Move It Monday

Here we are again, another great start to another great week! I am hopeful for this week. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow, a baby shower on Thursday..possibly a play date on Wednesday, and Lord willing, some time at the gym tonight! Today is Columbus day, so my oldest doesn't have to do school work, so we won't do schoolwork with any of the kids today. I plan to use the extra time to go through more stuff and pull more out for the garage sale this weekend.

A side note...I've always thought this Holiday was so silly. We take a whole day off to recognize someone who found the wrong country, and "discovered" a land, that already had people inhabiting it! I mean, people can't discover something that other people have already discovered! ;P. No, I get it, I do..don't get mad at me. I've just always seen it from a silly point of view!

So anyway, today I hope to get a lot accomplished even though I am very stiff and have been in more pain the last two days. I did get a lot done Saturday, and am so thankful for that. I went through all of the girl's stuff in their rooms and pulled out a bunch of things to sell! They should have a better time keeping that room clean now! :-) Today I want to get done:

3 loads of laundry

Go through movies

Go through hall closet

Move table into my room

Organize my bedroom corner of crafts (this could take a few days)

Work on hubby's afghan (this could take until next hunting season.) I haven't attempted an afghan for over two years because of the pain in my hands. I'm just going to take little by little, no rush. He loves it when I make him blankets though, and he wants a camouflage afghan. So, I'll give it my best shot! I hope you all have a wonderful Columbus Day!...or two...depending on what day you recognize it!


  1. Sounds like you are getting lot's done for your garage sale! That is great!

    So sorry about your hands hurting. Mine to do, and they are really bothering me today. (my hands and arms) Probably because of the rain that we had yesterday and possibly today...

    I forgot to add laundry to my list. I had four loads to do today- 2 are done, 1 is in the dryer, and 1 is in the washer. Fun!

    Have a great week!

  2. I'm sorry you're in pain again, but thankful the Lord has provided a doctor's appointment for you tomorrow. Try to take it easy (though your list doesn't look like a take it easy type of list).

    I love your Columbus day rant - so true and funny! That got more than a chuckle out of me! Have a blessed day.

  3. I am sorry also that your hands are hurting. Arthritis? Hope you get some relief and can get to the cause of the symptoms.
