Even though I don't work - at least outside of being a homemaker ;) I still dislike them. At the weekend I do not keep to the same standards of housecleaning, I'm a bit more relaxed. I'll keep the dishes done (for the most part) and the house generally tidy but I rarely do the laundry or pay the floor much attention and I'm OK with toys being around. At the weekend, I like to enjoy spending time with my hubby and that is usually when we'll get to go out together or with the family. I also concentrate on long put-off projects (such as cleaning underneath Willow's bed or my kitchen junk draw). And then, on Sunday, we have church. So Monday, for me, is back to work on the chores and back to being hubby-less during the day :(
I think I did a pretty decent job this weekend though with keeping things spic and span so I had extra time to play with Willow today. We pretended she was a baby bunny and I was a daddy fox. She had me chasing her in and out of the tent we built with some blankets hanging over the coffee table. She also painted a little wooden box from the craft store to put her jewelry in and enjoyed having me watch her.
I'm going to make more of an effort to have the house tidy in the evenings before bed so that I can relax and spend more time enjoying my babies. Time is flying by quickly, I know it.
Here's the lunch I made for her today. A bologna monkey sandwich which I cut out with kitchen scissors. And some cucumbers and chopped canned peaches. She left the cucumbers and also decided she's done with bologna!
