Really Random Thursday

I have been so busy trying to clean house for when TGS and OSLW come for a 10-day visit next week, that everything else is falling into ruin. Now the kitchen isn't staying clean because I'm too busy trying to shovel out the guest room! My laundry isn't getting done because I'm trying to get my vegetable and flower gardens weeded...You see how it goes?

I feel like my life is dedicated to randomness lately. I have to really fight my tendency to "squirrel" (see explanation in  this post!). Start to clean guest room. Oh, here's a dish I need to put in the kitchen. Trot down the hall. Oh look! I didn't put away the cereal from this morning. Clean, clean, clean. Oh yes, I was cleaning the guest room. Start to amble down the hall. Oh dear, I left my sweater hanging on the railing of the living room, I should put it away. Stroll to MBR. Oh darn! I forgot I was going to put in some laundry. Drag laundry to garage. I can't believe I forgot to clean the cat litter. Carrying bag of "cat poopies" at arms length to garbage can. Look at all those palm fronds that have fallen with all the wind lately. I'll put them in the yard waste can. Oh shoot! I'm supposed to be cleaning the guest room.

Does this even sound slightly familiar?

But I digress...

My random presentation for this week are some awfully adorable girls. These are my two granddaughter, Curly and Sweety. I was having a Skype chat with them and captured these pictures.

*Sigh* I sure wish they lived closer. Thank heavens, stars and moon that we have Skype!

  1. Aww, your granddaughters are so adorable! I had to chuckle at your description of your cleaning day, it sounds like my housecleaning day too!

  2. I'm a terrible housekeeper. It sometimes takes a day or two to wash dishes and the laundry is ALWAYS in some state of unfinished. Usually, if I do decide to clean something it is at the exclusion of everything else which means cleaning one room often messes up another! Good on you for following through with all of your tasks. :)

    Your grand babies are dolls! What fun to skype em up!

  3. I get distracted ALL the time! and your granddaughters are adorable.


I love comments. They make me smile and feel warm and fuzzy. To show you my appreciation, I try to answer everyone's comment. :)
