Friday, Kim has earned less this week than....

     I hate to admit this as I did get home Sunday evening prepared to jump right back into my old life and as of this moment (Friday morning almost 8 am) I have sewn less for the week than I have sewn on most days before vacation.  In fact less than 1/2 of what I would normally do on a day..... maybe I should get busy.

     Baby boy was very fussy yesterday and I spent a good deal of time walking the floor and rocking him to get him to sleep.  Poor little munchkin, ear infections are painful.  He is on an antibiotic now and much better from what I hear.

Hubs knew it was a hard day yesterday and asked if I wanted to go and get something for dinner, but I had everything for steak fajita's, so I said no and we had those instead.  But I did appreciate his offer. Baby boy usually is glued to Hub's hip, but when he is sick it is me only. I have now used up all the veggies I bought for Hubs before I left, so they were not wasted.

     I was able to run out and get my blood work done when the littles were napping, and hubs ran out to check his calendar at the high school. He is going into his busy season, with school concerts and shows. In fact he works tonight starting at about 3 this afternoon.  I'll have to run some dinner to him.

     Yesterday while I was feeding littles, I tried to get a few things done in the kitchen.  What I discovered is that my kitchen is dirty.  I mean you could walk in and see that it was picked up but this whole house is in such a need of a really deep clean.  I really need my Sissie to come out.  I have depended on her for too many years to do this.  When mom was alive Sissie would come and go through this house like a white tornado and I didn't have to do it.  But that has not happened now for well over a year.  Crap!  You mean I have to really clean this place for myself?  I think I will sell.....

     With no littles here today I have no excuse not to get my butt into the shop and get busy.  I also could maybe finish the laundry I started on Tuesday and do some ironing.  I know I have to make a quadruple batch of scones to use up leftover cream in the fridge.  I will freeze some and also have them ready for choir practice on Sunday.

     If I can get all the laundry done and the ironing I can go through my clothes and switch out summer and winter. Something that really needs to be done. Hmmm.... Sounds like so much work.

     I do believe I might get as much done today as that list above.

Rhonda (If you do stuff, stuff gets done), I may need some inspiration.  Send me some mojo please.

What are you guys going to do?  Any plans for the weekend?

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

Kim

    1. Well I did do a little, but not as much as usual. I think if there had been donuts I could have worked harder, just sayin.

  2. You will get back in the swing of things soon enough. And taking care of sick littles is draining.

    This weekend it is suppose to be cooler, so maybe I will get some yardwork done or work on the garage. Sat night the kiddos will spend the nigh, church on Sunday and then a nap.

  3. Hi Kim,

    So sorry that the little one has an ear infection. I hope he gets better quickly.

    Give yourself some grace. We all need days where we do very little so we can rest and get our "batteries" charged up again.

    Funny you should mention the kitchen. The sun is pouring in here today and all I see is dust everywhere and I just dusted two days ago. So I have been deep cleaning my kitchen most of the day. That was after I went to Aldi's and got my Thanksgiving Butterball turkey- 20 pounder. I was able to get it in the freezer with room to spare. We are eating more from it so that I can get more in.

    On Saturdays and Sundays, I do whatever I feel like at the moment. I will probably do more cleaning in the kitchen and get it Thanksgiving ready. Enjoy your weekend.

    1. So my house is not the only lace with a dust fairy? I swear it pours down from some where.

  4. I understand that ear infection thing. Poor little guy. My youngest son had an ear infection that the doctors couldn't seem to cure, after 5 different antibiotics. An ENT specialist tried an antihistamine on a whim, and it got rid of the fluid that was causing the infection. What a relief, especially after an ER visit at 2:00 a.m. for an allergic reaction to amoxicillin.

  5. Poor little fella. You'll be back in your groove in no time. As for me, I spent the morning catching up on blog reading and writing. The afternoon was spent bringing firewood to the garage and stacking part of the additional load we recently had delivered.

    1. Stacking firewood, almost as much fun as moving sprinkler pipe.

  6. The Prudent Homemaker and the Amish around us use garlic oil drops for ear issues.
    Maybe your body is trying to tell you that you need to slow down with how much you take on in the shop???
    I have 3 rooms fall cleaned and we are having Jan weather now through at least this week as I am in north west Ohio.

    1. I was thinking about ear drops. I remember my mom warming up oil and putting it in our ears with a cotton ball as a kid.

  7. I am pretty sure you work rings around most of us humans even when you think you are sitting still!
