Thursday fluff

If I thought my house was a disaster before I had all 3 home for school, I was waaaaay off the mark. Between struggling to figure out a way to encourage Evan to just do the simple work I want him to review (found the way: Bribe him with Gum. I am a Geeeeenius!), knocking out a few articles for various other blogs (not always my best. Sigh...) and the addition of soccer into the routine, my poor home has been even more neglected than before.

The floors aren't just a bit sticky: they now crunch.

The laundry isn't a bit behind: it's flowing down the stairs.

The dishes are the lucky ones. I HAVE to wash them if we want to eat. Still, they are soaking in water more than they are sparkling clean.

Urgh.

And my posts are all a bit of fluffy fluff stuff. Wait a sec. The cinnamon rolls are beeping....

YUM.

Yes. This is my post. I apologize. I promise to return eventually with something thought-provoking...

Tomorrow's the music giveaway! Still lots of chances to win!

You know I read once that it doesn't matter if the floors are clean or if the laundry is done, all that matters if spending time with your kids. Or that's my story and I'm sticking to it. :)

My four year old can be bribed to do just about anything for gum. Both of my girls will move the moon for a slurpee from 7-11.

I keep looking around here, suspicious that you moved in while we weren't looking. If you can borrow a dog from someone it totally solves that crunchy floor problem.

And if the laundry is allowed to compost for long enough, the heat almost cleans the stuff in the middle of the pile. Not that I know about slack housekeeping or anything.

My house is a mess too. Who has time to clean when there are cinnamon rolls to eat!!!!

Ugh, housework. If I could just have a live in housekeeper, life would be perfect.

Don't worry you will find your grove.

Hey, if you're making cinnamon rolls, you are doing just fine in my book!

I can so relate to the crunchy floors. Ugh! But cinnamon rolls sound like a great thing.

Jeni said...

Sounds like you have a lot on your plate, the crunchy floors can wait:)

I love that your dishes are soaking in water -- that's always my excuse too -- I have to let the grime soak off of them before I can wash them!!!

Marie said...

hey, at least YOU'RE posting, that's ahead of me!!

I hope the cinnamon rolls made everything a little better =)

If it makes you feel better, my laundry is out of hand as well! And I have no children old enough to bribe...sigh...

I love this post. It makes me feel better because I just walked across the kitchen and my slipper got stuck in who knows what! I seem to have a lot of friends that have those houses that are always sparkly clean. Ugh. I need new friends.
