My Life for the Last Week (2/5/06)

Survey says... Yes - I hate my computer and everything that has to do with computers. I had it wireless for a couple of weeks and then all of the sudden on Tuesday it decided - Nope, I don't want to be wireless. So I spent all of last week talking to my friends Christian, Kieren and Ryan in the Phillipines trying to get it back on the wireless track. Each time the guy would get it going wireless and then as soon as I hung up the phone it would stop. So by Friday Dave told me to forget about wireless and just put the stupid thing in our bedroom and be done with it. So on Sunday we did just that.

My best friend in the whole world (for now will be referred to as BFitWW) was telling me today that she was reading a blog where the woman said something about having to finish up her post because she had mountains of laundry to do - or something like that. Anyway, BFitWW told me how awesome she thought it was that this lady was so honest with how bad of a housekeeper she is. So I'm going to share with you how bad of a housekeeper I am:) Only for the sake of impressing BFitWW...

Since I spent all of last week talking to my pals in the Phillipines, by yesterday afternoon our house was in shambles. Let me try to describe it:
Family Room - oh, wait is that what it is? I couldn't see beyond the toys to know where the couch or the tv was. We had fake food all over, blankets, doll clothes, dolls, blocks, cradles, dog toys, and small bits of paper from Nora who recently received a tiny scissors as a gift and has taken to cutting all paper into tiny pieces and leaving the tiny pieces on the floor for a nice ticker tape parade affect. That was just the front half of the family room. The back half - the area we like to refer to as "the part of the room that is supposed to be a "play room" but ends up just collecting the toys in between the times they're being played with in the adult section of the room" - was filled with boxes and paper from fish tank supplies, blankets, and yes, of course, more ticker tape paraphenalia.

Kitchen - crumbs, powdered sugar, doll clothes, bibs, burb rags, bags, magnets, and some dust bunnies. All on the floor. Lets not talk about the countertops.

Dining Room - or the room that is the junk catcher - doll clothes, two packages of toilet paper, a package of bar soap, and yes, of course, more ticker tape paraphenalia.

Front Room (or in MI, the living room) - all the random dishes and wrappers that the dog decided to lick or chew on end up in this room which ends up being a lovely greeting for visitors who enter through the front door. By Sunday afternoon there were two plates, and several wrappers on the floor.

And do I need to describe the upstairs/bedrooms. Didn't think so...

So all this to tell you that I'm really not a horrible housekeeper, but the problem is that sometimes I get so focused on doing one thing, that everything else suffers. Last week it was fixing the computer issue. So today I play catch up - I've already done 3 loads of laundry (2 darks, one white), I have 20 dress shirts to iron while I watch General Hospital (I know, bad, bad, bad), I have to finish grocery shopping when Dave gets home, and then I'm off to Bible Study tonight. I picked up most of the floors last night while Dave, Nora and Ryann were at a SuperBowl party (Georgia is coming down with a cold and there were 19 other small children there == Georgia not coming close to that situation), so it kind of looks better. Need to vaccuum and dust and clean the bathrooms, make dinner, take out the garbage, feed Georgia, etc. etc. And what the heck am I doing on the computer? Withdrawl, I suppose:)
