Life Update

Nothing exciting going on here. I haven't gone on a whirlwind trip to DC, nor am I anticipating a new family member. I am simply in survival mode for the next two weeks. Middle school track ended; pizza/awards party was tonight. The high school season is nearing a close; districts tomorrow with hopes of state next weekend.

I have been thinking lately that we have been in the new house for less than a year, but I have no idea how I would go on without some of the things I never knew I needed. How did I survive 30 plus years without an ice maker in my fridge? I actually get excited every morning for my refreshing pre-breakfast glass of ice water. Was I ever truly warm before my jetted tub? I don't think so, I only thought I knew how relaxing a bath was. Every time I pull into my driveway I feel like the luckiest person on earth. I had no idea how amazing an automatic garage door and attached garage were.

My only current issue is keeping the place clean. I am a VERY poor housekeeper. Cleaning overwhelms and stresses me. What products do I use? Where do I start? How often do I do these things? Why do my plants keep dieing? Life has many mysteries, but I am happy to be warm and dry with plenty of ice water.

House cleaning is highly overrated. Seriously, in this country, people seem to be obsessed with over-sterilizing everything in their home, and take pride in spending hours to do so. It's sick. You enjoy your slightly dusty domicile... life is too short.

I agree with Schimmy. A clean house is overrated.

I seem to have a film of cat fur over everything I own. No matter how many times I vaccuum and dust. I think perhaps the cats are trying to convert me into one of them.
