Update: I have finished everything except mixing up the frosting, but I'm going to be working on that as soon as I finish this update. We were supposed to go have dinner with a couple from church tonight, but with this COLD snap, Daniel ended up not getting home until almost 8 o'clock, so we moved the date. Since we were planning to eat with them, I hadn't prepared anything for supper. We went up the road to a (new to us) Chinese Restaurant. It was very nice, very good food, and a little pricier than I was expecting! However, the plates were HUGE, so I brought about 1/2 of mine home to have later.
I'm very pleased with what all I got done today, it has made a huge difference in the overall appearance of the house, and the laundry mountain has gone down some :) I think I'm ready to start next week off on the right foot now :) Thanks to all of you who cheered me on today!!! You rock!
After feeling all day yesterday like I just wanted to sit down and bawl my eyes out, but not knowing why, it finally happened last night. After serious meltdown and a spaghetti-noodle-style conversation with - or more like at, since he mostly listened - Daniel trying to figure "it" (do we women ever really know what "it" is????) out and bawling my eyes out most of the time, he suggested that I really need to get back to doing my daily routines.
So here's today's list. It's not my normal Friday list, but it's what I've come up with that will give me some organization to what I do today and will let me get what I need to get done, done.
