Labor Day

I love vacation days. I love not having to get up for school and having Rhett home for an extra day. We didn't have any plans for today; we talked about doing lots of different things, but we never pursued anything. That was a good thing since Porter woke up sick this morning. So I figured since we couldn't go anywhere, I would get my many chores done around the house. Today I:

* got all the laundry done (tomorrow's chore is putting it all away)
* cleaned two of the three bathrooms (tub and all with Ajax)
* changed and washed all of our bedsheets
* mopped the kitchen floor (and we'll give Rhett credit for vacuuming the kitchen, living and family rooms)
* made bread
* made an apple pie
* made rice krispy treats (with a yummy new recipe I found)
* went to Wal-Mart for all the things we are out of

Happy Labor Day!

That sounds a lot like our labor day... true "LABOR" DAY.

Give yourself a pat on the back! Yeah Stephanie! Way to be productive! Doesn't it feel great to actually accomplish something at the end of the day? May you have many more to come.

Can you come to my house next? I haven't felt like I've accomplished that much in one day in a while! Maybe today will be my day :) Or maybe I have and I just need to write it all down for once and so I can recognize it!

Hey Stephanie, first, I LOVE the picture of you on your header. You are too cute in that family of boys. Second, I am going to do some research for that yucky mildew stuff. I did read something about using olive oil, but that can be pricy too, in that you have to use a whole bottle of oil for one plant and who knows how long that has to go on. I will keep you in mind if I figure anything out. It's such a bummer, isn't it! I hope your pumpkins survive until October; things don't look too hot for us here. Bummer! I didn't realize you had so many blogs. I'm headin' to the fit one now!
