The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

October 21st, 2009 at 03:05 pm

All of which describe my house! We are hosting a brunch after church on Sunday, in honor of my Grandbabys baptism! I am perfectly happy that my DD#1 asked me to host, we are kind of centrally located for the folks who would be likely to come. However.....it made me take a good look around the house, and OH BOY. I always comment that I do Fall cleaning as opposed to Spring cleaning, I have been out in the yard all Summer, not cleaning house. So this was a big wake up call, get things straightened up! So far today, I have opened three cans of paint, and if I have enough time, I might get to four. A little touch up here, a little spackle there...... And I have to figure out what to do about the cieling fan/light in the bathroom. I took part of it down a couple of weeks ago, because we had wasps coming out of it. Well, I think we got rid of the wasps, but just in case, I was trying to figure out a way to keep them from coming thru again, You get the idea. I have already warned DD#2 and #3 that they will be home on Saturday for an extra good, dust/sweep/mop/vac session, lots of groans, but too bad! There isn't time to do something with my sewing room (downstairs bedroom) so we will just close the door, and ignore the whole thing. I just washed the curtains from the living room, if I have time to do the dining room and kitchen good, but they look OK if I don't. Oh, and the wallpaper seams in the dining room peeled a little in the humidity this Summer. I need a wife! Someone to do all of the regular stuff, while I tackle the never ending honey-do list. Well, the dryer is calling, TTFN.

    We threw a baptism party last April. We were lucky enough to be able to use the parish hall and had a special service after mass. We had a wonderful party for about 50. We did smoked meats, salads and rolls from Costco and a cake from Costco along with a few appetizers like hummus and pita chips (son-in-law and family are Lebanese). Don't get too worried about the house, the baby will be the focus. Have a WONDERFUL time!

    I do fall cleaning as well. I feel that if I have to close up all the windows and stay inside in the colder weather, then my house should be as clean and as clutter free as possible Smile

    P.S. The party went great! The house looked fine. I haven't put those last 2 paint cans away yet, I'm still hoping to use them. The Holidays are coming up you know!
