  • Robby and I both woke up before our alarms went off this morning. I had intended to work in the house first this morning before I moved on to the camper, but the rain looked like it was coming quickly so I did a few things and started on the camper.
  • Usually, when we come in from a trip the kids help unload everything. Since it was late last night, I just asked them to get two loads. So this morning I started with my 3 laundry baskets to fill up. As I filled them up, I also straightened things.
  • I had set my timer for 30 minutes and already had my baskets full and was heading back into the house before my timer went off. So then I did those dishes and laundry. By this time, I had 2 loads of clothes to fold. I again set a timer (I needed some motivation), and I had almost finished within 20 minutes. 
  • Now let's talk about laundry-my poor washer has been washing things all day long. This is normal, and when you think that we were gone for 7 days and only did laundry once-that means that I am behind by 6. Today's laundry included 2 loads of blankets, a load of towels, a load of sheets, a load of jackets, a comforter, and there is a bin full of clothes that I am going to go ahead and wash now instead of tonight.
  • I went back to the camper next to take some more loads of things out. By this time, the kids were starting to stir-well, actually Graham was up and in the shower this morning at 8:30. Robby had already started on cleaning the camper so I joined him. He had done all of the fridge and freezer food while I was working inside.
  • The camper was clean and just now needs to be restocked which I will work on tomorrow once all of the laundry is done. By now it was about 12:30 so I took everyone but Reagan to Defy. Since itw as spring break there were a ton of people there. I read and decided to just stay until the kids were tired-well, we were only able to stay until they called our color. It was over an hour and a half so I think that was plenty of time for everyone.
  • This afternoon I really didn't do anything. I did read a little bit and ended up watching some tv with Campbell for a bit. I think that we are all still on Eastern time since everyone was asking about supper around 4.
  • After the storm had passed, I heated up some chicken and let everyone do what they wanted with it-hard tacos, soft tacos, nachos, and tostados. After eating and cleaning up the kitchen, I have grabbed my book, a few magazines, a blanket and my water and I don't plan on leaving my spot on the couch for a good while!
