Gettin' Bizzy wit it

Thursday to Sunday has been one big, fat blur.

I was up early Thursday morning because I agreed to help my aunt clean a few houses. Oh my goodness. I know that she did more work than I did, but seriously people, cleaning eight bathrooms was nothing to sneeze at (a combo of dog and cat hair, yes, sneeze-worthy).

That's right, I cleaned 8 bathrooms...and spiffed up three kitchens. When I got home, I was zonked. I had inhaled so many cleaning agents that I had a headache. My dogs were yapping (that is, my feet were hurting, for those of you who live up North and may have never heard that expression, hee) and I just about passed out in bed...before hubs was home from work...which means the kids were...ahem...little angels destroying the house. Ah well.

Sweet, dear friends of ours lost their precious mother/mother-in-law last Wednesday. So Friday, I made a few dishes for the family's meal before the funeral. Once I got those to the church, I ran back home, got cleaned up, took the kids to a friend's house (thanks, Cindy), and attended the funeral. I love that wonderful family.

After the funeral, I picked up the kids and had just a little time before we needed to head out for a birthday party. A blue-themed birthday party. We all wore blue clothes...and Ella and I even painted our toenails blue. I got tickled every time I saw my toes...blue is just not my usual! Great party!

After that great party, the kids went straight to bed when we got home.

But that wasn't the end of the fun.

What do we have here??



Hmmm....

You were one BUSY Momma!

A color themed birthday party sounds soo much fun! I think I might have to do that for Abby's 5th Birthday! IN MEMPHIS! WHOOP!

What the heck happened to the carpet?! Do tell!

Dude! You can clean my bathrooms too! I have two and a little one upstairs that doesn't even get used.
Gee, I wonder why your carpet is coming off the floor...
Where are the after pics?
Saving that for WW?

You were busy....but once those dogs stop barking, I've got 3 bathrooms that could use a good once over...I'm just saying.;)

And I bet I know what that last picture is, but I won't say anything.;)

(Make the pizza! Q-tip, Q-tip, throw it away!);)

when my dogs are yapping, there is usually jumping and face licking involved, but to each his own... liked the irony of the kids destroying YOUR house when you had worked so hard on someone else's. I would love to tell you that someday they will appreciate all of your hard work... they won't. teehee

Chris said...

ps. if that were MY house, I would say that the dogs were tearing up the carpet. not sure whose to blame at yours:)

8 bathrooms!

You get the princess of the potty award because I can barely choke down doing my own let alone 8 others!

Sniz said...

Hmmmm...there are lots of places in our house that look like that? But no one that lives here ever knows how they came to be that way. Things that make you go hmmm indeed!

Sounds very similar to our last 2 weeks, except that I was busy doing other things than cleaning. :) Ooo, new carpet--I think that, last night, I convinced my husband that since the couch is for sale on the front lawn maybe we could go ahead and replace our horrible, horrible carpet with laminate.

O.K. so I am dying to know what's up with the carpet. Talk about a cliffhanger. Nice new look on the blog.

Elaine A. said...

First off, you have a great new look here missy. I almost didn't recognize the place! HA!

And yeah... what's up with the carpet there? Hmmm...

Now, what's up with that carpet?? Is someone checking to see if there's hardwood under there?
