The past 2 months have begun to take their toll on me. The month of June was busy at work plus I was spending every spare minute trying to get the cottage ready for the renters. Sewing, cleaning, killing critters, cleaning, reparing, cleaning! Uuggh!
I even made up a special Welcome Basket for the renters. All pretty with ribbons etc and filled with wine, fancy crackers, candy etc and a little welcome note so they would have a nice greeting when they arrived. Well they left yesturday AND they didn't even leave a thank you note. Seriously?? Am I being crazy and unreasonable?? Wouldn't you think they would at least leave a little note after being there for a month?? Maybe its just me, but I was expecting one.......I would have left one!
Then there has been the steady stream of company all July. Everyone is leaving on Saturday. Now don't get me wrong - I love them and there will be a flood of tears Friday night when they leave.....but it certainly has thrown our routine off.
This is how I feel this morning.........
And I have been letting the chores go a bit. I have just been doing the bare minimum. The laundry is piling up....
And the cupboards are starting to look like Mother Hubbard's. I haven't done a full grocery shop for weeks.
But, if I can just hang on until Friday at 4:01pm, I will be on VACATION for 2 weeks. A "no company", just for me vacation. Oooh, 4 more days!
