Exhausted. That's all I can say to describe today. Sunday was an exhausting day. It went on for 18 hours. It was long.
We rearranged the entire living room. Including the entertainment stand that is so heavy it takes 50 men to lift. Evan and his dad put together the coffee table and the two end tables. They are FABULOUS. We got the living room set up. I picked up the bedroom. I picked up the kitchen. I even cleaned off the top of the microwave that hasn't been "cleared off" since last JULY. Seriously. I picked up the scrapbook room and the office. The computer desk was lost with piles of books and magazines and papers. Things to do. Things to file. Things for Taxes. UGH... Computer and gadget software and manuals. Finally. Clean.
I picked up the bathroom, picked up the dining room. Did laundry. Washed Sheets and bedding and towels and rugs. Organized shoes. Husband took out the garbage TWICE. My house was a force to be reckoned with. It kicked my ass. But I did it. Then at 1am I made spinach dip, ranch dip, taco dip, and then I was like MUST SLEEP. And so I did. This morning I loaded the dishwasher, I switched Laundry, I got ready for work. I let the dogs outside. exhausted.
My feet and back hurt so badly on Sunday that I took Excedrin three times. Ugh.
Now my house is clean. Tonight is the longaberger open house, and next Sunday is Carrie's baby shower. I am ready. As ready as I will ever be.
The cleaning people come today to actually "clean" (all I did was pick up, sort, organize, and vacuum since we were moving furniture around) and I am sure the house will be smelling fantastic by this evening. I Have 7 Yes RSVP's, and while it isn's a HUGE party, I will be glad to see those people and have some company.
:) Here's to a glass of wine followed by a nap!
