Washed and ironed: stacks of fresh dinner napkins that I use as place mats on the dinner table.
My husband and son took off for a long weekend on Thursday morning. You should see the list I made for myself, thinking of all the things I wanted to accomplish while I had the house mostly to myself (I still had my older son's dogs to watch during most afternoons).
They were big jobs, like cleaning closets, cleaning the entry way, deep cleaning the kitchen (I did get the stove done, oven and all, but not the rest!) and some sewing (got the shower gift finished), movies to watch, (I did watch two)...and more.
Well, as usual, I over-dream, and my lists are too long. Less than a fourth of the items were checked off.
This morning, they're heading for home and I am trying to remain positive about what tasks I DID accomplish--rather than the list of unfinished items.
Do you do this, too? Us list makers, we are a disappointed lot sometimes, aren't we?
So today I'm trying my best to not beat myself over the head too hard with the un-accomplished tasks still left to do, that will, of course, take three times as long with people in the house once again!
Sigh...well, Water For Elephants was a good movie, and I congratulated myself on being able to operate the DVD player without having another person in the house to help me, the dogs didn't know what they were doing! Haha!
