On the bright side, I have already done (or had help with) the majority of my regular weekly cleaning. The kids rooms are taken care of too. I just have to complete the office space set up now.
Step 2 - master list for errands. When I go out, I want to get everything I need in one trip. I do not want to have to run out again.
3. Get some laundry going! Keep up to that, one load a day and I won't go crazy. And I won't lose my Sunday to Mount Washmore again this week.
I had a relatively productive day, especially considering I had almost no sleep last night. I did get all my errands done, I also bought some items that will be good for Macboy's lunches. Things he can make himself or we can make fast, so I can keep my momentum going longer in the morning. Instead of stopping at 11:30 I can work until 12.
I am going to put Angel Baby in her room again for naptime the rest of this week. She is back to waking up at her earlier, more normal, time in the morning, so I am hopeful that we can reinstate the afternoon naps. Even if she doesn't sleep, we were both benefiting from the quiet time.
Today I also got most of the furniture place for my 'office'. At some point in this process I hope I stop feeling the need to add quotes to 'office!' I have a need for some shelving. I asked the Trucker if he could do it in a simple way. If it can't be done by him in less than 5 minutes, I don't want his help. It would mean he has already complicated what I asked for. I need a couple peices of wood, a certain length. (I think I'll just do it while he's at work tomorrow) I don't want permanent, or even pretty. I just need functional. And I don't want 'ideas' involved. Just do what I asked you for.
He said he'll try to make something work for me on the weekend.
Since I have a list in place, I know what laundry to start in the morning. I know what to take out of the freezer too, while I'm in there. I have no cleaning that I need to worry about. Art is a fan of the vacuum so I plan to give him that job on Friday.
I hope to be ready and able to WORK all of Wednesday and Thursday. No, scratch that...
I WILL be ready
