house beautiful

i watched an episode of "the middle" this weekend..
the mom was given "a day to herself" for mother's day..
 the was overjoyed at the her kids and husband headed off..
she wandered around the house..organized the junk drawer
and that led her to defrost the freezer...found an old unpaid bill
and spend hours on the phone pressing one for english..etc..
 at around 7pm she realized she had realized the whole day
had been wasted on little tasks that could have
been saved for another day (well except the bill)..
so here comes my president's day off..bound and determined i
would not waste it.. woke up at the fridge..

ready to make a nice big breakfast for my husband and i.. 
the eggs expired yesterday..the milk a week ago..
(i have an excuse..we've been out of town..i really am more up
 to date in my fridge) ..trip to the store ..milk..eggs..
 pancake mix.. ate vday chocolate on the way..pancakes
didn't sound good anymore..husband ate a  frozen sausage
 biscuit..poor husband..he could have had pancakes.. got back
 and started laundry..six loads mind you.. which led me to rotating
 my winter/spring clothes..lining up my shoes by flipflops/heels/boots
 and by color.. folding clothes..which led me to organizing
dresser drawers..and jewelry drawers (i hate untangling jewelry!)
and organizing junk drawers (they do look amazing!)
..then dusting the dresser..end tables.. finding gifts that i had
saved to mail to friends...looking for addresses..baking muffins
 for friends..taking photos of cute muffins i made for friends..
packing up packages.. cleaning the counter of valentines
cards/candy/teacher gifts i received..thinking wow the
 counter looks bare! ..making flower arrangement for the counter..
got out the flowers..why not make another for the end table..
 it storms...stew would be cozy.. hence my day off..
i did pay some bills : )  i do feel accomplished.. we will have clean
 clothes for the week.. i'll be able to easily accessorize..
we have eggs and milk...  the apartment is pretty again..
and my friends are getting surprise packages in the mail..
AND i found the password to my blog!
