Random-like Tuesday

Back at it after a long weekend. Could have used another day--the kids are home today with Grandma.  Interesting planning on the School's part. Teacher inservice day right after a holiday.  Smooth.
On to the random:
  • Scrubbing toilets is rather unsatisfactory.  Most household chores are, but scrubbing the toilet has got to be the worst-no one notices and it just gets dirty again immediately. Even vacuuming shows results for a little while. You can take momentary pleasure in an empty sink and clean kitchen. A shiny toilet just doesn't satisfy the same way.
  • I conquered mount laundry.  Every thing is folded and put away.  I even got the bathroom rugs washed.  Next weekend it's sheets.
  • Vacuuming is more fun after a glass or two of wine.
  • Why, yes this weekend was all about house cleaning, why do you ask?
  • Bruiser is having a party for his birthday this year.  If Nick and I can manage to plan one.  We are long on intention, but short on the planning.  I'm hoping I can get invites out this week.  We are keeping it simple, at home, a few games and cake and ice cream and presents.  They're five, a huge extravaganza is not going to make much of an impression. Bruiser just wants to have his friends over.
  • We took the boys to get pictures taken.  The pictures look great.  When we get the CD, I will share the best of.
  • Thought of the week:
  • Totally Nick and I.  Crazy relatives on both sides, check; quirky habits, check; seen at worst, check; Morning breath, check; covers all the bases.  Love you Nick!
  • A juice diet that appeals:
Have a great week! It is a short one and hopefully busy enough to flash by.


  1. My mom did the laundry this weekend but next, my husband will have to help. It might be a disaster!

  2. Ugh. The toilets are the worst! My least favorite chore EVER but.. That fruit juice.. Yeah, I think I'll join you! Cheers! :D
