Spring Cleaning in Marksville

We had quite the busy week starting Easter Sunday. We had a big family dinner with Samantha, Lilly, and David. We went to bed early because Monday we were on the run first I took our van down to get inspected. I kept saying all month I would take it down and guess who was in the day after it expired getting it inspected. Yes you guessed it me. Once home we took Dennis to  his Physical Therapy appointment, then Dennise to her Dentist appointment, and then to get her finger measured. Tuesday was my appointment which went well. The Dr. is keeping me on the dosage I am taking right now because I am doing well. I have an appointment to go back in 3 months, which is around the same time the kids have their physicals for school.

Wednesday I ended up starting my job with last minute notice, but everything worked out just fine. Thursday Dennis had physical therapy again, then we stopped at Staples to spend our reward bucks. I walked out only paying .26 for my order. We stopped to spend my husband's gift card that he got from his job to buy different gift cards, one for Microsoft points, and one for Lowe's to bring me closer to getting our new refrigerator.

Next stop was Walmart to pick up the cell phone for my job, and some games that Dennis bought with money he made off of ebay selling his items. I found some really great deals. 1.00 and 2.00 T-Shirts for Deanna and Dorothy. All they need are shorts for summer and they will be ready. We then did our grocery shopping and boy did we do a great job at saving money and staying within our budget. With living on workman's comp we have to stretch every dollar.

Today I went and did my job which took me all of 5-10 minutes. We also stopped at Staples because Dennis was looking for something but of course they didn't have what he wanted, and I was bummed because this Staples didn't have the Martha Stewart Collection.

Have you seen the Martha Stewart Collection at Staples? It is awesome, if you haven't and get the chance, check it out. I will be stopping by our local Staples to pick some of the items I want up, since the other day the cash register spit out a 25% off my total of order from the Martha Stewart collection. In case you couldn't tell. I love a good bargain, and anything that makes life a little bit easier so I can spend more time with my loved ones is a win, win situation for me.

Dennise cleared out the back bathroom pantry and put the bathroom stuff in the pantry, which saved me a lot of work, then I worked on the totes, while Deanna swept the porch. It looks great. We have to get rid of the portable crib out there, and I have to go through their kitchen toys, other then that I think it is done.

My next project is painting the two Doll house double sided  book cases and setting one up in the living room, and the other one upstairs for the girls to play with. I was able to find some really nice red bins for the one that will be in our living room. I am still on the search for bins for the girls rooms, but soon enough I will find what I am looking for.

I think I might tackle the Hair accessory drawers. We have two of those plastic 6 drawer units stacked to house all of their barrettes, pony tails, ribbons, and headbands. With having 4 girls, a granddaughter and tons of other visiting girls, so we go through a lot of hair styling.

Well the time has come to do snuggles and stories with the kids. Tomorrow comes early. Luckily it is just getting coupons and then home to see what I can do next in the house. I guess you can say that Spring Cleaning has officially begun in Marksville.
