Hi!  I didn't get much work done yesterday, even though I felt like I did a lot of something.  :P  So today I need to be productive and keep my clients happy.

  • Laundry - wash 1, dry 2, fold & put away 3.  (So far I've done one of each.)
  • Pack kids' gym clothes.
  • Successfully hid my kid's vitamins D3 and B12 in her yogurt without her knowing it.
  • Kids off to the school bus on time.
  • Cleaned up the kitchen, bathrooms, and some clutter.
  • Ordered some school shirts and sheets for the kids.
  • Caught up on social media.
  • A little reading.

To do:

  • Lots of work reports and stuff.
  • More reading, housework, and a little exercise.
  • Pay some bills.
  • Get some hand-me-downs packed for nieces.
  • Make appointments for doc, chiro, and tires.
  • FedEx run.
  • Kids' homework - hopefully not much since their math is done.
  • Kids to gymnastics.  Work while they tumble.
  • Read-aloud?
  • Kids to bed.
  • Work.

Scout, I'm basically having the same dinner, but it's chicken and veggies in a bag in the oven with seasoning in packet. I resort to convenience items often on swim nights!

Roast chx is easy and good. Then I use the bones for stock. My veggies are from my CSA box, so sweet potatoes or squash tonight, plus a nice salad.

human care done

pet care done

medical care done

called an electrician - they are booked out at least a week but he said that he would walk dh through it for free over the phone.  Dh took his phone number. 

Called and and called and called around the Children's hospital network getting the runaround until a very nice lady in medical records said that she would take care of everything for me by tomorrow morning (which is when I need the lab results for a doctor).

got the laundry done and cleaned the laundry room 

swept the basement

had our vet appt. and tentatively scheduled dental work for 5 horses next week

cleaned the kitchen

picked out my new kitchen cabinet doors and molding (Our existing cabinet boxes are in good shape and I like the layout, so we are keeping them. This will save us quite a bit, which is good because our new hickory flooring is $$$.)

talked w/dh about our outdoor/barn projects that need to be done soon

kitchen - rebooted dishwasher but it isn't running because it isn't full.


laundry - put ds' wet clothes in the dryer and the rest of his dirty clothes in the washer.  Sigh.  He was supposed to do his laundry on Saturday or Sunday so that I would have the washer and dryer free for my stuff today.  But oh well. 


School/ Grading/ Paperwork - I can't even see my table due to all the kitchen stuff that got moved there yesterday because we're trying to set up for a new kitchen range.  So I'm going to put this off and wash out cabinets and put stuff back so that I can do this a couple of rounds later.  So far I have put all the pans back in their spot.

Got one drawer put back into cabinet.


Got down on my knees and then belly to totally wash out one cabinet. 


filled the dishwasher up with dusty bowls to wash before putting them back in the cabinet.  Dishwasher is now running.


Threw out the one lacquerware tray that got broken.  I still have two more but they were a set that I've had for 35 years now.  It makes me sad to throw that one away  but it was unsalvageable.

I spent most of the afternoon doing office work. Got some bills paid and made myself file everything right away. Since I just got my desk cleaned off last week, I'm trying to avoid the dreaded "to be filed" pile from building up again.


Now I have to get some hay steaming and then get started on dinner.

Degreased the kitchen fan/exhaust.


Washed down the wall one more time.  I just cannot get these yellow grease spots off despite using 409 and Dawn and even a motorized scrubber.  Sigh.


Folded one load of ds' clothes.  Put his second load into the dryer.


Now I am grading a 15 page biology final.  With no answer key.  So my goal here is to do 5 pages at a time.  1 page down. . .

kitchen - washed knife block and all handwashables.


laundry - dd helped me to switch laundry around.  Folded second load of ds'.  Now we are washing my loads. 


School - celebrated Dd finally finishing up last year's biology by going out for fro-yo


And after froyo I stopped by the grocery store and picked up a rotisserie chicken and some microwavable potatoes and veggies since I have no stove.
