I got up this morning & made breakfast for myself & then M, who was washing our cars. He washes the cars almost every weekend, and I don't think we've paid for a car wash since I've known him. We do invest in car washing supplies, but I have to imagine it's still much cheaper than taking the car to be washed.
I put on my back pack & went for a walk this morning. My destination? Yesterday I'd spotted a neighbor a few miles away who had a table with free books. Some of them looked like they may be a good read, or if nothing else, good for future donation or listing on eBay. I picked up those, and then spotted another local book lending library. This one appeared to have a few kids books, so I'll round up some books we're done with & take Nick to see if he finds any winners.
I also arranged to have someone come by to pick up the 15 Hot Pockets that my husband bought at Costco & no one in my family will eat. I'll begrudgingly eat 1 or 2, but there's no way I'm going to eat 15. Unclear how they made their way home with us, but I found someone on our local Buy Nothing who was thrilled to pick them up. I was also able to pass on one of our many ice packs, so double win!
M is working on installing shelving in our "closet of doom", and I'll be thrilled when that's finished up, so I can put everything back in the closet. Right now, all items are stored in four other closets, and very haphazardly, I might add.
Other things today...
- I'm doing laundry (always)
- Nick is playing tennis this afternoon. Tennis is a great socially distanced option right now
- I sliced up a pineapple & a mango, so the kids would use them for smoothies in the mornings. They were both about to go bad.
- I listed an item on eBay
- I helped Sam make a daily "checklist" for school. Here's hoping it helps him focus a bit more. Online learning is a real struggle for someone who already has challenges with attention.
