I haven't wanted to post about this on here, because that would make it seem real, and then if plans fell through I would be devastated. But the date fast approaches, well, actually now we have a "tentative ETA" for his units arrival home. Some time around the 15th of August. A short 3 weeks away. 3, three, tres, drei, THREE! weeks.
And I have so much to do... so much. There are so many projects I planned to have done by the time he got home. Now I have some things I NEED to get done before I can even start on those other things.
My sprinklers were not working, but I didn't worry about it, then I noticed a geyser of water in the backyard. Penelope had chewed on one of the ones that still worked and now it spouts water like a desert whale. Fun times. I have to fix that ASAP, because none of my plants are getting watered because I turned the drip system off.
I know, it shouldn't matter if everything is spotless clean when he gets home. But, it does (to me). It really does. If I clean it then I will be able to enjoy him at home instead of stressing about needing to clean it. I got the name of a maid service that is fairly affordable, if "crunch time" comes and I still don't have it all done. I have a carpet cleaner coming the 13th of August to clean the carpets in only a few of the rooms (where the puppy had accidents while house training.) I have a carpet cleaner, but the carpet needs some serious cleaning, and they will move the sectional and clean under that, too. I think it will be worth having them clean the stairs, too.
For now, I am trying to stay focused on the now, and not worry about what is coming. But I am so excited for him to be home. YAY!
