It's been a very long recovery for our Mommy after her surgery but she is finally starting to feel like the new woman the doctors said she would feel like. This is good news but there are some drawbacks. One of the bad things is she's going back to work in a week or so and we're very used to having her at home most of the day. But, by far the worst thing about Mommy feeling better, is her sudden maniacal desire to clean! The Ball Guy has been visiting very frequently to do things that she can't (cat litter, vacuuming, reaching high on shelves to get things, etc) and he's been really cool about it. If we're sleeping on a chair that needs to be de-furred, he waits until we wake up. Mommy, on the other hand, is so full of energy lately (more than we've ever seen) that when she wants to do something, she wants to do it NOW, even if we're busy doing something important (like snoozing) in the area she wants to clean! We want the old woman back!
Here are some examples of her crazy behavior:
Samson and I are enjoying a mid-afternoon nap in the hall when suddenly here comes Mommy with the Swiffer!! Run Sammy! We don't mind stuff on the floor, she shouldn't either!
Dust? What dust? I think you need glasses, Mommy!
That isn't cat fur on Cartman's face, he's growing a beard. Now go away and let me sleep.
The window is not dirty...umm there's a fire in the building and that's smoke. Don't worry, I'll keep an eye out and let you know if we have to evacuate. And, by the way, fur on curtains is the latest trend - I read it in Home magazine
It's getting increasingly difficult to fool her but we're going to keep trying.
Have a good weekend!
