Whew...it's Sunday night. Oh, wait, it all starts again tomorrow??? Feels like there are no breaks here and it is neverending.
I love doing the Nutcracker and I love that my kids are enjoying their roles in the production... but boy will I be glad when it's over. Hopefully, with no rehearsals we will get some stuff done around this house. This dirty, messy house that I am in charge of. I am beyond embarassed about my house these days. I don't want anyone coming in it right now. The floors need a good cleaning and the playroom needs a good 'cleansing'. I could also use about a day to go through all the bags of clothes I have sitting in the girls room right now. Mostly clothes that no longer fit Franny girl. But, I have no one to pass it on to...perhaps I should organize it in lots and sell it on ebay or something. I have A LOT of clothes which we have been fortunate to receive...would totally love to pass on. I love the circle of clothes amongst my circle of Moms but right now it looks as though the girl clothes stops with Franny.
Weekends have stopped being a 'catch up' time right now. We had soccer yesterday morning, I worked in the afternoon while DJ had rehearsal and then I had rehearsal myself. Afterwards, I worked on making some 'baby' cookies and pink cake pops for a baby shower this evening. Today we had religion, rehearsal for Kyra, work for me, Doug and kids went to see his mother and I had an evening with the ladies celebrating a new life about to join us. Good times.
And so, I have come to the conclusion that perhaps not cleaning is a good thing. Yes, we are all a little sick but not nearly as sick as what's out there right now. I think it's b/c we are all used to GERMS circulating around the house...LOL... oh, and hubby had the audacity to try and tell me how and when to get laundry done around here...b/c you know, he had the 3 older ones with Max not in preschool and not watching any other babies and so I should do it just like he did while I was away i Ireland. Oh, Ireland how do I miss thee let me count the ways...
OK- goal this week...finish laundry and sort out the clothes in Kyra's room (and the spillage into my hallway). Let's see if I can get that done!!
Have a great night:)
Good Hubby of the day: he took the kids to see his mother (she is out of the rehabilitation center and back at home)
