So, even though work is imploding around me...life goes on and I'm taking today off. We are hosting family gatherings for the next few days and also next weekend and I just thought I ought to make the effort to add "house" to "wife" for a little while and get the joint in order.
Unlike my lovable sister who likes to tear up a floor and refinish it 48 hours before welcoming family for a holiday, I'm surface cleaning only. To get started, I'm making a list and checking it twice (the Franklin-Covey working habits in me required ABC 123 lists) and then I'm going to plow through it all quickly.
...fast forward to 5PM
Somehow managed to get all my tasks done...work, play, and housework....at least good enough. House is clean and presentable. Kitchen is gleaming. Pool is swimmable. Patio is set. Now its time for me to kick back and enjoy family time tonight.
