I spent my morning/early afternoon cleaning up our disaster area of a house. Well, the main floor area. It was getting really bad…we did the kitchen/dinning room, the living room and the bathroom. How do these main areas get messy again so darn easily?? I feel like I clean up and then I turn around and it’s instantly messy again! So frustrating! I mean would it kill you to put a dish/plate/bowl/cup in the dishwasher now and again?? It just seems to be cluttered and messy looking over night in our house. Often it’s not really “dirty” it’s just that there’s too much “stuff”! So everywhere you look there seems to be a pile of something…sometimes i just want to get a shovel and a big dumpster and go to town!! Easier said than done. I need to go through things, but there never seems to be any time. And so it just sits there, in bigger and bigger piles, until my hubby loses patience and starts throwing things out.
After our cleaning, my oldest and I ran to the grocery store. We ran into my good friend Claudia, with her daughter (one of my younger daughter’s best friends). We had a brief visit in the store. It’s been too long, I really miss her. She’s probably my best friend in town here and I hardly ever see her. I really need to make a point of getting together with her!! We got supper and things for school at the store, put gas in the van, then, when we got home, my mom and dad were here! We went into the backyard. My mom and I spent a very long time trying to comb and brush out Aggy’s (our dog) matts. Her fur is super fine and right now it’s matted so so badly! I feel really bad for her. We tried really hard to get through them and to cut off the ones that we could, but now she just looks kind of fuzzy and she’s still super matted. Poor thing. I really need to take her to areal groomers. They’ll likely give me shit for allowing it to get as bad as it has. She’s probably roasting in this hot spring weather that we had all weekend!! While mom and I were trying to rescue Aggy’s fur, my dad mowed the back lawn while the girls raked and cleaned up dog shit. Fun fun! It was really really bad and needed to be done! Not a pleasant job, but one that has to get done when you have two dogs. We don’t do it often enough and then it gets bad, like it was. We’re especially bad at it over the winter. It’s probably less smelly if it’s frozen…but we tend to leave it and then have a doozy of a clean up job to do in the spring! Good thing they go out on leashes and don’t have the run of the whole yard! That way there’s just one area “the shit zone” that gets bad…not the entire yard. After attempting to fix Aggy, mom and I went inside and got supper ready. We had potatoes/carrots/onions drizzled in olive oil and wrapped in foil, bbq’d. As well, we had chicken breast, also bbq’d. I also made us a salad. It was a fairly healthy and tasty meal!! By the time we ate and had a cup of coffee, it was already 8:30. My parents left around 9:00. We probably won’t be seeing them for a couple weeks ☹️ My oldest gave my son a quick bath and then I got him into bed. And now I think I hear him, so I’m going to run. Night all! 💤😴
