Do you remember those choose-your-own adventure books that were really popular back in the 1980’s? Well, today’s post is going to follow that format.
My mother-in-law, Gardener Extraordinaire, is coming for a visit this weekend to help us do some landscaping around our house.
If you are the person who runs your household, continue reading here. So of course that has meant 2 days of cleaning the entire house, doing countless loads of laundry, dumping all the trash, airing out the guest room, washing all of the bed linens, cleaning the cat boxes and moving them out of the guest room, planning meals, making sure I had all the ingredients for the meals, scrubbing the guest bathroom, making sure we have clean towels, budgeting the landscaping purchases, trading cars with my spouse so that I have the SUV for bringing said purchases home, and making sure that we have suitable entertainments planned.
If you are not the person who runs your household, continue reading here. So of course that meant we were visited by the Laundry Fairy, the Housekeeping Fairy, and the Meal Planning and Preparation Fairy who, with a simple flick of their magic wands, effortlessly and instantaneously prepared the house for her visit.
Apparently, all of my frenetic activity of the past 2 days was only made possible due to some sort of energetic Vulcan mind meld performed between me and my cats, whereby I increased my daily energy capacity by sucking away all of theirs. Because, boy, did I get a lot done. And man, were they tired.
