Last weekend, we had a pair of contractors come in, tear down the deck, and build us a set of steps up to the back door. It revealed a lot of slightly dangerous mess under where the deck was. I've got some picked up, but there's a lot more to do. Including adding twelve feet of fencing.
I managed to get the path to the back door cleared, yesterday. Made it a lot easier to get the back yard cleanup started. Made for some happy kids, too, both yesterday afternoon and this morning.
I got the shopping done, with two kids on Spring Break in tow. That...wasn't fun, for all that they're much better behaved than the majority of children I see shopping with their parents. I think this summer, shopping's going to be done early Saturday morning, either with Odysseus, or with Odysseus watching the kids while I go do it.
I have a load of laundry in the dryer, and another in the washer. Once those are finished, I'm going to pull all of my daughter's clean clothes and rewash those--the rash she's had for a month and a half isn't what I thought it was, it's an allergic reaction to the dryer sheets I've been using for about the same length of time.
I have the dishwasher unloaded, the dirty dishes loaded, and the dirty dishes loaded with the hand wash only done.
I think I've earned a coffee break.
And after that, I've got the laundry to finish, and the living room to clean up. And more to do in the bedrooms.
