundry were washed, dried, and folded.
Notice that the bed is made! I don’t love to make the bed but Loren prefers it made and well, it’s really the least I can do for the man I love and the man who loves me back. Plus, it’s the little things that people appreciate like that right?
Another side note … I started putting my clean laundry on the bed because it always gets folded that way. Smart huh? No more baskets of clean and extra wrinkled clothes around here. I even go as far as to put the baskets back in the laundry room so that I am not tempted to toss unfolded clothes in it when the sun has set. I’ll admit though that there have been a few times that I forget about the laundry and we stand there folding and folding until it’s all done and we can sleep.
There may or may not be a set of king size sheets purposely left out of this shot because I folded them terribly and didn’t really have the time to make them nice. I won’t tell.
Also, in the middle of laundry I changed the battery in the smoke detector in the basement. Just thought you would like to know. I thought I heard a beeping for a day or so. Loren thought I was crazy … apparently he was wrong.
The little people went to bed freshly bathed with clean sheets, clean blankets, the toys put away and the carpet vacuumed. I know right? I told ya, I even amazed myself tonight.
And I am not even done.
I created, printed, cut, and taped on new labels for the party favors.
They are simple, but cute. And most importantly … done!
The kitchen …
CLEAN! I love a clean kitchen, just sayin’.
And finally, I am all packed for tomorrow. I will just need to load the littles and the “stuff” in the van and we will be ready.
Now you will have to excuse me, I am tired. Really really tired.
