Busy, Busy Busy

Don't you just love the end of the month at work? Top that off with school starting back in a week and throw in dr. visits and you have a crazy busy week!!! So far this week I have been to three different dr. appointments. First up was hubby. Still having chest pains and shortness of breath. Doc is going to put a device in to record his heart if it drops below a certain # or above a certain #. Hopefully this will help and they can figure out what is going on!!! Next was myself to the Doc. Just a checkup, but I will be going in for an out-patient procedures in a couple of weeks as well. Female crap! Let's just say it's one step short of a hysterectomy. Finally eye visits for 2 of the punks. One checked out fine the other needs glasses! Plus, I have the shop to myself this week at work. Trying to get stuff out by end of the day. It sucks! So as I type I'm scarfing down my lunch. Next week schools starts back and I have lovely task of transferring punks from one school to another. I don't wanna do it but gas prices are forcing my hand. Also next week, I believe we have our first soccer meetings. I've about convinced myself that I was crazy for signing 2 up to play! Ok off to accomplish something, not sure what yet.

you gotta be kidding

I don't know who I thought I was kidding in my last post, I must be getting pretty good at lying to myself! HA! Overall I did manage to have my kitchen (at one time) clean, and threw away my damn coffee pot that quit working about a month ago! I also cleaned my bathroom completely, well ok I have vacuumed in there yet. Yes, my bathroom is carpeted, but that's another story. I also managed to get my sheets changed on my bed. I haven't tackled the mountain of clothes in my floor yet. Oh, and I unpacked Hubby's suitcase. Yep, it's been laying there since we return from MI. I did get a few good chuckles when he would get up during the night or morning and kick the damn thing!! My next plan is to tackle the bedroom. I also want to tackle our den (me and hubby disagree on the name of this room). The den is where clothes get thrown after coming out of the dryer. Sometimes folded others times not so much. It also houses my hubby's racing stuff. (I was nice there, I could have said racing shit!) And our old PC that doesn't work, a couple of old printers, a fax machine, a copier, and two filing cabinets. I so want to get in there and chuck about half of the crap! I'm gonna do it! Just not exactly sure when.

My house had been so damn hot. I live in the south, and the temps are anywhere between 90 and 100+ and add the humidity to that and it's miserable. Try living in that without any AC! Yes we were doing that. Did you catch that were part? We installed some AC units this weekend. YEAH!!! I slept a whole lot better. It does make it a little easier to clean now. Even though I still don't wanna do it!

I've decided that no matter what I do or don't do, my house will never be clean. Sure it my be straightened, but man is it cluttered. I need to de-clutter and throw some shit away. That would go a long way in helping the rest of the house. I just have a problem throwing stuff away. Add to that we have no freaking place to store anything!!!! Ok we have 7 people living in a 3 bedroom/2 bath home. Each of the smaller bedrooms house 2 girls each. In one we have a set of bunk beds, a dresser, and a chest and a closet. The dresser and chest are packed to the breaking point with clothes, the closet is a haven for toy storage. And also under the bed have boxes for toy storage. The other bed room has 2 twin beds and two small chest and closet. Same story for that room only less toys because most are in the other room. Our bed room has our queen bed plus a toddler bed, 1 lg dresser and 1 small dresser, 1 entertainment stand, 2 night stands with 2 drawers each and 1 closet. All are packed. With the exception of the small dresser because I've been sooo lazy and haven't put the punky 3's clothes in there! Our bathroom does have some storage for towels and linens but not much. I really really need to do some purging. But honestly I'm so freaking overwhelmed I don't know where to start, or how. I suck at being domesticated. My dear hubby has put up with so much of this from me too. Or I should say me and my punks. They take after their mom. Sucks for them and me. I'm thinking about logging what I actually get accomplished once at home besides the normal cooking dinner and bathing punk 3 and all that standard stuff. I think the saying "A woman's work is never done" comes into play here. I can do it. I think I can, I think I can.... repeated over and over in my head. Please don't let me land on my face when I get home. Let me accomplish something. Start small and work up. Right?

Back to normal?

We had a great vacation! Most of the punks did good. There were a few exceptions. I'm working on getting some pics together.
Now comes the adjustment of getting back to normal. If there is a normal that is. Some things are def. back, but that's a different story. Not really in the mood for details today.

Oh, did you hear that the price of oil has dropped over $10 in the past couple of days. Now when are the prices going to do down at the pumps? I were paying about $4.15 +/- on vacation, get back home and I loved paying the $3.87. Isn't that bad! How long before something changes? Do we all have to file bankruptcy? Come on!
