What to Do on a Day off....

D took the kiddos to the World of Wheels today. I had almost the whole day to myself. "What did I do?" you ask. Well...
  • Picked up our veggies at 7:30 and headed to the grocery store
  • Shopped for our weekly groceries
  • Sorted kid's clothes, baby diapers, and baby carriers assessing what we need versus have and organized it all in the kiddos' closet
  • Cleaned and organized the linen closet (purged old light bulbs, sheets and crib linens)
  • Cleaned and organized my closet (all maternity clothes actually hung up; running and workout clothes sorted/folded; sweaters/sweatshirts no longer look like they will fall at any minute)

  • Washed all laundry including bed linens
  • Made the beds
  • Folded and PUT AWAY all laundry
  • Sorted craft supplies and stowed them in their new home on the buffet
  • Sorted cookbooks which had been on buffet - purging those never used and stowing them in their new home on the bottom shelf of said buffet
  • Cleaned out, rearranged and updated the pantry
  • Cleaned master and hallway bathrooms
I think that is it. No crafting of any sort was accomplished. The floors still need to be swept/mopped and the place vacuumed. I would love to have another day to spend in the den/sewing room, however I am so glad to have accomplished what I did. My house used to be cleaner and more organized. Now time is better spent doing other things. As my grandmother told my mom, "Cleaning and scrubbing can wait 'til tomorrow, for babies grow up we've learned to our sorrow. So quiet down cobwebs; dust go to sleep, I'm rocking my babies and baies don't keep."

I almost forgot. I also watched disc 6 from 24: Season 6. Something has to get you through all that work.

Nesting? Is it time for that yet?

I think it is more in line with Spring cleaning. My house is such a mess of disorganization that it had to be done. I am the girl that used to hang her clothing by color and type BC(before children)

and on certain color hangers or was it all white hangers all items facing the same direction :P

You put me too shame! My house is falling around me and my newborns feet.

Are you sure it isn't nesting? It sounds like it to me, that or you are trying to get very tired but you will soon need all that rest so take it easy at some point.
