I have nothing to write about right now. We spent a large part of the day cleaning house, because we have our Thanksgiving dinner party next weekend and Anders will be gone on all week and there's no time on the day to do anything but prepare food and get the tables ready. So the big cleaning has to happen this weekend.

I wrote a list of chores this morning and got everyone moving after lunch. I told the kids they had to pick at least 2 of the items on the list. Martin picked windexing and the toilets. Karin picked vacuuming and helping with the fishtank, and they both picked emptying garbages and taking out the recycleables because they always do those together. Anders started laundry and I continued it.

I washed dishes, dealt with the food garbage, picked up, cleaned the bathrooms including the completely disgusting, hair-filled well under the bathtub (ICK), dusted, filled the bird feeders, and started the fish tank. Anders mopped half the house, which: YAY!

Other than that, I've been reading and grocery shopping and we got chinese take-out for dinner and now we're trying to decide what movie to watch tonight. Martin has mentioned Good Will Hunting. I suggested The World According to Garp. Last night, we watched A Few Good Men, and I had wanted to watch The Hunt For Red October, so maybe I'll throw that one out there again.

The rest of the cleaning will get done tomorrow, plus I have a bunch of other online things to deal with. I hope you are having a lovely, productive, yet relaxing weekend, too!
mood: accomplished
music: SNL on TV


I second The Hunt for Red October! We watched it last month when the Swedish navy were out hunting after that Russian sub off the coast. It's a great film and it hasn't dated one bit. I was amused by the name of the political officer onboard. Very telling :-)

Tonight we are going to watch Departures which looks really interesting. Last night a Spanish movie with Swedish subtitles. Tonight a Japanese movie with Swedish subtitles. I live in a surreal world :-)

I can't believe that it's almost turkey day again. I hope you have a wonderful party. I'm really impressed that you cleaned so thoroughly and roped in the kids to help. Who got to dust all the moose?

Please please Liz, come and clean my house. Just joking.

I have actually spent a good portion of the morning today on those house cleaning tasks too, and will do so tomorrow also. I have people over tomorrow in the evening with a birthday party to go to before.

Oh, it must feel so nice in your house now! I feel like I hardly sat down today. I was running from one thing to the next and it has been snowing all day, so the driving was the white-knuckled variety. I am glad to be going to bed! xo
