Home Sweet Home

It's hot!! And muggy. And around here you sweat just breathing. Did I mention I hate sweating? LOL.

I had a lot of work to do today so I got an early start. Gave the chinchillas a snack and spoon fed Reek. Spot cleaned the pet cages. Swept the floors. Spot cleaned the kitchen and bathroom. Fixed breakfast, unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher, did 2 loads of laundry. Went outside to do my outdoor chores - burned the trash, took out the compost and recyclables, fed the wildlife, swept the porches/patios/walks. Watered the plants. Cleaned out my purse. Made some calls for my husband and mailed some mail for him at the post office. Picked up a printer cartridge. Made myself a healthy lunch for a change and us a healthy supper. Hubby copied papers all evening for the trust.

I had little free time but it was nice to be home and during the week I can psych myself up for the weekend at my MILs.

My son will be home for 2 days and it will be nice to see him. What a life. LOL.

    I think you are the busiest person I know! Your life sounds like such a bustling, happy, love-filed one too.

    Enjoy the time with your son, and try not to work too hard (yeah, right) at your MIL's.

    lots of love,

    Sounds like another unbelievably busy day for you but at least it was at your house!!! It has to feel good to accomplish your own chores!! Tell Ian to enjoy his time off---and don't spend all his earnings! LOL Well, I was going to whine about feeling so tired but after reading your blog I will keep quiet!! LOL Still dealing with some stressors from dad and son (hoping the son one will be "resolved" in a week or so). Hope you have a great day today!!

    I think the life you chosen does not Look Like you hate to sweat. I would be sweating ALL THE TIME!

    You inspire me for sure. I remember living on a farm and it was not easy for those that tended to things needing to be done.

    YOU ROCK! Your whole family does

    Dear M it looks like there IS a light at the end of the tunnel. You have done so much work on this. I really hope it will be over very soon.
    Today sounded rather like the first blog I read about your little cabin in the woods. It will do very nice to be able to just chat again. HUGS, you are such a great Spark friend.

    HUGS from Pat in cool Maine. HUGS !! emoticon

    If your weren't so organized, this would be a nightmare; 'nuff said!


    I wish you didn't have to live your daily life like this, but it will pass. It HAS to. And you will be strong through it and amazing afterward.

    Frankly, I think you have a career in this. I so want you on my team when I need to clear out my MIL's place!

    (No laughing; I'm serious... hope you have been taking good notes!)
