Productive weekend

Howdy girlies, taking a few minutes to say hi. Hope you all had a great weekend. We did, albeit it was hot. Both days it was high 90's with a heat index of 105 or so. Not pleasant weather if you have to be outside for extended periods of time.

This weekend, I spend much time working in the house and getting things in order. Still working off my list, but making progress which is a great feeling. A few things I accomplished this weekend was, mounds of laundry (from being stored, etc) and replaced winter clothes for summery ones. Organized clothes and shoes in closet. I have 4 huge black garbage bags for goodwill. Reboxed the winter stuff to put away. At the same time I am working on mine, Tori is working on hers. Fortunately the house didn't need alot of attention as I had stayed up on it all week. Woo Hoo! Plus made dinners most nights. (*BG=big grin). The closet organization is something that I had been putting off, because I knew Michael was going to need room for his stuff to be moved in and my closet was a mess, put I had to make room in the dresser and armoire for some of his things. Since we got married, he has been using the portable closet in the basement. Which means he would shower on the third floor and run to the basement to change into his clothes. :) Funny!!! So once Michael gets his things moved upstairs we will be done with that little chore until the winter months.

I also had time to create a menu for the remainder of the month (can you believe a whole month of menus), and make out a grocery list. Michael and I went shopping yesterday and $324.00 later, we walked out of the store. But that should do it for food with the occasional stops for milk, bread, etc. I stock piled on some things that were on sale as well. I have a large pantry in my basement, which needs to be organized too...another project, but most of the stuff we got yesterday will go in there...but for now, the bags are sitting on my table, because I am going to clean out that pantry before putting anything else in there. Trying to do this methodically.

Believe it or not, this took most of my weekend. Can I say I was sore and tired when it was over. But feel good about the progress that was made. This is my second week of bringing my lunch to work too, so made myself a turkey sandwich on wheat, with loads for fresh fruit to snack on all day. And lets don't forget the water. LOTS of water. I know that I need to incorporate some exercise to my life...have been thinking about joining Curves as there is one in my hometown. Does anyone have any experience with them? Good or bad! Will let you know if I decide to do this. Just want to bite off more than I can chew...which I tend to do at times when things seem to be going relatively well. A major fault of mine.

Guess I will post this. Hope you all have a blessed Monday!
