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.
