A New First

I've hit an all time high today
(or low depending on your thoughts)
It's 2:45 in the afternoon and I'm still in my pj's
(hey now, at least they are my Victoria Secret flannels!)
and just poured myself a glass of wine.
Before you judge me, let me explain ...
I woke up at my usual 6:00 am this morning which was really 5:00 am due to our extra hour today. Yes, I know what your thinking. I try to sleep in, really I do. I try not to open my eyes, I think sleepy thoughts, turn off my brain and enjoy the fact that I have nothing to do ... but then it hits ~
JUST THINK OF ALL YOU COULD ACCOMPLISH!
The voices in my head start talking and before you know it, my two feet hit the floor and I'm off!
My husband has offered to pay me (I'm not sure of the form of payment and I'm not willing to ask) if I will just lay still and quiet until at least 8:30 on the weekends. See, I sorta like to wake him up as well, just in case he wants to enjoy the sunrise with me!
It all started with the master bathroom while brushing my teeth ~ the sink need to be cleaned, which lead to the thought I had earlier in the week ~ the jets in the tub needed to be cleaned. Next thing I knew, I had the entire bathroom in an upheaval.
While making coffee I looked around for my next victim ...
The master bedroom wood floors needed to be cleaned
(I found a great new cleaner from Restorations).
This lead to dusting, changing sheets, laundry started, and reorganizing the walk in closet
Once downstairs for my first cup of coffee, I realized that ....
Halloween decorations needed to be put away
which lead to
dusting, vacuuming, moping, cleaning the hardwood floors in the dinning, and formal living rooms
which lead to
cleaning the silver pieces in those rooms
which lead to
cleaning the kitchen
which lead to
cleaning out the refrigerator
which lead to realizing that we had one glass of chard left in the bottle from our last party.
I couldn't possibly let it go to waste in today's economy!
Well, after all the cleaning in our mater bedroom its only fitting to wash the dog since he does visit us in that room.
After that, I'm bringing out the Thanksgiving decorations.
We are suppose to be going to the neighbors this evening to meet their friends that are visiting from England. I hope I'm still awake at 6:30pm!
I should probably hit the shower sometime around 5:00pm!

How fun! I actually bought a good cab at the store to open very soon.

Please take pics of your Thanksgiving decor. I would love to get some fresh ideas.

I'm setting you up with my husband. He cannot stay in bed past 6:30am latest. I do not understand this! :)
