I think one of the things I love about the holidays (or changing any season really) is the fact that I get to drag out all of my decorations and CLEAN. Really clean... like move the furniture clean. After an hour and a half of grocery shopping this morning at two different stores I came home and started in at 10:30. I just sat down 8 1/2 hours later. And I'm not really done yet.
But I do find it awesomely rewarding to look around at my abode and see actual wood without dust on it. See carpet without Jack and Bella's fur on it.
I do absolutely, unequivocally HATE one thing: toilets. Seriously?! I am convinced that if I lived alone I bet I wouldn't even have to clean the toilets. But these boys? Geesh! I get multi-tasking but just TRY to hit the water, will ya? UGH!
So with that nasty task completed (times 4 by the way), I am chilling out for awhile before the cooking extravaganza begins. I'm so excited - Bubba, my girlie girl and nugget are coming to spend the night! I love that the kids have been gone three years and they still want to come home for holidays (even though they live in my town). I cherish these moments even more now that Bubba is headed to boot camp. Every extra second I get with the kids is a huge reward!
Off to move laundry... then I'll chill. Maybe :).
Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
