Ugh. I’ve been bit by the cleaning bug. Not just any regular bug, but the one where I have the compulsive need to deep clean everything. My drawers, my cupboards, my fridge. I’ve put together a chest I bought 4 years ago and have moved all my blankets there. My mom gave me a new shelving unit so I’ve cleaned out my books, transferred them to new shelves ~ took my old shelving unit to the bathroom, so have cleaned out my linen closet. Towels and toiletries are now on the shelves in the bathroom and I’ve moved some cookbooks that I don’t use a lot and various kitchen appliances to the linen closet.
I’m 200 pages into The Unfortunate Miss Fortunes ~ I really love this book, especially Lizzie and Elric’s story. I also think it’s great how smoothly the story transitions between the sister’s stories. If I didn’t know three authors had written it, I wouldn’t be able to tell a difference.
My sister can go into labor at anytime. Baby’s due 9/21, but she (baby) is already over 8 pounds ~ she could get between 9-10 pounds if she goes to term…..and even more if she goes past term. My sister should find out from the doctor tomorrow whether or not there’ll be a C-section. My sister’s hips aren’t very wide and they’re thinking this may be too much baby for my sister’s frame. After baby’s born, my sister’s going to go stay with my mom for about a week, which means kiddo will be staying with me. Hence the cleaning.
