...of Rats and Mommas.... or something like that...!!!
Today was spent mostly in clean up mode....again....!!! The kids were sent to have baths, the house was vacuumed ( even under the couch cushions... you could have made a new dog with all the hair there was under there...!) the place spiffy and spruced up, for Company was coming!! :D I'd already put on my make up and done my hair first thing this morning as it's usually the last thing I do before people arrive and I inevitably put it off until the very last moment and you can bet I will hear the doorbell chime as I'm halfway through makeup application and my hair is still in curlers. As such folks must think I choose to wear makeup only on one side of my face!! This time, it must be the New Year working it's charms, I decided that I would be ready in the morning, so that if necessary all I'd have to do before they arrive is touch up my makeup and hair, rather than have to do a full on makeover!! So, I was made up, the house cleaned, the pizzas ordered early so I would not forget to do it. My sink was shiny, the cushions plumped... I'd even begun to put away some of the Christmas decorations!!! At 3:30, as I was cleaning the kitchen floor, the phone rang..... our Company was sick. They would not be coming after all. : ( Don't you HATE when that happens. I was ready to be all upset and stompy when it occurred to me..... wait a minute!!!! The house is spotless! The children are clean! I am wearing MAKE UP and my hair is fancy!!! The Pizza is already ordered......!!!! We actually had a state of almost perfection here and I was about to be annoyed about it!?!?! :D It couldn't be better!!! Hubster picked up the pizza on the way home and we were able to enjoy a tasty meal in a clean house and even had time to play some games with the children before bed!!!! Ahhhhhhh!!!! It's lovely when your plans can change and you end up having a better time than you even thought you would!!!
Maybe I can invite someone to not come over next week!! :D
