While I had high hopes when writing last Thursday's
We took a trip to the city Saturday evening and spent some time with some of the liveliest people we know. And then it was Sunday...
Generally Sunday is a day of rest, but I couldn't resist the urge to clean! John is definitely the neater one out of the two of us, so this was a refreshing change for him. Yes, I usually go on a mini cleaning binge when we're expecting company, but this was more than that. We're going to have a new person living with us!

So I started evicting the clutter from our house. Empty boxes were recycled. Old food and expired sunscreen were thrown in the trash. Documents were shredded. A donation box was filled for Goodwill.
And it felt GOOD!
Babies don't need a lot of stuff to survive, but the stuff accumulates anyways. I figured we might as well start making room for said stuff.
Yes, there's more to do, but I feel like we're making good progress. We also attended a seminar at our parish about what we can do as parents to lead our children toward a vibrant faith and balanced life. Which is much more important than having the perfectly pretty nursery.
