Getting stuff done

June 29th, 2009

Well I must have been tired last night, since I titled my post “I need a housekeepers.” Oops.

Anyway, today is going well. I’ve divided all the overwhelming household chores over the next few days and so far so good. I just can’t do those marathon cleaning days I used to do before Ella. So, today on my list: cleaning the downstairs floors. It may not sound like much, but most of our space is downstairs, and a lot of it it tile. So, I moved all the chairs and rugs, vacuumed everything, and then took my steam mop to the tile. I really should do that more often. I should at least get a swiffer wet jet to help keep the floor clean in between mopping. OK, I’ll stop boring you with my floors.

We leave Thursday for our annual fourth of July camping trip. It’s the same campground we visited a few weeks ago, but this time we’ll be there a little longer and a lot of Steve’s family will be there. Plus we’ll do the fun fourth of July festivities like the parade, and Ella will go to the fireworks for the first time. I can’t wait! Oh yeah, and a few of our good friends are coming to camp a few of the nights. Fun!

I just checked on Ella in her room. She’s been quiet in there since I layed her down for a nap over a half hour ago. But there she was sitting reading books with all the lights on, sans diaper! She’s really good about going down for naps, but I do always need to check on her diaper situation and to make sure she’s sleeping or you never know …

OK, off to watch a little House Hunters and put my feet up a little while!

    I love to watch “House Hunters,” too. Jeff and I like to pick which house the couple will buy. Well, I like to. Jeff plays along.
