Here's a video I made of my progress, and ultimately clean office. (If you know what this song is from, then you are the #1 coolest person visiting my blog today. If you don't know what it's from, you are only the #2 coolest person visiting my blog today.)
Here's Homer, helping/getting in the way.
(That's frosting on his face--he helped himself to a tub of it while I was distracted.)
What a relief to get that done! It only took me about 2 1/2 hours. (See, Amy, you can have a clutter-free office like me, and it will only take you a week since your office is the size of a small house). Then I scrambled to study for my Astronomy test. Below is a picture Homer snapped of me studying/messing around on You Tube. That's Gus next to me, learning about Oblers' Paradox/dogs on skateboards. (I look annoyed because a two-year-old has my camera).
A few hours later, I was ready to take my test (it's an online class, so I have timed tests on the computer). I got 100% (You Tube is very informational). Then I jumped in the shower, and looked fabulous just in time for Katie to arrive. We were going to prepare some of the food for our Thanksgiving feast Wednesday night (Erin couldn't join us because she had to prepare her house for company, and, as you probably know, Becky is out of town). Now, if you know me, you know that 1) I am a bad cook, 2) I hate cooking, 3) I get grossed out easily if food isn't prepared in a clean manor. However, 1) I had Katie (and Sara) to guide me along, 2) I was actually excited to cook my very first Thanksgiving dinner, 3) I insisted that Katie and I wear hairnets (shower caps, actually) and gloves. Tom, who shares my food sanitation apprehensions, will appreciate the lengths we went to to keep everything sanitary. We took pictures, and I put it in a little video (so my blog wouldn't be too long).
