I got home Friday night and posted about how good it was to be home, but blogger ate it and I was too tired to even remember what it was I said. I went to bed before the children and slept the sleep of the just.
Yesterday, I got up and got my day started. Riley and I went to the store to get some Diet Coke, without which I wouldn't have been able to get through the day. Here is a list of things I got accomplished:
- Finished painting the kitchen
- Cleaned the kitchen
- Cleaned out the shed
- Cleared out the flower beds, with the help of my Mom, Grandma, and Riley
- Mowed the lawn...ok, well, the neighbor boy mowed the lawn, trimmed the edges, cleaned up the trimmings
- Had a great time hanging out with Elizabeth and Doc
Of course, I'm paying for all that accomplishment today. I'm a bit sore and still kind of sleepy, but the sun is shining and I believe I've got everything I need. I'm also looking forward to Monday to return to work with an amazing team doing worthy and necessary work.
