Morbid Like That - TMI

If you are my mother or husband or don't like TMI posts, pretend this post is about making some lovely snowflakes and go visit How About Orange.

I have been cleaning all day, vacuuming this and dusting that. The reasons are twofold: one, we are expecting some rather lovely people who have been supportive of Ty and know of his love for music to enjoy singing from Mindy Gledhill and a few of the Lower Lights AND two, I am having surgery right before Christmas.

So.

Must clean the house in case, you know...the unthinkable happens. Because worse than leaving this world sooner than you're ready to is leaving it with a dirty house.

Right. Back to steaming the shower and scrubbing the floors.

(No, I really don't think I'm going to die on the table, I'm just a wee bit superstitious. Clean house = nothing bad will happen.) Anyone else like this?

I am also busy making treats, please to eat them all when you come.

P.S. The surgery is not a big deal, my baby-maker is just being rude and uncooperative and must vacate the premises. I will miss you baby-maker, and thank you for growing my five lovely babies. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

P.P.S. I know the timing seems strange, right before Christmas and all, but when you can't lift for 6 weeks and you have an 85 lb. son who requires daily lifting....well then, you have to do it when your husband is home and can help. That, dearies, is just life.

And now if you'll excuse me, my wood floor is begging to be polished.

I'm sure you will be OK, but it's a big deal!

Good luck and let others take care of you! You deserve a break

Timing IS everything--and as a mom you've gotta do it when you've got help! Good luck. Everything will be fine. Wish we lived closer so I could come and do your laundry and eat your treats...

You know I am every bit as superstitious. If it takes a clean house to make your surgery go well, then that is a small price to pay, right?

When is it scheduled (so I can think extra good thoughts on that day)? Good luck! If you need anything that I can help with, please let me know!

having a clean house before surgery is a must, before both my babies and every surgery I've ever had my house has been scrubbed spotless

good luck, dang babymaker..

Whenever something stressful is happening, I start mopping the floor. I think it's a control thing.

Best of luck with your recovery. Baby makers are a blessing and serve their purpose--but they can be a real hassle!

Definitely a case of good AND bad timing. So sorry it has to be done at all, but so glad you'll have your sweetie there to help you!

Oh my dear Mrs O - I had no idea this was hanging over you. Not at all TMI, more like NotEnoughI. I'm so glad you will have beautiful music in your spotlessly clean house and hope all that resultant serenity will speed the recovery along. Because of course you will recover. You are amazing, you know. But not so amazing that we need you lifted to a higher sphere just yet. We still have bike rides to do and you have promised to come here and ride with me, remember?

I wish I was nearby to bring you some dinner. Dumb babymaker, indeed.

I don't know if anyone ever comes back and reads the comments, but thank you all for your well wishes.

I am going to positive think this one to a speedy recovery.
