Pre-Follow Up

Today was very productive but I'll tell you all about it later. I'm getting ready for bed and looking forward to putting my feet up. If it wasn't for this harsh pregnancy-related sciatica, I'd stay up and do a proper post right now. But, I just can't tonight.

I have lots of pictures to download and then upload to my blog. And yes, every "before" has a following "after" picture.

I'll just say that from my list, I accomplished the following:
  1. MAKE LIST (as mentioned)
  2. REORGANIZE KITCHEN (rearrange, redecorate, clean, fill new island with necessary stuff, etc.)
  3. EMPTY DISHWASHER
  4. LOAD DISHWASHER
  5. SWEEP AND WASH KITCHEN FLOOR
  6. PUT WINTER STUFF IN "NEW" DRESSER
  7. PUT AWAY DUFFEL BAG (that's been storing winter stuff)
  8. SHOWER
  9. FIX HAIR
  10. MAKE SELF PRETTY
  11. LIGHT A CANDLE
  12. PLAY MUSIC (actually, I played a scripture tape instead... so uplifting!)

I also did the following:

  1. CLEAN THE DININGROOM
  2. LAY TABLE CLOTH AND PLACE MATS
  3. STRAIGHTEN UP BATHROOM
  4. GROCERY SHOPPING
  5. REPACK AND FREEZE MEAT
  6. TAKE PREGNANCY PROFILE PICS (actually, Toby did that.)
The kitchen was by far the biggest task but I'm so happy to say that every cupboard (except for under the sink) and nook and cranny is organized and has it's own proper place. This really takes a load off my mind. I'm looking forward to doing lots of cooking and baking now that I have such an orderly kitchen. I splurged this evening and rewarded myself with red, cheery, new kitchen rugs. Talk about paradise and pleasure! It definitely was a good prize for the size of task my kitchen was today.

Stay tuned for pictures and more updates!

Wow, sis, you're amazing! You need no nanny afterall ;). Can't wait for the pictures. Please, please, please, a profile pic! I can't wait to tell Tobe what a good photographer he is :P

Oh, and for a pregnant woman ailing with sciatica, make sure rest gets put high on that to do list so you don't crash!

Rest is on that list but I have too much energy to put it first right now!

Instead of always coming to nanny our kids and wash our dishes and do our laundry and clean our house, you should just come for a cup of tea and relax for once. :) Wouldn't that be fun?! You definitely deserve it.
