Housework. I really hate it. You’d think by now, I ‘d know better than to let things pile up on me, yet every time I turn around, it seems I have done just that!
We like decorating for the holidays, which means making sure we have places TO decorate. Scaling back big time this year, because I just don’t have the energy, and Mom’s just… had enough, I guess. But the candles, Frosty and Santa are on the front porch, my winter curtain is up, and both Mom and I switched the daily dishes for the winter sets. And the Kidling and I started tackling her room today. 90% of it is clothing…. and better than half of THAT is stuff she can’t wear anymore. We have several bags to go to the donation box. AND a large bag of trash. Still need to clear up her books, jewelry, and doll stuff that she no longer plays with (but can’t bear to part with…. or maybe, *I* am just not ready to see go yet.) I will be doing mega loads of laundry tomorrow, and dusting, and sweeping and washing the floors tomorrow. I need to sort through some of the stuff in my room, as well, or Nick won’t have any room for his gear when he gets home.
We could use a bigger house, one with three bedrooms, two full baths and a half-bath, kitchen, pantry, dining room, family room, library, and three offices…and a finished basement for collections… and yeah, that would mean MORE cleaning… but I think, if I could just get organized and STAY organized, it wouldn’t seem so bad.
