There's been a serious lull in participation over the past 24 hours. Do I have a mutiny on my hands or did everyone go to the coast with Sam?
Regardless, I'm here if anyone needs ideas.
This morning I:
-Woke up and spilled water all over my new ottoman and almost cried, and had to tell myself "it's just water" 15 times before I believed it.
-Started last load of laundry and made the beds en route to the bathroom.
-Wiped down said bathroom.
-Came back out and realized my house is so disgusting I should turn myself in.
-Started tea, made a protein shake, and took meds.
-In refilling med cup, I dropped some very expensive pills right into my protein shake instead of the cup. This was truly excellent.
-Realized a tea bag had broken, and in transferring my tea into a different tumbler, I had the strainer upside down, creating a mess that necessitated two Kirkland wipes.
-Drank the Floradix Pam forced me to get, gagged, tried to curse her, but how could I? She be tryin' to help and shit yo.
That's it so far. FAIL! (See Sam? You spoke too soon!)
My goals for today are:
-Make sure the kids do their chores.
-Fold blankets, tidy up pillows, mourn wet ottomans, give up on table runner straightening itself out, feeling Quinn out for possibly vacuuming.
-Do all dishes (which are on hold because Quinny doesn't know there are clean dishes to be unloaded), wipe down kitchen, sweep floor, de-clutter.
-Fold two loads of laundry.
-Wipe down whatever is bothering me most as I weave through my house.
Here is what I had envisioned for my Moxlings today:
-Keep up with the basics. No excuses. You do not want to the weekend to catch you sitting atop a mountain of laundry and dishes.
-Go into each room and identify the five things you would least want your guests to see, and fix them.
-You've been wiping down top surfaces, go take a gander at side surfaces, like cupboards. And edges, and ledges, of counters, shelves, computer desks.
-And three things of your choosing. Great or small. But share them, because you guys are learning a lot from each other, and if I know what you have done, I will better know what to assign.
This should be a piece of cake guys (mmm...cake), get on it!
