My mom is coming for a visit this weekend. And y’all know what that means.
WHERE ARE THOSE FOREST CREATURES WHEN I NEED THEM???
(I started writing this this morning and then a friend came by for a visit, so I took time to bend her ear as far back as Canada. We now resume the post. Don’t complain about your free entertainment.)
Anyway, I have made a list of the stuff I wish to accomplish before she gets here. Keep in mind this list does not include mundane chores like scrubbing bathrooms or cleaning out the fridge.
- Paint small chest of drawers in silver.
- Reorganize the Christmas decorations.
- Clean out the bathroom cabinets.
- Finish hanging my artwork, so-called.
- Put away “excess” wine glasses. Notice the quotation marks.
- Get car registered.
- Hide all my Legos.
She’s actually very cool about my housekeeping, so-called. Which is nice, because if she wants to clean or fix something, she just does it while cooking. Did I mention cooking? Yes…yes, I did. And you know what’s great about it? The fact that I can gorge on her fabulous cooking and not care because she is coming waaaaaay before Lent. I’m so lucky I have sweat pants and loose shirts.
That’s how I measure happiness 😀
