So, my husband has been gone all week at training. Which means a few things. I get almost nothing done, the house becomes a complete disaster (more so than usual), and the kids
are neglected get to watch movies and play while I take 3 hours to set up a Christmas tablescape because I’m slower than molasses! 😉 The baby did actually get a bath today, which is more than I can say for myself so far!
And because the hubs is gone and I’m single parenting this week, I think I’ve had enough Mt. Dew to caffeinate a small village for a month . . .
And my kids have been told “just a sec” about a million times . . .
And there’s glitter and pine needles all over the floor and counter (which finally got cleaned up yesterday) . . .
Oh, and I’m pretty sure the cat has partaken (is that a word) in some twine . . .
And the dog has been whining at the back door to be let out for the last hour (she gets the “just a sec” treatment, too) . . .
And there are dishes piled in the sink . . .
But at least I got a pretty Christmas table out of it, right?!
On a side note … just when I was done taking pictures of the finished table, this happened! YUCK!! I saw this little (er, big) guy on the chair and totally freaked out! I hate bugs! My first instinct was to smash it with something and toss it down the toilet. But then, being a blogger, I thought I needed to share it with you all! And THEN after I got through being close enough to it to take a decent picture of it, I LET IT LIVE! Yep, that’s right! I put a cup over it, closed the bottom (top) with my paper-towel-covered-hand, and actually threw it outside so it could live out the rest of its days. Crazy, I know! It makes my skin crawl just thinking about the fact that it’s still out there. Ready to attack at any moment! 😉 But I did take it from it’s natural habitat in the woods when I cut the lovely greens for my Christmas decor, so maybe it will be too freaked out at its new surroundings and die! A girl can hope, right?!
And now I’m off to spend some time with the kiddos before they go down for naps so I can get some more stuff done. Like, maybe take a shower! 😉 (I don’t know how people do this on a regular basis! It is far too much for me to handle all by myself!)
