This will be a bit of a random post.
I slept in today. Priss stayed home since she is still under the weather. Hubby had an appointment at 8:30 in Cherry Creek. So he didn’t have to rush out. Bubba was home. It was just delightful.
Then I got up and was in a frenzy. I had so much cleaning to do. Because the new cleaning person was coming. I have never had a cleaning person. This is a whole new way of life for me. I can’t keep up with the amount of dust any longer. And I am so tired of giving up fun time with my children to spend a morning cleaning. It’s not worth it to me. I dare say our house it’s the cleanest it has ever been since it was built. The smell of clorox in our house is just awesome. When we moved in the previous owner did not take all her stuff. To make matters worse we were on a deadline on closing day to get the contractor in so he could get a list of items done in time for the floor guys. It was a domino effect. So we never really got to move into a house that didn’t have anything in it. And once we got 80% of the stuff out that she left behind we were then moving in with all our stuff. It’s only been recently that we’ve even seen our storage room! I never saw it bare until last Saturday. It turns out it’s a pretty good storage space. Now if I can just get the shelving I need in two rooms. My organization will be amazing. Finally! Some people dream of new cars, toys, trips. I dream of shelves. Storage in my laundry room.
While the house was being cleaned, we went to the American Girl Doll store. We were supposed to go last weekend. But, of course Priss was sick. Today we went with money that Nana had given for new outfits and such. Priss went through the store and just didn’t get excited. Bubba did! He wanted Priss to get the $300.00 horse! She kept coming back to the AGD of 2015. Grace 2015 I have always felt it was silly to have more than one AGD. But, my mother doesn’t think the same. The look of surprise on Prisses face when she got to hold her new Grace doll, Priceless. I’m thankful for a mother that absolutely loves these things. I hope I can be like that as a Mimi. I’ll never be a Nanny, Granny, or Grandmother. I will be a cute little Mimi of course. As the mom, I am not into over buying of toys like American Girl Doll. Maybe as a Mimi I will change my ways. Because as a grandparent that is what you are supposed to do? Right? Spoil grandchildren!
After that we went to the Disney store for Bubba. He didn’t ask to go. I just decided it. The funniest part was walking into the mall and he asked what ‘is this place?” I told him the mall and he said he didn’t like it. After a purchase of a trinket. I do mean trinket of $12.00 he walked thru the mall holding his trinket and beloved puppy and announced “Mommy I think I do like this mall. It’s pretty great.” Considering a week ago he was sitting in gold bucket seats and watching from the shoots……..this is a big deal. We don’t shop that often! It’s kind of funny. Did y’all know they don’t sell movies at the Disney store? They have a few. But, not anything you need like:Star Wars, Beauty and the Beast, Cars, or 10,000 Leagues. I have my reasons for needing these. But, who knows where I will find them!!!!
We ran by Swoozies this afternoon and ran into our favorite friends, the Swiss Miss girls. They were getting birthday gifts for a few friends. Their sweet Grandmother was visiting and she was buying each of the girls the random gift that they insisted they need. In this case it was an initial pillow for each of them. It was so sweet. Grandparents just are good like that!
The weekend is here. I am in love with the cleanest house ever. I have a weekend with my children. It’s going to be in the 60s. It’s going to be fabulous. I feel so happy!
