Summer cleaning projects...

"She watches over the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness."

I have been working on a list of things I want to get deep cleaned this summer and now since it is August guess I better get working on some of them.
We are having a small get together for our son-in-laws birthday this coming Saturday. This week I want to work on the hallway bathroom. I finally got all the new rugs and such for in there but don't want to put anything new in until I get all the dirt out :). No it isnt' that dirty but I do want to give the bathroom a good cleaning before Saturday. I love the color of the new carpets and will certainly take a picture after it is all done.

Yesterday was a not so good day for me and today hasn't been that much better. I just dont' feel well. all I did yesterday was vacuum and mop the entire living room, moved all the furniture and also cleaned the blinds and windows, so it was a busy day even though I wasn't feeling that great. I also for some reason was really missing my dad and then pile on top of that the fact that Mattie is home in Texas but still has not called nor has Sara called to let me know he/they are doing okay. I look at it this way if it were the other way around wouldn't Sara want me to have Mattie call her and tell her he is okay. They don't seem to think of much but themselves and that is very hard on a Mom.

I did manage to crochet 4 dishcloths yesterday as most of the day I was just sitting around. I plan on making some cinnamon rolls tomorrow, I find if I get everything ready the night before and set out on the counter it makes me think of doing it better.

Roger is working late tonight as he did last night so he won't be home until around 8pm wich is lousy! He basically gets home, eats something sits down and relaxes for a few minutes then it's bedtime...I don't know how he does it everyday.

  1. Hey Joann, you have been busy! I am trying to organize my life a bit lately. I started with a modified version of a day planner, sort of like the one you have shown us before. I brought home some boxes from work last night to start cleaning up and organizing... maybe soon I'll get there! About Mattie... I have learned that boys aren't as sensitive to their moms as girls!! My son is sometimes totally blown away when I have my pity parties and pout because I don't see him or hear from him enough. I think they think that we should assume "no news is good news"... LOL. After I threw my hissy fit and hurt everyone's feelings (bad mom), I have to say things have gotten much better. :o) I don't advocate throwing a fit or anything... LOL... but it worked for me. I am pretty sure I am going through "the change" and my family just blames all my bad behavior on that. Let's see... I should be able to use that one for a few more years, right??? I hope you hear from him soon!

  2. It surely sounds like you have been one busy little bee, and that's a good thing! When my neck and shoulder heal, I plan on doing some serious cleaning and organizing myself.

    Nice blog. :)
