Day 1 and what have I done?

Well, my kids are on spring break and oddly enough, that means I am also. I thought if I kept tabs on my blog of the things I accomplish, it might make me turn off the hallmark channel and do something. (But that ole Charles Ingalls hauling wheat with four broken ribs is hard to turn off!)

Before 8:30 I scrubbed the ring of grunge off the kids bathtub.
I began sorting clothes to give away. Several different piles to several different destinations.
I planted seeds to start impatiens, snapdragons and coneflowers.
Returned some stuff to the store.
Oops, found a ridiculous sale.
One load of laundry through the washer and dryer.
Sorted the weekend's mail.
Grasping now, better go do something that sounds more productive. Like painting. Or frying chicken. Something.

Adorable baby in your profile picture. How old are your kids? My boys are on Spring Break right now also, and they're 11 and 6 years old. I'm not getting much accomplished here either, although your list was more impressive than mine. :o)

Comet Bathroom Cleaner is a spray solution that helps disolve that ring easily. That will help you spend less time cleaning and more time frying chicken for your friends who didn't banish their kids to OZ for the week. KU gets a #1 seed, and your kids are on holiday without you. Let me know how the weather is in Heaven.

At 70 degrees, the weather is fine...

Course if I go outside, it's rather chilly.

Rhea, my kids are 7, 6, 4 and 1.
