This weekend...

I had a lovely Thanksgiving meal at Aunt Lavonna's house. Great food that I've been eating all weekend.

I've been cleaning and cleaning. I wish I had three of me, but alas it isn't to be.

Tzipi is thrilled that her birthday is so close. We hung streamers and made cookies. I figured the more I do today, the less I have to do this coming week.

I'm tired and I've done quite a bit. I wish the house looked better than it does, but I've been so busy baking and cooking, that the house is lived in. The floors are mopped, the bathroom is spotless and even the toaster oven got TLC.

Each time Tzipi gave me lip about not stopping what I was doing and meeting her needs right away, I said, "who am I doing this for?" She looked at me and said, "me". She loves to make me feel bad whenever I say no, "you hate me" is her reply. It stings, but I know it's just that good ol child power struggle. She was a princess today though and only had a couple issues. She was a big help too.

I know my house will be spotless when the kids are grown, but I would like to have company over once in a while without having to work so hard. This too shall pass, all to quickly. I'll do my best to enjoy it while I can.

  1. It will be fine. All that will be remembered is Tzippi's glee from her Barbie party.
