as far as our house goes...this is about as clean as it gets...without paying someone else to do it.
and it is this way because everyone pitched in.
the kids cleaned their rooms before bed.
we cleaned till late last night...it had to be done...it was just gross.
so this morning when i forced them to clean again they all went nuts.
(the kids..craig was at work)
there was lots of stomping, door slamming, crying....wailing...
give me a break.
i made them do it anyway.
i was also getting very crabby from them being this way.
i had just cleaned my kitchen and didn't want them in there
so i shouted "whenever that room is clean we can have a picnic!"
"PICNIC? it's raining"
"an inside picnic...so hurry up!"
they were cleaning fast and actually did a good job.
then we had a picnic in the foyer.
it's a proven fact...you can't stay crabby at a picnic.
in the afternoon the family arrived!
always so good to see everyone.
i am glad they are here.
