Preparing for Company
M's parents are coming tomorrow! How exciting! The house is still a mess! How typical! M and I spent a good portion of today trying to get the house in shape, and it looks better now, but it's still not clean. I'm so very, very bad at clean. I feel bad that I won't be able to teach Robert clean, and I just hope I can get better myself in time to teach him anything. One thing I am proud of is that I disassembled the vacuum cleaner and got the clog out of it all by myself this time instead of having to take it to the shop. The repair guy taught me how to do that back in Champaign to save the 12 dollar repair cost. Love that guy! It wasn't exactly brain surgery, just five Phillips screws, but still. It's kind of cool to have an appliance I can do a minor repair on. And it's really nice to be able to vacuum properly.
This weekend is going to be super busy, with M's folks coming tomorrow and mine the day after. I don't know how much I'll be able to update, but the upshot will be lots of pictures from lots of cameras that are better than my little Coolpix. I love my little camera, and it takes good pictures, but not great. I'll make sure that at the baptism, we use the best cameras, and the vid cam as well. This time I will remember to communicate the importance of not abusing the pause function, and hopefully I will not end up with fifty pieces of video. =D Robert's outfit is so cute, and last week he managed to sit through all of church without needing to be taken out. We'll see if he can repeat the feat this week!
In other news, I tried to rearrange the pantry and have come to the conclusion again that we have a lot of food. Which is funny, because as soon as we run out of ground turkey and tuna, we start wondering what we're going to eat. I need to get more creative with the food we have, rather than sticking to staple foods. For instance, I have six packs of hot dogs in the freezer. I'm sure I will think of something good.
