Today: Saturday, April18, 2009
Outside My Window: BLIZZARD! it has been snowing all night and all day. We’ll see how much is actually on the ground when the wind stops!
Today’s Goal: Get everything from our trip unpacked and put away; sort laundry.
Today’s Plan: Make menus for next week and a shopping list.
Today’s Tea: Mexican Winter – it is so warming with its pepper berries.
Today’s Tidbits: Today is the last day we are in FlyLady’s Zone 3 (Main Bathroom plus One Other Room). Since we cleaned the bath room before we left on our trip, it is in good shape. The back room is also in good shape, so maybe just a once over on the counters and vacuuming the floor is in order.

Today’s Tidbits: We are in FlyLady’s Zone 1 (Entrnce, Front Porch and Dining Room). The kids are helping me by doing the dusting and cleaning the fronts of the washer and dryer. I wonder if painting them would be a good idea to freshen them up a bit (the washer and dryer, not the kids). Does anyone have any ideas?
