I am going to be an Auntie! Yay! My sister and her husband are expecting their first child in May. This will be the first baby for our family and everyone is real excited. I found out when my mom and sis were here for a visit in the beginning of October but had to keep things hush hush until my sis had a chance to tell everyone.
It's still too early to tell whether it will be a boy or girl but once I do, the gifts will be bought like crazy!
My mom seems to be recovering pretty well from her surgery. She is walking under her own steam now-no cane anymore-and is able to do a lot of little things on her own. Still a good deal of pain and she can't bend at all but she is in great spirits and she should be back to her old self in no time.
As for me, yesterday was a busy day of cleaning and reorganizing. I tackled the kitchen, cleaned the floors, cleaned the deck area and put away the floaty toys for the "winter", and tore apart the linen and spare room closets to clean and reorganize them. Today, I just have to do laundry and clean the bathrooms and then I will be satisfied. It's funny-sometimes the weekends I spend busy at home are just has fun as those with activities planned. I think it's the clean freak in me. I love the feeling of a clean and organized house. Even if it only lasts for a day or so.
