I got to sleep in today until 9am. Yes, that’s sleeping in. I actually got to enjoy two cups of coffee before my coffee maker beeped and shut off on me. It was going to be a good day!
As I was catching up with a friend on the phone, I noticed the ants
starting to come in underneath the back door. All of a sudden, the
caulking under the door frame got on my nerves. While I was on the
phone, I gathered up caulking supplies (I LOVE my cordless phone!) and
got to work. It didn’t take me long to complete the job and with my
veins loaded with caffeine and a whole day ahead of me, I couldn’t stop
at the door. I continued on to the kitchen counters and the windows.
Still motivated, I moved on to the half bath. Now, understand that my
house has needed to be re-caulked for a very long time. I’ve had all
the supplies for over a year but just never got around to doing it. The
room that needed caulking the most was the master bathroom. By this
time, it was around 6:30 and I was just barely finished with scraping
the old caulking and bleaching out the mold. So I broke for dinner.
I love my kids playing with the neighborhood kids. They keep them
busy and my girls don’t fight. I can get a lot done when they are
occupied all day.
So once I got the kids to bed, I caught a quick shower and the
unfinished job in the bathroom was calling my name. I got re-motivated
but this time, I did my favorite kind of multitasking. I put on a pore
cleansing face mask and finished caulking the whole bathroom in my
pajamas. By 11:30pm, my job was finished! I must say that I’m a much
better caulker than my husband. I stepped back and enjoyed my
handiwork. I don’t know what got into me today but boy does it feel
good to get a big project out of the way. My iPhone calls me
“Supermom”. I was definitely Supermom today! Next task: CLOSETS!
