Tackle it Tuesday #6

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

Today being Tackle it Tuesday & all I figured I'd better get something done! 

We did get tons done outside this weekend.  The yard looks better now than ever before!  We didn't get much done last year besides mowing.  So I/we trimmed back the lilac bushes (really they are trees at this point), weeded more of the garden spots, got all the stuff out of the garden to get it ready for tilling, trimmed most of the weeds back with the weed eater, I got a set of lawn furniture from my Mom & fixed it up so that it is ready for painting, dh cut back the pine trees (some of the branches were so low I nipped them with the push mower), and we put out a ton of garbage from the concession trailer and side porch.   I don't have any pics yet.  But I will definitely take a shot of the chairs once they are painted.

My plan for today (besides 4 hours of working) is to get the dishes done & to declutter another drawer.  Plus I need to do my home blessing (FlyLady thing) & zone missions. 

We finally got the large round table upstairs for the kids to work at while I am on the computer.  DH'd foot is feeling better, so we should be able to finish the move.  So the Princess has been upstairs with me coloring & cutting out paper.  That should help amuse her while I work, although I don't like her up here at all while I work, some of the sites I view are questionable at best...perk of the job???

I need to work on my shopping list as well.  I don't want to forget anything important.  One of our local home improvement stores is having a window clearance, so we want to be able to pick up a few now & get them installed over the summer.  Plus I NEED a new vacuum!  The shop vac is great & all but I have a little over 2400 sq feet.  It would take me 4 hours to vacuum it all on my hands & knees (at least!)  So I don't care what as long as it works.  Probably whatever is cheapest at Wal-Mart, maybe I'll try Big Lot's first.
