cleaning-sweep

THINGS I'VE ACCOMPLISHED THIS WEEKEND, SO FAR

Attended an AWC sushi night with friends

Took down all the curtains, washed them, did other things while my MiL ironed them all, put them back up. Several of them involved those little metal hook things that slip in the band and pleat it: I HATE THOSE THINGS. Every year I say I am never doing this job again. I say it again this year.

Stripped and changed the beds

5 loads of laundry, all together

Washed dishes and took out recyclables

Dusted almost the whole house

Vacuumed the whole house

Grocery shopped

Made a really yummy dinner for Martin and me (Karin and Anders were at a soccer overnight in Karlshamn)

Sorted & organized one of the kitchen cabinets that's been bugging me for awhile. How many water bottles do you suppose 2 sporty people in 1 family need? If you say 20, you'd apparently be right.

Emptied and cleaned the refrigerator, with Martin's (!) help

Watched 3 episodes of The 4400

Read a book, and half of another

Played Pumpkin Xplode on the iPad

Checked and answered email

Refilled hand-soap bottles

Cleaned out and potted pansies in 11 outdoor pots. Pansies!

Potted 4 new houseplants

Called a new AWC applicant

Watered all the houseplants

Took a 2 hour nap

Added 2 things to my Anticipation list: dog-sitting Mental next week, and cat-sitting for the neighbors the week after that!

Resorted to another list instead of a "real" journal post. Heh.

Enjoyed the sunshine, and the sight of the first giant bumblebee and first yellow butterfly of Spring!
