Yesterday was a spectacularly productive day. I made 2 dozen muffins, 3 dozens cookies, lemon bars, & ham/cheese scones. Two loads of laundry. Folded and put away. And did all the dishes.
And then I collapsed. Just like the curtain rod I spent much of today trying to install. And that's pretty much all I accomplished. The problem with having a GUM day is that the energy required to sustain it generally runs in one day increments. And the following day little gets done.
Apparently the $36.83 curtain rod I purchased from Walmart is just not quality goods. Imagine that. I gave up about 5:00 this evening. I wanted to cry, I really did. But Lizzie had a play date and I just couldn't show my weakness in front of the children. So I settled for temporarily hanging the curtains from oddly positioned cup hooks I discovered hiding under my blinds. Don't they look pretty?
