Update From Port

Chris just called from Port to tell me that the spicy ketchup we have in our fridge isn’t really that spicy, just very flavorful. He knows this because he was eating the same ketchup on his fries. Yes, it was very important, so important that he had to call me. Actually, he’s done all of his errands and now him and Jean have to entertain themselves for the next four hours while they wait for Mum and Dad’s flight. I think it’s kind of funny that we’ve gotten so used to everything taking so long in Port that we account for it by adding a couple of hours to the trip. In reality things have been taking a bit less time every time we go in. I think we need to re-program a bit.

I’ve been cleaning since about 7:30 this morning. Trust me, out house is not that messy. It does, however, collect dust like grandmas china. I guess that’s what we get for being downhill from the only national highway. It’s seriously gross at times and almost impossible to get cleaned up completely. I still haven’t gotten to the point where I’m just resigned to the fact that it will always be that way. I want a clean house – for more than five seconds! I know this is going to be the last major cleaning before we leave for holidays, and I have the whole day to tackle it, so I’m actually kind of happy. Chris won’t be back until after 6 pm so that’ll give me a couple of hours with no workers etc coming in my house. I may actually be able to enjoy my clean floors for a little while :)

This morning I went to take a bunch of stuff out to the burn pit because I was getting rid of junk! I heard some goats and saw the neighbors two little white ones munching on things in our garden. They’re only about a month old and so cute. I picked up the smallest one and walked him home while his counterpart stood in the garden bleating. He was next. They got a good talking to when they got home!

Okay, back to cleaning!
