Why can't I twitch my nose like Samantha Stevens?

Lately my house has been bothering me, we moved in just over a year ago and it took several months before the house officially became ours. Many of you probably know the whole she-bang drag out issues we had with it so I'm not going to hash it out again. Basically, we weren't sure if we were staying or going. So we never really 100% settled in. Even after living there over a year I still don't feel like it's my house. We haven't painted mainly because it can become costly but we really just have not settled in. We have hung some photos but it's slowly becoming cluttered.

It's driving me nuts. I have decided I am going to just start pitching things left and right to get rid of it. I can't believe how much and how quickly things can accumulate. I'm not the best house keeper but I do try. I also have 3 boys who it doesn't matter how much effort you put into keeping a room clean are going to destroy it in a mere matter of seconds. Heck, just Dane could do the destruction by himself.

But I am starting to feel more at home, like it is ours. It's so strange how emotionally I just have not connected. Even after Bishop was born there this past September, the emotions just aren't there yet.

With that said, I do wish I could twitch my nose and everything does exactly what I want it to. The floor sweeps itself (what the hell were we thinking with no carpet?!), or that the counters were instantly clean. The toilets scrubbed themselves, the laundry wash, dried and put away with two twitches. I think you catch my drift. I would only use it for good, well, maybe. Oh the joy of thoughts about never having to physically do any of that stuff again. I'd be one happy camper.

Who am I kidding though? I'd be lucky to get a sneeze to wash my windows. I am glad that I managed to get a day five written on a real computer instead of my evo. That was a major pain, it's fun in small amounts but when you only have that to connect you to the internet it gets old and fast. Hopefully soon we'll have a new computer to use. Two comps are shot, they would cost the same to buy new to repair them.

Ah, oh well. So happy day five! See you all tomorrow :)

  1. Bless your heart. I so have issues with my house. I was in so much pain in my pg that I couldn't do anything. Then he was here and I had homeschooling, baby, meals, the house went to the wayside. I think I need a magical twitchy nose as well.
