a clean house...(and NOT ME Monday)

...is a happy house.
(it happens some times, i swear)




And some NOT ME MONDAY things...I "did not" do the last few days:

i did NOT eat a whole container of chocolate eclairs in two days.
i did NOT use the soapy bubbles in the kids bath last night to wash them.
i did NOT ditch my kids for 4 hours to go shopping with my SIL Meg.
i did NOT almost pee my pants when hubby called me from his new job and his new office today.
i did NOT sit in bed and ditch my kids a second time to watch Baby Momma with said SIL.

join the fun...check it out.  everybody's doing it!

A clean house is a happy house. But I would be happier if it would STAY clean- for at least a day

Oh you have such a beautiful home. Yup, when my apartment is a messy chaos, my life seems that much more disorganized :)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

If only the clean house would stay that way we'd be even happier! Your house is so cute!
that's the truth even when we tell ourselves otherwise...clean homes make us happy!

I wish I had clean house days like this! Ah not in my house! I'm best friends with the dust bunnies now and maybe for a long time! lol! I like those yarn balls on your table- got me reminded of my yarn ball earrings! hmm...is it a sign? maybe I should re-list and create more of that earrings! Thanks!!!

Love the pics!
Those eclairs are definitely dangerous and addictive. They are so small you convince yourself it isn't so bad.
Jen said…
good for you cleaning the house. I should take pictures when I clean so that I can remember it 5 seconds later when it becomes dirty again.
Karen said…
Sounds like you did NOT have a great day all around. You go, girl! And look at your beautifully clean home. *sigh*

A clean house alleviates so much stress, doesn't it?
Stacey said…
Man - you are lucky...I can't wait to see Baby Momma. In fact, that is what I dressed up as for a Halloween party this weekend...a Baby Mama!

Your daughters are beautiful.

I did not eat pears dipped in caramel.

I did not eat a whopper and onion rings that my husband just brought me home, even though I had already eaten dinner.
I love the rarity that is a clean house! It makes me feel so good, for that brief moment in time. lol
ayamlin said…

Oh, I'm jealous of you!
I don't have the garden.
I wanna drink a tea at your garden!

Mini Eclairs.....

Those evil little buggers call my name every time I'm in Sam's Club. They sing their sweet little Bavarian Cream song and I have to go "LALALALALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!" whenever I get near the back of the store. Little chocolate covered sluts...

Boy you get to ditch your kids a lot! Can you throw me some of that?! :-)

So, it's been a while since i posted...years, in fact.  I stumbled upon to an old post and thought, I need to write more.  So here we are now...
My family looks completely different and times are different, but we are still just the same people.  We've added one...P got married 2 years ago and now we have A.  I will talk more about that later.  But isn't our pic soooo cute?  For now, life is crazy and wild and sometimes completely unpredictable, but we are still praying and playing together.  Ryan and I are on our 21st year of marriage (woot woot), and the kids are well, old!  P is 25 and happily married to A, and they are celebrating 2 years next month.   B is a junior,  has a job and is blowing our minds with all she is achieving in this world, and she's one of the funniest kids on the planet.  She's grown an amazing amount in all her therapies and in life in general...she's an advocate for all who struggle, and autism does not define her...she defines herself.…

one lucky chick

i have been super blessed with a man who not only loves and adores me, but thinks his daughters are all queens deserving of the most love a daddy can give.  in this family, and with other special needs families, there are days that make being fully engaged, well, let's just say difficult.

poop, for instance...it's still an issue in our house.  with kids 20, 12, 10, and 7, you would think that we were well past the poop problems, but we are not.  ASD (autism spectrum disorder) is a beast when it comes to poop.

and here's a little insight on me...i'm a gagger, meaning the harsh smell of poop or puke makes be puke.  but the amazing hot hubs, he's a beast on the clean up.  poop on the walls...he scrubs it.  poop pasted on the toilet...he cleans it up.  poop on the shower curtain...he washes it.  and he does it without being nasty.  (he doesn't like it...but he does it.)

so, when people see our fam and think it's all amazingly perfect and cute, remember...we ar…

findings

as we walked the last morning on the beach, we found some very interesting things.  i know there are some southern folks that will read this, so tell me...what in the world is this? we call it whale poop.  i know...i'm not creative, but when the kiddos asked, it was all i could think of.
then there's the neon orange spitting pod thingy...i don't even know what to say about it. and this another shot...the pre-goo pic of the whole pod.
the last 2 days on the beach, there was a storm at sea that we never got on land, but tons of jelly fish washed up to shore.  the kids were fascinated by the size of them.  they were as big as 16 inches in diameter...i mean, huge!
we just had fun...walking slowly and taking the beach in one last time before heading back. paige found a sand dollar in the end...we were just together.  we've been back in reality for a week now and i think we have spent no more than 1 hour a night with all 6 of us together...i mean, if you count p's softball game…
