Half Off Everything!!

Happy Saturday, everyone!!

If you're interested in hearing about my interviews I had yesterday, I wrote a post about that on my other blog:  Traveling My Mind

Today is a great day.

It's the first Saturday in a very long time that I'm not worried about how much homework I have.  I'm not worried about what I need to get done.  I'm not worried about deadlines or due dates...or any of it.  I can relax...well, relax from homework anyway.

Today is the day for finally getting to some of the things that have been on my "to-do" list that were given a back burner during the weeks of CRAZY.

First, it's time for some spring cleaning.  Time to get rid of the piles of boxes and winter clothes and toys that I'm sick of stepping over and on.  My dear little Jelly owns her own toy store - that just happens to be located in the back half of my living room. Jelly is in for a little shock today - when half of her store is going on CLEARANCE and being shipped off to a better home....the Goodwill store.

Then there are the boxes of clothes....what toy store would be complete without a selection of apparel from all seasons? Yeah, she's a diva.  Yeah she has tons of clothes...but it's time to get with the season - so it's half off with the clothes today.  Some are staying, some are going out to the storage building, some are going to Goodwill.

The original plans for my the back half of my living room - once hubby took over half of my office - was to transform it into a home gym...and a SMALL play area for Jelly.  Well, it became a LARGE play area for Jelly and something that could be depicted from a scene from Hoarders: Buried Alive.  There's no gym aspect involved - unless you count that the gym equipment makes a great clothes hanger or storage bench for even more junk.

It's adios to all of that crap today.

I'm not sure that I want the home gym, anymore - being that I have a membership to a gym and using it (somewhat).  I want Jelly to have a little play area.  It would be nice to just have a little extra room...some open space.  Is there anything wrong with just having an "open room"?

After cleaning, it's time to get my meal planning done for the week and head off for my weekly trip to the grocery store.  Lots of fresh fruits, veggies, whole grains, lean meats, fish and dairy making a comeback this week.  Now that the weather is getting nicer, it's time to start focusing on some lighter meals....maybe even brushing the dust off of the grill!!

After getting home from what is sure to be an adventure (I'm taking the kids...always much more interesting when they're with me) it will FINALLY be time to get some working-out done.  My original plan was to go to the gym today.  I wanted to take my brother and sister with me - who both decided to come and help me out this weekend.  That was until I found out that there's a $20 guest fee.  Yeah - I'm an unpaid intern...pretty sure I can get creative without using the gym this weekend.

We've decided that a trip to the park to play some soccer, another 2 mile run, and some weight work at home will be just as good.  They're going to be standing by helping me out and pushing me...which they've decided is worth a small fee IF I win the Biggest Loser competition.  That's pure family love and support right there!!

So, it's still a pretty busy day - but fun busy. 

That's what I've got going on - but what about you guys?  How are you?  How you doin'?  What's the weather like where you are right now?  Are things getting a little warmer, or are you still battling some pretty chilly temps?  What's on your to-do list for today??

SHARE PEOPLE!!  I LOVE hearing about what's going on with you.  ;)

K - time to get my day started...

Till next time. ;)

  1. Cleaning out the extra stuff is always a good feeling for me. I just finished my menu planning and shopping list and am headed to the store. Have a great day with your brother and sister!
