I am sometimes convinced that holidays like Christmas were designed to get people to clean their abodes! In order to put things up, you have to remove things, often find dirt, and clean. The same thing happens when you end the holiday and put things back in order. Is there anything nicer than having your house back after a holiday mess? It is especially nice to be done with the pine needles, as nice as a live tree is. It is almost three pm and we are finally pretty much done.
Mike and I have been busy since early morning. I started before he got up and then he and I located the storage boxes to put things away. It was nice having someone go under the house and get them! Midstream, we went to the gym to release some excess energy and then hit the grocery store so Mike could take some leftover pork roast and morph it into tonights dinner. So, a few bell peppers, carrots, and other items later, we went home and had lunch. That was followed by renewed clean up and everything is pretty much all away.
I am going to steal a few moments for myself before going to pick up la Princesse (aka Bambina, Samantha, Sam, etc.) at the babysitter’s and bring her here where Daddy will pick her up after a business meeting. I shall then head south to Kenilworth to tutor a high school student in French.
All in a day’s work!
