Today is kitchen day. After yesterday it really needs it! Hubby decided to make pizza crust for personal pizzas for all of us. Now, I love the fact that he likes to cook, I just wish he didn't need to use EVERY pan, bowl and utensil we own. I cleaned up a lot last night, but the overflow will happen today. Also, the never ending laundry and some filing.

Honestly, what are manufacturers thinking----it's turning colder so we need that part covered---grrrrrr!
I did get one cabinet cleaned out and reorganized. Also shredded papers and filed away the paperwork from paying the bills last weekend. At least I accomplished something this weekend.

I do have trouble finding shoes that don't rub. Unfortunately, I can't tell at the store so I buy them and then they are useless. Luckily, I can sell most of them at the consignment shop.

The only laundry that I did yesterday was the new clothes my daughter picked out. We had a hard time finding shirts for her. All the ones at TJMaxx were bare midriff style, even sweatshirts. We found a couple that she can were tank tops over that will be okay, and 2 pairs of jeans. Today is more laundry -towels, boys, the rest of daughter's. They help so it's not so bad.

Tina,, do you have trouble finding sneakers that don't rub your ankles, too? My ankle bones are low so most sneakers are too high in that area which is one reason why I like my Easy Spirit clogs so much---they don't bother the ankles---even dress shoes can be a problem.
I didn't get the things I planned done except for laundry but we did run some errands and got a new microwave---somehow the inside of my microwave had started to run---so we got a new one and I had to clean off the area where the old one was and then we could put the new one there. So nice to see the inside of the new one.
Today I will file those papers away and clean one area of the kitchen that is bugging me---but dh will help me there as we need to empty that lower cabinet, reorganize it after we clear it out.

One trip many years ago I made the mistake of buying new shoes for a trip - Skechers Go walk with yoga mat foam inserts. Luckily I took my older shoes with me. The new ones were kind of comfy but rubbed my ankles so bad. Never made that mistake again. Lesson learned.

Today is laundry and taking my daughter clothes shopping. After sorting her clothes there's not much left. My baby girl is growing up! emoticon

Pat, not flying so no problem packing anything for my trip---LOL And I never take new shoes on a trip---some people are so dumb---but I am thinking about whether I will get a new pair of sneakers soon to start breaking them in, but might just stay with my Easy Spirit clogs as I wear them all day at school and been averaging over 4 miles a day when working in them and they give me enough support where the new sneakers don't seem to have any support and all have that awful memory foam. Plus I will take more than one pair of shoes and not wear the same pair every day. But I am okay with buying a sweatshirt there if needed---that's why I am there---LOL---but I am taking a couple of lightweight ones that I have that are Disney themed. We went one year in late October and like you said, we had a couple of days we needed long pants and a little something to wear over our tops and some days we were fine in shorts. I always overpack---which is one reason why I would or could never fly---too many decisions on what not to take---plus we can bring home all the sourvenirs in the car that we all buy---my son and his gf and her son will fly down and we will meet up there but we will bring home all their extra stuff with us.
Definitely plan on tackling my dining room table---have some paper clutter to file away---and then tackle some cleaning in the kitchen while my laundry is being done.

Lecates, when you go to Disney in November, count on it to it to be extra cool at least one day; so take a hoodie or cover-up. You know how expensive it is to buy those things within the park. And, although they may not look all that good, take your super comfy shoes or clogs or crocs. Amazing how many brand new pairs of white tennis shoes you see that haven't been broken in that people insist on wearing. They pay for it later, too. Ever heard of a product called moleskin? It's available where you buy insoles. You cut it to fit an area on your foot that is rubbing and will eventually blister. Ah, relief! (So don't forget to pack scissors in your check-in bag.)

I have nothing to declutter today. The house is so very orderly, and has been for a week, since I have no one but myself to pick up after. Glorious! Come Sunday it will be back to normal.

That is a problem with a small post office. We have a main one and a couple of small branches in my small city---I prefer the small one near our home but know I can go to the big one if needed---but I kind of know when they will take a break at the small one so don't go during that time---the one thing I find inconvenient is that it doesn't open until 9:30 and closes at 4---and not open on Saturday.
I really do need to do some housework this weekend---I have created more clutter than I have decluttered so I need to deal with that stuff.

Ooooo Disney!! Nice!

I'm taking it easy today. Dentist this afternoon and library visit. I tried to go to the post office, but they were closed for lunch. emoticon I lugged my giant bag for ThredUp up the stairs and in only to find they weren't there. Ugh! So it's back in the trunk and I'll go tomorrow. I couldn't wait for them to reopen an hour later, unless I wanted to waste some time in the little downtown area, but there's really nothing else there.

Usually they are the bins you see at different places that do not say Good Will or Salvation Army--those are the places to put those kid of things. Old towels, blankets, sheets are useful for your animal shelters so you might call them if you have stuff like that to see if they take donations of that sort.
Been doing some decluttering of things on my mind that relate to our Disney Vacation plans in November. I think I have everything set for our stays except to look for some ideas of where to stay on our trip down. Our trip back home will be less stressful as we will stop when we get too tired after being in full vacation mode and might not want to drive as much if we are too tired.

Thanks for the info! I'll check into that and see if there is anything in our area. I'd even take it up to Raleigh if they have it there. Most of the stuff was good for my youngest, just a few for Goodwill.

I've been so busy running around that I haven't had a lot of time to get things done. Tomorrow is a dentist appt at 11 so the morning and afternoon are free until 5:30 when I pick up my oldest from band practice. The other two ride the bus and get home around 4:45 and get a snack and decompress. Usually no homework. Tomorrow I want to get to the library to return some books and to the post office to mail my ThredUp bag and a box for a friend that has been on my counter for a good month. emoticon

Tina, don't throw any clothing away. There are textile recyclers that only ask that things are clean. Stains and tears don't matter. They even recycle shoes, belts, probably purses.

Just trying to get everything into ship-shape order before the new neighbor comes over for her tour.

Hope the sorting went quickly.
I did feel better so paid the bills once I got home--got rid of that paper clutter by doing that. Also organized the medical insurance papers together so that I can check any bills that come in against what the insurance company says I have to pay. What a pain that is!

LECATES-Hope you are feeling better!

Today I'm working on on that laundry of stuff my kids sorted out that are too small. My daughter's will go to the sell pile and my oldest's will be packed up for his little brother. What isn't worth keeping will go in the trash or rag bag.

The kitchen needs attention. I made Jell-o and put it in individual sundae glasses. It somehow dripped along the saran covers onto the refrigerator shelf. Never saw that happen before.

Today I'm working on laundry - towels, kids', blankets. Also the kids are cleaning out their closets and rooms and getting rid of a lot of stuff. My oldest had a huge box and trash bag worth of clothes to give to his little brother. I'll wash it all and store it until it will fit him. My daughter is also sorting her clothes. She is 13 and growing out of the larger kids sizes and needs more junior size clothes. I'll plan a shopping trip in the near future.

Pat, I had a mild case of shingles several years ago---thankfully on my leg---but I think it affected the IT band there---the pain from that is totally different than any other pain so I am proactive to not get it again. The new shot is given in 2 doses---I didn't have a reaction from the original shot but these 2 has given me the feeling of flu---chills and achy---and boy, does my arm hurt from the injection. Glad I don't have to have another.
Needless to say I was not up to doing much except for put a load of laundry in and cook dinner last night.

Lecates, what prompted you to get the shingles vaccine? My DH just mentioned getting one this week.

I did a lot of tidying last night very late, just so I wouldn't have to wake to a mess. Continued putting things in their places this morning. A bit of ironing and restocking the fabric I used to make reusable gift bags for the presents traveling to Rwanda "family" is on the docket for today. After the rainstorm last night, it should be fairly easy to pull out the weeds I hoed up a couple days ago. emoticon

Got a dandy deal on pint freezer containers -- 99 each. I bought 10 and promptly filled them with veggies and fruits that are sold in one-pound bags. They stack atop each other easily and are easy to see through, so I know the amount left. I made a list of what is in the freezer and separated the various foods, so I'll know what I have when it comes to meal planning.

Tina, I did yesterday what you're doing today in preparation for the carpenter coming, only to learn last night that he is sick and won't be here till he gets over his cold. I refuse to put everything back and do it again, so we'll be eating on the patio or at the breakfast bar for dinner.

Don't think I'll be doing much today. The mouth pain is driving me back to bed. A nap is better than taking another painkiller. I hope it works.

I did get the lunch stuff I bought the other night put in the basket to grab quickly and put the excess away in the spare room. Small chores were done and I got some needed down time yesterday. Today my son is coming over to trim the front bushes so I will be decluttering all those clippings today.

We are a mixed bag of kids---middle school age but levels of ability vary greatly---no, I can't do that suggestion or she would think I was taking her authority away from her---already an issue when I changed the breakfast order from all white milk to what they will drink. It was better yesterday because she gave me something to do.
Dorain has passed so hope to get some things done today.

Would the teacher feel her toes were being stepped on if you presented her with a fun (but pertinent) worksheet that you'd already copied? Depending on how you presented it, she might get a good idea from it. What grade level is this? I used to help in a first grade room and the teacher had a ton of salvaged reading books that had been scrapped for new texts. Whenever a child had a few extra minutes s/he was expected to get one and practice reading skills.

I have a list of over a dozen things to accomplish today. Will be moving countertop items to the mudroom in preparation for Monday's crown molding installation.

We didn't get hit too bad at all. Just rain and some wind, but nothing terrible like over at the coast.

There is school today so I will be able to work around the house. Didn't get much done yesterday. I have a dr appointment at 10:15 but otherwise a free day.

I am the assistant in the room---I do what the teacher has for me to do and help the kids when doing assignments---which they haven't had any for me to help them with. I take them to specials and help them there. It was a bit better yesterday but they need paperwork to do---they are so bored and so am I.
I am just exhausted when I get home right now---hope to get something done this weekend.
We are getting rain today from Dorian.

Lecates, I agree that the teacher should have had an activity for the kids to get down to business first thing. Kids get bored and rowdy when they are left to their own devices. What is it that you do in the classroom?

Yesterday and today were lost days. I had a tooth extraction yesterday and was out of it today, having taken an Aleeve P.M. Boy, those things are potent.

LECATES - oh no! not a good way to start the school year.

School was called off for today because of Dorian. So far, we just have rain, not even heavy rain yet. Clouds are moving pretty fast across the sky. We are not supposed to get it really bad here, but you never know until it passes, plus it's not going to hit us until later today. Kids are hoping for no school tomorrow.

Today I am working on laundry and my bathroom. I also need to work on the budget and my desk.

Pat, that is crazy---why have cleaning people if you have to clean before they get there? LOL I really don't understand that concept.
Susan, hope safe travels for her.
Horrible first day---not the kids but the new teacher---so unprepared and too much time for the kids just sitting there. The day starts at 7:45 and she didn't start the class until 8:55---yes, I am not kidding about the time we started doing anything. This has got to change or I will go bonkers.

My son's girlfriend had to leave Ohio and head back to crazy weather Georgia yesterday. I hope she's safe!

When the cleaning ladies are coming, the whole place is usually decluttered. I even put away the stuff on the shower shelves. Magazine racks and small decor pieces are up off the floor. Wastebaskets are emptied and put into closets. I try to streamline everything so they're in and out quickly. Then I can get on with the rest of my day. Today I just read and did some internet mailing. DH and I took a walk after supper.

Hope Dorian doesn't cause too much trouble for anyone. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Tina, we might have to move some furniture to an enclosed place but waiting to see what they say Dorian will do here. Hope you only get some rain and gusts of wind with little damage.
Pam, hope you got the laundry done.
I did some laundry and did just a tiny bit in the spare room---didn't really feel like diving into more. Did get rid of 2 more magazines.
Back to work today

We are all prepped for quite a few meals now. emoticon

Getting things done around the house this weekend, prepping for Dorian. We got hit last year with Florence and Michael, but we live about 2 hours inland so it wasn't as bad as most areas. Lots of wind and flooding. Schools were closed for about a week for each. We just moved to NC last summer so we were initiated early.

Kids back in school tomorrow so I hope to get some things done. My MIL is being released from the rehab back to her apartment tomorrow morning and I have a chair being delivered between 10-12. I'll be with her most of the day, but I want some time for myself in there. I am a big time introvert and all this *togetherness* drains me. I need down time to recharge.

Tina, what a bummer! But glad you were able to save most of the meat. But the other stuff can be costly to replace. Hope everyone in the family has learned a good lesson on making sure that is closed correctly from now on. I am glad we just have a small extra freezer and that it has a space in the kitchen. Are you preparing for the storm? Sure hope Dorian doesn't make a mess of your area like the storm did a few years back.
Pam, did you get a nap?
My niece didn't come pick up those pictures so I need to find a place for them besides the dining room table. I go back to work tomorrow so should do something in the spare room---we will see what I feel like doing today.

So sorry about the freezer mishap, Tina.

Dragging today -- it may be nap time.

We had a big upset this morning. It turns out the garage freezer door wasn't sealed all the way last night so we lost a lot of stuff. Hubby cooked up all the meat that was salvageable so we could refreeze it. Roast in the crock pot, ground beef cooked up, chicken baked for casseroles. We did lose all the fruit and ice cream as well as some veggies and convenience foods (pizza, hot pockets, pizza rolls - the kids snacky stuff) Hubby was very grumpy. He found out when we came home from the gym this morning and went through the garage. So cleaning the kitchen after his cooking fest is on my to-do list. I am glad to have all the stuff prepped for easier dinners for me to make during the week. I see a Costco trip in our near future.

I decluttered the veggie beds of dead plants----looks a lot better outside. My niece is coming to get some pictures I found in my mom's pile of her and her brother so that will be gone today off my dining room table.
Keep going---we all need to organize---even the neatest people have their little hidden area.
