busy day

Busy day today. Didn’t get up til late, and Ted made pancakes for breakfast, and then there was _all_ the housecleaning. Enough to make me very grumpy. We unloaded the Christmas tree and the boys took it down and I vacuumed and Shaun cleaned the kitchen about three times and Ted and I took turns cleaning off the kitchen counter which had been eaten up by Junk, and then he finished that, and I did 3453458907 loads of laundry and straightened up the *frelling* mess on the entertainment center and while we were cleaning we found 5 different pieces of rawhide bones, so I put several pieces up in the cupboard where we keep those sorts of things and hopefully Chanti will *finish* the pieces she’s got left before she gets more, and we threw away several bags of garbage and Ted and Shaun moved a bunch of stuff from the garage into the crawlspace and I *finally* sat down to write, got about 12 words written, and Mom and Dad arrived for dinner. Chanti got very excited and danced around on my toes while I tried to save what I’d written, and I got very grumpy, but things smoothed after a few more minutes and we had a very nice evening and a very nice dinner which involved pork roast and cherry pie. Yum!

Then I did more laundry and sat back down to write and got 1400 words written over the course of a couple hours, and so I am relatively satisfied.

    sounds like you guys got bit with the same cleaning/organizing/destuffifying bug that’s been nibbling at me lately……Then again, I like starting the year off with a clean slate/clean house….
    Sort of ritualistic, almost……

    We’ve been trying to get the place clean for what seems like weeks. Christmas and holidays kept just sort of piling up. But it’s MUCH better now, thank heavens. :) It is kinda ritualistic, though, isn’t it?
