It seems I will be babysitting the puppies here at my own home while TSG and Joe are on their Honeymoon to make things easier on myself. I am so grateful for this as I tend to cause mischief at their place when left to my own devices. Better put, I clean!
Joe purchased his home from an older couple who left many of their belongings right where they had been for decades. Joe is a procrastinator. The older couple's items have now been right where they have lain for decades plus the three years he has lived there. (Knock Knocking)
On my first baby sitting assignment, I reorganized Joe's entire kitchen. Who keeps spices in the cupboard by the refridgerator and paper towels above the oven? Apparently the Lady of the House who no longer lives here. Joe has only now found where I relegated his water bottles.
This past baby sitting assignment, Joe again out of town, I didn't even make it through the garage entrance door. I don't know what came over me as I gazed at a garage that hadn't seen a broom since the 1960's plus three years. (Full of Bliss)
Oh my gosh did I ever sweat bullets worrying what Joe would think of his soon to be mother-in-law wading through years of dirt and grime that wasn't mine to wade through. I could barely look him in the eye at our going away dinner.
Wouldn't you just know my husband would lean across me to say to Joe, "So Joe, what do you think about your garage?"
I have learned my lesson, I tell you I have! I will be spending my babysitting time this go around making cute as can be Elf ornaments on mushrooms and reindeer and wreathes and anything else that will expend my endless supply of energy. If there is any reporting of suspicious cleaning going on, I will say, "Search for Elves!"
