Holy 2 in one day...

Alright... so day I have been productive. Why? Possibly so that I can put off quilting my brothers quilt. I have it all pin together and I am ready to start! I choose to believe my delay is due to my quilting/working guilt. I am going with the statement that I can't do my "free time" work unless the house is clean. Or cleaner as the case maybe. So I vacuumed, did the dishes (OK those had to be done if I wanted to eat, cook, or walk into the kitchen), dusted, spot treated (which I think worked!! Praise resolve!) and would like to start a load of laundry. We'll see how that goes. Maybe this will ensue some guilty husbandness... or maybe this is a guilt wife reaction. He did mow, wash two dogs, a cat, and clean up the porch yesterday with out me.

With all the said I still have a list of to do. Some of it will be accomplished today... some tomorrow on my day off... hopefully all of it down by my Saturday off!
