We got back in last night with a truck and a car full of stuff. In my head I planned to get home and unpack everything and then deep clean or at least start deep cleaning the spare room and spare bath. Hubs unloaded the truck as it had bikes and mom's walker and coolers. But instead I took a 4 mile walk with Hub's and then vegged on the couch. So far Hub's has carried three loads out of the car and I have read blogs. How is this happening? I don't know? I did get a 12 pack of diet coke out of the back of the car into the garage fridge and I did get the dirty clothes basket into the laundry room. I did something, yeah I did help......
The lake was lovely and I enjoyed my two girls and the grandson was adorable. Mom and Lil Sis were fun. I think Mom had a good time. She had a bad night on Saturday night, but Lil sis got to deal with it. Lil sis has a really obnoxious dog and I probably should have kept mom. Oh well water under the bridge.
It was too much work to only stay two nights and really we could not check in until 4 p.m. and then had to be out at noon on Sunday. All that packing and planning to unpack up there and then pack back up and now have to clean up. We had to bring our own linens so I had four beds to make up and now do the laundry. I won't do it again unless we stay longer.
My oldest grandson and son-in-law will be here Thursday afternoon late and grandson will spend the night and the next day with us. Son-in-law has a water case in upper Idaho. So I am using this as an excuse to deep clean or Spring/summer clean the house, which desperately needs the love. Spider webs every where and dust and dirt. I also want to get ready for Sluggies visit the end of July but I realize the clean just won't last that long. Drats!
So today after I take care of the lake aftermath and believe me there will be aftermath, I am going to deep clean the spare room and bath and maybe gt to the hall, linen closet and out room. This will be after I get my sewing quota done. So it might be a late evening here. I hope the sofa doesn't leap out and grab me.
Money saving madness
1. only went to the grocery store once
2. used coupons and in store deals to knock down total at grocer.
3. packed almost all lake food from my storage and freezers.
4. Made a big salad out of pantry supplies for lake.
5. Made homemade cookies and banana bread for sweet snacks
6. kept menu simple and bought everything and I mean everything on sale.
So I am off to clean, clean, clean after I put away, put away,put away and sew, sew, sew.
Have a great and productive day.
