My House is a Mess

Thank goodness it's Friday.  I've been back at work for four weeks now and every single one of them have been crazy busy.  Recovery is still very up and down.  Last week I thought I'd turned a corner and it was officially better, then Monday I had pain that I didn't expect, Wednesday the swelly belly was back with a vengeance but today I'm feeling okay.  I'm wearing pants with a zip for the first time in a month and I confess that I've already let out the top button.  I tried.  I have my 7 weeks post op doctors appointment today.  I am thrilled to be getting off early.

MJ is going to miss my Birthday this year which is a bummer but he's doing his best to make up for it.  He got me these adorable Sperry's.  My Birthday isn't for almost two weeks but since he'll be gone I opened it early and there are a few more things on the way.  My sister wanted a pair a few years ago and I told her they were ugly.  Then later on, I changed my tune and wanted a pair becausue I think they will be really comfortable and cute for vacation.  I totally forgot about wanting them but he remembered!  He didn't even know what kind to get so he googled boat shoes and found these which are totally perfect for me because they have pink in it.  He is seriously the best gift giver.  

I am in love with these shoes and my husband for getting them for me
And now, I have five more Friday confessions.

My sister bought me a Handy Stitch upon request about a million years ago.  Now every time I see an infomercial I feel like it's taunting me because it says how easy it is and mine is sitting in a box somewhere because I couldn't even figure out how to use it.  Maybe I should have asked for the Chia Pet instead; or maybe not because I'm really bad with plants and I probably would have killed it. 

I confess that I had over 600 photos on my i phone.  I didn't have enough storage to do my update and I was getting messages that I couldn't take a picture because my cloud is too full.  If I don't understand the cloud how can I even clear it?  The husband aka tech support had me delete a bunch of pictures and I'm now down to 225.

If I wear sandals or shoes without socks to the movies I bring a pair with me to put on in the theater.  I'm always cold and I want to enjoy my movie so I do what I gotta do.  50% of the time I forget to take them off and look like a major fashion victim wearing bright polka dot socks with slip on shoes.  Tonight we are going to Cinepolis Luxury Cinemas to see 300 Rise of an Empire and I'm wearing the socks but I always bring a blanket.  After going a few times we finally discovered that the armrest between those giant recliners comes up.  The blanket makes the whole experience that much better and it fends off the AC blast.

My husband finds popcorn, napkins, string cheese wrappers and Fiber 1 cereal bits in and under the couch and it's all my fault!  It's not intentional.  I'm a neat freak in so many ways but in this one area I am apparently not.  I was once banned from eating Fiber 1 on the couch and if I don't clean up my act he will do it again. 

Speaking of which my house is filthy!  It hasn't been this bad in the four years that we've lived there.  I'm usually very OCD about such things but events beyond my control have prevented me from cleaning.  I had surgery and then MJ jumped in and cleaned.  I was planning to pick it back up but it never happened.  After going back to work and realizing I wasn't as healed as I thought I needed to rest on weekends.  Saturday was supposed to be MJ's last day here and I wanted to spend those last hours with him not cleaning house.  I don't clean on Sundays so that was that.  This weekend I have no choice.  It has to be done.  I will say that I think it was good for me to see that the world won't end if the house is a mess.  A messy house tends to agitate me and put me in a really bad mood.  It was so far gone and I felt so helpless to do a thing about it that I had to let it go.  Sometimes other things are just more important.  I want a maid!!

I've been wanting Sperry's SO freakin' bad! Those are cute :) I was just given a weekly allowance and if I save up for 2 weeks I can buy a pair! You'll have to let me know if they're worth it!

I'm always cold in movie theaters. I make sure to keep a cardigan in my car just in case I forget to bring one.

Your husband is so sweet and those shoes are really cute. You know, I'm always cold when we go to the movies, but I never thought to take a blanket with me. That's a great idea.

Amanda @ Marry Mint said...

Thats strange about your iPhone. What size do you have? That doesn't sound like enough photos to cause a storage issue. So. Frustrating! My sister SWEARS by Sperrys :) Glad your guy has good taste!

I always walk with a jacket to the theaters because I get cold easily. Those shoes look comfy and the colour is neutral which can be worn with alot of things.

I love Sperrys!! They are a staple around here..due to the preppiness factor. I want another pair!! That many photos shouldn't cause a problem. I have about 2000 photos on mine when it gives me that message. Anytime I go to the movies, I always bring a jacket (even in the summer) because it is so dang cold.

Jenny said...

I love those Sperry's!! I definitely need to buy a pair for this spring/summer! I must get on that!

Susannah said...

Awww... I love that he picked out shoes with pink in them for you! :-)

Janna Renee said...

I'm super duper sorry he has to miss your birthday because I KNOW how much that sucks. I'm glad he's already making it up to you, and those shoes are super cute!

This reminds me...I wanted to vacuum and dust my parents house today to surprise my mom!
