I’d let you inside and sheepishly admit:
Yes, I am still wearing pajamas even though I have on my tennis shoes without socks. You know just in case I had to run out and talk to the school bus driver instead of wave to her like I do every day.
I’d be secretly hoping you had allergies (or a cold) not because I want you to be sick but because I don’t want you to be able to smell the fact that I’ve been rather neglectful of the kitty boxes this week. Springtime scented kitty litter, by the way, stinks even before the kitties “play” in it. I’d probably go ahead and sheepishly admit my neglect to you while apologizing about the smell in the house and lighting a candle.
I’d direct you to one of the two seats in the house that offered you the best chance to rise after sitting without having a cat hair fashion statement on your behind.
I’d sneak off to quickly shut a couple of bedroom doors and try to do a quick wipe down and pick up of the main bathroom in case you needed to wander that way. I’d hope you wouldn’t notice the overflowing laundry in the hallway.
Would you like some coffee? It’s pretty much Folgers or forget it around here. There are a couple of hot tea options though. If you said, you’d simply like a glass of water, I’d pray the glass I grabbed out of the cabinet didn’t have the weird film on it. We think it is residue from my Emergen-C drinks but are not entirely sure. There’s really not anything exciting to offer in the food department. Some Trader Joe’s Oreo like cookies, perhaps? Hopefully, the tween didn’t return the empty box to the pantry and it still contains cookies.
How have you been? Me? I’ve been busy getting ready to hand over my PTA president duties. I have surprised myself by having mixed feelings about letting go but over all my feelings are of the WOOHOO! variety. We’ve tried to be outside a lot with the wonderfully, warm weather that started on Sunday but sadly, is supposed to end today. Snow flurries in May? Surely, they are kidding! The boys and I bought (too many) plants for the garden on Sunday. We all went fishing on Tuesday night after I came back from one of my final PTA meetings. We caught nothing but I did spy a brown bat in one of the trees and snapped a decent picture of it.
Yesterday, I went to Bath and Body Works and purchased 25 foam soaps as end of the year PTA gifts. The cashier said someone bought 65 soaps the day before. I certainly hope that was also for some sort of organization and not a stockpile! Personally, I won’t use their soap because it is all Anti-Bacterial. I wish they would make some “normal” soap. We also planted all our plants in the garden.
Today is going to be all about laundry and PTA paperwork as I’m still tying up loose ends and finish out my year.
Unless, you’d like to stay for lunch and give me an excuse to put it all off for another day? I’d love that!
