For what it's worth

I still haven't managed to sit down and write (we had two days in a row of shitty napping and all out toddler mayhem) but I did manage to sweep and mop the disgusting dining room and hall floor AND my giant mountain of laundry is down to 1 more load.. maybe a touch more.

Hell yeah!

Also, made a concentrated effort at resuming daily play/learn time with Q.  So far, he's loving it, and I'm glad to be plugged into the idiot box so much and back into MY life. 

My knitting that suffered is now getting resumed, woo!  Hell, I'll even have Q's Christmas pants done in time for Christmas morning.

Donnie comes home tomorrow night (YAY!) and I am so happy.  I miss him so much.  We've really hit our stride lately, marriage wise, and it feels FUCKING good after all the struggle we went through to get here.  Marriage is hard.  But so worth it.

Only 9 more days until our house guests/temporary roommates arrive and thankfully my list of "OMG get the house presentable" things is about half done.  The living room is still haphazard, but a lot of that is due to limited storage space.  I coat rack and some shelves will solve that nicely, I am just waiting for Donnie to return so I can get him to help.

Annnnd I just caught Quinlon climbing on the chair that is LAID DOWN (because he was using it to climb on the table when it was standing up) to, you guessed it, climb on the table and take candy out of my purse.  Oy.

Sweeping and mopping is always my Everest. OMG I hate it. So you get huge props for getting that done AND laundry!

Gotta give the little guy credit for creativity- and for really going after what he wants!! He saw that candy and found a way to make it work and get his little paws on it! Hee hee...
