I may NOT be around for a while......

UPDATED BELOW **

What do you do when your house is a disaster and your MOTHER is coming today?? And she is staying for 3 WEEKS?????

You barely sleep, you have anxiety attacks all night long, you plead with God for a snow storm so she can't come. But do you clean the house??? Oh no....that would take away from blogging time!!!

My house has been in renovation hell since September. I have not really done any cleaning since then either......since, what's the point?? UGH!! The worst is the laundry. Laundry is piled everywhere........clean in baskets upon baskets, dirty on the floor of the laundry room, floor of my room, floor of daughter's room.......it is everywhere. I have actually contemplated just throwing all the clothes away and just starting fresh.

I have always had laundry issues...but it is worse than ever right now. I have actually been known to go buy new socks and underwear for the kids instead of trying to find clean stuff in my laundry baskets. I hate folding clothes and trying to put things away, I have just never been great at the laundry thing. I really should have made some New Year's Resolutions about my laundry issues, but it seems too late now......especially with MOTHER breathing down my neck.

So if you don't see me here for a while, know it is because I am fighting my way out from under a pile stinking pile of dirty laundry!

**apparently my brother-in-law was delayed today, so they will not be coming out today....BELIEVE in the power of prayer!!!!!

What? Your mom won't clean it for you? (She should make you a cup of Earl Grey first and then clean it for you.) Heh.

I ****HATE**** laundry too! And I HAVE gone out and bought new clothes for myself and Ladybug when laundry is low. An outfit or two won't break the bank, and it buys you a little extra time. :)

Good luck, you'll feel better when it's done.

OTJ,

You see, just as I am the Queen to my peasantfolk, I was once peasantfolk to MY Queen....and trust me, I am not too big for a beheading!!!! *LOL*

Even my kids know, that Gram is the QueenMUM and to piss her off is not wise.

Have a nice visit with your mom (**snicker** lol) I have to laugh - my mom lives with us and well, I feel your pain.
