An observation

I love going away on retreat and to the NESCBWI Conference.

I usually love coming home just as much.

My joy on returning home was diminished on discovering an hour and a half's worth of cleaning to be done just to get the kitchen, master bedroom and master bath to an acceptable level of cleanliness/tidiness, however. Especially when they were in decent shape when I left. *heavy sigh*

I believe that everything will look much better after a good night's sleep. Followed by some more thorough cleaning, although I have a handful of items on the calendar. Like a doctor appointment for M, and tai chi for me. And something in the evening. Oh, right. I'm the featured reader at Poetry in the Round at the B&N in Marlton, NJ tomorrow evening!

Tomorrow will also include Chapter 12 of Emma as well as a big ol' NESCBWI-related post and a final retreat update.

I now bid you a good night!

I like to leave the house clean when I leave so that it's quite obvious that any messes I find were not my own; but I wasn't able to do that this trip. We'll see in about 14 hours . . .

I did just that - hence my dismay on finding all the messes that my husband created. (They were all his, of course. Any messes that the kids made were in their own rooms, and that doesn't really affect things.)

Oh honey...
I would have been way less than pleased. What a bummer.

That's just wrong. Where are the cleaning fairies when we need them?!

Tracy's right. You need to get out your wand and say, "Scourgify!"

"Scourgify" didn't seem to work. Woe.
