Cleaning Day

Today is a cleaning day here at our house. Our school has Friday school days about 1-2 times a month, so today we got to stay home. Erin and I got to sleep in finally, after getting up at 6:00 am every morning. Yuck! That was very much needed! We woke up to a really good smell coming from the kitchen. Mom has already started cooking in the crockpot for dinner tonight!

It's yet another chilly Fall weather day. It's been a very brisk and still morning. So far this is what has or is still happening today.

What we have done:
Swept the kitchen and dining room.
Cleaned up and organized the entry way.
Beds are made.
Picked up the bathroom that two teenage girls were rushing through the past 4 mornings.
Started on some homework.
Tried to keep 'S' on track with picking up LEGOS.
Went through a few things in our closet.
 Cleaned out the fish bowl.
Mom is putting yarn extensions in 'T's hair today.
Cleaned the bathrooms.

We've all realized that if we work together for just one hour, that our house can be clean. I do mean clean.

We love having a clean house, and with no school today there are many distractions. So... this sign has been used frequently over the last few weekends: (Taped to our TV -- I did mention we got cable right?)

And finally... If I decide to actually get dressed and ready for the day, I might find time to clean out "The beast". :)
Wishing you all a productive and clean Friday!

Lol! The "beast". Sounds as big as "Monster." He needs a good cleaning too, but it's not on my priority list... yet. I still cannot convince all the kiddos in this house that cleaning is a GOOD thing. Maybe you should come and teach them ;o).

Haha yes the "beast". It's not quite as big as yours, but it is big and as you know gas seems to just run right through it! Haha yeah I never did get to cleaning it. I would love to come! :) We try hard to work together and stay on track.
