Had the day off (I work 4-10s - although I did work yesterday for some OT!) so I like to make it as productive as possible -
Washed the outside of the appliances, washed the kitchen floor (hands and knees washed...), scraped the paint off the windows (painted the kitchen 2 weeks ago) and washed them, rehung the valance, applied another coat of drywall mud to the dining room wall that I patched, cleaned up all the supplies that have lived by such patch for a while, washed the hardwood floor in the dining room, moved all the furniture back to their correct spots in the living and dining rooms (I painted those rooms Saturday - except the one wall I patched - that'll get painted next Saturday), made the bed in the guest room (my daughter's coming for a visit next week!), changed my sheets, dusted and vacuumed the house (I have a small 1100 sf ranch so that doesn't take too long), swept the basement stairs (can't remember the last time I did that. Ugh.) and have a meeting set up with my accountant to start my taxes later today.
Since it's pretty decent out, I want to clean up some of my landscaping too. Old leaves are still hanging around some of my bushes and it drives me crazy. :)
For this month - I've painted my kitchen walls, cabinets and trim, painted my living/dining room ceiling, trim and walls, patched an opening in my dining room where there used to be a large group of glass block windows (weird), and set up my guest room with a borrowed bed from my boyfriend's mom (she sold her house and let me borrow it until her new house is built - perfect for my daughter's visit!), ordered and picked up a remnant rug for the guest room (bound 7'x10' rug for $141 including tax!), rehung a kitchen cabinet over my fridge (I had removed it because the fridge was too tall but my bf cut out part of the flooring under the fridge - you can't see it - so the fridge sits a little lower. Problem solved!), helped my son do his taxes, and probably a couple other small things. I also picked up a lot of OT! Tomorrow I picked up another OT shift so I'm working 7am-10pm - so no more odd chores for me this month. :)
