But today we swept and dusted and threw away at least three trash bags full and polished and re-organized and wiped and sprayed, and it is now a thing of beauty. The things we use most often are easy to access, and every paint can is labeled. And everyone helped, mostly cheerfully, and it only took a couple of hours. Ce qu'un exploit!
To reward everyone for their good effort, the boys went to see Hotel Transylvania and the girls went to see Pitch Perfect (loved!!!) and then we met up at Macaroni Grill, for which my Aunt V had send us a $100 gift card.
I ate almost nothing today in prep and brought half my entree home, but I'm still overfull and mad at myself. Salad + heroin bread + lots of Chardonnay + tastes of several appetizers (my fave: roasted beet and goat cheese crostini, YUM) + pasta = way too much food for small-meal Lady C. I am a dope.
But it was lots of fun, I will say that.
I need to do a couple more things to get ready for my church lesson tomorrow (namely: trace and cut out some birds, don't ask), but then a hot bath and bed.
I did not exercise today. I never seem to on Chore Day — I'm so tired after cleaning the house. Does lugging the vacuum around count as exercise? It is a wicked heavy vacuum, trust me.
I love the feeling of going to sleep in a clean house.
