I don't know about anyone else, but around 10:00 in the morning I start thinking about what I could be accomplishing at home if I were there instead of at work. I begin making a mental list of all the things I am going to accomplish once I get home. Once I walk through the doors to my home I instantly forget everything that was on my "list". Tonight, however, I am happy to report that I actually accomplished a couple of the things on my list. For supper I made tuna and noodles. After I cleaned up from supper I started in right away on finishing up the apples. I successfully canned 7 pints of apples in a yummy lightly sugared syrup. I admit to eating a couple spoonfuls of the apples during the process. In another day or two I'll be able to start in on the pears.
Right after finishing the canning April and I read a couple books. Then right before my eyes the meltdown began. It started because she wanted pop. Being the good mommy I told her no. Wow, talk about unleashing the beast! She was promptly sent to her room. Not 5 seconds later the doorbell rang - it was the Schwann's man. I told him that I wasn't going to order anything. I came back inside and shut the door. April apparently decided that she didn't like it that I ordered nothing and told me that I was a dummy for not ordering. Hm. Guess who isn't going to get to do ANYTHING for the next week?
Today's tip: Is how to make your own shower cleaner. (My mom actually emailed this to me.) Fill a 32 oz plastic spray bottle with 1 cup of vinegar, 2-3 tablespoons Dawn dishwashing liquid, 1 oz fabric softener, and enough water to fill the bottle. Spray the entire shower/tub after each bath/shower and after a few days it will sparkle!
