    And then there's my sweet, cute, adorable little love button daughter who asks for a strawberry every minute... literally. MOM! more stwawbewwy! I want stwawbewwy!

    EVERY.SINGLE.MINUTE!! I swear it. I'd leave them out for her, but she'd take the whole bowl, end up in my bedroom with them (where the 2nd tv is that she is usually stuck watching b/c dad or big brother took the one in the living room), and they'd end up all over my bed or on the carpet...

    I can practically hear you rejoicing about being on the path back to normal. Almost there...

    Jenn, that's the life of people with young children. At least the ones who are also holding down full-time jobs. Stop and smell the roses, it's the only thing that will keep you sane. Some day the memory of "I want stwawbewwy" will make your heart melt. So when your heart wants to melt now, let it. You will have many years to get the house clean.

    You're too right, Judg. Maybe I'll try to get her to say it tonight so I can record it for y'all to hear. It's too cute. But, honestly, when there are 30 different requests flying at you all at once, in a span of 3 minutes, it's overwhelming and less than enjoyable.

    I'll try to record her so I can enjoy it in less stressful times.

    When my now 17 yr old son was little and got into trouble, he would lose his game boy privileges. His grandparents would call to talk to him. He'd say in a very sad voice "I lost my prijuwedges"

    boring is definitely better than drama! And "normal" always trumps chaos! You love you're life - don't ever be-little that.

    You know, this is probably the only forum where you'd have to clarify that!

    It seems GP and I have the same problem within our houses. I think we both need a cleaning fairy.
    After 25 years, I can safely say "There is NO cleaning fairy" However, when I had babies, I DID have a laundry fairy! My MIL would come over, load up ALL the dirty laundry, take it to her house, wash, dry, mend, fold and return it!!! It was AWESOME!!!
    Someday I will do the same. (Although I will NOT mend the really cool jean knee holes...)

    I used to have a framed poem:

    "Cleaning and dusting
    Can wait till tomorrow
    For babies grow up
    We've learned to our sorrow
    So quiet down cobwebs
    Dust go to sleep
    I'm rocking my baby
    And babies don't keep"

    I wonder what happened to it??

    Super clean houses are for people who have NO kids, NO animals, a really good paying job, and a cleaning company on retainer. Otherwise --- a little dust, dirt, grime and dog/cat hair never hurt anyone! (well, unless you have allergies)

    Sabine, I've been extremely busy the last few weeks and didn't get to the forum, but I'm SOOOO HAPPY to read the good news!!! I've been thinking of you often (and NK too...wonder if she got a new job in meantime? Will have to run over to her journal!)
    I'm slowly catching up with journals .
    I hope that from now you'll only have good news for a while!

    Gearing up for Thanksgiving

    The house is clean(mostly). The counters are cleared. The lists are made.

    Now the fun begins.

    With our sink problems I have come up with the (brilliant!) idea of making some of the vegetable dishes ahead of time. I really love all the cooking on The Day so I've never bothered do much ahead stuff(Except for pies. Let's face it, there's no way for a normal person to make 20 pies in one day.) But not wanting to be lugging pail after pail of water away, I've gotten crafty.

    I'm going to make the cranberry sauce, the creamed spinach, the green beans, the sweet potatoes, and the corn-crookneck squash dishes today(up to the point of being cooked). They will all hold well, and may even taste better for two days of 'melding'.

    I'm also going to make a few of the sturdier pies.

    Several years ago I bought party servers that hold five pies each- three of them. Those will come out of the attic and be ready to receive.

    I'll also be moving the furniture around a bit today. Our kitchen table is a little cramped for six, and since we'll be pulling out the extras for 8+ on Thursday anyway, I'm just going to do it ahead of time this year, and move our L-bench into the family room. Well, unless it looks horrible. Then I will put it all back as quickly as possible.

    Hope everyone is having as good a time as I am!
