back to normal

I should not be sitting here, but I am. I should be cleaning up the house, but I am not. Instead I am sitting here with a sleeping kitten on my lap. I guess if you have a full belly, a dry bottom and a warm blanket, you think it is nap time?
I was going to load all the Christmas pictures today, but that won't happen. Last week some time our computer took a crap, and now we are using one of our daughters computer and this computer does not have a slot for me insert my card. I guess I will have to wait until Rusty gets home.
Everyone had fun building gingerbread houses. Rusty even whispered in my ear, "this was a good idea!" I am just glad that everyone had a good time. I must say that some of the marines got very competitive. But I guess I should have expected that from the marines.
I am finally getting our house put back together. For whatever reason I just could not stand to see the Christmas stuff any longer, so it all came down yesterday. Now I am trying to get my house back to normal. However normal is a relative term.
My mom is upset with me. She bought me a Vera Wang night gown and robe. I have no idea who Vera Wang is, but I have been told that she is a designer. Anyway, I love the robe and night gown, but I am still wearing my old robe. I just don't want to ruin the new robe. Maybe once the kitten leaves I will wear it.
The girls are made at me. I happened to mention that my mom wanted to buy them a WII. I told her no. So Amber called my mom and said "Don't ask my mom if you can buy us a WII, we want one!" So I have a feeling that my children will be getting a WII.
Rusty had to work today. I told him that I would go with him, and help him do inventory, but Rusty very nicely told me no since I really do not know the gear. So instead I am going to do a few little things for him. I am making him hamburger helper for dinner. I don't know why, but he just loves hamburger helper. I am washing all of our bedding. Rusty just loves clean sheet night!
Well, I am going to guess that if I do not get back to cleaning, that it will not get done. I just wish those cleaning elves would show up!

I'm with Rusty, there's nothing better than being fresh out of the shower and climbing into fresh clean sheets! Hope you have a good Sunday!

I like hamburger helper too; especially the cheeseburger one; I know what you mean about getting the Christmas things down; I've done that as early as the day after Christmas one year; when its over, its over, know what I mean???

I think I would save the robe too until the kittie goes; what a nice gift from your mom!!!

I think a Wii would be fun; you hear so many people having them and the interaction they do with others and the exercise they get with it too

enjoy the week ahead

How nice that, when things don't seem to be going real well (computers crashing and people being mad), you think about doing nice things for your husband. I'll bet he'll be thrilled with his meal and the fresh, clean sheets.

Hope next week brings you all kinds of good things!

I took our Christmas stuff down the 27th, I put it up maybe a week or 2 before and take it down asap.
I am glad you are thinking of nice things to do for Rusty, I hope he knows how lucky he is to have you in his life.
I want a wii too, not going to happen any time soon though.
I would have saved the new robe too.
