Today's Progress

July 9th, 2008 at 03:41 am

Cleaned the freezer.

It wasn't very planned or anything, but struck me afterwards as a simple 10-minute exercise we should try every day (clean something/anything).

Found: chocolate chips

Tossed: Lots of french fries?

Anyway, I was looking for hot dogs, since dh ran to the post office and I was stuck with dinner duty. I was actually shocked we didn't have any. But I was thinking to the kids' party this weekend and how we needed freezer space (as I rooted through all the freezer goods thinking, "there must be SOME hot dogs in here." There weren't.

The freezer wasn't very crowded but I had cookie dough in there I bought in like 2004.

So I spotted that and thought, "That has to go. Now! BEfore the trash pickup."

So yeah, there was some frozen tater tots and fries, and some frozen peaches that were ancient.

Not too bad.

I couldn't find a date on the chocolate chips and not sure how old, but we need them for the weekend. I think they are okay. I guess I will try some first before I plan the party around them. That may be good. Wink

Most of the veggies had a 2009 date. So that is something. But for the peaches, we just tossed "junk."


I am $50 richer today thanks to Ebay. Big Grin

Dh is $320 richer thanks to the sale of his other Wii. (This week is night and day from last week - was so SLOW on the Wii front last week).

My wallet $20 is replenished and dh has about $600 cash for further buying and selling.

I think my checking account is okay and I can earmark my MLM final sale profits to charity. Is my goal as of today. I need to check my checking account balance before I get too excited about this plan though.

I have a couple of other small ebay things closing this week, but I don't expect much.


Today is my last day of being a mom to a "baby."


We spent a chunk of the evening looking at LM baby photos.

It still throws me off how strong that "baby instinct" is sometimes. I am very happy to never have another child again. VERY happy. It's all too fresh and I am still exhausted from the last few years. Put looking at those pictures was like holding a newborn in my arms. It gets me every time.

Luckily dh and I can usually talk some sense into each other when we get in those moments. Wink

Someone was just telling me the other day that goes away when you get *old.* Phew.

But for today I am a little melancholy that my 2-year-old will be 3 tomorrow. It's like it just hit me I no longer have a baby or a toddler in the house.

& those pictures were really the double whammy. They just grow up so fast!

    I heard that if you devote 15 min every day to house cleaning, an average house will be near spotless. Thats all it takes. I followed that then fell off the wagon. The house benefited from that 15 min though. I gotta get back into that routine.

    When my DH says that he wants to try for a little girl, I say go ahead. You can have as many as you want as long as you carry them and give birth to them.

    My mother's cousin once told me that she wished she could "bonsai" her little boys. Even tho I don't have children of my own, I can still understand the sentiment. Those "little boys" are now post-graduates ... One in medical school and one studying environmental law. I'm glad they didn't stay small forever ... Our world needs great men like that.
