Ambitious Agenda

Last weekend, Berry came over with the kids, and the house was still a disaster area. Good reasons and bad excuses; no matter the cause, I haven't gotten the house "together" again.

So I promised Flar that when he gets back from Brazil (Tue 14 Sep), the house will be CLEAN.

I made a list for the weekend, some of which will stretch into the next week:
  1. Catch Up
    • Mail
    • Dishes
    • Paper
    • Laundry
    • Coupons
    • Tables
    • Quicken
    • Sinks/Toilets
  2. Clean House
    • Jacuzzi Room
    • Laundry Room
    • Kitchen/Pantry
    • Family Room
    • Dining Room
    • Library
    • Halls
    • Playroom
    • Bathrooms
    • Lincoln Room
    • Matt's Office
    • Bedrooms
    • Vacuum
    • Mop
  3. 3pm Sat take Tigger to T's house for a sleepover
  4. 11am Sun church service

Today, I managed to catch up on Mail, Dishes, Paper and Laundry; I also got the jacuzzi room clean, including vacuuming, but not mopping. I'll be running extra loads of laundry throughout the week to clear out the backlog of bedding, work towels, rugs and delicates. I can't do any more cleaning until I make a short grocery run in the morning, as I've run out of Simple Green and Clorox.

Besides that, I also fixed tuna salad with cherry tomatoes and cantaloupe for lunch, and spaghetti (squash for me) and meat balls for dinner. I used the rest of the extremely yummy marinara that Flar made up a while back, and stretched it with our regular Ragu. The spaghetti squash is more like angel hair pasta than regular spaghetti noodles, but it made a satisfying enough base for sauce and meatballs and cheese. I'm still full.

Now I'm going to go melt into the couch and veg in front of the TV with Critter. I'll have AIM running on my laptop, if anyone wants a chat.
