primary butterflies

(no subject)

My dad and stepmom are coming into town, so I took today off, to clean. Not exactly the most fun way to spend a day off, but as you've seen, I didn't have any time to clean last week, thanks to the fun known as the duty pager.

I had a couple of weird dreams as I was hitting the snooze bar from 6:30 to 9 am (pathetic, I know); the only one I remember was about Jeff Gordon driving this antique GM car to some hick race, and the spots were all filled up, so he said screw you and went to drive NASCAR. I think my lack of TiVo is taking its toll.

Though, I got a page from one of my co-workers telling me I picked a good day off; There was a huge accident on the way to work and it would have taken me forever to get into work anyway.

Anyway, back to cleaning; I'll probably be posting on and off as the day goes on. Whee!

On guests...

So my dad and step mom are visiting, and I give them my room because it's got the queen, my spare room has a full.

I come upstairs, and not only is half the sink filled with their toiletry, but she's taken half my closet for their clothes!

I mean, when I said, sure you can use the ironing board, I didn't expect the whole closet...

Sigh.
