Sorry I went missing the past few days. I had to host Bunko last night, which entailed a marathon cleaning session all day Monday. Despite the daunting task before me, I tried to stay hydrated and calm; I even managed to institute a sort of relay event, wherein I would spot stray items in our living areas (the entire main floor) and call out a child's name, the name of the object, and the room to which said child should relocate said object.
ALL DAY, I had to do this. I swear, we live like pigs.
|Delicious, if I do say so myself...|
Come to think of it, having been revved up to top speed since my feet hit the floor in the morning, I might have come off as slightly maniacal to my lovely guests. The four Bunkos that I rolled didn't help. Yup, the hostess won. What a fantastic evening.
And my fellow slobs know the best part, right? I woke up this morning to a CLEAN HOUSE, albeit with a kitchen littered with Bunko leftovers. I fed the kids those leftovers all day. Believe me, after yesterday? They earned it. And I sat around in my clean living room, gazing lovingly upon my uncluttered dining room hutch and yelling at the kids if they so much as left a pencil lying around.
They might as well get used to it -- no more Mrs. Nice Guy. I'm not going back to that mess we were living in. At least, not this week...
