Ever since the decision to stay in this apartment, I have gone into overdrive. I unpacked and passed on the boxes to someone else that was moving, and now I have been thoroughly de-cluttering and cleaning like it was Spring. But with the holidays right around the corner, I can’t think of a more appropriate time to be nesting–and no, I’m not pregnant.
Cleaning with a shadow (ahem, Greta) has its challenges. Unloading/Loading the dishwasher is especially challenging. As soon as I open it, she scurries over and is standing up holding a pot like, “Where does this one go?” Hopefully the extra time I take now to let her “help” me will translate to her wanting to do dishes her whole life. She follows me around all day. Always right at my ankles. She follows me from room to room and when she knows I’ll be in a room for a while, she might stray a little from my feet and explore whatever non-toy she can get her hands on. I have already surrendered my old cell phone and laptop. What are we gonna get this girl for Christmas? As challenging as it can be at times, I have a pretty cute shadow.
|Also, officially brainstorming our Christmas card.|
This morning we woke up to <----this and now I find myself wondering if I can teach her to shovel?
