a risks-it, attacks it, green and yellow basket

there's been something on my mind of late, well, a bunch of things, truth be told, but this particular thing was first on the list.  i had to tell my heart temperature to a group of people.  no one was forcing me to make any declarations, but in my head and in my gut i knew the climate of my heart had to be revealed, all jokes aside.  i told them how much i care about them, how big i want to spend time with them, and that hopefully we can meet up in the spring.  (oh, did i say spring? because i was thinking spring.)  i realize one omission, however.  didn't seem to mention that there are two huge reasons why i hope they'll see me in the spring, rather than this fall:  we're having a VIP to stay for september, maybe more, and, i really don't have any moolah set aside right now.  that small reason is a really big reason, but the first reason is the main reason why i can't be gallivanting around the midwest in the coming season.

so i went right on ahead and said it first.  "Youse are super fantastic."  the whole conversation had been on the back burner; tonight, i just had to clean the stove top.

in preparation for the aforementioned VIP, we are in the midst of a house-al overhaul.  we're moving our bedroom upstairs, making our current room into the guest room.  the upstairs is our toy disaster zone.  i am determined to sort all those various sizes and shapes and make definite homes for them in the kids' bedroom.  we're painting the living room.  one wall done.  i have to declutter the kitchen, this computer desk, my purse...heh, heh.  i've done a really thorough job decluttering the checking account, so that's good. er, wait.  anyhoo, this house organizing and minimizing is a rather overwhelming task.  i'm sure i'll be up until 3 am the day before our VIP arrives.  which will ensure some lovely dark circles under my eyes, detracting from my voluminous chins/cheeks.  see? everything has it's purpose.  oh yeah, i need a new shower curtain.  the green one is ripped.  the hubbinator and i are going to try figure out how to put up the new light fixture in there, too.

OOH! my head be a jumbled!  my whole point is, i'm happy i told who i told what i told.  it cleared the way for me to think about this pressing matter of all the matter of facts within these four walls.  i got a lot of cleaning to do, lucy.

Wow, what an undertaking! This VIP must be VI. Let us know how it goes! I love the dark circles under the eyes comment. Chuckling out loud here, but no one can hear me because Hans is snoring louder than my chuckle.

I wish you could put me to work. I just overhauled my house - half of it anyway - and it was such fun I was wishing I had more to do.

Also love the phrase, "heart temperature".

I'm thinking that you aren't the only one with the small but big reason for a spring fling. Actually, I'm knowing it.

-from the one that rhymes with

I replaced all my light fixtures - I know how to do it if you need helpsies.
Decluttering is a pain in the wazoo but if feels so so good afterwards. When the physical clutter is gone somehow emotional and psychological clutter fades as well.
