Yes, I know I haven't posted anything for a couple of days. I won't run through my list of excuses except to say, remember last week when I said I was sick? Well, I'm still sick. But I'll soldier on for the good of the site.
Today I looked around at the squalor that has overtaken my house while I've been feeling poorly, and it occurred to me that I must somehow address it. I believe that every drinking glass in our entire house is now dirty, so it's time for one of those top-heavy dishwasher loads that has nothing in it but a full rack of cups and glasses, one dessert plate and five peanut butter-coated knives. I just ran a load of laundry through for the THIRD time after days of neglect. It's finally made it to the dryer, so its ordeal is now over. Then there's a nice stack of overdue bills, but then that's par for the course.
This weekend I'm hosting a baby shower at my house, so I'll have to do a more thorough cleaning job between now and then. Even though the house should still be fairly clean, it's amazing what four oft-puking cats can do to bring down the level of sanitation.
Tonight I need to grocery shop to get the ingredients for the cheesecake, blueberry scones and Devonshire cream I'll be making for the shower. I was fortunate enough to be on some kind of high-level, "we love you and your money" mailing list for either our local grocery store or Starbucks which resulted in my receiving a good-sized sample packet of Starbucks coffee in the mail yesterday, just in time for the party. It'll be a midday shower, so we're concentrating on desserts, tea and coffee.
Obviously I'm rambling today, so I'll quit before I get off on another tangent. Tomorrow: Something more interesting, I promise!
