If I told you that Aliens had come and taken over my house hold you would laugh because it would simply NOT be true. But I have to tell you this…something happened today.
I don’t know if it was some of Kat’s energizer bunny energy left over from after Christmas or if was aliens, but something got into me today and, phew I am glad it has passed.
At about 11:00am the occurance happened…all of the sudden I started cleaning out the end tables, sofa tables, and coffee tables. (They are mission style and open up on one side and have lots of junk, ahem, I mean stuff piled in them).
Then, horror of horrors, I started to pull out the stuff in my pantry.
Now…for you to fully grasp the alien sighting you must realize something about me.
1) I don’t really like to cook
2) I am not very good at it, and
3) I am not one of those spotless clean type people
(I like neat and tidy, but not spotless)
So, when I started to unload the pantry I thought my dear sweet husband was going to pass out on me. I assured him that I was in my right mind (rethinking that statement), and by all means, leave me alone in case it passes.
Can I share something with you that is truly sad, scary, funny, and slighlty embarrassing???
I found boxes of food that expired in 2004 (yep, 2004…I told you it was embarrassing). The pantry shelves are super deep so the stuff in the back tends to stay in the back (apparently for YEARS!!!). I proceeded to purge the pantry of the outdated food and then scrubbed all the shelves.
At this point I was thoroughly dirty, digusting, and just ready for a shower. BUT…I had one more cleaning attack left in me…I stripped the beds and put on some fresh sheets and sprayed white cotton linen spray all over them. (I can NOT wait to go to bed tonight, I LOVE fresh sheets!!!)
So, here I am…worn out, bone tired, and ready to unwind by reading your blogs!!!
Oh, before I forget, I wanted to tell you about the aliens… Ephesians 2:19 says, “Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household.“
Your Friend the Alien,
