Lot's of Work, Little Stitching

I was flat out this weekend. On Friday, I started cleaning and by Sunday, I had
  • thoroughly cleaned the downstairs
  • hung the clock in the kitchen
  • purchased and set up a printer
  • printed 20 photos for the big picture frame (35 photos)
  • hung the bpf in the dining room
  • hung other pictures in the dining room, hallway, and guest room
  • had my cousin her family over to hang the chandelier in the dining room and the light fixture in the downstairs bath, and eat dinner (which I fixed)
I think we may be almost ready for the dude's friend to arrive from England. I just have to clean the upstairs, do the laundry, and buy a duvet at IKEA. Now that I write it, it doesn't seem like a lot, but I was going full tilt until I dropped into bed every night. Maybe you had to see the unbelievable mess two people who don't pick up after themselves can make...

I can't believe it's almost time to review my goals for the month...and I haven't even picked up the marquoir!

Wow! You did a lot. Sounds like you are well on your way to having the house ready AND decorated. Congratulations! Maybe give yourself a small break and stitch on the Marquoir a little.

I'm impressed! I think I need to invite someone to stay at my house - maybe that would give me the motivation to clean up!
