Did I Do A Lot Today?



So here is what I did today. You tell me if you think I got anything done.

Woke up at 6:30am (let’s be honest, I didn’t get up until about 6:50am with a lot of prodding from Juice) and went to the local church. I helped bag over 200 shares of food for Thanksgiving. I came home with 2 bags of food and a turkey. (I now have 2 turkeys. I am crazy.)

Home by 8am. Fed myself breakfast and got the kids all dressed. Juice got ready and I boxed up 2 boxes of kid books and 2 boxes of board games. I fought with the packing tape that kept tearing and ripping. SO frustrating.

By 9:45am, we were ready to head out the door. We stopped off at our storage unit and dropped off the boxes, plus the extra seat to our van. That way we have room to pack the van with boxes and the seat doesn’t have to be in our house.

By 10:15am, we were headed down the road to Ikea. We discovered at 11:20am that ALL of our kids can go into their Smaland (which is their child care area) and we were thrilled! We giggled as we left them swimming in a pit of balls and went on our merry way. We sat on couches. We discussed what kind would be go in our “new” house that we haven’t even bought yet. We saw people from our church there who were couch shopping too!

After lamenting the price of couches, buying new lights for our kitchen and a few other impulse buys, we went back for our kids. Lunch was next on the agenda, and we all had meatballs. Well, Pirate had macaroni and cheese. And some of my meatballs.

We picked up our shelf, browsed the As-Is section, and then loaded the kids into the car. We drove to the LDS bookstore from there, and bought a few things. Juice won a book. The kids all got free candy and flag pins. I got a free Christmas CD.

When we got home around 4pm, we listened to our messages. We had locked our storage unit open. Oops! Juice started to install the new kitchen lights and I ran to the storage unit to fix the problem.

While dinner was cooking (macaroni and cheese, second time for Pirate today!), I helped Juice install the lights. It is now brighter in our kitchen. We discovered we bought the wrong shelf and made plans to go back to Ikea. We broke up a few fights.

We had dinner about 6pm, and then Juice took everyone up to have baths. I did a few reviews and ate way too much candy.

Which brings us to now.

So, do you think I accomplished anything?

Oh I know! I washed all the sheets today. Go me!

    I got my sofa at Costco. It was cheaper and much more durable than Ikea. No pre-made slipcovers, though.
