    I THOUGHT I’d get my house cleaned today, but I decided to try flying a kite and playing Scooby Doo computer games with my daughter instead. She’s on Spring Break this week and is grieving over the solo time and attention she is missing since her baby brother was born.

    Good job on your tackling!

    visiting from 5 minutes for mom!

    Aw man, I just hate it when I have to clean the house – I am the laziest of lazy people when it comes to that. But I might add when I have eventually done a mammoth task like that (lol) it really makes one feel GOOD!

    Hope you are well, sorry for being so “quiet”!!

    Yep, Saturdays are my DAY OFF! I will not do a thing on that day and my house can get sloppy (I have two small boys, remember?) Anyhoo, it doesn’t bother me all too much.

  14. Elise

    Nice work! I don’t need to see before pictures to know you’ve worked hard! 🙂
    In answer to your question at my place (I’m sorry it took me so long!), Eliana is 16 months old. My delight. Thank you for the compliment!
