My plans for my cottage this week:

Today was a pretty productive day.  It is Labor Day and I did labor.  lol   Hubby also left for work a while ago to work a night shift and will get paid double time and a half, I believe.  So we work on Labor day!  Yes we do!

I got to check off many things on my to-do list today.  I rarely get to everything.  I usually run out of steam before I can, but here is what I have accomplished today:

Good breakfast for the hubs and I
Put away all clean clothing
Did two loads of darks and and load of lights and will probably get to a load of whites before the evening ends
I unloaded the dishwasher, reloaded it and hand washed a sink full of dishes
Picked up the house so that Rosie the Roomba can do her job (I just love her!)
Got husband to move a table for me.  Muscles!
Got husband to get his techy gadgets off the dining room table so we can actually eat there if we'd like -  lol
Husband broke down boxes that I had emptied (yes I am still unpacking from our move.  I don't think I will ever get done!) and he took the good ones we may sell or donate to the garage and put the others in the recycling - more muscles!
Had family meeting (school stuff, chores, calendar, etc.)
Bought a few groceries
Filled up my gas tank
Put a roast in the crockpot
Made my husband lunch
Packed his lunch to take to work
Daughter and I ate a good lunch
Later, daughter and I will have a good dinner - Yum!

Saturday plan:

May be in Atlanta!  Maybe not.

If not,
Prepare daily meals
Rearrange Laundry room (move shelf, move cat litter boxes)
Buy and install extra shelves in Master Bath closet, Craft room closet and Pantry (Hubby has already measured these)
Did I need a new curtain rod in the craft room?  If so, buy one of these too and see if Hubby can install it
Hubby needs to work in the Home Theater
Detailed Kitchen Duty (I'm a messy cook!)

Sunday plan:

If not in Atlanta, church
Lunch out?
Dinner in?
Clean up Kitchen
Either way, I'd like us to eat out together one meal today
Family Meeting

That's my plan for the week.  Some routine, some to-do's that if I didn't plan them, they wouldn't get done, etc.  I'm a list maker and I find I accomplish more if I have a list and can check my to-do's off. 

I may or may not post my plans for my cottage every week.  We'll see how this goes.  I want to get this cottage unpacked and neat and tidy so that we can have guests over.  Our parents haven't even seen our new home yet!  I know, but Hubby worked two months this summer of nights which were four nights with one night off, continuously and is about to start that again for at least six weeks.  This is unusual and has kept us from getting a lot of work done around here.  Just thought I ought to explain.  We're not really that lazy, ya'll.  lol

Thanks for stopping by!
