Good morning, Monday. ^^

Contrary to expectations, my daughter came home from boarding school on Friday afternoon instead of Saturday evening. There was supposed to be school on Saturday, to make up for the extra day of fall vacation - but since Bavaria was expecting a bad winter storm, school had been called off and the kids sent home. So that kind of changed my weekend plans. ^^

No. I don't mind my daughter coming home early - I had just counted on one more evening to myself, since the still-husband unit was away - and expected to be away until Sunday (cheers, joys, dances!).

But then we had a really nice weekend together.

Though we spent most of it cleaning parts of the house, we still enjoyed doing it together. We re-arranged the kitchen counter, we cleared out several drawers that had been accumulating all kinds of junk, re-arranging the dishes that were in there instead. Now the junk's gone, and the dishes sorted properly. We even put away some things that had not really had a place of their own, yet.

Both evenings we cooked together - she helping me, and I making her favourite: mashed potatoes, Ravensilver-style. ^^ She ate so much, she was stuffed. *gg*

Saturday evening we watched "Last Action Hero" together, cuddled on the couch, each of us with a cat on her lap.

Between each cleaning action, we put in another load of laundry. By now I'm down to two - out of maybe 12 or 13 loads... >.> She always brings home *mountains* of laundry from boarding school. It's not only clothes, but also towels, bed sheets, table cloths etc. *sigh*

So Sunday continued the cleaning spree - she her suitcases and school stuff - me, my bedroom, which I'd neglected terribly. Removed about 15 books from my bedside, sorted all the printed out GW fanfics into two binders (a blue and a violet coloured one... yes, I'm silly...), realized that I am going to need some place to put all the little knick-nacks and stones and jewellery - so I'm going to go look for a drawer box or something like that today, put new sheets on the bed and vaccuumed the hell out of the place.

So now there's only half of the house waiting to cleaned, rather than all of it. ;) Maybe I'll run the vaccuum-cleaner through my office at lunch...

Now it's Monday, the stacks from Friday are still on my desk, and I'm going to have to go dig through them. :)

Have a good week! *HUGS to all*

I should hire you and your daughter to take care of my house. ^___^ I'm glad you managed to make work into something fun!

I wouldn't be any good... we only managed half the house. Didn't do the office, or her room, or the guest room or... ;)

Well, usually I spend even the weekends working on the computer, so it's nice to just stay away from the office once in a while and get re-aquainted with my daughter. Since we only see each other on the weekends. :)

It sounds like a lovely weekend, cleaning aside. ^__^ I remember how much I liked just hanging out with my mom when I came home from college (I only got to come home twice a year for a month or two). I'm sure she really appreciated the time as well.

Well, she hasn't hit the bad side of puberty, yet. ;) So she's still enjoying being at home with mom. Of course, being away all week tends makes her appreciate it more... ^^ We'll see what happens once she gets into the 'interesting' part of puberty. :)

Now, its back to...


It's really the most evil of all four-letter words.

Indeed - have been good all day. ^^ Working away, driving to bring more books to the post office. Waiting to hear from my betas concerning the translation... ^^

Oh my... what a big amount of work but it's so lovely to do it together with people you love... Usually my hubby is the help for me. But not for all XD XD XD sometimes he is the cause of the junk around home. Sigh... but it's ok, it's part of the game...
Hugs tight
Have a great Week, I'm returning at work too...

It's lots more fun to do it together... ^^ Well, she's *certainly* the cause of enough chaos around here (I won't even *look* into her room...), but she's willing to help, so it's all for the better. :)

Working away, working away... ^^

You have a good week, too! And hugs, also, to your hubby. ^^

Just a hug. I'm glad your daughter is home.

*HUGS back lots*

Thanks. ^^

I wish I could help you with your job hunt... >.> I'm just too far away to be able to do anything for you... *sigh* I'll just keep thinking good thoughts, maybe it helps...
Nov. 25th, 2008 12:09 am (UTC)
The good thoughts do help. Knowing you (everyone!) is there for me to rant at and whine at makes a huge difference. I know I can count on you guys, if no one else.
Nov. 24th, 2008 11:30 pm (UTC)
Boy, you sure know how to show a girl a good time! ^o^ *ducks*
It was too good of a straight line... *snerk*
Nov. 24th, 2008 11:41 pm (UTC)

Actually, some of the sorting and cleaning activities were *her* idea, not mine. ;)

But we did have fun together. *Especially* because we were 'just us girls'... ^^
