Of course, this lovely clean home fresh smelling burning candle thing usually lasts, oh, I’d say…..maybe five minutes after the grandkids arrive. Did I mention two of the grands and their parents are living with us while they build a new home? Yeah…
Did I mention two other grands come here after school every day until their parents get here after work? Yeah…
Clean house. Smelly candles. Grands. Five minutes. Tops.
Clean, clean, clean
So, right now my house is seriously resembling a barnyard. Um, do I sound like I’m kidding? Well, I am not. The doors are constantly being left open which means things come in uninvited …all …day … long. Things like dogs that make themselves at home on my bedroom sofa. You know, the one Bob and I purchased so we could sit in our boudoir in our underwear, sipping red wine, smelling our smelly candles … and stuff. Yeah, that one. Well, now it looks like this …all …day … long.
I sure hope Ruby and Gladys are comfortable on MY couch
Okay, maybe not quite that bad but close. Due to all the outside debris, I find it safer to stay indoors where I only have to face heat stroke from having no AC. At my age, I cannot afford a broken hip from being run over by a grand on a horse or a motorcyle.
Even Jake has something to say about it
Now, don’t get me wrong. I am not complaining. We are very happy to have all this life around us. We are especially thrilled that our kids are building right here on the property. This means we will not be put in a nursing home but can remain on our little pretend farm for the rest of our days. It also means that our oldest son…the one living with us…will have to take care of us when we have dementia, wear diapers and steal his car keys to go cruising at ninety-three years old.
The other siblings seem quite happy that
Matthew gets stuck with us someday
.....when we are old and incontinent
Anyway, enough chatting for today. I need to finish cleaning the kids bathroom. It’s such a great bathroom. We redid it a few years back. Made it all fancy with a double shower. Wanna see it?
Isn’t it lovely?
And here is our beautiful double shower. Isn't it....Wait…what in the world?
A barnyard, I tell ya!
Speaking of chickens....today is my sweet friend Jana's birthday. Now, I am not saying she is old but....
