Spring Fever

I have spent the past 4 days Spring cleaning our apartment.
I've been meaning to do this for weeks, because a few hundred dust bunnies that were taking up residence under our bed had to be evicted!

I packed away the Winter and Fall clothes to make way for all our Summer ensembles. I mopped, swept, moved furniture, threw out magazines and filled a huge cardboard box with books to be donated to our local library.
It feels good. I might be becoming a little neat freak, but even my husband notices a breezy difference in our humble Manhattan abode..

There is something to be said for knowing where all your stuff is.
Now if I could just sort through all of our important documents and get our filing cabinets in order, I'd be having the perfect week!

Speaking of weeks.............................
I have 2 weeks left at work. I feel like the end can't come soon enough. I am going to miss the kids, but let me tell you, I miss having and taking care of my own life. Finally, I am going to move onto something new. It is definitely a time for change. I look forward to rediscovering the art of only being emotionally responsible for my own family.

Now lets just see how long it lasts!

My husband and I became parents at 3 a.m. this morning!

Parents to 2 gorgeous, but very horny squirrels. They have turned the old, leaf-filled bucket on the balcony (fire escape) outside our bedroom window into a brothel (nest).
We are woken up by their moans (quacks) and put to sleep by their scratching.

We love them.
We have named them Duck(because of her quacking) and Kanga(because of his stance).

We think we might be sleep-deprived grandparents before we are ready.

Monday night at my house

My husband is working the late shift tonight which means he will only be home after midnight. I hate the evenings when he isn't here to share my drama with me.

I am pacing the hardwood floors in our apartment, trying to broil a steak and some vegetables, while I wait for the 2 hour conclusion of Greys Anatomy.

My apartment is in desperate need of a spring cleaning, but I am too preoccupied with the time to care. In 45 minutes we will finally know how the characters on Greys Anatomy will end their season. Is Izzy going to kill the love of her life. Is Derek going to leave his wife for Meredith? If he does, will Meredith give him the finger? How did Chris O'Donnell age so well?

I am going to check on my dinner and wait.
and wait....

and wait..............

and wait!
