The House is CLEAN!

It's amazing! I had a huge burst of energy today and decided to clean the entire house! Woo Hoo! Although I was slightly concerned with the sudden lack of exhaustion that is generally my number one pregnancy symptom in the first trimester, I am suddenly nauseated by absolutely everything in this kitchen so I guess it's all good. But Cheez-Its, my friends, are disgusting. (OK, technically, Trader Joe's Cheddar Cheese Squares, but the same idea.) I bought them specifically for between meal munching and they taste like sour milk to me. Wahhh. I am so sad. I will try again in a day or two. Hopefully it's just a temporary aversion. But there's the baby news so far. My first appointment is Monday. Did I mention that? I am very excited. Can't wait. Cross your fingers that my little 5wk 3day bean will be visible (and healthy!) then.

Other amazing news is that even after sprucing up the entire house and putting away the mountain of toys that resulted from that spruce up, we still did school! The usual (for this week) Phonics, Grammar, and Math. Nothing too exciting, but I'm just thrilled that we actually did school 4 out of 5 days this week - if I'm remembering correctly - even though I pretty much wanted to pass the time on the couch watching DOOL and eating bon bons. I'll probably do that tonight though. ;)

And finally, our "No Solicitors" sign was breached again tonight. But this time it was a Girl Scout bearing a cookie order form so I was more than happy to oblige. In fact, the sweet girl didn't want to ring our bell because of the sign but her mother talked her into it. She's one of the few neighbors we actually know and we ordered from her last year too, so she was correct in assuming that I wouldn't mind. I was a good girl and only ordered six boxes - about a third of what I really wanted to, lol. DH usually ends up buying some too. And we still never have enough. Suddenly I'm thinking that I should've ordered more than two boxes of thin mints though. Those would have tasted so good fresh out of the freezer this summer. (As if they would last that long!) Mmmmm. I guess I'd better go make some mint tea because that's the closest thing I have to thin mints around here. ;)

Mmmmmm.... Samoas, frozen....

Nesting already? I wanted to let you know that I'd be more than willing to help out (watch C&C or whatever) if you need it.

Good luck on Monday!

I love your pregnant hormones!! I don't miss them but I love seeing them in others.

We have a sign on our door that reads

"Kindly respect the wishes of this family by not disturbing us. We do not answer our door unless we know you or are expecting you. US Mail and UPS are welcome, as are friends. Others should make an appointment."

On Christmas day (Christmas!!) The door bell rang. I looked through the peep hole and saw two people. I usually just don't open the door and wait till they notice the sign and leave. but they looked like maybe they were visiting someone and just at the wrong house. Sounds reasonable for Christmas day right? So I open the door and it was Jehovah Witnesses. He started his spiel and I pointed to the sign. He said "We're not selling anything". I again pointed to the sign ans said "It is Christmas Day and we are spending time with our family, I don't know you, you don't have an appointment, have a nice day". I mean really I don't want to be rude, but there's a sign, there's Christmas decorations galore in my yard. I obviously celebrate events in my life. Respect my beliefs and I"ll happily respect yours. I do want to put a "Girl Scouts excluded" on my sign though!!! YUM!

Life is so much better when the house is clean, right? I feel so unorganized and out of control when the house is messy. I can't think and function in messy spaces. Hooray for clean!

Ahhhhh, clean houses. It's easier to think with a clean house, isn't it?

And LOL about the Girl Scout cookie seller being an exception to the rule. ROFL

HOLY COW to Meesh's post. Wow, on CHRISTMAS????? I like the sign and need to copy it. Seriously, but I think that some folks would still bang on the door thinking themselves the exception. Sigh.

Post about the baby update!

I like Meesh's sign too, but I would need to post it in English and Spanish!
