Productive is not a word that I'd use to describe myself of late. But today, today we made up for it and it's with great satisfaction I can sit on the couch and veg for the rest of the evening! I got a bunch crossed off my to-do list today; sadly, the list is still quite long. But here's a few accomplishments:
-Washed every one's bed linens and hopefully all the nasty germs that have been lingering around here.
-Rearranged Haven's bedroom. It's been the same for 2.5 years. I love this house, but its rooms are not created for furniture variety. But we made the most of it in Hay's room and I think I like the change.
-Got a head start on Valentine's for Haven's school party this week. Have I mentioned how much I love my Silhouette?!
-As seen above, I also gave myself a manicure. And a pedicure. And dyed my hair. It was a veritable salon around here!
-Painted tiny toenails sparkly pink.
-Cooked something new for dinner that was a hit: Crock-pot Lettuce Wraps. The kids opted for rice bowls, but Cale and I ate ours in some lovely red leaf lettuce topped with mushrooms, scallions, shredded carrots and cilantro.
-Tried Siracha for the first time (see above). We are not usually spicy people, so I was surprised how much I liked it. Haven tried it, thought she liked it and then her lips starting burning. Mati ate it no problem. He's a true Ethiopian with taste buds of steel I think.
And now I'm going to sit in my cleaner-then-it's-been-in-three-week-house and watch a movie. Hope you're having a good weekend!
