December is almost over! It was a whirlwind of activity, procrastination and happiness. I am sad to see it end.
Today is my mom’s birthday. Happy Birthday Mom! I love you!
On to the realness:
A piece of lint on my kitchen floor. I think the signs are pointing towards wanting me to go somewhere. Hmmm. But where?
Pajama Party excerpt:
One of my sweet friends insisted on doing some of my dishes by hand. She handed me the wet dish to dry. I have a confession. I hardly ever (and I mean hardly ever) hand wash my dishes. I actually love to do dishes. Load them into the dishwasher. Put them away. I do it at least once a day. But every item goes into the dishwasher. I couldn’t live without it.
So, I dried them with a paper towel. I almost peed my pants laughing when she told me I was supposed to use a dish towel.
She thought I must not have any dish towels. Then I had to show her I had a collection.
She asked me what I use them for. And I said, “to dry my hands.” What a concept: dish towels be used for dishes. I will have to remember that next year when I hand wash a dish again.
It reminded me of the time I was newly married and my mother-in-law came to my house and was shocked to see me cleaning absolutely everything with just Windex.
Housekeeping has never been my strong suit.
Good thing I chose to be a housewife.
I made chocolate bowls for ice cream one night. How do you think I did?
My dresser in December. Now my whole bedroom looks like this. It was a casualty of Christmas. I hope it can be revived.
Look at what my mom and stepdad gifted me for Christmas on Saturday (we celebrated late with them). It is a necklace I have been wanting for over a year. It is from Knit Knit on Etsy. It is a hand embroidered fox wearing a bow tie!
Thank you guys! I love it!
How was your December? Are you ready for 2014? Or do you feel like I do above (and, yes, that is a giant pimple.)?
