“The waiting is the hardest part…”

I’ve been busy since about 8:30 this morning, in between cooking and cleaning. And there was a lot to clean:

Sadly, this is what my living room looks like most of the time. It’s hard to keep clean for more than about a week at a time, before we all start slipping into our lazy ways once again! The dining room is only slightly better:

I have a very bad habit of just piling stuff at the end of the dining room table, and more nights than not, we end up eating dinner with a pile of my junk shoved off to one side! My desk is especially messy this time, though:

Although, in my defense, it’s not nearly as bad as it once was. And slowly, but surely, I got the bathroom cleaned, most of the food for tonight made (I do still have to work on the panzanella), and the rest of the house presentable:

The living room does look a little barren now that the bambino’s toys are all cleaned up:

No matter. Within 24 hours, they’ll be strewn about again! And with that, I best get my ‘maters chopped up, my pecan bars cut, and the table set…I’ve only got an hour and a half left before people are supposed to arrive! I’ll be back tomorrow with food and recipes!

Sharing is caring!

    • That’s usually how I feel about stuff too–If I can see the bottom of something, it’s fine! But notice how I took the picture from far away–So you couldn’t see the layer of dust all over everything! :)
