Around The House

Do y'all know my college aged son has been home on Christmas break for five weeks?! That's a long time. :) 

He just went back Today and Tuesday just happens to be my favorite day of the week because it's the one day I try not to do any major chores, etc. 

Pretty much Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, I have a few chores I need to do. Laundry on two of those days, grocery shopping once a week, cleaning the house, more laundry, making the grocery list, etc. 

But as I've mentioned before, Tuesdays are golden. :)

But having said that, I still struggle with truly relaxing. I keep looking around the house thinking of things I "need" to do. I'm totally the type of person who just can't relax until all my work is done. I could never enjoy a movie or book knowing there is a sink full of dishes. Not going to happen. Work before play is my motto. Ha!

So on this particular Tuesday, I planned on catching up with my DVR and spending time with my Kindle and a cup of coffee.

Until...I filled my cup with water from the fridge and started thinking about how long it's been since I wiped down the glass shelves in there. But I resisted. It'll still need to be cleaned tomorrow. 

Then I walked over to the pantry to refill my tin with coffee pods and played around with the idea of cleaning it out and organizing it. Nope. It'll just get messed up again. Believe me...the inside doesn't look nearly as pretty as the outside.

I passed by the master bathroom and contemplated throwing a load of towels into the wash...

I "just said no" and walked back out into the bedroom where I DID make the bed. I simply can't go a day without making my bed. It makes me so happy when I walk by and see it all made up and pretty. :)

So, I fixed a cup of coffee and filled it with my favorite creamer (Peppermint Mocha) As you can see, we have SIX bottles of creamer in our fridge. I stocked up on the holiday ones before they disappear until next year. 

And I sat down with my coffee and now I'm enjoying a movie on the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries channel. Do y'all have that channel? Hallmark now has two channels, the regular "Hallmark Channel" and the "Hallmark Movies and Mysteries Channel." This one has lots of cozy mystery shows and movies. They've made several of my favorite books into movies and they're showing them on this channel. 

They've made the first two books in the "Hannah Swensen Mysteries" (by Joanne Fluke) into movies and they just made the first of the "Flower Shop Mysteries" (by Kate Collins) into a movie. My mom told me about the "Garage Sale Mysteries" on this channel too and now I have four of them set to record this Wednesday. 

I used to not have the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries channel on my current package, but it was only a $5/month add on and it came with several other channels too. Oh, and they gave me three free months to be sure I liked it. What a deal! 

I'm sure as soon as I watch this, I'll throw a load of towels in and clean the shelves in the fridge. Old habits are hard to break. ;)
