I'm so excited!!!

My sister and her kidlets arrive tomorrow! And my parents the day after.

My "to do" list is a mile long.

Finish cleaning the house. (Thanks, sweetheart!)
Get caught up on laundry
Air out the house
Go to the grocery store
Make my Thanksgiving menu
Still open for modifications when the family arrives
Go to Target
Wall screws, black duct tape, light bulb cover
Stool cover, door thingie
Clean the Closet
Clean Walls (I love the Magic Eraser)
Dust! Ugh--Florida has so much.
Mail Packages
Wrap Presents
Clean the office/spare room
Hang magazine rack
Sweep, Vacuum, Mop
Call Mom and Dad
Go to the Farmer's Market
Call Myakka River State Park
Clean the car and van
Weed / Straighten the yard
Straighten the Lanai
Clean out the kitchen cupboards
Clean the fridge
Sort the Kids' Backpacks/Papers
Kids--organize toys
Kids--organize books
Kids--toys in garage

If it all doesn't get done, I know my family will understand. But I want to have things ready and in order.


I'm so tickled that we're having Thanksgiving together. My brother won't be here, but other than him this will be the first time we're all together since the Thanksgiving right before we left for Ukraine, four years ago.
