Good Afternoon.............Now for a post about my day


Good afternoon all, yes here I am starting today's post after a productive day more or less, first when I got up at around 6ish I did a load of washing, unpacked the dishwasher read some blogs pegged the washing on the line, read some more blogs.

Then I really got my ass into gear and washed the kitchen floor, honestly I don't know why I put it off so much it is a breeze to do with the steam mop. I spray the floor with floor cleaner and used the steam mop on it takes 5 minutes then I wash the mop head and redo it all up takes less then 10 minutes to do. I just put it off and put it off till the floor looks like it hasn't been done in months if not longer.

Next I cleaned the bath and toilet and then I went and dragged out my gift box and made a list of everything in it along with the layby I got out a few weeks back and then I found a book and wrote down family members names and listed what I had for that person. Now I also have two boxes that arrived this morning from Chrisco which will have gifts in them, to open and see what is there and those things to my lists.

Oh yeah I also took a couple of things to my sister's place that I no longer wanted and she said she would like and some old books Kathy was getting rid off which I dropped off at my niece Samantha's place for her daughter Hayley.

So I have done stuff today, Tim yesterday was complaining that I spend most of the day on the computer doing nothing and that I only do housework once a week, what a load of rubbish if I only did it once a week he would know it. It's the old saying they never notice how much you do till you stop doing it.

Ok I just went and got the clothes off the line and that reminds me I ironed Tim's work shirts also this morning. I am not going to lie and tell you I am always this busy during the day I am not but I am not as lazy as Tim seems to think I am either.

When I got to get Leo this afternoon Jessica wants me to get some things for her from Coles which of course I will do because well that is me, I do things like that.

Oh yeah I just remembered I think we have Blain tonight which is fine I don't mind having him but I might suggest to Natasha that since I am not have Leo each week now that I will only have Blain every second week the week I know Tim will be home so that Tim can get to see Blain as well.


Ok I have rambled on about nothing long enough I will now post this.

You certainly have been very busy today. We women have days like that.

Goodness, that is a busy day. I'm enjoying a rare day off since it's election day, the schools are closed and that is just fine by me!

It's sometimes hard for these men to imagine what we do with our entire days, until they're home to see it themselves. When my hubby has a sick day, he suddenly becomes extra appreciative--not that he isn't always appreciative. I think it's just easy to forget, know what I mean?

That is for sure and of course Tim didn't notice the kitchen floor to I mentioned it

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

I day off is always nice, well a day off when one has nothing to do is nice and day off spent running around doing stuff maybe not so much

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yes I do know what your mean, I remember when I was first married my nan said to me when Tim has a day off do what you would normally do during the day then spend time with him so he can see how you spend your day, if you don't do what you normally do and just spend the day hanging out with him he will not get to see and understand how much you do during the day and she was right.

I don't think I did that much at work for 8 hours! At least, it doesn't look as much like I did!

I am exhausted just reading about everything you did! Wherever you get your energy from, please let me know because I sure could use it!

It would never occur to me that you are lazy. You are always doing something in your own house, or helping a family member. I don't know why, but I put off using the steam mop, too. It's silly. My floors all need a good cleaning.

Love,
Janie

It gives you a good feeling when you accomplish a lot in one day. Well done. Men have no idea what we do.I'm sure they think clothes get washed ironed, folded and put away all by themselves.

Crystal Collier said...

I know! My hubby has worked from home the last two days and hi-jacked between 2 and 6 hours of each day. I'm struggling to keep up and just want to tell him, "Do you know how much I have to get done? BACK UP OFF." ;)

Carol Kilgore said...

So true about anyone not noticing what others do until they don't do it. You did a lot. Wanna come to my house? :)

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yea I like to get my jobs done around the house first thing of a morning if I can so I can have the rest of the day to do nothing much

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

I am a first thing of the morning person, up dressed and get stuff done around the house some days I seem to have more energy then others

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Thank you for saying I am not lazy if only I could convince Tim that I am not lazy it does hurt me when he says I am because I do,do a lot most days

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yes I agree sometimes I wonder how Tim thinks his clothes get from the floor in his office (where he drops them when he gets home from work) to his wardrobe all nice and clean and ironed

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yeah at times I feel like doing nothing to make a point of how much I do around the house each day.

Update on mum

After getting up this morning and throwing a load of washing on to wash I get a phone call from Sandra just as I was thinking of ringing...
