Weekend Work

I decided yesterday (after some input from Jay) that today, I wanted to be super-productive, and actually DO things like the dishes and the laundry and straighten up the living room today, so that tomorrow, I could actually do what I wanted, minus having to go to Jay’s folks’ for lunch. Normally, I put all that crap off until the last possible minute on Sunday–As in, if I decide to make breakfast, I wait until after Meet the Press to start washing the dishes I need, or wait until after we get home from Jay’s parents’ to start the laundry (I do at least have it sorted by then). And then I wonder why I’m scrambling and running around up until I fall into bed exhausted every Sunday night!

So this morning, around 7:30, I sorted the laundry and got it going. I also emptied the dishwasher, cleaned the science experiments out from the fridge, and washed a bunch of pots and pans. I realize it doesn’t exactly sound like any huge accomplishment, but they’re all tasks I’d rather put off as long as possible. While I did that, Jay and the bambino tidied up the living room, which looks rather nice:


I got the laundry finished around 4:00, then got started on tonight’s dinner. Scalloped potatoes with ham:


And a side the bambino actually requested:


Green beans! I was surprised when he requested them, especially since he gagged while eating them, but I won’t turn down a request for a green vegetable. Lord knows I need to eat more of them myself. After dinner, I got into some ice cream:


Oh, Blue Bunny. How I love thee.


Chunks of chocolate and peanut butter. This ice cream will not last long. I can confidently say that it will probably be gone by this time tomorrow night.

And because I got all my work done today, I can lay around and do whatever I want tomorrow! Which, actually, I want to make cupcakes…And I’m going to make manicotti for tomorrow night’s dinner. I’m already excited for the leftovers!

Sharing is caring!

  1. There is nothing better than Blue Bunny ice cream!

    I do the same thing with the household chores…I got out of bed early this morning and took care of everything so that I can bake and read and watch tv this afternoon!
