My Brother-in-Law rocks! [Dec. 11th, 2007|02:31 pm]
[Current Mood |gratefulgrateful]

As a housewarming gift, Lan just came over, fixed our leaking sink, raked up a metric TON of leaves, trimmed all of our shrubs that were out of control, and really made me feel SO GOOD about how our yard looks. He's still out there 3 hours later working his butt off. I can't imagine a better gift. Seriously. I'm amazed.

If you want to give me the very best gift ever, take some tasks off of my plate that are difficult for me to do. In fact, I was so overwhelmed with the plants in general that I couldn't do this by myself, plus, I know nothing about plumbing.

Being so type A, if I feel "behind in tasks" it makes me feel like I can't relax and am not doing well in life. I worry about how crazy motherhood would make me for that reason. How could you ever not be behind in tasks with a toddler?

you know what stopped that crap at my house? I refused to take her to school (or let her find a ride) when she missed the bus. 3 days of unexcused absences, and she's out the door on time EVERY morning now. :) Of course, this morning her alarm was still going off at 6:55 and the bus comes at 7, but she made it.

She's probably tired from her late night photographic activities. *sigh*
