after being gone for over a week (and leaving my house in a disaster when I left :bag ) I really need this. However, I also have three sick kids so we will see what I can get done. :nails

.....it's been more than 5 minutes, but I got most of yesterday's groceries up, the dirty dishes in the dishwasher, sorted through some of the mail & spent a few minutes taking care of P

I was so on top of things earlier in the week, but as the week has gone on, I have gotten more and more tired and did not do anything yesterday!
I need to catch up because the baby could come any day (or not for 3 more weeks)

I unloaded the dishwasher, and here is my list...

load dishwasher
clear kitchen table
handwash dishes that need it
sweep kitchen floor
mop kitchen floor (or supervise kids with rags)
change eye appointment
work on coupon sorting
clean carpet in bedroom (probably won't do this one)
5 minutes on each dining room hotspot
bake something to freeze
make pregnancy tea
take supplements

put 3 loads of laundry away
wash and dry and put away one more load

I am exhausted just typing that.

So far I have taken care of kitty litter, put some bedding in the washer & made some important phone calls.

P is still asleep this morning :jawdrop & S just went down for a nap, so I am going to get to work seriously on the kitchen.

I have been working on the laundry for what seems like forever now.
I have put away what was in the dryer, put what was in the washer in the dryer, put a new load in the washer, and gotten some of the clean stuff gotten clean stuff that was in baskets folded and sorted, (but there is still more to go) and got some put away.

i don't know kimberly - i think i'll take the puke over P's experience today. i don't know what is going on with my little one lately. we're going on a week and a half of issues... 6 days of over100 temps, then extra-clingy and crying/screaming, that has been better yesterday and today... then she just threw up the one time. nursed since with no problem :shrug

sorry - back to 5 minute challenges! she just woke, so i need to go re-run wash and figure out dinner.
