A New Bubuh

TAH DAH!!!! Here she is, the latest addition in my gaggle of nieces and nephews. I missed the delivery by an hour, because of my history test. My sister was induced this morning and five hours later the cutie was born- I thought I had plenty of time, but I would have skipped class had I known how fast she was going to come!!! We are all so excited to have another baby in the family- and this one was kind of a bonus because my sister thought she wasn't going to have any more kids ( she turns 41 in another month) But I am so happy that she is here and that everything went smoothly. A happy day!!! I get to be a doting auntie once again!

It took me SIX HOURS to clean my fridge yesterday, and I am very bitter. As if I didn't have better things to do. But it got to the point where I was just shoving things in there, and it couldn't be born no mo'. I have cleared Tuesdays of school and work to dedicate to organizing my cluttered house. Last Tuesday I did major laundry all day, and I can actually walk into my laundry room now. But this kind of work sure takes its toll. This is not my strength nor my joy in life, being organized. It does keep me sane, and I enjoy a clean house just as much as anybody, but it's amazing how frustrating it is to have to spend all of your one day off cleaning-it's so exhausting. And I thought that I would be able to get to both my fridge and freezer yesterday, but the one side took the entire day. I don't mean to complain, because I am lucky to have a house, a fridge, and a laundry room. But my house is too blasted big. I wish I would have chosen a smaller plan, but we got excited at the chance to build our dream house, that I didn't think of how long it would take me to clean it. Which I don't really know because I mainly just don't clean. I shove things into the closets. This is kind of a confession for me, because I really feel like I do pretty well mostly, but I have been lying to myself. Which I think I deep down knew inside, because I had a feeling that fridge would be difficult. At one point, after I had emptied everything out, I found myself scraping some kind of red goo that had oozed down and fossilized against the back wall of my fridge behind the drawers. In a moment of utter exhaustion, I closed the fridge with the scrubber and the 409 inside while they got all nice and chilled. I lay there prostrate at the foot of the beasty icebox until I realized I had to go on, or all the food would have spoiled. I'm so mad.

Gratitude for Wednesday....

1-I'm grateful that we have a sewer hook up, some places here in Lake Point have septic tanks- even though we did go to court over the hook up fees. (we did win, though)

2- I am grateful that we have someone coming out next week to give us an estimate for our landscaping. I cannot wait to get our lawn in....

3-I'm grateful to be home.

4-I'm grateful next week is spring break

5- Can't think of a fifth-Oh- I'm grateful for freedom. That's always a really really good one.
