My goals for today were to work out, finish the kids' bathroom, hang my son's door, and clean out the master closet. Amazingly, I got all of those things done! I even tried a new arm workout that was in my Self magazine, I think the September issue. The instructions say to use a 3 pound weight. I thought 3 pounds isn't much, but since it's the first time, I'll follow the rules. I can always do more next time, right? WRONG!!! Three pounds killed me! I really hope the new moves will add some definition to my arms. Three days from the big 4-0 and I don't like my old lady arms.
For the kids' bathroom, all that was left was hanging the towel hangers. Each kid got to say where there towel rack was placed. This should help prevent my youngest from having to hang on it and pull it out of the wall. I hope!
My son's door to his bedroom has been off for about six months. He used it as a swing and pulled it out of the wall. I glued wooden matchsticks together and stuffed them in the holes in both the door and the wall. Then, my hubby and I put new screws in. Not perfect, but he has a door!
For the master closet, I asked DH if I could get rid of some of his clothes. He told me no. So, I mostly just reorganized his portion of the closet. I must admit that I did throw away a few things that were soooo holey that he couldn't (shouldn't) wear them anymore and some socks that were all stretched out. I don't think he'll miss them. If he does, I'll find out soon!
Tomorrow I'm going to make cookies and candy. Most of it will go to work with me on Monday. I'm actually looking forward to going back to work! Two weeks off with no real trips and two kids out of school is just a little bit too long.
