Ding Dong, Ding Dong

Can I shout it from the rooftops?


And while I love skiing, and I love the patrol and all the activities associated with it, I'm looking forward to having my weekends back* to do things around the house instead of having to fit them into week nights when I've already worked a full day and also have to cook dinner. (Is it any wonder I don't exercise like I should?)

I already have a list of things I want to get done next weekend and the following...mostly yard work and cleaning/straightening type things that have been overlooked for the past few months.

If the weather is nice next weekend, I really want to pull the weeds that survived the winter and came back strong with the warmer weather we've had recently. I'm also hoping to cut back some of the plants that should have been dealt with in February. Given the size of our beds just these two things could take all weekend.

If the weather isn't so nice I'll be doing things like straightening our 2nd guest bedroom (mostly used for things like sewing projects, wrapping presents, and storing suitcases and hasn't been touched since before Christmas), giving the inside of my car a good cleaning, and going through our linen closet to toss any expired products or meds (I have open top tubs that organize different things like cold meds, sunblock and aloe, bandages, etc. and those are in good shape, but are starting to overflow with duplicates and such.)

Since it is now spring, I guess you could call it an urge to do some spring cleaning. Please make me feel better and tell me what things you are ready to tackle now that winter is (mostly) over.

*At least until we start going down to the in-law's beach house for a weekend every month or so.


  1. I've blogged ad nauseum about all the many and varied plants we share our house with, so wrangling those into presentable shape should come as no surprise to you. Given the size of our yard, that'll be about all I do for the rest of my life. If you need me, I'll be the one covered in mulch and weeds.

  2. Mulch is a dirty word to me. I hate it, hate it, hate it. Smelly, itchy, prickly, heavy - the negatives are boundless. And then it looks like crap for longer than it looks good. DH mentioned it yesterday as we were driving home and I had to shudder.

    Did you really want to get me started on this? I think not!
