Almost to the Finish Line
The cookies are baked, the house decorated, gifts wrapped, presents under the tree, and just a few more days of "Holiday Cleaning." I don't know about you but I only deep clean a few times a year. Usually it involves or coincides with when my sister visits. I figured out a few years ago I was skipping the fall and spring cleaning thing and was hitting it more before Christmas and summer...when people visit. I do not love to clean, so I put it off till outside pressures force me to get a move on. The other thing I realized just the other day (true confessions haha) that once my house is spit spot, I want to do all the entertaining I have tended to put off because now all I have left to do is cook! Which I thoroughly enjoy! So today some invites went out for New Years Eve. Blessed are the woman who like to cook and clean, they must enjoy entertaining more often than I ;)
A little photo thrown in for blogland sake. I took my grands out for a quick trip to the mall today to give momma a break and because I was missing the little darlings so much. I don't know if I mentioned how much of a ham our little miss Avey (aka Sweet Pea) has become. I know what you are thinking...yes it was a bit crazy to go to the mall with two little ones in tow this week. I guess you have figured out by now I was finding a charming excuse to avoid housework. Oh yes indeed you are right, I would rather go to the mall Christmas week with two little grands in tow then clean my house anyday...there I have said it...the whole world knows!
