07 FebNo Rest for the Wicked

Was up until about 2am last night sorting through receipts, and various tax things doing a little research here & there on taxes. I think I can do our taxes again this year. Woo. Also: we get a ridiculous amount of paper from investments. Need to switch some of it to paperless, I think. Pretty sure I sorted through a full dead tree last night. On the upside — sorting & organizing, yay! And spreadsheets! Spreadsheets are awesome.

Lots to do this weekend. We have an open house tomorrow & have noticed that our house is starting to look “lived in” again. I.e., not in showroom condition. It’s hard after two years to keep the house in showroom condition all the time with two kids. So on today’s agenda: clean. Clean the kitchen. Clean the bathroom. Clean the living room. Clean the girls’ bedroom. Dust our bedroom. Clean downstairs. Clean the fish tanks. Put away laundry. Sweep. Mop. All that other stuff that goes along with all that. Also need to run to my parents’ house & water their plants & pick up my sewing machine. And go exercise. Collapse in a heap at end of day…

Tomorrow we go see what’s on the market before the open house, then… something. I’m not entirely sure what we’ll do during the open house. Hopefully get some food & after a reasonable digestion time go exercise some more…

But for now, to get the whole thing started, I need to clean the kitchen, then find something to eat. Maybe do both things simultaneouslyish. A day filled with cleaning adventure & latex gloves. Why do I never get to use latex gloves for anything fun?
