I am still alive

I am just busy this week. We are working on projects but nothing is to the finished stage. I am stripping the wallpaper in our M bath. My husband has the tile down and has moved the plumbing and light fixtures and replaced the drywall. He has to mud it one more time then I can paint after that dries good.

We leave Sunday to go to Mobile to spend the night at my MIL's house and then leave Monday on our way to Mexico. My MIL is coming here to watch the kids. With football and orthodontic appointments it was easier for her to come here. I always have to leave the house clean anyway so it doesn't change the fact that I have to clean. Do you do that? I can not stand to come home to a messy house. I want fresh sheets and laundry done. I guess I want to impress the robbers.

Impress the robbers! :)

I do the same thing.

I mean, you're already going to have AT LEAST one suitcase full of dirty laundry... might as well make your homecoming as relaxing as possible, right?

I always try to leave with things clean in case we're in an accident and someone has to come in here and sort things out. Morbid! I know.

I thought I was the only one but this summer I'm finding more and more people are like me. Imagine that! Everybody seems to like returning to a clean house. Have fun in Mexico. It will be great.

Always spotless even closets and under beds. That is so weird that I even care. Char

mom to four j's- closets and under bed!!! Thanks for making me feel the stress to keep up with the four j's, now I will never be the same again. I used to could stuff it under the bed and hide it in the closet - but now, you have gone and called me on it! The shame.

I'm the same... like it all clean otherwise I feel like I'm punished when I come home from vacation by having to do housework.

Have fun in Mexico! Take lots of pictures so the rest of us can pretend we've been there, too!
