It's amazing what the early bird can do!

I was restless and didn't sleep well. I got up at 5:30 am and decided to catch up on some housework. Here's what I got done before my workday started:
  • Washed my face.
  • Washed and dried two loads of laundry.
  • Striped the bed of the linens. Cleaned up an accident on the mattress.
  • Folded four loads of laundry while watching Chef Class and Nick Cannon's Wild and Out.
  • Cooked two meals for my family (chili and ziti).
  • Spilled last night's leftovers all over the kitchen floor when I opened the refrigerator door.
  • Showed my oldest what happens when someone does not properly put away food in the refrigerator.
  • Cleaned up the spill and mopped the floor. Put the soiled laundry in the sorting cart.
  • Cleaned the inside of the toilet.
  • Rearranged the storage containers on my kitchen counter and on top of the refrigerator.
  • Got annoyed with my youngest for dragging her feet and not trying to get ready for school.
  • Took pictures of my flowers and cat.
  • Read my emails.
  • Searched for an empty spray bottle to use for a DIY green all-purpose cleaning spray. Didn't find one.
  • Thought about all of the cleanup work that needs to be done in my place.
  • Wrote and sent a long text message on my cell phone.
  • Fed the cat. Washed out her water dish and replenished it.
  • Washed and dried off the cat's place mat.
  • Got a yogurt out to eat. Put the yogurt back in the frig because I changed my mind. I wanted to eat chili instead.
  • Snipped fresh cilantro from my herb garden to stir into my chili.
  • Enjoyed the flowers and bird songs while on the PC.
  • Looked for jumbo binder clips. Didn't find them.
  • Put away some office supplies. Restocked my pen and pencil containers.
  • Organized my gravity-feed can dispenser in my pantry.
  • Refilled the cereal container in the pantry.
Whew! That's a lot of work before starting my 9 to 5.

You did all that and still made it to the work by 9:00? Wow!

Actually, it was easy because I worked from home that day. I love being able to work from home. All I have to do is turn on my computer and I'm at work!

I need a nap after just reading it!
