Housewife Challenge – Day 3 & 4

Day 3

Wednesday, day 3, I found things much harder. I felt incredibly lazy and gave in to my computer and played games. Around noon-thirty (yes, that’s how I say it) I got off my butt and managed two hours of yard work. I weeded the area for my new planter beds, set down weed mat, filled with soil, and leveled it all out. About thirty minutes after finishing the clouds rolled in and it started raining. Rain is my nemesis and I can never get much done when it rains. (I live in California so this isn’t normally a problem.) I managed to straighten up the house a little bit but completely didn’t clean the kitchen. Made ultimate grilled cheeses for dinner. Overall failed my evening chores but am so proud of the yard work I got done.

Day 4

Terrible winds and driving rain killed most of my productive energy. I braved the storm and went grocery shopping. The key to grocery shopping is to have a list. I got everything on my list and only one thing not on it. At least I got my chore-of-the-day done and then had food for dinner. A small break in the storm had me taking my daily walk where I proudly got to be the neighbor busybody. A tree had fallen in the road two blocks over and I called it in. I then picked branches of flowers for a bouquet which stunk to high heavens – resulting in my airing out my room. Later I had M guilt me over my project-of-the-day and whipped out some curtains for my yellow room (which I’m no longer sure about). Overall a successful day.


Rain really does kill my creativity. Always shop from a list. Tasks don’t necessarily have to be done in order, they just need to get done.
