A LONG Day, Cleaning, Sickness, Snow

Whew!!! The ole body has had a l-o-n-g day! I decided I would tackle my boys' rooms today . . . So, I put on my HAZMAT suit (hazardous materials jumpsuit) and dug in! Well, I guess I should fess up . . . I didn't quite go that far, but I certainly could have.

We try to teach each of our children responsibility and one responsibility is keeping their bedrooms clean and tidy. I try to let them take care of things, but when the dust bunnies are marching down the stairs IT IS TIME Mamma stepped in. So, that is exactly what I did! I worked on four little boys' bedrooms ~~~ three bedrooms in all as two share a room. I tidied closets, dresser drawers, clothing shelves. I wiped baseboards, closet & entry doors. Book shelves were tidied and purged. Floors were dust mopped and then mopped ~ by this time, my little helpers were home and I put them to work. They really didn't mind ~~~ because, I bribed them with Legos! Hey, a Mom has to do what a Mom has to do! I also was able to get the upstairs hall cleaned.

I have a mountain of laundry now, changing bed linens and finding dirty & clean clothing waded up and shoved in every available hidden space tend to add up. Also, I didn't do laundry yesterday . . .

I finished upstairs with what I had intended to do . . . all that is left upstairs to do . . . the master bedroom, bath and a.m. kitchen/sitting room.

Katelyn and I took care of adding some Christmas tree ornaments to our front yard containers this morning . . . Baby it is COLD out there!

My desk is tidy AND the bills are paid.

I made eggs for my furry babes. I had an egg & spinach omelet. Randy fixed dinner for himself and the boys. Katelyn is at school for the afternoon and evening.

Tomorrow I plan to head in to work and then visit Uncle S. I also plan to have my nails done before picking the boys up from school.

Saturday we plan to search high and low for the PERFECT Christmas tree! I can't wait!!! Yes, the camera lens will be busy!

Randy has had a terrible cold . . . today he headed for the doctor. Terrible virus or pneumonia ~ chest xrays at the hospital. Medicine prescribed . . . xray results in 24 hours. Nice???? NOT!!!

The weather peeps are predicting a bit of snow for us tonight and tomorrow . . . could get up to an inch . . . or not, who knows?

The boys are upstairs and have had their baths . . . it is time for them to head to bed. Quietness will engulf the house soon. It is time for me to get a fire going in the fireplace, grab my ipad, blanket and furry babes . . . a little down time for me. Yippee!
