ADF, Day 4: WEEEEEEKENNNNND!

It’s Friday, but with my new shifted schedule I have hit my first ADF Weekend! 🙂  I’m walking as I type this, so I’m being good.. but today is also, as I promised my kids, Cookie Day… so after I’m done being good I am off to be very bad.  I’ll be making batches of sugar cookies, snickerdoodles, almond pound cake and maybe — dare I say it? — Chex mix!

Cleaning, Day 7: Ch-ch-Changes….

Bed, check.  Kitchen, check.  So far, so good.

I’m thinking a lot about changes today.

Cleaning, Day 6: Almost Perfect, But Not Quite…

Andy came back today.  I managed to get the ground floor looking decent, but upstairs still needed work.  That’s okay; Andy probably barely notices anyway.  I did get the master bedroom straightened up and looking swell, so that’s probably all that matters.  That’s the sort of thing he notices, anyway.

Cleaning, Day 2: Sparkle, Sparkle!

Well, so far so good.  As I write this, my bed is made, my room is straightened up and my kitchen is nice and clean.  I did a good job of staying on top of the kitchen mess, especially, and made sure to put everything away right away.  I really am sort of childish about that sort of thing, and I tend to just make a big mess and leave it when I’m cooking.   This would be a good habit to break.

Lent, Day 42: Narrow Garage

Yet another reminder of the fact that losing weight also means losing actual size and girth.   Andy cleaned out the garage this past weekend, which meant a lot of the stuff that had been piled up on ‘my side’ (or at least, the side where we park the van, which is the car I usually drive) was moved out and disposed of.

Lent, Day 27: Spa in Sight…

You know, yesterday I meant to elaborate on this in the Weight Check post for this week, and realize I never did.

I’m with 10 pounds of my Spa Goal!

Exercise+, Day 19: Looking Down the Barrel

Today was another good day, I’m happy to report.  When I got up this morning (which was around 7:30 am), I found that Zack had already been up for an hour and was through most of his lessons.  He actually finished everything by noon.   I was only TOO THRILLED to release him on his own recognissance for the rest of the day.   After all, being done with one’s schoolwork by by  noon is supposed to be one of the joys of homeschooling: you don’t have to wait for the rest of the class to finish their work before you can move onto the next thing. 😉

And I, in turn, was equally industrious.  I did three loads of laundry, three loads of dishes (No, I’m not kidding… and the dishes weren’t even piled up to start with; we just go through a LOT of dishes around here.)  I got dinner made and in the oven on time, and I even made pudding for the kids for dessert.  As if to underscore our good day, the weather cheered up to a balmy 50 degrees, and promises to be even better tomorrow.  Mmmm!
