Company Girl Coffee

Have you noticed the little "Company Girl Coffee" button on the side bar?  (Feel free to click on it now and come on back when you're done.)

Are you back?  Don't you just LOVE Rachel's blog?  I certainly do.  She's been such an inspiration to me over the past few years.  Her daily "Simple Things" are easily done and give such a feeling of accomplishment.  Most days that is all I need; a nudge in the right direction.  Once I have some momentum, not much can stop me.

I've been sick for the past few weeks.  Nothing major, but just enough to suck all my energy and allow me the luxury of saying I was sick.  My house has suffered.  With one husband, four kids, two dogs (and a partridge in a pear tree) the house needs attention.  Every. Day.

My father-in-law will be in town tomorrow to play a round of golf with my husband.  There's a strong chance he will stay the night with us.  While he most likely won't notice or even mind that our house is a little out of sorts, I know it is.  Time to get out the vacuum and bring some semblance of order to our humble abode.

So, thank you Rachel for reminding me that although vacuuming sucks, it does make for a nicer looking and better feeling house.


  1. Those little reminders really are helpful. I love a freshly vacuumed room, but tend not to notice the floor needing attention until I hear crunching...on carpeted floors! Well, maybe not that bad.

    Enjoy your time with your FIL!

  2. Indeed, enjoy your time! But I hear you, I always *know* when things aren't just right. Sorry you've been sick! Praying it's better now.

  3. Diane and Carey, thank you for your sweet comments. :) The house is successfully vacuumed, although at the expense of my toes! The sinus infection is on its way out. :)

    It's shaping up to be a very good day!

  4. I also have chronic sinus problems...sure does drain the energy out of you. I should have vacuumed today...but unfortunately I didn't...hopefully hubby will help me with it is an exhausting job! Have a good weekend!

  5. I know the feeling about the vacuuming chore. I'm terribly sorry you may have inherited that from your mother. Thankfully, your father doesn't mind doing this task. I love him for that, among many other of his domestic traits. You are doing a great job so keep up the good work. I feel your pain also on the sinus problems. Unfortunately, you did inherit that from my side of the family. I love you and will pray that you continue to keep your head above water. Mom

  6. Thanks, Mama. All is well, or at least better. My poor head just doesn't know what to make of these crazy temps with the flowers and trees blooming in February. :)
