Yesterday I was tooling along in the shop as I have been all week and I had planned on getting a few more dresses out. Hubs and I made a plan to have him till the garden and he was complaining about not having a fresh stock of clean underwear. How long has Sis been gone? Yes I am way behind on laundry and again on ironing. Mom's bed ruffle needs to be ironed and put back on her bed.
Hub's wanted to clean the chicken coop first as he will till the manure into the garden. This is no easy job. I had also spoken to him about having rock delivered. He said it was okay. Little did I now that it would be delivered while he was in the middle of cleaning the coop. They also delivered way too much. A good portion was delivered into the street which meant I had to leave my sewing and him the coop. We worked like dogs for three hours to get the pile 18 inches from the curb. That is the legal limit it could stick out over night. Then we lit the pile with outdoor lights. I could do nothing by 6 last night but lay in a chair and groan.
I actually ordered a very bad pizza, salad, chicken combo. Expensive and awful. We ate it but it was gross. I could not cook. I could not get upstairs to reheat. I could not. Now I have to stay in the shop today as I have clients until past 6 p.m. and at least 3 brides. The shop is a wreck and the house needs love. My laundry is beyond, beyond. I have not taken down the Easter things. It is only 11:00 in the morning and I am already a sweaty mess.
Why, why do I let things get like this? Why can't I be more organized?
Oh and my baby brother is due in today with his wife and kids. He will stay at my sisters. I really do not need to worry about the house as he is not what I would call the best housekeeper, but I would like to at least have a meal for him.
I don't think we will be tilling the garden this weekend. I have to sew, move rock, laundry, move rock, clean, move rock, plant the flowers I bought, move rock, put away Easter, move rock.
I have been so good at debt payoff, I thought I was invincible. I am not.
In my favor, I have gotten dressed and fixed my hair and put on lipstick which looks so nice with my bib overalls. I have cleaned both bathrooms upstairs, and swept my shop. I have started the laundry and have clean laundry piling the bed in the master bedroom. I took all the wintered over geraniums out of the back hall and have them sunning on the deck.
I will hit my machines in a few minutes and try to bust out these now 6 prom dresses soon to be more. I think hamburgers on the back deck for dinner.
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
