I had a busy, productive day! Slept in until 8:30, got up dresses and got to work. First, started laundry. Then had the kids help me vacuum under the bed. Next, finished up my grocery list and gathered coupons. Forced myself to eat (I know, I am still such or there would be no forcing!) and went grocery shopping. Saved over $13 with my coupons!!
Came home and got everything put away and then headed to the library. Spent about an hour there Sparkin. Came home, sorted the clothes in my closet (finally) and then started burning stuff. I even had time to sit and read for half an hour!
Dinner was tacos and them off for a little window shopping with my man. When I mentioned that tomorrow is V day, he was terribly surprised! We're going to go to breakfast as a family. Big plans, huh? LOL!
Happy Valentine's Day all you Sparkers!

I was able to sleep in all the way to 7:30 this morning! Yippee!! Got up, got some brocolli cooking and got the babies to work. The room upstairs wasn't as bad as I was afraid it would be, so it didn't take us too long to get everything cleaned up. Took the stuff to burn dowstairs snd got about 1/5th of it burned. Plan to finish that tomorrow.
Took a shower and went to lunch with my friend. Mexican buffet. Very good and I didn't overeat!
After lunch, I started a load of laundry and ran some quick errands. The good news is that I don't have to go to Wal-mart on the weekend! LOL!
Went to the gym and figured out why they say not to exercise with a chest cold. Walked there and back. On the way back I was carrying pizzas for dinner. Does that count as strength training? LOL!
Didn't get a nap in, but didn't feel like I needed one. Also, didn't sort the clothes in my closet. Mostly cos I forgot it was on my list. Oops!
Tomorrow is grocery shopping (list and menus are already done!), library, clothes sorting, laundry and maybe a walk. Possibly a nap, depending on how I feel.
Time to head to bed now. Spark y'all tomorrow!

Well, maybe BIG might be overstating it a little. My first plan is to sleep in. Really hoping my cough allows that! After I get up, the kids and I are tackling the upstairs room. Yep, tackling. We tried touch, but we weren't getting anywhere! LOL!
Okay, really we're going to straighten, sort, organize, throw away, clean, whatever it takes! Then we're going to burn all the stuff I planned to shred before the shredder died. Fun for me and for them!
After that (or in the middle of it), I plan to have lunch with my friend (yes, I have one friend in the real world! LOL!)
After that, I'll start laundry, write my menus and grocery list and take a nap. Take-n-bake pizza is for supper, so no stress there! Sounds like a darned good day!

Let me start by saying that I went to the doctor this morning to get my eyes checked. I have pink eye in both eyes. For anyone who doesn't know what that is, it's a highly contagious eye infection that makes your eyes itchy and goopy. Once you start the drops, the contagion decreases quickly. The doc said I could go to work, so I did. BUT, I also know how paranoid folks are about pink eye, so I told my boss.
He comes over and says I can't tell you what to do (he's the boss, he can tell me what to do) but, isn't that really contagious? LOL! I took the hint, finished a couple of quick things and left. I got my prescription and headed home. Once I got home, I curled up with my book, a blanket, and some tea. Before long, I fell asleep! Man I like naps! The good news is that my eyes weren't goopy when I woke up!!
On a separate note, the kids got the Mario Kart game for the Wii today. Told them they had to read and do their chores before they could play. The boy decided that he didn't want to read. But, it was okay to behave like a baby when his sister did her stuff and was allowed to play. I'm ready to send him to bed. Or better yet, send me to bed! LOL!
At this rate, I think our Friday morning project is going to turn into an all-day, work until you drop marathon! Maybe an attitude adjustment will come out of it. Wish me luck!

Okay I'll admit it. I was smug. About two weeks ago, the guy who sits next to me in my cube came in with a horrible cold. Everyone around us was getting sick. But not me!! I eat right. I exercise. I'm healthy! There's no way I'm going to get sick. That's what I kept telling myself anyway. Here I am sitting here with a cold and two eyes infected with pink eye! Not fair! (Yes, Michelle, I'm going to the doc tomorrow for drops.) I guess it goes to show you that if it's your turn, you're getting sick!
On a semi-positive note, it looks like my computer might be fixed! Brought it home and started using it. Within five minutes, it went kaput. I took it back to the lady today and she said she knows the fix. I should have it back tomorrow. If I go to work that is. Otherwise I'll have it back by Thursday! Yippee!!
Okay, time for bed. Have to get up early to get me some eye drops.
