I was going to wash all the dishes and then take the picture, but let's get real here- This is what my sink always looks like. It is always full. Always. And I hate that. No matter if I do dishes right before I go to bed, they jump out of the cupboard, mess themselves up and then arrange themselve in a messy out of order pile in the sink. Matt, what a great son he is, knows how waking up to dishes in the sink makes me grumpy. For my mother's day present, he stayed up, caught the dishes in their nightly romp, cleaned them up, scrubbed the sink and countertops and stove so that I could get up to a sparkling kitchen. Best present I ever got. Love you son.
1. My kitchen sink
2.Inside My Fridge
Yesterday the milkman came, but I will probably have to buy at least 1 gallon to get us through to next Wed. I need a cow.
3.My favorite shoes
These look a little worse for the wear and well they should. They were my Grandma Swapp's shoes and she gave them to me when I was in high school. I wore them all the time during high school and college and after for about 3-4 years. They are starting to fall apart. The shoe laying down has a split down the side and I need to take them to a cobbler to be fixed. I keep looking for another pair, but can't find exactly what I want. Just a side note- in the movie Raiders of the Lost Ark, Karen Allen's character wears a white pair just like this in the scene where she and Indie are thrown into the tomb by the Nazis.
notice Trevor's uniforms hanging from the door.
5. My Laundry pile- the scariest pictures of the whole post
The laundry room is a couple of bi-fold doors in front of the machines and is part of the family room. I have tried many different ways to help with the never ending supply of dirty clothes, here is the latest. They were empty 2 days ago, I promise.
And I have no idea why the clothes that are in there are not sorted properly. JAKE, you need to do your chore so I can do mine!!
I have moved the bookcases to make a "wall" between the laundry and the family room. Here is where I would like some shelves to hold the baskets.
6. What my kids are doing right now
Jake playing the PSP
Brandi headed to clean her room- yet again (still? finally?)Jess filling out college financial aid/scholarship applications.
In all truth though, since I started this post, things have changed. My house is never quiet for long and now is no exception. Ethan is in the front room playing the piano, Jake is downstairs playing the drum set. I guess I should just be glad that the tuba is still in it's case!
7. My favorite room
Ok, so that porch is really not mine, but someday I will have a house with a porch like that and it will be my favorite room, I promise. I love sitting on the porch.
I really don't like my house at all. It is poorly designed and laid out an doesn't flow well at all. And it has too much stuff in it that need constant cleaning. But, if I have to choose a room in this house that is my favorite, it would be my front room. Thanks, Sharon for helping me make it liveable.
8.My most recent purchase
A dress for my niece's wedding. But, since it is white and I don't want to upstage the bride the jacket I find to go with it needs to be a color. I am thinking red to go with my new shoes.
9. My fantasy vacation.
I would go somewhere that the buildings are old. Like Ireland. I want to feel the oldness and experience the history.
Or somewhere with a beach where I can relax and have nothing to do and all day to not do it.
10. My Self Portrait
I need a haircut. And maybe a body perm. Or a hat.
