Yikes! I mean I am so excited! I really am but my house is not as excited as I am. Lots of cleaning due tomorrow. I found the bathroom earlier this week - it is now Spic and Span (Yep, I used Spic and Span spray on all the surfaces). Tonight I started on the kitchen. Conversation with Diva: A: Your Aunt and Uncle are coming on Sunday! D: You have got to be kidding! A: Nope! They are coming for the graduation. Will be here just for the day! I would like you and boyfriend to be at the church for the service. D: Aunt and Uncle will not go to church! A: They are planning on meeting us there to watch husband give difficult child his 6th graduation certificate. Think about it! It is husband and difficult child both. Aunt is husband's sister. D: I don't know if I am ready to introduce boyfriend to family. A: Oh give me a break - he is a friend of yours, just bring him. We will grill out afterwards. D: I thought we would go out to eat. Who all is coming? A: No, we will grill out. I don't know who all is coming and I need you to help me. Can you come up with a salad and get me the list of ingredients needed so I can shop tomorrow? D: I will come up with the salad and you can take boyfriend and me shopping. I will get him to help. (boyfriend went to school to be a chef - don't think he graduated but does enjoy cooking - made broccoli cheese soup the other night - we don't care if diva stops liking him, he is staying!) A: O.K. Do you have any cash? D: Ummm Why? A: I need dishwashing machine soap. D: I will not be home until very late. A: Then you can start the machine. (now there is a novel idea! Mom does not have to be awake when the detergent gets here and the dishes will be clean before morning - how is that for time management?) D: Oh! (with a "WOW that makes sense" attitude) If I remember! So, I need to deep clean living room, dining room, and kitchen tomorrow. Any one want to come help? Conversation with Diva sounds more promising than it usually does but not for sure. I hope she atleast remembers to bring home the cleaning powder or I will have to go out in the morning. If I leave a note for her to put away the clean dishes in the rack do you think it will get done? I doubt it! I am pushing the limits for the detergent and salad. But notice she is getting someone else to do the salad for her! Diva is still Diva.
