The eagle has landed! Well at least a bunch of junk has arrived. Do you ever feel like that? When all your stuff gets to wherever you are and you were so excited to get it, but when it arrives you kinda wish you still didn't have anything? Well, I really don't feel like that, but I think my husband does. I know the kids are thrilled to have their bikes and dolls and cars and transformers and books and all the little things that make them thrive. My children (on their way to Disney World with their Grandparents) told my mom and dad that Stu and I had thrown all their toys and clothing away in Australia. Oh my mom was HOT. How could I do that? What was I thinking? I had no clue what she was talking about, but this afternoon Emma said that she thought we had thrown everything away. So there, Mom, I didn't throw everything away! Really I didn't! You can see for yourself next week when you come by to visit. Our dwelling is now bursting at the seams with Stuff.
Now, part of this I attribute to my mate. He decided to try something new with the movers. They were to not only unload the truck but also unpack the boxes and hump out their cardboard and paper. So I had big men unpacking all my fabric and kitchen and everything, so now all the beds are covered with crap and I can barely get around the kitchen due to all the dishes, pots and pans and glasses being strewn all over the place. My house looks like a total dump. I know it will get all straightened out, but for now I cringe as I go through the house. I know what I will be doing for my Labor Day weekend! What will you be doing for yours? Whatever you are doing be safe and creative!
PS, Sam is the only one still ill. So I think the flu has worked it's way through the Curtis Clan. Oh and Ike (the black cat) is totally freaked out he has wedged his body under one of the radiators. I kinda feel like joining him. Maybe everything will be tidy when we emerge. What do you think?
