Lots of work to do today!!

Set your timer for 5 minutes and then come back and post what you did so that the rest of us get up and do something for 5 minutes.

I am stuck at home all day w/o the van again, so I will be here a lot. I will be doing school with the kids, but also my list is long.

Here is what is on it so far.


Wipe kitchen walls
clean pantry
clean kitchen trashcan
vacuum downstairs
mop kitchen floor (carried over from yesterday)
fix slipcover and pillows in living room
clean tub in children's bathroom
work on dining room table
get labor music ready
make lists for DH
laundry
laundry
more laundry
help A and N clean their rooms

I have the fact that I can barely walk today counting against me. Hopefully that will improve as I move around more.
