Saturday is a special day

It's the day we get ready for Sunday.  Do you remember that primary song.  Boy, I sure do.  My Mom was THE primary leader at the time and she made us sing it over and over.  I think it was to pound in our head that we needed to clean the house and put our clothes away and get our chores done.  We kids were definitely not "saints" at this.  Ralph would attest that I am stil not good at it.
"Saturday is a special day,
It's the day we get ready for Sunday;
We clean the house and we shop at the store,
so we won't have to work until Monday;
We brush our clothes and we shine our shoes,
And we call it our"get-the-work-done" day;
Then we trim our nails and we shampoo our hair,
so we can be ready for Sunday!"

Anyway I find myself once again facing Saturday and wondering if I should sit on the couch all day and watch Basketball, Foodnetwork and the HGTV channel or get my butt moving so I don't keep having to look at the dust and piles waiting to be taken care of.

I am trying to find a happy medium.  I have been somewhat productive.  Bread dough in the fridge, proofing, laundry folded, St Patricks day decor taken down, Easter stuff ready to go out as soon as the dusting and vacuuming are done.  I still have bathrooms to do - ick - my least favorite next to laundry.  Hopefully I will have enough time this evening to play with some paper, ink and stamps.  I have a few primary things to work on...two of my teachers are moving.  We have quite a bit of turnover in our ward, but as long as they keep moving in as they move out I am ok.

Hope everyone is having a great Saturday -
Ta Ta for now
