Productive Weekend

While I did not manage to get very much work done this weekend I did manage to get a good bit of cleaning done. In the living room anyway but that’s a start. I got a lot of things that should have been thrown away months ago thrown away, some dusting and some vacuuming. All and all I’m happy. There are some pieces of furniture marked to be thrown out by the road and I am working on figuring out just how to get those out the door. I know that I need to find somewhere to put the things that are on them until I can get them out of the door. I had a slight disagreement with the whimpy soon to be ex over men and women’s work.

He got smart with me and told me vacuuming was women’s work. I informed him it should be right up his alley then. I preceded to tell him that moving heavy furniture, taking out the trash and cutting the grass which I do the majority of the time are traditionally considered men’s work so he would be more than a bit lacking in the man department. Yes, I know I’m a bitch but I do enjoy it so.

I managed to get some work done on a spreadsheet to post the titles and url’s of all the articles I have for promotion. I have a lot of articles so I’ll be doing more than one but the fact that I got anything done is something. I managed a couple of short articles and some random stuff to kill time that also pays so it wasn’t a total loss for the weekend. I am not thrilled that I still have a ton to do but that’s life and I’ll deal with it. There is still an old bed to put out by the road that is going to take too people but the promise of getting rained on prevented it from happening. I am working as fast as I can to get everything done and I am making progress.

The  progress is slow as I get rid of all the things I don’t want or need and end this marriage but it is going well enough that I am fully satisfied.

Saturday

OK I managed two loads of laundry, mopped the kitchen and vacuumed some of my living room; the part not taken over by toys. Theresa did get to watch a few cartoons and pretended to nap today. We managed to make a little progress on the potty training front. We’ll running out of cloth tomorrow though, she has six pair and she’s been going through them really fast today. I’ll be washing them tomorrow afternoon as soon as she runs out, Monday she’ll only use one or two, then Tuesday she’ll be in them all morning.

I managed to find time to sit at the end table and do a little therapy with her today. We did a few words on her chalk board, some dough and a couple pages out of her workbooks this morning. At the moment I’m printing out a page or two for tomorrow. Monday I’ll be going over flash cards and requests since we only have an hour or two and she’ll work all day between preschool and therapy. We’re doing more shapes coloring and the letter A tomorrow. I haven’t decided what else.

She has speech, OT and ABA therapies. I’m having a bit of trouble lately fitting in what she has to do in therapy with what I’d rather she know at times. We’re going to go over things that she does and doesn’t know tomorrow and she’ll get to color again. Following directions is the most important thing. I plan to take a few minutes on each page so she doesn’t get frustrated.

Well, that about sums up today and the plans for tomorrow.
