Accomplishment... And Other Sicknesses

Yesterday I ran some errands in the morning and then decided to relax on the couch "for a minute or two".  I'm not sure what happened next but my kids were all laying down trying to catch up on some Z's and I had rented season 1 of Reba.  Please don't judge me, that's a good show!  Plus it was only disks 2 and 3...

Anyway, I meant to watch "an episode or two" before cleaning up my pig pen of a house and next thing I know it's 6pm, I finished the whole season, and my kids had trashed my house even more.  CRAP!  I felt so guilty that I had wasted the day so I cranked up the Taylor Swift, popped in a frozen pizza and got cleaning.  The first thing to go was the Halloween decorations.  Technically all I did was take them down and make a pile to put under my house, but progress is progress.  Little Man put all the shoes on the shelves and hung up all the winter gear so my entryway looked great!

I even went above and beyond and vacuumed the real spiderwebs that had accumulated above the fake spiderweb.  While I had the vacuum out I remembered that my ceiling fan really needed a dusting, so I vacuumed that too.  I was already standing on the counter, singing at the top of my lungs like an idiot, so I thought it would be a good time to suck up all that dust on top of my cabinets.  My house was coming along, and the kids and I had fun doing it!

The problem is that today I've been sitting on my butt since I actually did something yesterday.  I slept in and my kids had taken down a box of 8 Pop-Tarts before 8 am and left the wrappers and crumbs everywhere.  8 freaking Pop-Tarts for 3 little kids!  Sitting around would be okay if I had done dishes or laundry yesterday, but I didn't.  We have no clean towels, Little Man has been wearing Sweetie Pie's socks all weekend, and the kids are using my Grandma's breakable plates because we've used all the plastic.  Oh, and since I used the pizza yesterday I have no plan for dinner.

The goal for the rest of the day is to catch up a little so we at least have clean towels, socks and plates for tomorrow.  Bonus points for being able to see the kids' floors before bedtime ;)

Sometimes singing at the top of your lungs goes a long way :)

Since you're well rested, you probably have lots of energy to still do those laundry and finish the cleaning.
