monday mayhem

today's a baby jake day, and so perforce, any work i would like to accomplish today, must be done, or at least half begun, by the time he shows up.

the bathroom countertop is finished. i have some drips to scrape away off the tile on the wall, but im pleased with the result. i'll post pictures when the room's completely done. if i have time today, i'd like to get the scraping done, but with baby jake, that's iffy.

a dear friend is coming for dinner. i have a beef tenderloin in the freezer, and watercress for salad. i've been craving things with leaves lately. perhaps baby jake and i will make a cake. today is a good day to cook - it's the day i clean the kitchen. i also have a mountain of laundry to tackle - i shudder to think of the state of the laundry room since meg left this morning.

if i get half accomplished of what i would like to get done, i'll be a very happy - not to mention probably tired - person tonight.

and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.

Fortunately for me and the entire family, my son does the laundry. For which I am very very grateful.

I remember trying to wash my mother's baseboards when Robert was a little boy. I'd be happily scrubbing away, and turn to find that Robert was splashing in the filthy water.
