Most of the time, I don’t get into the whole “housewife” mentality. But there are times, especially after very busy work weeks, that I really enjoy just spending time at home doing laundry, cleaning, and catching up on all the stuff that keeps our house going. Today has been one of those days. I’m almost done with the laundry, and I am looking forward to using our BRAND NEW DISHWASHER for the very first time. Well, it’s been run through a cycle once just to make sure it was working after installation, but now I finally get to use a dishwasher again to wash our dishes, something I haven’t had since we moved into this house last October. Somehow I end up feeling very much like a geek for writing all of this, but the truth is I’m excited to get these things organized at home because it will give me a rest when I come back home after work tomorrow. Currently, my office looks like it’s been hit by multiple natural disasters, so I will spend tomorrow cleaning up the aftermath of VBS. It’s just easier on the weekend with services and needing to get the church back to normal to turn my office into a dumping ground. And for the rest of the week we have people sleeping at our church, so I had to get crafts and games and signs out of the way. I’m just thankful I had the foresight a few months ago to start taking Mondays off, since I’m only a part-time employee. I go into the church to work on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday normally. Last week was naturally an exception to that, but with taking classes on Monday evenings it gives me a day to focus on home and school. I will post some VBS pictures from the office tomorrow.

Weird. I subscribed to you in Google reader, and I thought you just hadn’t been posting, but you have! I wonder why Google wasn’t telling me? I resubscribed so we’ll see what happens now. 🙂
I don’t mind cooking in the least, and cleaning up the kitchen isn’t a big deal to me. Loading the washer and dryer, fine. But folding laundry, cleaning up clutter, dusting vacuuming, mopping…ugh. I wish I could hire a maid so I could spend more time cooking and playing outside with Annalie! I am glad you guys got a dishwasher though.
