Too long...

Ok, so obviously, it’s been too long. I guess sometimes I get so caught up in reading everyone else’s blog, I forget to update my own! Not that I’ve had much to say lately anyways. There’s not much new going on around the Abernathy household. Chase got a new job at First Bank, so we’re super excited about that! He’s still going to keep his current job, but just cutting back on the hours, which I’m sure will make him happier.

My whole baking thing has been a little slow…actually, it’s been really slow. I’ve been trying to get a routine down to keep my house a little more tidy, but more on that later. As a result of my newfound quest for cleanness, I have lost the desire to shower my kitchen in flour, powdered sugar, and cookie crumbs…Not that I don’t want to, it just I don’t want to clean it up. I promise, I found evidence of cookies in my kitchen for 2 weeks after I made them. Not to mention the bag full of crushed cookies that I found in the bottom of my purse on Sunday. Apparently once cookies are crumbled they grow razor edges that can cut through Ziploc bags and freely disperse into your purse, betcha didn’t know that!

Anyways, I will be the FIRST to admit that I’m not a clean-freak. I am messy. Very messy and very disorganized. So I’ve been trying to get a laundry system going, such as assigning certain hampers to certain rooms, cleaning out the sink EVERY night, cleaning off the bathroom counter every night, etc. That may be the “normal” for a lot of folks, but NOT me. Get this. I did laundry this weekend. Lots of laundry. And you know what happened?

I ran out of hangers.

In the 21 ½ months that Chase & I have been married, we’ve never run out of hangers. I actually thought we had too many hangers. Nope, apparently those 3 clothes hampers that are overflowing like a volcano come in handy if you don’t’ have enough hangers. You never even notice!

So here are your helpful tips for this week: Don’t leave cookies in your purse, it will save you from vacuuming out your purse. And it’s okay if you have a mountainous pile of laundry, it keeps you from making a “what should be a 5 minute trip to Walmart, but turns into a 30 minute trip because they only have 4 stinking registers open” for some hangers.

Lauren? Messy? No way! lol...your house really wasn't that bad when I was over. Atleast you know here everything is! And I know exactly what you mean about waiting in line forever at Wal-mart. I never understand why all the other registers are closed when there are so many people waiting in line. I have learned though, NEVER to go on a Sunday...you might as well prepare yourself to be there all day if you do!
