Grown up Daughters...more or less!

For some reason the font seems really small now on Blogger.  I'm squinting as I type this. Changes have been made and I haven't kept up with them...that's what happens, I guess, when you become a part-time blogger...

That happens around the house too - lots of things go on without my knowledge....

The other day I was in the upstairs bathroom washing my hands....I turned to the towel rack to dry my hands and this is what I saw!!

Now, luckily I've encountered this before so I wasn't as startled as I was the first time I encountered a sasquatch in the bathroom!  The first time my face was dripping wet and I had my eyes closed - you can imagine!!

I was hoping that something would happen in my daughter's room without my knowledge - like a major cleanup now that she's DONE SCHOOL FOREVER!!...but no such luck...let's take a little peek shall we?...

EEEEEEEEEK!! Looks like the sasquatch got loose in her room!!  Closing the door once again before it gets out and renders the rest of the house unlivable ...!!

Sigh...this is the same daughter who drives 4 hour round trips on major highways for her job. Who always looks like she just walked off of a page in a fashion magazine and who graduated university and college with top marks. Ok, having just said that I now understand the state of her room!!

The good news is that after a week of snow, freezing rain, sleet, hail and rain, yesterday we finally had a day of  sunshine and mild temperatures and are looking forward to a week of the same! Any day now the leaves are going to burst open on the trees, I just know it! Spring, after many many delays, has finally arrived.

Which reminds me to check my "countdown to summer" counter - only 61 days til I leave for PEI!! I can handle that! Now that some level of sanity has returned to my classroom with the replacement EA fitting in VERY WELL I am free to plan field trips and lots of fun activities to keep everyone focused and happy til the end of this term.  I have my peace of mind back and you can't put a price on that!

And now... I must go fold laundry because it doesn't fold itself!! Rats...


  1. Is that hair?

    You must be really proud of your Kazi! She has done so well.

    Your daughter will likely become a neat freak when she gets her own place - my stepson did :) She seems to have little time for it now-busy busy girl.

  4. Yikes! I'd be very startled at the hair hanging from the towels! Her room looks a lot cleaner than one of my younger sibling's. 59 days now!

  5. What in the world? is that hair extensions? call me startled. Her room reminds me of my best friend, when we were young she had the messiest room I've ever seen, knee deep in clothes. Now she's a mom and has the cleanest house you've ever stepped foot in. there's hope :)

  6. Oh my gosh, Jane, that hair on the towel scared me! ;)! i can not believe it's almost time for your summer in PEI! Time is going way too fast!

  7. This is hilarious...and exactly how my eldest daughter is...they leave the house looking amazing....but leave 'the house' looking like a it was ransacked! :)
