My "day off"

Yesterday I took a day off since the boys didn't have school. It wasn't much of a day off:

Boys up and dressed
Made muffins for breakfast
Did laundry and dishes
Went to the big house and cleaned a bedroom floor, primed the living room
Lunch for the boys
Annual physical for the boys
Playground
Two parent/teacher conferences
Dinner and bed

Today was similar, except I conned Mark into taking the boys with him to his first base ball game of the season. I had the whole afternoon to myself, during which time I caulked the upstairs bathroom and painted all of it. Don't get the wrong idea. I'm doing the easy work over there. Mark's been hanging drywall (even on the ceiling!) and taping, mudding, and sanding (and mudding and sanding some more). The hope is to get the toilet in tomorrow so we'll have an actual, working bathroom!

Nice to do once in a while. :)

Whoa, can you come on over here for a painting party? ;-) I thought you guys were renting this house...but all this work?

Debbie, the house we're currently living in is a rental, but we bought a house (a foreclosure) in January and we're trying to get moved in. It didn't have any plumbing thus the lack of a toilet. We've had the plumbing completely redone and are now doing the finish work ourselves.
