Friday, August 01, 2008, please don't come over. Okay?

Because the homestead is a mess like never before.

Manda went off to Alabama to hold and love the new baby nephew and left me all to my own.

Now I vaguely remember living alone. Leaving the dishes in the sink. Letting my debris pile up on the couch. Not making the bed. Clothes on the floor. The house is small so it doesn't take long for things to go really awry.

Yeah, it's like that. Maybe worse.

I don't know if it's just because Amanda is out of town and I don't feel like I need to keep up with my junk so it doesn't spill over into her world. Or if it's the end of the crazy July that was.

But somehow I've lost my way around home.

The drawers are still straightened, the cupboards pretty okay, garage is good, refrigerator not too scary, basement had some recent attention. But the general living space...a little frightening.

So that's what I'll be doing tomorrow. Maybe I'll listen to some tunes that I didn't lose on the IPhone!

just remember though... if you don't clean up the dishes in the sink before you go to bed... you'll get ANTS! ; )

I've been cleaning for the last 45 minutes and can see the floors again! I walked for an hour with the hubby this morning and feel great!

Have you seen pictures of the new baby yet? I would like to see the puppies but the baby needs to get some publicity. MUD
