Productive Weekend

I'm glad this weekend is almost over. In the last couple of days we've purchased (thank you tax refund) some needed items for the house. I was trying to clean the carpet with the Woolite Rug Stick when I got to thinking that perhaps the problem was the vacuum. All the while Richie was in the back yard seeding again because the first round didn't take. He came in and informed me that I hadn't bought enough seed. Off to Wal-Mart we went. We bought a new vacuum and spotbot carpet cleaner. We got lots of other things, but those are the most important--to me. :-)
So I immediately put the vacuum together and started that bad boy up to see how well it worked. The patch of carpet that I vacuumed first was the area that I'd used the Rug Stick on. Keep in mind I'd already vacuumed this portion of carpet twice with the old vacuum. Tell me, do you think the old vacuum was picking anything up? This is what I found when I emptied it after re-vacuuming the carpet.

While we were gone my order from Emergency Essentials was delivered by FedEx. Remind me never to ship anything FedEx. This is how the package looked upon arrival.

Here is what I found inside. It was like Christmas!

Something else I got were towel racks for the bathrooms. The racks that were here were the standard contractor pieces of crap. They had to be replaced. So, here is the solution.

The guest bathroom.

And my favorite, the master bathroom.

Our order for Tom's bath soap arrived from drugstore.com as well. Because of the addition of these soaps to the guest bathroom I was forced to reorganize under the sink. I ended up doubling the number of storage boxes and made room for new stuff. I reorganized the linen closet to make room for some new kitchen towels and clothes. We got 2 more curtain rods hung and finally covered the other 2 windows in the great room.
Last night a friend called and wanted to go out. We'd not spent time together since Richie and I began house hunting last summer. We went to our favorite bar and had a blast. We were out WAY past our bedtime and are paying for it dearly.

I'm ready for a break. This mini vacation will not come too soon!

Wow! You were really productive. I don't think that I've ever accomplished that much in a weekend. Take a break for the rest of the week. You've earned it!

I'm exhausted just reading about your busy weekend! I agree with Merritt...time for a break!

See ladies, I've not been real motivated lately. I haven't been doing a whole lot during the week but the weekends are full of work.
