I've had to put it up for a few days...

I put my sewing machine up for a few days. Andrew's birthday is this weekend and he will be having a party. So I have spent the day cleaning my kitchen. I guess you could say doing a little bit of spring cleaning. I figure if I deep clean a room a day this week, I should be ready for the party. I sew at my kitchen table so my kitchen is usually a mess. I cleaned everything in the kitchen, windows, oven, cabinets, just everything. I even got down with a scrub brush and cleaned the floor around the edge of the walls and cabinets! It really needed it. I am so tired right now, I can't believe I actually let it get that bad.

Andrew will be 15 on Sunday, so he has 5 or 6 of his friends coming home with him on Friday to stay the weekend. The worst part of the weekend is, Breanna, my 14 yr old stepdaughter, is coming to stay this weekend. Let's just say, that went over like a turd in a punch bowl. Richard is about to die. He is so protective of her and now we will be having that many boys staying. He said "They had better not even look at her" I reminded him that he was once that age too, and he said "EXACTLY!" Honestly, they are all good kids, so I don't worry about anything, I'll just be enjoying watching Richard sweat all weekend!!! Oh, and Richard said she has to sleep in our bedroom too. So this should be an interesting weekend or at least a funny one.

I will drag my machine back out the first of next week, but I have a few things that I will probably work on this weekend. I have some yo-yo's that I could work on or a quilt that I am hand quilting. I really need to get it done, I just don't know if I want to drag it out, it is a little bulky. Oh well, I will find something to work on!

I have to say I've never heard the comment " like a turd in a punch bowl" before but it may just become my favorite phrase.
I know what you mean about cleaning. My sister from Arizona is coming this Friday night and spending the night here. I need to clean and clean big time but instead tonight I took a nap after work.

Funny how a grown man is so afraid of a few 15 and 16 year old boys.... hehehhehe....
They'll be fine and I'm sure they'll be supervised. It's your day too...you did give birth 15 years ago that day.....

Well, this should be an interesting weekend at your house! As the mother of 3 girls who used to be teenagers - I believe those boys will be lookin'!! You must fill us in on Richard's chaperoning. Don't wear yourself out with all the cleaning - I don't think those boys will notice if it is that clean or not -- nor will it be very clean when they leave!

Hope you find time to do a little quilting sometime during the week. I didn't do any this weekend while we were painting and I was very ansy to get my hands on some fabric early this morning.

Wish I could be a little mouse and see what all goes on. Be sure to stock up on plenty of food...you won't be able to fill them up - also doon't worry about the kitchen as they will be interested in the food not if there is dust anywhere.

Have fun...

Is that not a teenage girl's dream, one girl and all those boys, even if one is a step brother! Oh, they will either ignore her completely or they will be tripping all over each other to impress her. What fun! Poor Dad, how come it is ok when it is anyone else but HIS daughter? LOL My poor SIL used to just stand and shake in his shoes when my husband was around. Have a fun weekend....but don't clean anymore. Just think about the mess that many teenagers can make......go sew!
