Busy day… have company coming for dinner (a very old friend haven’t been in touch with since 1999 or so!) and the kids pick the darndest times to make new messes. Right now I have Miriam cleaning up a very large spill of Cheerios from my carpet and I am about to vacuum the bran muffin off the living room carpet… A few minutes ago I went into the kitchen to load the dishwasher and it was on. It didn’t register for a minute that I hadn’t turned it on. Tick, tick, tick, “JIREH!!!!” It was all but empty. Anyway, off to my busy day. I also really should bathe the girls and go food shopping, too, all before 5… let’s see how I do.
