It's just a number

Wow! Wowee wow wow. I just checked back on my blog after over 20 days of not posting. I noticed that there have been 42 views. 42? Really? I know it doesn't seem like a lot, but to me it does! No one even knows about this blog. Well, I guess 42 people do! And some of you have even left comments.... Kinda makes this grouchy mama......less grouchy. Thanks for stopping by and reading my rants.

Hopefully I'll be back to posting soon. Life took a turn for the busy in August. Hopefully now it will slow down a bit.

See why I get overwhelmed?

I was feeling very overwhelmed today with my messy house. Everywhere I looked there was stuff and crap and dirt!

So, I buckled down, for two hours, while The Boy napped, The Girl had some screen time and I folded, put away, sorted, filed, picked up, wiped, organized, and swept. Darn it, I didn't have time to dig out the vacuum! :)

So, while I was making dinner tonight, I gave The Boy some cooked Orzo pasta. (If you're unfamiliar with Orzo, each piece is about twice the size of a grain of rice.) He was busy, happily, for 15-20 minutes, putting the pasta into bowls AND ALL OVER THE FLOOR!!

By the time dinner was served on the dining room table, the pasta was all over my bare feet and tracked all over the house. Argh!

Luckily, The Man came home from his evening meeting while we were still eating dinner. He joined us for dinner and actually helped sweep up the mess in the kitchen before the dual melt down occurred. (Yes, both children, at top volume.....story for another post.)

So, my house remains relatively "clean" tonight. Well, "clean" enough that I won't be overwhelmed tomorrow and will actually enjoy a family morning bike ride, instead of thinking of all of the other things I should be doing.

Sleepovers: my new best friend

The Girl is having a play date with a friend.....leading to a sleepover. This is the best thing ever. I have been getting so much done this afternoon (read: spending too much time online, too little time with laundry...)! The girls are off playing "baby" and The Boy is napping.

Woo Hoo!! Time for me to do WHATEVER I WANT.

This is pure sweetness.

Of course, tonight, when I put a 1 year old and two 5 year olds to bed.....with no help from a hubby who has a late meeting.....I may have to post again.....with a gripe....

But, for now, I'm LOVING it!
