Please don’t judge, I’m in my first house, been there less than a year and getting the hang of what I am supposed to do and work a LOT. This morning I noticed our front yard really needed some help- the bushes needed trimmed, lots of weeds, and there was this huge thistle tree. When I say thistle tree, I mean a five foot tree that I thought was an actual tree- upon closer look, it was a giant thistle, huge stalk, 5 feet tall, and even with gloves, it kept sticking me. So after a super busy day at work, I got it all done (except don’t have a huge shovel I need to get the root out but 99% done). I also cleaned our entryway (it needed it!). FH is working nights and just need a pat on the back. So fellow bees, what did you get done today?

Good job!!! We’re in our first house too. It is a ton of work. We just had sod laid and it is so hard to keep it alive and get it to grow properly. My Fiance is in Toronto for the week, so it’s been all my responsibility! It sucks. Water, water, water!
I have also been working on laundry, and trying to take care of our 5 month old puppy in 100F heat. I cleaned the kitchen and emptied the dishwasher (possibly my least favorite task).
Now, if I had only gone to the gym, I would be really proud of myseld 😛

- Wedding: January 2011 - Vintage Villas
Yay! I love getting stuff done! I cleaned out my jewelry nook (on a little table in the bedroom, it was looking RIDICULOUS) and I can finally actually get to all of my jewelry without digging through a million things. It looks about a million times better, too!
I also cooked a pretty ridiculous dinner (homemade chimichangas and rice, with some refried black beans! Yummmm) and I have plans to do some more bedroom organizing before I go to sleep!
OH! And I ordered FI’s wedding band today, which I am SO excited about!

Good topic, gg!! way to tackle that thistle!!
This week is my first week at my full-time internship/big-kind job and we’re new homeowners also so I’m kind of struggling too!
I got one load of laundry done, played with my dogs and planted some tomato plants that really needed out of the plastic containers. 🙂

I went to Michaels and returned an extra apothecary jar, and then I came home and made lasagna, french bread, and salad for dinner. I am taking a bit of a break.

Oh my gosh didn’t get anything done. I work nights, so worked last night, came home, and got sucked into the internet until 10:30 this morning. Fell asleep, slept past when I was supposed to be at work, so I just decided to take a vacation day lol. So far I’ve taken a shower… gold star for that?
Good job everyone else! Which I was being half as productive as everyone else! I have six tomato planters that are begging to be put to use, but I just keep refreshing this site…

I put together several spreadsheets, cut out a new bodice for the upcoming renaissance faires, bought fabric for some new skirts and shirts, weeded the yard, my husband mowed the lawn, and then I washed the dog – now we’re settled into the evening watching Mad Men – season 3. I’m settling into my third boubon and having a wonderful evening with the husband and the newly clean dog.

Great job Bees! I got nothing accomplished today. Lost my wedding notebook!!! So all the songs we wrote down to download are missing. My son barely napped and I spent most of the day cleaning up after him but the house is already trashed again. I did do someone’s hair today and made $40. But seeing as though she is also a hairstylist and I need my hair colored too, I will probably be giving it right back to her. Busy busy pointless day.
