Empty guest nest and being domestic
I knew that wasn't going to end well so I turned around quickly and I hear THUD and "ohhh." I went inside the house so when he turned around I wasn't there then I peeked around the corner and saw he was outside the garage and closed the garage door. Sorry bub, don't you try to come back and get my tax receipt because you broke it! I was a little ticked because there was nothing wrong with that desk. Sigh. Hopefully they were able to fix it.
As I was going up and down the stairs all day, I would take a bucket of paint up with me. I know that doesn't sound like much but we usually procrastinate and the 4 buckets of paint and accessories would've sat in our foyer until the template guy for the counters came Friday morning. So that's all cleared up.
My aunt is turning 50 soon so because I'm apparently some video wiz, I'm always nominated to do family slideshows. Well I didn't have a lot of pics from her childhood so I had to swing by Grandma's and get some photo albums and start scanning. I messed with a lot of the scans to breathe some life back into the pictures and I hope they'll all be happy with the end product. I won't even tell you I had over a month to do that and its needed on Sunday. *blush*
Not knowing what time the Mr was going to be home, I decided to chuck a bunch of stuff in the crock pot to make chili which means dinner would be covered for the next 2 nights. Then I got all domestic goddess and made brown rice and veggies and cilantro chicken for our lunches for the next 2 days. He usually makes his lunches after dinner at night and I wanted to save him some time so hopefully he just had to grab and go.
We did our research on granite countertops and talked to a lot of people about them getting varying opinions and okayed the counter company to come out tomorrow to make the template. Fact is, people expect it and as long as we take care of it, it should be fine. I got a call from the bank about "suspicious activity" and I said "was it for 2K because we just got countertops" and that was good with them. Luckily our bank has our backs.
On a final note, the wonderful blogger who inspired this post has put up an RSS and email subscription feed. I know many of you asked about subscribing to his blog so now you can! His birthday was Sunday so you can swing by and rib him about being 30 now. ;-)
When you cross stuff off of your "to do" list do you feel less stressed or always find something else to add to it?
