Shhh! Don’t jinx the quiet.

It’s 9:42pm. Both kids are in bed AND quiet. First time that’s happened before 11pm in a good two weeks! I’m so excited!

Ok, so Matthew did throw a major fit, screaming and throwing things, before he finally got quiet… at least he *did* get quiet. =) At one point I told Meagan she could sleep in my room tonight if she wanted to (because he was pitching such a fit), and guess what she did. She climbed down from the bed, came into the living room where I was and conspiratorially whispered, “I’m not going to so he won’t be scared, but I will give you a hug and a kiss”. My big, sweet girl! She’s such a good big sister. Most of the time.

I was actually hoping for an 8:30pm in-bed time, but when the hot water faucet handle in the tub (yes, tub! Mike got it fixed last week after only 14mo!) came apart at 8:15pm I knew I was outta luck. You’d think since it was Matt in the tub, I could have still made the mark, since he *hates* getting clean anyway. Nope, he had to finish his bath. I guess the novelty of a bath instead of a shower is still strong enough to keep him clean.

In other news…haha…I ordered a new cookbook yesterday and bought an ebook for Science class today. The printer Bro3 bought me for Christmas is still just a stand-alone since I don’t have the new computer with Windows XP on it yet, so I had to bring hubby’s printer in and hook it up so I could start printing out the lapbook for science. It only took about 7 HOURS to get the sucker installed. I don’t know what the problem was, it just kept hanging up at 9%. UGG Anyhoo, it’s installed now so I can print off the computer again. Yea!

Since I am a flybaby again with, I’ve been trying to get into the habit of doing the weekly home blessing and the missions and so forth. Being achy and tingly and just blech-sick doesn’t make that easy, but after reading some articles about clutter and de-cluttering and stuff and de-stuffing this weekend, I was determined to get started again. I’m working on de-cluttering and getting some projects worked on and/or finished. So here’s what I did today:

*mucked out the pots/pans cabinet, threw out two pots and the 40+ yr old ‘shelf-liner’, there are some lids that I don’t think go to anything, but I’m waiting till tomorrow when I muck out the skillet/appliance cabinet to throw them out. They just might fit one of the big skillets.
*weekly home blessing was only pick-up, sweep, and mop the living room and empty all trash. I’ll change our sheets before I climb in bed tonight.
*cut out fabric for a pair of Valentines culottes for Meagan
*de-cluttered a small trash bag full of clothes out of my closet
*got the printer installed
*got the shelf boards for Matt’s closet primed (they closet was supposed to be done back in Sept.)
*took my first test in my new bible course…I made a 95! I was so scared to take the test because I just knew I would bomb it! =)

Overall I think I got a decent amount done today, all things considered. Still on the list for this week:

*paint the boards for Matt’s closet
*go to library
*go grocery shopping and make list of aisles for ease of list-making
*de-clutter 15min each in dining room, hall, pantry, and kids room
*get the dishtowel currently in the embroidery hoop finished
*sew culottes for Meagan

Since this week’s ‘zone’ is the kitchen, I also have specific areas in the kitchen I plan on attacking each day.

It’s now 10:17pm. Think I’m going to go run the dishwasher and then snatch 15-20min playtime before going to bed earlier than I have since mid-January! =)
