I Dreamed My Whole House Was Clean..........

And, then, I woke up. I've had some nasty dreams. But, this one had to be nastiest dream of all......
You know how it is....you come back from vacation, you're exhausted after that 12 hour drive with your favorite people. Even when you pull in the driveway, the odyssey doesn't end. Well, it ends for some of your favorite people....they manage to pass out on the couch, feign stomach cramps or somehow get a quick onset of gout. And, there you are.....there's suitcases and coolers and shoe bags and dirty laundry to unpack. Pots and pans and towels and beach blankets and umbrellas and beach chairs and boogie boards to put away. And, every damn thing you left undone at home before you left is still....undone. I know some people leave their houses in tip-top shape. That's just not a Judi thing. I don't care...I'm leaving on vacation. I'm very Scarlett-like. I worry about things....later.

So, later has arrived. This is not exactly how I planned on spending my bandiversary celebration.......

An extra 500 points for anyone who wants to come on over to get me unpacked, cleaned-up, organized and ready for my firecracker life.....

Hi Judi,
Long time no see (comment). I am heading to Pittsburgh to help. Maybe Pittsburgh is where my next life is waiting for me.
BTW, you look beautiful. Just beautiful.

Judi,

If I show up, trust me, cleaning is the last thing that would happen!! LOL!! I do know EXACTLY how you feel! I had the same thing when we came back.

Judi,
I would help you in a minute and do live close but you know how it is...my two adult sons living at home and two dogs keep me busy enough trying to keep my place in order. Three weeks before the younger one goes back to college and two months before the oldest moves out. I need a countdown ticker like you have for your weight. ;)

I have a magnet on my fridge that says:
A CLEAN HOUSE IS A SIGN OF A WASTED LIFE
Truer words have never been spoken!
That stuff isn't going anywhere. Take your time.
As a matter of fact, why unpack? You're just going to have to pack again next year!
