DITL (Day in the Life)

So today has picked up from yesterday. I did finish scrubbing the living room floor yesterday.
Did my bible study and then started on cleaning.

Today I am working in the kitchen. I really never got around to spring cleaning this year so that is my goal for now. To deep clean all my house.

So far I have moved the table and scrubbed the floor under it, washed out a bin that used to store large bags of flour. I want to use it as an extra bin for snack foods.

My oldest grandson has a weimaraner / german shepherd mix. She is HUGE. Almost 100 pounds. Our dog is a poodle/yorkie mix that weighs 5 pounds. They are great friends. Problem Nova (big dog) can reach the counter top, table, etc. And sometimes when they are left alone (they have food down so it isn't that she is hungry) she will get into various snacks that I get to clean up when I get home. So the bins will keep her out of things she shouldn't be getting into. We have custody of her right now and will until daughter is on her feet and finds some place to live that will accept her. Right now daughter is living with us. (Divorce in works). Her soon to be ex was making our grandson give up his dog. She is very well behaved and the most gentle thing. Just like my grandson. Grandson is 18 and 6'4" (well last time I measured him). I call him my gentle giant. We weren't gonna let him lose his dog (he is in college to become a vet) so we took her in. She sheds ALOT.

I also scrubbed the bin I keep laundry products in. Was dusty and a little detergent had spilled in it.

Our two youngest children are both married (all 4 of our children are) and live in apartments without washer/dryer hookups. So they come here to wash and dry clothes. Daughter comes one day during the week and usually on Sunday. Son or his wife usually come on Saturday. Son doesn't have children as of now and his employer takes care of uniforms so they have less laundry. Daughter has a 3 year old so lots of laundry lol.

Also today I have changed our sheets and washed our comforter. Washed up breakfast dishes. Talked to a friend on the phone. Talked to a friend's hubby who is a handy man and is working up a price to change out 2 windows for us.

Our home is over 40 years old and the windows (except kitchen which he changed last year) are that old and single pane. We are changing out the main room ones to help with cooling/heating costs.

I am handling our daughter's finances for her and she gets paid today, so I will be paying bills for her this afternoon.

This is her week with youngest son, (he's 14) so he will come here after school. He is a character and I love spending time with him (with all 5 of our grandchildren). He makes me laugh every day. The week he is with his dad I miss him.

Supper tonight will be us all going to a local chinese restaurant that we like. yummo

Alright off to put away morning dishes and decide on lunch.
