I'll take the physical challenge!

Any one remember what my title is from?

To me, Mondays are days for recovering over how lazy and and distracted from chores one has been over the weekend. I'm trying to gain some momentum this morning. But my bleeping wisdom tooth is the thorn in my side. I am teething and the whole left side of my face is tender. I'm pretty sure this bad boy needs to be yanked, plucked, pulled, EXTRACTED from my mouth. Should be fun. I wish my own conspiracy theory (about how pulling wisdom teeth are just a ploy for dentists to make money) came through for me. But pain talks. Take the buggars out!!

But back to the housekeeping: I feel discouraged. As soon as one room is acceptable, another is in shambles - kid crud like puzzle pieces everywhere, dust, crumbs, dirt, clutter, yuck. It's best to keep up high spirits with these sorts of things or else they can really get you down. Whew. OK, now that I had my internet pity party and allowed my ibuprofen to kick in, let me spring to action. Gotta make a plan! Take a vacation from procrastination!!

Step by step. Day by day. By day...

First priority.
Kitchen - unload diswasher, tidy, wipe, sweep, load dishwasher, done.

Front room - rally kids to pick up after themselves for the bazillionth time. quick tidy and fluff of pillows and done.

Bedroom 1 - wash my sheets, thanks little baby for leaking last night. tidy. done.

Bedroom 2 - clean up clean up, everybody everywhere! clean up clean up, everybody do your share!!

bathroom - wipedown and done!

laundry - a couple of loads today.

for the kids - help make bread with mommy. hannah read james a story. outside time today since the weather is lovely. lots of grace and hugs for james today since he's the last of us to get this annoying cold we've all had. poor little basketcase.

dinner - its a pot o beans in the crock. rice to be cooked later.

OK! Here I go! It's gonna be a good day, help me Lord!

DING DING DING! That's correct, Mimi! :)

The name of the show was Double Dare. It was the one the kids regularly got slimed with the green goop. It looked so fun!

I hope your day went well!!

I can feel your pain- literally.. I have two wisdom teeth coming in and I am certain that they need to be pulled, but I am avoiding it until my baby boy starts eating "real" food. I don't want to mess up my milk when it is his only source of food.

I hope your tooth feels better and that you were able to get a lot done.

oh no, michelle!

i found out my tooth is not impacted or anything and is not infected so that is good. i'm going to wait it out too for a little longer because they want me to go under general anesthesia which means i wouldn't be able to nurse phil for 6 hours after. it's actually feeling a little better today, thank God.
