Wes and I went to Sears to pick up our new dryer today! It's a little slimmer than the old one, which came right out and the new one went right in. Now I need to get a handle on my laundry again. No excuses! Just do it!
Wes and I had an appointment this morning that last on into the afternoon. When I got home, I noticed that someone had straightened up my desk and the rest of the house (that someone being my daughter!), and she was working on some laundry when we came in. She's a big, big help to me. When she was little, I wondered if she'd ever learn how to clean her room or fix her hair or wash the dishes, but now she has grown into a young lady who is already much better at homemaking than I am! She has a natural ability to organize and quickly get things in order, and she loves for things to be clean and neat around her. Somehow I missed the genes for getting things done and went straight to the part about liking things in order: I've always had a hard time getting from wanting order to getting order! I'm so glad to see my little girl growing up into a confident homemaker! Maybe she won't have all the problems I did as a young wife. Praise the Lord!
Wes and I get to go out to lunch tomorrow. That will be so nice! I've already planned to put chili in the crockpot tomorrow morning, made with the leftover beans from tonight, which simmered in the crockpot all day today. I have another appointment tomorrow afternoon, which I'll tell you about tomorrow night, that will interfere with our regular supper time, so I want to have supper a little early so I'll have plenty of time to make my appointment.
I'm planning to get the dusting done tomorrow morning. It's been a couple of weeks since I've paid attention to the dusting, so the house is really in need of it. Plus, dusting gets me around to all the rooms to pay attention to the little tiny hot spots of clutter in each room that I just gloss over through the week! And, of course, still tackling that laundry monster that got out of control. The one thing my dryer doesn't have, that I forgot to check on? A buzzer! So Wes bought me a timer to use so I won't forget that the clothes are in there. What a guy!
