It WILL get you on the Blog

Last night, the Dude’s aunt joined us for dinner. And, I actually managed to make dinner. Someone tell me I’m a Rockstar.

After dinner, she quickly scurried around and began clearing the dishes and cleaning up. She asked me what I wanted in the dishwasher and what I wanted washed by hand.

I said, “You don’t have to do any of those dishes”.

She replied, “Yes I do. I want to. If it will get me onto the blog, I will do it”.

At first I was confused by what she meant.

Then I remembered the Thankful Thursday post that I wrote last week in which I wrote the following:

“I am thankful for my family and friend ands the amazing support they have been to me since Eva was born. Just this week alone, my friend Crystal came over to help with Eva so I could get some housework done, my mom came to go shopping with me, the Dude's aunt brought dinner, cleaned up my kitchen and stayed for the evening when she knew he had to work late, and my sister sent me an e-mail to encourage me when I was down. That is just the start”

So, yes, Auntie Marcia, I promise anytime you want to come to my house, do my dishes and clean up my kitchen, you will get onto the blog.

Do you vacuum, mop and scrub toilets, too?

That is hilarious! I wish my family was more supportive of being on my blog! I usually just have to tell them, "Sorry, you let me take pictures of you, you go on the blog!" haha.

And yes, you ARE a rockstar!

Well, tell your aunt that if she's willing to travel down here and clean and cook, I'll put her on my blog, too!;)

How funny!! I love when my family is excited about my blog! My uncle always wants on it too, maybe I should suggest if he does my dishes he will, ha ha.

Marcia said...

NO, I do not vacuum, mop and scrub toilets, but thanks sooo much for asking. Auntie M

I knew right away you were talking about Marcia! Hum... now if I can get her on my blog. Can you send her to Idaho to do my dishes! :)

Kristin said...

I will start a blog just for her if she would come here to clean up :-)

Abbie said...

HA! That is awesome. I would write about my family all the time if they would do that kind of stuff for me!
My husband's family does ask all the time if pictures of them from family functions will be on the blog "will I make the blog?". They don't get the blogging world, so I kind of think they are mocking me!
