Okay -- I have a ton of stuff going on this weekend.
Luckily my boss finished editing the paper with me and we re-submitted the review article to a journal. Now I can breathe!
I stupidly offered to host a holiday party for our department. This means I needed to CLEEEEEEAN. And for some reason in my crazy brain I decided to clean out my closets; Not throw stuff in so people don't see like I usually do ;-)
So I bought some storage tubs at Target (they're on sale this week!) and got to organizing. I got rid of all of the XL stuff in my wardrobe (WHAT?!?) And some of the 0x stuff from Maurices in my closet. Goodbye most of my size 10Tall jeans from the Gap. I'm only keeping 2 just in case... And my winter coats in size 18/20, 1x, and I think a 2x. They're all in bags ready to donate. Oh and one whole bag of shoes I don't want anymore in size 12 (any other giant feet ladies out there?)
I even cleaned out my linen closet. I may take some old towels to the humane society later next week or keep them as dog towels--who knows.
So basically my house is trashed but my closets look fantastic! Haha... not what I need.
I was hoping to get it all done before tonight since TJ will be back here this weekend. My friend has a party for us to go to, but we may try to catch him up on Doctor Who before the new x-mas special.
Then Saturday I am cooking a turkey. This is the first time I've ever been in charge of one. I'm going to go simple -- oven bag it so it's juicy... but still a little pressure. Plus rolls... plus stuffing... plus mashed potatoes... plus 20-30 people in my house = streeeeeess.
I don't want to go nuts with food this weekend, so I am going to try to make positive choices.
Sunday will be recovering and cleaning. So yep -- that's it. Everyone have a good weekend!
