A little cleaner at least

Well, I can't say that I have had anymore energy today. Or that I cared anymore about the house. But I did get up and clean anyway. The floor got swept, and I attempted to vacumm. Unfortunately the vacumm wasn't sucking anything in. I tried the hose, that worked fine. SO I took off the cover, the spinner brush, and another cover and tried to clean out the Mark hair from his last haircut. And the powder he used to dry the water off the boys floor. And a hundred other assorted things that got caught in the intake. I thought I got it all. Nope.... So I had to take the hose off and pull things out that way. But I finally got it working, I didn't break anything, and I didn't lose any screws. So the floor got vacummed after all.

I also got a small break today. When Mark came home I took off with Nathan to the store. Oren got time with Daddy yesterday, so today was Nathan's time alone with a parent. I restocked some stuff, and bought some stuff for Oren's party this weekend. I am having lots of family for lunch, so I got LOTS of hotdogs. I think six packages ought to be enough. For this weekend and a couple lunches afterward too. Bun length of course.

My family was so excited for dinner. I didn't get home until almost 7:00, so I grabbed a take-and-bake pizza from the store. Papa Murphy's is better, you truly get what you pay for.

All in all, a slightly more productive, if not exciting day. At least I am actually a little tired today. :-)

Glad your day went a little better, and it's always nice to have that one on one time with one of the kids. Pat yourself on the back for all you got done today! I'm with you on the pizza thing....

Well, the hotdogs came with a coupon, so I bought some for the party, and lots more for us later. I'm a little nervous, I have never done a treasure map cake before. But, I am most excited to have so many family and friends here to have lunch and chat!

I used to go to the store in the middle of the night just to be alone for a while. Any break will do! I rely on Mike to fix my vacuum. I am not mechanical in the least bit. Great job!

Ooh, I love the Papa Murphy's gourmet vegetarian pizza - soooo good!

I'm hoping we're planning on coming on Saturday. I've talked to Jeff about it, and he kind of balked at driving that far because the car's been overheating and gas is pricey. But I'm fairly sure I'm going to insist that we come anyway. ;)
