We are leaving on a quest tomorrow to visit my sisters-in-law. Our plans are to take some clothes for their kids, have Brady's hair shaped up, visit with them, and sis-in-law has offered to do some work to my hair. Unfortunately the styles she has in her magazines are considerably shorter and I'm not sure if I'm up for that much of a change. Highlights were also included in this change. We'll see what happens.
Our trip will take us about 2 1/2 hours one way and we will return again on Sunday so I am cleaning. And cleaning. And cleaning some more. Not only am I on a "we're leaving so I want to come home to a clean house" cleaning spree but I'm also on a spring cleaning mode. Off and on this week (usually about the time the kids get ready for bed) I have been hit with a nesting urge to spring clean. I have cleaned out cabinets, counter tops and one fridge (we have two). I hope to have my dishes washed (or at least loaded in the dishwasher), my microwave cleaned off (and out) and my second fridge cleaned by the time I settle down to bed for the night. I know I will be no where near where I want to be as far as cleaning when I leave, but it will be nice to know that I can come home to a mostly clean kitchen.
