Day Of Desperate Housewife

What a relaxing weekend. The Boy spent Friday and Saturday night with his father. That meant I had all of Saturday to do just as I pleased. It turned out to be a gray, rainy day, which I happen to enjoy very much, especially if I can spend it lying on the couch reading, drinking tea, eating chocolates, and napping. And that's exactly what I did.

Book Club

Finally finished "Tree." Can't believe I haven't read it before now. My mouth was literally hanging open during the weaning of the "unnatural" four year old kid. I'm very glad I didn't have to resort to anything like that with the Boy.
We're doing "The Kite Runner" next.

What I'm Reading Now

The Perfect Storm by Sebastian Junger.
V. interesting, even more so now that I've actually seen Gloucester.
The first time I read this, I found it very disturbing, as my then-husband spent much of each summer on his father's sailboat.
What do you know? It's not bothering me at all, this time!

My Bathroom WAS Clean

I'd say my housekeeping is pretty average for someone with a full-time job, a 2 year old, and no energy.
However, every once in a while, I get a wild burst of cleaning energy, and clean everything in sight. I had one yesterday, two hours before the Boy was due to be dropped off after two nights with his father.
I scrubbed every surface in the bathroom, cleaned out the medicine cabinet, and later in the day, even got Peter to come over and hang a shelf so I'd have more room for towels and bathroom junk. I also scrubbed the kitchen floor on my hands and knees instead of with the mop, and dusted like a mad woman.
The place looked so clean.
Then, the Boy came home.
I think that's really all that needs to be said.
