I need a cleaning fairy...

And a cooking fairy, and a laundry fairy and well, you get the picture. I am so not complaining about how busy we are but dang-I am seriously packing on some pounds from eating on the run. I am resorting to picking up clothes, smelling them then putting them back on (okay it's not quite that bad yet but still). This business needs as much time and attention as we can give it (probably the reason I am still at the office right now). Dreamsicle's illness meant 5 days of X*boy watching her at the house since she was too ill to go to daycare. I do not have to worry about the care Dreamsicle receives from X*boy-he ranks real high on her favorite person list but the house looks like a bomb went off every day when I get home and I think if this keeps up I may begin using my stove as a decorative object since it isn't being used to cook anything.

Chasing My Tail

Chinese New Year began yesterday. I had every intention of starting the New Year honoring some of the traditions that go along with the celebrating. Doing things like thoroughly cleaning my house, decorating appropriately, handing out red envelopes-making a yummy dinner.

But the unexpected delay in getting out of Vegas which put us home on Sunday rather than Saturday coupled with Dreamsicle needing all of the time, attention and love I can give her right now since she is very ill brought my good intentions to a screeching halt.

Thankfully she is only three so she won't remember that we did nothing but I think just to be safe I should start planning now for next year.

Where Is The Time Going?

Wow, I blinked and January is almost over! Things have been crazy busy with work-I'm hoping that by the middle of February we will be able to slow down a little. Dreamsicle is spending more than enough time in the "oppice" with us. It hasn't helped that we have been virtually house bound because of the frigid temperatures. We watched the news this morning and it looks like there is another arctic blast coming our way-just in time for our return home. Blech.

We were able to spend time with my older sister this past week. Her family moved into their new home a month ago and all I can say is Wow! It is absolutely beautiful. And so deserved after everything that she has survived over the years. I am so proud of you Ginger-you go girl!
