I am Woman Hear me ROAR

Ok, here is a list of things I got done today (today, being Thursday -- that's right, you found me out -- I post-date stuff).  I had giant plans for the day, it started out with grocery shopping.  But, I came home from that to find a nice puddle in the front of the dishwasher.  I herded the groceries where they were supposed to go, got P interested in some toys and went to find out what was wrong.  I un-did some stuff.... I un-did a few more things, I googled.  I tried to fix it, thought it was good -- but it wasn't.  I did some more stuff... I googled some more and then I REALLY fixed it and WOW -- I FIXED my own dishwasher.  No leaks, not even now!  I know, miraculous (btw, I tightened the screws that hold the door in... in case someone with a leaky dishwasher is googling this)

Of course, I still had a giant list of things to do....

So, I cut up the strawberries I got for a sweet deal at the grocery store (Savemart: Buy 1 get 2 free this week) and I got those ready to can, and I canned them (like, boiling water canned them -- not some pansy freezer jam).

In between dishwasher steps and some canning steps I turned my compost.  Don't worry, I washed my hands good after.

Then, I got lunch ready for a friend.  It was modestly delicious.

Then, I made bread.  I'm talking ground the wheat, mixed it in my mixer (I accidentally typed dishwasher there, I think that'd be a fairly wet dough if I tried that).

So, let's recap.  Mrs. Fix it, turned compost, canned 10 jars of jam, fed the hungry, baked bread.  Oh, and add into that 2 loads of laundry.

Some days you just need a cheerleader. 

My husband just isn't a cheerleader.  Gosh, I love him but I'd like a cartwheel for all that I do some days.  I barely get a finger circle.

Anyway, I am woman hear me ROAR and once my bread is done I'm totally gonna do some yoga and have a 3 minute nap on the couch before it's time to make dinner. {phewsh}


  1. Troy is also a TERRIBLE cheerleader.


    You go Hill. RAH RAH RAH!

  2. Go Hilary! I would die if I spent that amount of time in the kitchen.

    And, FYI, I spent $88.92 this week to get my fridge fixed. It needed a new fan, so I don't think I could have done that myself. Go you on the dishwasher, I'm duly impressed! :)

  3. Wow!!!! I would never even try to fix my dishwasher. I would surely make it worse. Go you!!! That's an AMAZING list of stuff to get done. And with a toddler around! Ridiculous.

  4. A-mazing! Seriously, way to go! Doesn't fixing something make you feel all warm and fuzzy? I fixed the garbage disposal once and was on cloud 9 for days.
    But WHAT is wrong with freezer jam?! :)

  5. Lunch was delicious. And you should have mentioned that all of that was done before kids came home from school. (With the exception of the completed bread.) I'm going to attempt that recipe today, short of grinding my own wheat.

    You are a rock star! I'm working on being more like you when I grow up.

  6. And found time to blog. I don't know how you do it all. Is there some trick to how you blog so often? I can never seem to find the time to put down everything I think and want to write about.
