As I was doing errands today, it jumped again (I wasn't on the freeway and was only driving 60!!) and it made me realise how much I am like my car. I meander along, doing my chores and suddenly, I need to jump to turbo speed for a bit.
Today, we had visitors over to eat dinner and help celebrate birthdays. This meant I got the guys to help me clean the house. I try to have visitors at least once a month. For my peace of mind, if nothing else. The debris on the counters, table, the shoes littering the floor, and the gun paraphernalia will finally get relegated to where it might belong. (I did put a box outside the Bear's door to his room and I have been filing it these last couple of days.) Bear did say after everyone left this evening that the house seemed empty and strange. (this was in reference to the tidiness of the living room and dining room) Am sure it will be back to normal in a day or two. And I never did dust. Thankfully, It is a country accent.
Turbo Mom-Speed was jumping all over today. But, I managed to get everything done. I started out by being an hour or more behind, so was pleased to have 45 min for myself before 5 pm. Bear's cake turned out amazing (his words), the lemon flavored green beans were yummy, and I do love Little Ceaser's bread sticks. I was a bit grumpy when dinner ended up being 10 min late and I was asked to calm down. I know 10 minutes isn't much at all, unless you are serving parts of a meal that have been done for 10 min already! Thank goodness for microwaves. :o) I mentioned before I can be a bit agenda oriented. (this does not work in every part of my life, just a few of them!)
Moses got into an altercation with Kila, which added more tension (and blood) to the evening. Moses, it appears, has a loose toenail now. It was decided, as he has 6 on each foot, there was at least one to spare. I hope it doesn't get infected. (He is being a brat at the moment, so am betting he is fine.)
Am glad I am done with all my busy-ness. I have several books crying out to be read and I just can't say no.
