Today I tackled cleaning the bathrooms. I know nobody cares about the bathrooms. Ever notice how our heroines NEVER clean? Unless, of course, they are maids for rich dudes haha. But in my house, the maid’s name is Christine and she cleans. Actually, I don’t mind it except for the bathrooms. I am allergic to cleaning toilet bowls. Period. The. End.
Work and Whimsy December 2, 2009
But they still need cleaning. So today I cleaned a bathroom, worked on the MS, cleaned another bathroom, and worked again on my MS, and cleaned another one and …. woohoo! The MS is looking way better cause I loved sitting down to write vs cleaning commodes. So my one hour was met! Yah.
Now that’s the work.
Here’s the whimsy.
I got to go CHRISTMAS SHOPPING today and new baby clothes for my neighbor’s adopted baby girl. And I got to visit the gorgeous baby afterward…. oooh…. snuggled and cuddles and the blessings abounded. What a charmer.
I also had time to sit and LISTEN to my neighbor’s incredible story about this adoption because I am allowing myself time to be a friend. I also got to listen to my DD’s funny tales about her latest gimpy moments in Honors Chemistry (I can commiserate with her teacher). I laughed. I also got to hear her pride in her voice about her grades. She is a straight A student with a 98.25 average and the girl wants to IMPROVE? So, I am a proud mom–she’s got ambitions. But most of all, she’s got dreams…. love that….
More Whimsy…. my DH brought home our Angel Tree tag: an 85 year old man. Awe. He wants a jogging suit size small and colorful T-shirts and this is the best part: A STUFFED ANIMAL. Well, my DD and I are all over this dude. We want to bring him home and adopt him. Wow. So guess where we are going this weekend? BUILD A BEAR!! Cause our Angel deserves a super special stuffed animal to keep him company.
And you know what? I am very glad I am taking the time to build this bear with my darling daughter.
Writing is wonderful, but without reality, we have nothing to write about. And you can bet this bear scene will show up somewhere in my writing.
Ooh… what a fabulous day!
