the rest of the week

The appraiser is here as I type. Thank You Jesus for an appraisal BETTER than the tax valuation...which went WAY up this year. It'd be nice to have this financial issue taken care of.

I did get the house clean. I even spent about an hour and a half cleaning my girls' bedrooms. I know, I know, bad mamma. I'll never have responsible, law-abiding citizens by doing their work for them. But this time, I felt it necessary. They normally do all their own picking up. So for about a year, their rooms have been cleaned to their standards of clean. This week, I wanted my standard, or atleast closer to mine. So, whew, I hope it lasts more than 24 hours.

So has anyone watched all The Matrix movies? Or is that taboo as a Christian? We have now watched the first two and I'm anxiously awaiting renting the 3rd. So bizarre, yet so many spiritual analogies. I'll say for sure the second one went a little far on the sexual junk but I definitely gleaned some ponderings from the movie.

I don't have many plans for the rest of the week until Friday evening when I head to my parents', 3 hours away. So yeah, now that my house is clean, what do I do for the rest of the week....hmmmm.

My girls' rooms DEFINITELY need my hand in there a couple times a year for real purging and re-organizing. Now if only I could find someone to come into MY room twice a year for that!

I'm not a Matrix fan, but my hubby is. I did just watch The Prestige this week- good!

I love it when the house is clean! Never seen the Matrix, but I've heard they're really good.

We'll still be here on Friday. Probably leave Sunday. ugh. Sorry I haven't updated. The baby is improving slowly and hopefully will be out this week if not next.

If it's next week, we'll still be going home.
