I've been really bad at fostering friendships the past few years, so if you're one of the few people whose blog I actually post on, I'm not sure whether that makes you lucky or not. (ha ha)
My days have slowed down dramatically. I should have my house spotless by now, but I don't. Somewhere between raising seven children and caring for my mother, I lost track of how to keep a clutter-free home. Truthfully, part of me doesn't really care, and since I hoard only the "normal" stuff, I'm not too worried about whether or not it will eventually be clutter-free or not. We can still sit on furniture, the floors are visible, I can usually find what I'm looking for, and we still take the trash to the curb on a regular weekly basis, unless we forget. Yes, we do have counter tops and they are visible... Today I made Avocado Gazpacho (recipe here), mowed a good section of lawn, and did the dishes. I don't feel terribly accomplished, but there have been a few accomplishments none the less. Maybe I can do something else wonderful before My Darling arrives home.
I guess it's been a pretty productive weekend over all. I even squeezed in a little grocery shopping Saturday morning and every day I try to send a Facebook note or two to Hannah. I don't want her to forget about me or anything. :0)
