At least my house is clean.

Not what I wore while cleaning.

Four hours of non-stop house cleaning and my abode is ready for a parental pop-in.

I vacuumed, mopped, straightened, dusted, arranged flowers, did dishes. I should have taken some pictures. Something tells me once I get home from work in a few hours that the husband will have somehow undone some of my hard work.

The parents will be here in about 7 hours.

Things I have to do before they get here:

Take kitties to the vet to get cathader-ized. (Pee-ers begone!)
Go to grocery store.
Go to home improvement store.
Clean bathroom – again (I can only assume).
Drink copious amounts of wine.

I’m in a surprisingly good mood today. Probably because I woke up to a home worthy of a spread in some home magazine. Certainly not Domino. Maybe Better Homes & Gardens if they had a sloppy 20-somethings issue.

Taking a quick break…

Category house stuffs, the cats

…from losing my mind to update my blog. Martini’s been on my case. :)

This week has been retarded. And I’m not apologizing for using that word. It has been nothing short of RETARDED. It’s already Thursday. I have no effing clue where the week went. This is problematic since I have 9,358 things to get done before noon tomorrow and no time to do it. Mostly work stuff. House is in shambles. Laundry needs to be done. Yard needs tending. Cat(s) have decided to ruin our lives by peeing in places in the basement that don’t include their litter box. Carpets have been torn out.

I feel lightheaded and craptastic today. I would love to go home but our internet at home has been less than spectacular.

My parents will be in town in about 28 hours. I’m looking forward to this, but feel as though I will not get my house in the shape it needs to be in for a parental visit. Especially since our entire basement reeks of cat urine.

God help me.

A year ago right now…

…myself, the husband and the wedding party were sweating buckets under the Hennepin Avenue Bridge taking our wedding photos. It was 90 degrees.

Meanwhile, back in the present…

We’re both sitting in our cubes. Working.

At any rate – we had a nice weekend in the Wiscompton (read Wisconsin), going to the Dells and having a nice dinner or two with my folks.

Tonight, I’m making dinner when I get home, ready for when the hubs gets home from work. Then we’ll watch the Twins game. :)

World’s Shortest Fairy Tale…

…courtesy of my Aunt Laurie. :)

Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl, “Will you marry me?”

The girl said, “NO!”

And the girl lived happily ever after and went shopping, dancing, antiquing, drank martinis, always had a clean house, never had to cook, did whatever the hell she wanted, never argued, traveled often, had many lovers, didn’t save money, and had all the hot water to herself. She went to the theater, never watched sports, never wore friggin’ lacy lingerie that went up her butt, had high self-esteem, never cried or yelled, felt and looked fabulous in sweat pants and was pleasant all the time.

The End

Should be in bed.

It’s way past my bedtime. However, redoing my blog design AGAIN took priority. A storm is blowing through right now so I’m sure the husband will be waking up soon, and therefore yelling at me to come to bed.

Until then, I thought I’d give a short recap of the weekend.

(And, I just got yelled at to come to bed. Nearly a year married together and I’m already a fortune teller.)

I’ll make this quick.

I’m sitting on the couch, surrounded by Kleenexes – all used. Still sick. Walked 9 miles on Saturday, got a blister on the bottom of one of my toes, then got a pedicure from L. Last night went to the Twins game (we lost – but won tonight!)

Today, slept mostly. I was up for almost 22 hours yesterday so needless to say I was a tired girl. Especially with being sick.

Alright – I need to close the windows in our living room and go to bed before the husband sounds the alarm again. :)

Later Y’alls.
