To Do:

This upcoming weekend is a weekend of PAR-TAYS around here. Every day of the weekend, beginning on Friday we will be hosting guests in our home. Saturday evening there are guests coming that I do not even know...people that I have never met, coming into my home. Kirby was VERY unsure of this...and now I am wishing I had heeded his advice.

Needless to say, my home needs a VERY thorough cleaning. Thankfully, I have a number of days off this week to get it done.

One way I keep myself on task is to publish it here, holding myself accountable to the world (or at least my version of the "world" - all of you).

So today, I will accomplish the following:

  • Clean and organize the kitchen.


  • The stove (which IS NOT a self-clean oven...which means scrubbing and FUMES)
  • The microwave
  • The floor (and being that it is winter and there is a LOT of mud out there due to the snow that can't decide whether it is coming or going - this is going to be a HUGE job)
  • The refrigerator (my least favorite job right after the floors)
  • The table and chairs (of course, they get cleaned every evening, but A is not the cleanest eater and they need a REALLY good scrubbing)
  • The top of the cabinets (this ends up being a place for little odds and ends to get placed and never returned to their rightful place)
  • The top of the fridge (where toys that are taken away end up)

So that is that. Period. What a way to spend a Monday.

Tuesday will be more of that just a different room of the house...as will Wednesday and Thursday and Friday...UGH!

AND they are predicting ANOTHER snow storm on Tuesday. Have I mentioned that I don't believe my children have had a full day of school since before Christmas? Did you know that looking at the 10-day forecast they are predicting snow 6 out of those 10 days? I'm SO done.

One day this week I will be posting all about the Pinewood Derby and the homecoming of our baby girl...what an emotional day that was...pics and stories to come.

I will do my best to be by each of your blogs (especially you, Very Good Year...I am awaiting news...ANXIOUSLY) but understand, I will be VERY busy!!

I have spent hours scrubbing my house when guests have been coming over and then I came to the realization that as long as I serve martinis, they don't care what my house looks like! And they will NEVER see the inside of my oven!
