Hello! How are you? I'm fine thank you.
I was just feeling pretty pleased with myself because after starting off the day with blogging in bed(never a good thing for me...it could be hours later when I realize I have a child;) I realized I needed to get my bum in gear and CLEAN my house! I was reading Katy's blog and thought hhmmm...people have house cleaning schedules?..What a novel idea! And while I am still reluctant to make a schedule (it is just not a schedule I want to have!) I decided to mark today as cleaning day on my non-existent calendar.
So...so far I have done 4 sinkfuls of dishes..which I loathe entirely...especially washing silverware, which I usually leave for Josh...but since he was mowing the hundred miles of lawn he is in charge of today I decided to buck up and do them.(and no we do not have a dishwasher *gasp* I know!) I did bond a bit with the knives...they are so sleek and clean-up so well. The forks and spoons will need to prove themselves a bit more if they are going to win me over.
Oh and before that I successfully scheduled 2 year-old immunizations and well-baby check-up...for tomorrow!! Hooray...no having to call 3 months in advance like I had to in Poky.
Then I washed Carter's bedsheets AND mattress pad mind you...and have now moved on to getting my linens laundered as well. Laundry is something I enjoy which might be one of the reasons I do manage to get our beds stripped and cleaned every week(the other reason is I can imagine heaven knows what creeping and crawling all over our beds and sheets and just can't stand the thought of bed bugs)...laundry is one thing...and it just might be the only thing I am particular about
Then I proceeded to make us a delicious lunch of chicken sandwiches which Carter happily gobbled down half a sandwich and then asked for more! For my soul delighteth in the asking from Carter to eat some more! He rarely eats all of anything and looses interest in meal time very quickly...so it really makes me happy to know he has a full belly. We all know full bellies feel gooooooood! Josh was quite pleased to come in drenched in sweat and find he had some yummy lunch all prepared for him as well...oh just look at me being a wife AND a mother AND a housekeeper all in one day....I am just beaming with pride (what...most of you do this daily? huh? oh dear)
Okay...now I need to clean toilets and sinks...and if I get really ambitious I think I might organize Carter's room...which I have no idea why I would do that because Carter can't stand a clean floor or organized shelves...he prefers bare shelves and covered floors that he can trip over and stub his toes on things. Got me. On second thought...skip Carter's room entirely and focus some attention on my room.
So yes I know this post was very exciting...but I just wanted to post about our day of nothing to noteworthy so that when I am 50 and wonder what a day was like when I was half that age...I can look back on today and remember. Like I mentioned to Katy on her blog today...life is good. It may be messy and an unorganized...but for me...good. We are all content, happy, and healthy. Knock on wood and say a quick prayer of thanksandaskthatitstaythiswaybecauseIamreallygrateful
