Today I am thankful for unexpected guests, that give me just enough warning to light a fire under me, and I get more things than humanly possible accomplished.
My super fabulous cousin Evelyn called this morning, and said they were going to be in town. I of course invited them over for dinner. Instead of staying home this morning and working in my house, I went out with Dorothy. Then I headed off to the school for our Thanksgiving Lunch. Cooper and I got home by about 1:00. Between 1:00 and 5:00, I did all of this:
5 loads of laundry (washed & folded)
Cleaned the boys room
Cleaned out Cooper's dresser
Cleaned the girl's room (this was monumental)
Cleaned our room
Cleaned dining room
Cleaned living room
Vacuumed whole house
Swept and mopped kitchen
Went to the grocery store
Made dinner for 10
I am exhausted, but I am so thankful to have all of this done as I head into my weekend. Now I can focus on so much more! It was also super fun visiting with Mark & Evelyn, and seeing there darling children. I am ready for some tv time, and some serious vegging now!
