The lengths a girl will go to....

not to mop. Yep, it's the dreaded mopping Thursday. So instead of mopping this morning I cleaned out the hall closet, washed the upstairs walls (most of them--didn't make it into the bedrooms), cleaned the boys' bedroom, cleaned the kitchen windows, cleaned the outside doors and made a vow to myself that I couldn't shower until I had mopped. Weird vow, I know, but it worked and now the floors are mopped. I still haven't showered though...

Making up for lost time (4 posts in one day!)

On any given day this is how you will probably find my youngest--shirtless and vacuuming the rugs. Or he will be dusting, wiping mirrors, carrying laundry or pretty much anything else I ask him to do. He LOVES chores...not sure when this is going to end but certainly going to take advantage of it while it lasts.

The pink is back

Ashley did get her cast put back on last week. She was so pumped that I didn't ever argue too much with the doctor about it. And I figured if we had problems we could always take it off again. Seriously, I hadn't see her this excited since she got her webkinz. We all signed our names and then she took it to school and they all signed it there too. Now it looks like a black cast with a little bit of pink. About another week and a half and this one will hopefully come off and life will be completely back to normal...just in time to officially start her orthodontic work.

You can't make this stuff up....

Out of the mouth of Nathan last week:

"If my feet start talking, I will need to get new feet." Hmmmm...yeah, or join the circus.

"Dad, you have a nice head." Dad's response: "Um, thanks, I think."

Oh, and Nathan has a new friend. His name is "squirrelly" and no one can see him but Nathan. Yep, invisible "friend". Although it's an animal so I'm not really sure if the term friend is appropriate. He comes in handy whenever Nathan wants more gum (his all time favorite treat). "But squirrelly didn't get a piece mom." We haven't "seen" much of squirrelly lately though, so maybe someone got lucky squirrel hunting.

Really? It's been that long?

Okay, I've gotten more than one phone call in the last few days checking on me. I guess I didn't realize it had been that long since I had posted. I'm fine. Been busy. Not sure what I've been doing that has kept me so busy. I'll try to get back to being consistent. (Just so you know, that's typical the excuse I give to why I don't exercise, but this is so much more fun than exercise!)
