Okay. Sidney was born yesterday just after 11:00am. Debe was so brave, as was Kris, and while they are immensely glad to have this experience behind them, it was very brutal emotionally. Let them not stray far from your thoughts.
However, Debe called me jerkface, which I equate with the green light to resume cleaning, and I'm dragging all your asses with me.
My house is teetering between "Totally fine, please come in," and "OMG we cannot be friends."
In an effort to tip the scales, tomorrow will find me:
-Thanking god that protein shakes are one of the three foods that won't make my mouth erupt like Mt. Krakatoa. (The other two being cucumbers and mashed potatoes.)
-Make chore lists.
-Re-hang son-of-a-bitchin' world map that falls down laughing off the wall everyday even though the US map hangs obediently.
-Clean kitchen FLOOR on my hands and knees.
-Clean out refrigerator, it needs consolidating. Also, the freezer, because I can never find the kids' waffles so I whine to Todd who grumbles and finds 17 packs of them in five seconds, leaving me with nary a witty retort. (Wondering about caddies for freezers...)
-Take a lint roller to the furniture and carpet, since Quinn my Vacuum Man is on a sleepover and there's a piece of thread driving me nuts.
-Put clothes away.
-Chip away at the kids' room before it's condemned.
-I'm one load away from being dish-and-laundry-free, save for folding.
-Vacuum my car.
-Make compilations for a friend.
-Give my eyes a massage by de-cluttering the kitchen. Wouldn't you know someone opted to display the fruit buffet-style rather than in the fruit bowl!
Call it a day.
I challenge you guys to pick five things off this list and two exceedingly clever and significant tasks of your choosing.Then tell us all about them.
Thanks for hanging in with me while my cleaning drive wanes. We're coming back, medium-throttle at this point.
