The kids get out of school today and I have, yet again, wasted one hundred and eighty days of possible toy and general kid crap recon!  What was I thinking?  I have the XL contractor sized black garbage bags, and lord knows we have the toys and kid crap.  Why didn’t I get rid of it while they were in school?   In less than six hours they’re going to bring even more crap home from school!  And then for the next 10 weeks, they’re going to be up in my business if they catch me with a big black garbage bag.

Oh well, no sense dwelling on it now.  Their last day is my last day too.  I’m certainly not spending  the last free time I have doing a toy recon.  Plus, since they’ll be home now, maybe they can start picking up their own crap!  I think I’ll start the chore “grab bag” here this summer.  But not until the second day, I don’t want them to wish they were still in school! 


I’m so tired I can barely keep my eyes open, and when they are open they’re burning.  It’s 5:30 in the morning and I’m up because I stupidly decided to invited the little guy’s entire class over after school today for a pizza party.  The only reason it’s stupid is because I have not been home all weekend!  I ran to the market last night for a few things, but am up early to clean this house like it’s 1997 (pre-kids), prepare beautiful food for the adults and magically my make my yard look like I take care of it.  All in 6 hours, with 3 school drop offs and one school pick-up mixed in there.  Did I mention that somehow all of the little guy’s toys, and I mean ALL of them have ended up in the dining room?  So unless I can fit a run to Home Depot for a door on the kitchen so no one can see the massive toy pile, I’ve gotta tackle that.   And, maybe, just maybe, fit in a shower. 

Not sure I’ll pull it all off.  Actually, now that I’ve decided to blog instead of clean, the odds are stacking against me.  And, seriously, because who would want to make this crap up –  the dog just puked!  I think I’ll go and get a coffee while everyone’s still asleep and try again in a little while…
