Swept. Mopped. Vacuumed. Did two loads of laundry. Cleaned out under the roll-top desk. Sorted the paper mountain from the top of the microwave. Killed the clothes monster.
My college kids are getting ready to go back, Aaron this afternoon, Mali and Mirielle tomorrow.
I am picking some kids up from school today and taking them to the big library, Evelyn is almost dying for another stack of books. Unfortunately, I have a big fine to pay from that book I just didn't get back....for weeks. ouch.
Paul texted me a picture of beagle puppies. A guy at his work has them. Cuteness! The question is, would we be crazy to get a second dog? Would we regret it a million times over? Would a beagle ever be as sweet as Suri? Beagles are supposed to be good with kids, and sweet and cuddly and affectionate. Can I housetrain another puppy without going crazy? I don't know. I just know that if I see on, I will take it. Can't resist. Paul texted me the picture, and I was on the computer looking up whether they are good with kids....and yes, they seem to be.
Oh well. I haven't eaten lunch yet, and my lunchtime is noon. Ha, I set a time for myself, then if I want to eat anything earlier, I just don't, because it isn't lunchtime yet.
I am going to miss my college kids! They will be swirled back up in the vacuum of schoolwork, tests, clinicals, studying...dang. It has been so nice for them to have a break from the stress. Aaron and Mirielle only have this one semester left, then they have to pass the exam....and they will be registered nurses!
