I should be but what happens when I start is I find things like journals and sit down and read them or other memories. G's room and her bathroom are cleaned. The kitchen floor is cleaned. I am working on the rest of the kitchen and got stuck in a journal from 2002, when my grandmother Talley died. That was a very painful weekend for a lot of reasons other or coinciding with her death.
I have decided what to do for her bday party next Saturday. I am getting 9 med 1 topping pizzas delivered from Pizza Hut. I will go pay for them on Friday so the delivery will be Saturday at 11am. I will get balloons because G wants balloons. The wooden toys I got at Target will anchor the balloons and be the take home gifts for her friends. The balloons will just be all over the yard. I have table cloths (princess) for the girls to sit on the ground for the picnic. I will get a veggie tray for the adults as well as pizza and cupcakes instead of a cake for whomever. I won't do ice cream because mostly kids (or at least these kids) don't like it. I will make two gallons of cool-aid and that is it. Adults can drink cool-aid too!! I might get some bottled water too.
The jumper will come out (that is G's fav. part of the plans, that and the balloons). I think that should be a pretty good party, right? All of our China sisters are coming but two and half have said they will be late. After cupcakes I will let G open presents but my gift to her will be open and up.
Since she can't read yet I will tell you, but shhh it is a secret. I got her the Dora Talking Kitchen. She doesn't know and I have no idea if it is a mess to put together yet. I don't even know if it needs batteries or what size. Hopeful my parents will keep her Friday night and bring her home just before time for the party. That works for me so much better than having her here.
Yesterday morning G told me she wants Santa to bring her a dollhouse to her grammie's for Christmas and she will be there, but he can't come here because she "will still be afwaid." Why in April before her birthday does she have Christmas planned I don't know!!
Okay, enough break, time to get serious. Did I ever mention that I am the absolute worst house keeper in the world? It is totally genetic because I am just like my grandmother Talley!! Oh and I am not making an excuse but I literally could clean or work for 12 hours and you wouldn't be able to see what I did but I would have been working steady at it. It totally defies all logic but I have no clue what the helk I am doing. I have all the Emilie Barnes organization books among others like the messie manual. I have read them all too. Can't figure it out!!
