Accomplished!

For some reason today I got soo much accomplished...this is what I did, laundry, dishes, picked up the entire house, washed my dining room chairs (don't ask...I'm a dork, in my defense, they had NEVER been washed and there was sticky stuff ALL over them), made homemade bread, made dinner in the crock pot, talked to my kids, played with them in the back yard for a while, and a few other random things, and all the while my kids are being sooooooo good today (well so far) Woowhoo. We are also going to the library and then the park in a bit so that will be nice! This is pretty much a rare occurrence so I thought I would document it! I wonder what makes us so productive one day and so counter-productive the next? I want to hear some of the things that you all accomplished today (or recently), big or small!

Shannon - I love the pic on the ferry. Makes me miss Washington. It is soooo pretty there! And I love weather cold enough to wear jackets with red noses! :)

I have not accomplished much at all. I did take my car in to the shop today, stopped by Deseret Book and got a load of laundry done! But that's it! I'm usually so busy (and I like it that way) that I like to get lots done, but these days, I'm the opposite. And, I'm feeling like a nap right now. :) I'm glad you had a productive day. Homemade bread sounds yummy!

Don't you just love the feeling of accomplishment. I only had to work this morning...so I came back..paid some bills, cleaned the room, folded laundry, and cleaned the bathroom.

I wish I could say I accomplished a lot today!! Woke up, drove all the way to Pullman with Sam for a 10 minute meeting with the "community action center" all they did was give me papers to fill out, and for some reason they couldn't just send them to us or wait a week till we got back to Pullman!! Sam tantrumed half the day, only took a 1 hour nap before the meeting, we got stuck doing 10 mph behind a paint truck (painting the lines on the road so you can't pass) for about 15 minutes (in a 65mph zone) and got a notice in our Pullman mail box that our mail is no longer being delivered! (when I called they blamed us, saying we let our mailbox get too full, we cleared it out like 7 days ago!! I was so upset, all our mail has been sent back to the senders, insurance and who knows what else. Now I have to call around and try and explain that the Post office made a mistake...not me!!) Our mailbox has filled up each month and we empty it at least once a month when we visit Pullman, It just doesn't make sense! URGH!! Can you tell that it's been a ruff, very unproductive day for me!! Oh and we just got home about an hour ago from our long boring drive home, I cryed a couple times out of frustration!

I am glad you accomplished so much though! Yeah for you, maybe I will call you tomorrow for some motivation, because right now I have none!

Well, yesterday was moderately productive for me. I read for an hour or so. Showered, went visiting teaching at the park, lunch, cleaned bathroom, laundry, babysat three kids, made dinner, went to a BASEBALL GAME and we whooped em! It was a good day. And today my kids slept till 8!!! Hallelujah!

Taya, I am sorry you had such a cruddy day! I have those day a lot where nothing works out that you want/need. What a pain that your mail got sent back! Did you get that all fixed? Are you having a better day today? I am not having a productive day today..I have PMS bad and a headache so that equals grumpy mommy! I REALLY hope you are doing better today and remember every dog has his day...yours was yesterday!

Thanks Shan!! Yes a better day today, a little more productive then yesterday thankfully. I called the places I thought might of sent me something important and verified that we still live there. I was a little more lazy then I should have been though, we have so much to do....yard sale on friday and sat and Tyler is taking the majority of our stuff to pullman on saturday so pretty much we have to be all packed by then. Then we will be cleaning all next week and out of here thursday. I can't believe the summer went so quickly. Oh and only 11 weeks till our little guy is due, yeah! Thanks for the love, good luck with the PMS!! Hopefully we will get to see you guys soon:)
