Who's going to tackle Friday with me?

Jean in Newcastle

Recommended Posts

Well, I was going to go to bed, but I started reading someone's links about Waldorf school horrors and here it is 4:11am.  Ugh.


I really have to respond to some icky sticky emails before my clients start work in the morning.


The list:

  • Kids up & out to school, TGIF!
  • Clean the kitchen and some clutter.
  • Pet care.
  • Work.
  • Some reading.
  • Some exercise.
  • Personal stuff - depends on whether I'm home alone or not.
  • Kids to gymnastics.  Work while they play.
  • Dinner out.
  • Some old shows on DVD.
  • Kids to bed.
  • Work.

Good Morning...


I'm still sipping coffee after an early morning phone call from dh work...the beltway was closed inner and outer loop for a fatal crash.  No exactly how I like to wake up, but thankfully dh was just leaving when they called and planned a different route.


I've had breakfast and tidied the main floor....just have to vacuum.

Made the bed and tidied our bedroom.


Next up...exercise.


Then come home and make a list and pick up everything we need for the next week today.


I'm going to spend the weekend in DC with dh.  He has to work and Sunday is my bday and I'm going to stay with him up there.  He has students arriving Sunday and after the meet and greet we can walk around DC.  I'll be back Monday afternoon.   I'm so excited!! :)


Have a great day everyone!!

Well, we are 0 for 3 offers. It is nuts. We are losing out to cash offers even going way, way over list price (this last one was 33,000 over). The whole thing is not okay on so many levels.

And as the market is heating up, we can't afford most coming on the market. The one house per day in our price range. Getting very, very tired of this. And I hate feeling like we don't have enough. Because we do and are blessed.

I called to schedule an appt for my daughter to have a vision therapy assessment done.  


She is working on a placement test.  


I'm trying to finish some paperwork during our Quiet Time.  


This weekend we will be packing to move to a rental next month after selling our current place and not being able to find what we want for sale in the area we are looking.

Medical care done

Took a message from the nursing home on a very minor thing that somehow they always manage to blow up into a huge deal.

Cleaned the kitchen

Dealt with compost

Dealt with recycling including the glass that I broke on the driveway.

Calmed my neighbor down who was freaking out that a car has driven by and slowed down in front of our house for 3x in a row.  (People always get lost in this area). 


OK - next:  clean the CPap and then sort the mail / bills / etc.
