Monday, unexpected trip

     Well I did get the bills paid and I am very broke, but they are paid.  I will have to play catch up this month. 

     We had an unexpected trip to the Boise area this weekend.  Hubby's parents had their 65 wedding anniversary.  His two sisters that live in Idaho decided to have a party and they wanted us down there.  Now realize that I along with my sister's planned a birthday party for my mother that took us a year.  Or we planned it a year in advance.  My shows are booked 2 years in advance.  I don't think of myself as a super future planner but I must be one.  We were somewhat irritated about the guilt trip we received.  But how many people do you know that are married 65 years?

     It was nice to see all my nieces and nephews, many whom I have not seen for years.  Only our oldest was able to come as she lives two hours away, but she brought our grandson so that made it worth the trip.  It was a long way to drive for a dinner.  Hubbies folks were thrilled. This will certainly throw off the budget for a bit, but again I will have to catch up.

     Both the girls were here for the weekend and the house is a mess.  Now the oldest one did clean up but our youngest (the baby elephant) did not do her share.  Every bathroom and bedroom has elephant droppings in it.  I am surprised at how hard it is for me to tolerate a dirty house.  I have so much to do today.  Three large notices for the studio, sewing to do, my Celtic teacher is in a show this week so I will have her hours, Hubby is tree planting so he is working 16 hours a day and I will have to do the bank by myself.  I don't dare have him stay up and do it with me.  SISSIE  WHERE ARE YOU!!!!!???????

  So I started in the master bathroom, where the Jacuzzi was full of sand and dirt?  Did you know you can wake board in a seal suit on the Snake river in April?  Yes, you can if you have a hot tub or a jacuzzi to crawl in and thaw.......  Anyway after cleaning the master bath and bedroom, and the two spare baths, starting laundry and picking up innumerable droppings it occurred to me that I would have to be on my feet from 2:30 until 9:30 and I sat my butt down and will continue to do things that require sitting until I have to go to the studio.  Like getting the fliers done and sewing.  The house will wait.  I don't have to change all the sheets today, or scrub the kitchen floor, or vacuum the whole house.  My OCD tendencies just make me crazy sometimes.

     Out My Window:  Chicks are thriving, it is cold and sunny today so I will stay inside.

Pray that my parents pay tuition this week.  As last week was spring break they are all due now!

Have a great a productive day.



  1. Very frustrating, but I really think baby Elephant should be cleaning after herself... unless she's 5, she really needs to be cleaning around, especially if you like to keep the house extra clean. Don't overwhelm yourself or you will get burnt out! Have a good week!

  2. Even my kids (with the oldest being 6) annoy me when they leave their stuff everywhere. I can only imagine how you feel!!

  3. Unexpected trips, while they can kind of dent your budget, usually work out pretty well. Glad you had a good time!

  4. This site was... how do I say it? Relevant!
    ! Finally I have found something which helped me.
