Nine things I did on 09-09-09

In honor of the fact that I will never see this date again in my lifetime, I thought I would share with you nine things I did today. I'm sure you are jumping up and down with excitement in eager anticipation.

  1. Dusted my ceiling fans. I know I'm crazy like that. Is it wrong to admit to you that giant dust balls fell from my fan onto my bed?
  2. Five loads of laundry: For all of you out there with just one kid this may sound like a lot but for those of us with more than two kids this is just a normal "Oh crap I haven't done laundry all weekend" kind of event.
  3. Swept my kitchen floor: And here I thought my dog wasn't shedding all that much. If you would have seen what I swept up you would realize just how wrong I was.
  4. Had lunch with my good friend Jean: Egg salad and chips. I mean do I know how to entertain or do I know how to entertain.
  5. Had a doggy play date: Jean brought Olive over to play with Copper. He was very excited.
  6. Avoided the computer all day: Sorry about not commenting on your blog. I was starting to feel like I was in an episode of "Clean House" and needed to do a little work around this place.
  7. Vacuumed: After cleaning out my disgusting vacuum I vacuumed the entire upstairs. The dog is definitely shedding.
  8. Spent a combined total of 2 hours on the phone: I'm trying to sort out a medical bill and you would think that I was trying to sort out a lunar landing.
  9. Walked to the bus stop in the rain: Seems I've misplaced all of my umbrellas. Does anyone know where I can find a cute one with turtles on it?

What did you do on 09/09/09???

WOW! I cleaned too and did vinyl sayings. I think I will copy you and do this too. I also sent you an email! As for the umbrella, how about doing one yourself with vinyl? Not sure how it would work but it would look cute! LOL!

I like this idea for nine things on 09-09-09. You should have put a linky to it for everyone to join in! Congrats on getting so much housework done. I wish I had some motivation to do some housework ha!

Can't help you with the umbrella but it would be super cute if you can find one@

I tend to lose my umbrellas too! Sounds like you very productive today in the cleaning department. I think I better get inspired too. I'm scared to see the size dust balls that will fall off my fan!

What did I do? Got up early and went down to the radio station for my weekly show. Had a caller I congratulated on his 09/09/09 birthday (which means he was born 9/9/99).

BTW, I have 4 fans in the family room and master bedroom just waiting to be cleaned. Do I hear a volunteer? My normal method is to just turn them up to hurricane speed and let the dust fly - then I can just clean like normal (some are 20 feet up, ladder territory to clean any other way).

I lose umbrellas too, but I know where they are. L always takes my umbrellas and then I have to search her office to find them. Fortunately, living in the semi-desert, I don't need an umbrella often.
