A good week

Can you believe it? It's been a good WEEK!!! Despite all that is going on around us, I've had a good week. I've made a list this week and stuck to it. My living room is clean, my kitchen is clean, the den is clean (cluttered with stuff to be put in storage, but clean), the bathrooms are clean and the kids has been spruced up so they can use it again for showers. All I have left to do are the bedrooms and the laundry room and my house will be completely done! I'm excited. I got dad to use the tractor to pull up 3 bushes in my front yard today that I've been itching to get rid they are gone! I plan on making a little butterfly garden around the crepe mertles now...which means I am going to have to learn to use a tiller. Not sure I like that, but I guess I will learn if I want it done. I wonder how much mulch costs? I better check into that as well. We also got some much needed good news this morning...we qualified for a little bit of assistance since Chris lost his disability. So that is a huge worry off my mind. I'm looking forward to tomorrow for a change. I may have put something on my list that I can't accomplish tomorrow, but I will work that out when I get to it. I'm going grocery shopping in the morning, as usual. Then I will try working on my bedroom for a bit. I've spent a lot less time on the computer this week. The only day I really missed it was yesterday when Chris had it at school. So to sum up...I've had a good week. LOL

I feel

Read that in a James Brown voice. Ok, enough oddness. I am feeling good today. I was productive. I got the kitchen cleaned, the dishes caught up, the den vacuumed, the litterboxes done, the guest bath done and a load of laundry done. What a way to start the week, eh? Now if tomorrow can be as good as today was and the rest of the week following that and I will have a clean house!!! I still have a Christmas tree up in the living room..still can't find a box to fit the thing in. I think tomorrow I'm gonna move it to the den just to get it out of sight. I've looked everywhere for one of those huge plastic containers....can't find one. I know these things exist...I've seen them. But can I find one...nope. Chris goes Friday to talk to the dreaded lawyer again. We will see what he has to say about this whole mess. Meanwhile, we hang on tight to what we've got. I still need brakes on the van...trying to make it until Chris's student loan pays out in March...but it's looking grim...I may have to break down and have them sooner. I started individual therapy this month. I like my therapist..she's short, black and funky. She's very direct..which is good for me. We are trying the list approach to things again...I did accomplish all the things on my list for today. I am just hoping I can make myself continue to do it. It's burning up in my house right now...even with the air on. I'm roasting. But at least I'm not freezing!! I am so happy to see the weather nice for a change. We went to the flea market Saturday...I took my camera and took pics of the kids as we went through. Chris said I was insane...but I got some really cute pics. I took the kids to the park Sunday and then out for ice was a nice day. Well, I think that's all I can think of. Like the blog? lol I'm already planning for Easter...I'm such a nerd!!

My Drama Queen is turing 10.

I'm having a hard time believing it. I've been a mommy for a decade!! We are celebrating tomorrow with Strawberry cake and ice cream. Kaelyn is having a sleep over next weekend. I'm going to take her shopping tomorrow so she can spend the money her Grammie sent her, she'll love that. I just can't believe she's turning 10!!!
