Here I am!

I promised I would get back online today. I have been a long time gone. My weekends have been full of home repair and cleaning and my week days full of work and rest. I have been in bed every night at 8PM and dragging myself up next day. I would try to get online at night and on weekends to at least read and comment but I couldn't muster the energy or sadly the enthusiasm. I think I was developing a little depression because of all that I had to do.

All of this activity was due to the impending weekend visit of my SIL mom and dad, from Serbia. Also because my theory of housekeeping is "My house is clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy. " That only works if it is truly healthy! I confess to not being a fastidious housekeeper and my part-time housekeeper (Mr BC) and I need motivation to keep up, and that involves inviting someone to visit. SIL is fastidious and DD1 is too, so I clean like the Queen is coming to visit whenever they come home. This time Mr BC and I decided to raise the ante and not just stuff things into closet and drawers but, really purge, clean and repair. The visit was last weekend and I have been feeling down, Since Monday, Mr BC left to visit his mom in Missouri for a couple of weeks, and I have been left with a clean house that has to stay that way but will since the removal of much clutter.

The weekend went well, I really like the In-laws and wish I could really talk to them, SIL has a tough job as translator and the weekend was noisy. This is usually why we only see them once during their visit, is stressful with everyone talking at once. I also feel that DD1 has a tough time trying to please everyone and fielding comments about potential grandchildren. Really, sweetheart we will be content until they come.

I spent yesterday getting a manicure and pedicure and running errands that should have been done on other Saturdays. Today I am taking Gwennie for a walk in Claremont and we will end up at the pooch park, after I go around the Blog o sphere to visit my friends.
