Busy as a Bee
Saturday, August 20, 2016
Right now my aunt is doing grocery shopping while Im doing the dishes and laundry. After lunch the TV is going to music for my grandma while we head to the back room. There is so much that I want to get done today so that tomorrow we can just relax and plan out the rest of the week and weekends.
Monday and Tuesday we are going to have good weather so those days are for the yard. Cutting the grass, clean up the edges (theres a lot), finally finish the front flower bed (weed and mulch), weed rose bed, clean up the roses, re-weed tree stump bed (the dead wood plus all the rain is feeding the weeds like crazy), and I have to tackle the one bed I havent touched all summer. The side bed along the house. The weeds in the back corner of that bed is taller than me. Sounds terrible but this summer has been horrible.
The rest of the week I want to get the dinning room ready for painting Labor Day weekend. Im going to have the girls my usual days (29 - 31) and then on the 1st I get them at 10am and keep them till the next day till about 6/630pm. Their parents are going out of town for yet another concert. Earlier this week she asked me of I knew I was going to have them over night on Friday as well and I just gave her a look. She originally told me Thursday and Friday over night. So to me thats 2 days and 1 night. Luckily her mom is going to pick them up and head out to our grandparents place for the weekend. So anyways, this is why I want to get things done this week since I will have zero time next week.
I want the yard work to be all caught up in September so that in October I do the usual fall work ONLY. Every chance that I get I need to be out in the yard.
Also this Fall I am going to change my life. Right now my life revolves around my grandma. I have no problem with taking care of her, I just need to work around things. We are going to put her back on her sleeping meds so that she is sleepy come 9 because we need to stop getting to sleep at midnight and waking up at 530. So with us getting better sleep I will have more energy for things. Im working on an exercise plan for the gym and here at home. I also want to have just an hour a day for me. While the girls are napping Im going to sit at the dining room table and write, look up meals, research for my stories, or color in my adult books.
The first half of 2016 was shot, so the second half needs to be great!
