I honestly did not want to get out of bed this morning.  I tried to sleep in which really is  big joke in a house with four kids and a husband who is out of town.  
Here is just a sampling of what was heard while I was trying to sneak in a few extra minutes:

Chairs dragging.  
"Where's Mom?"  
Front door opening. Front door slamming. 
"Mom can we have Rice Krispie treats for breakfast?" 
"Don't!  You'll drown the hamster! "
"AHHHH! The hamster peed! "  
Hysterical giggling.  More giggling.  Silence.  Too much silence...then "MMMOMMMM!!!!!

I am sure you will agree that these are just the things you want to hear when you are trying to fall asleep.
So, I did what any sane mom would do- I buried my head with blanket and figured the nanny could handle everything when she arrived.
But, then I remembered, I AM THE NANNY. 
So after coffee was made, pop tarts popped, and the mess evaluated I decided to break out my new Mrs. Meyer's Counter Top Spray in Basil and dust off my Judds Greatest Hits CD.  Yes, I do love the Judds.   Saturday morning chores were actually fun.  Sort of.  OK, not really.  But I still love the Judds.

Ok, my loyal readers-How do you two make cleaning fun?


  1. I call the maid service and go out for ice cream. There is no such thing as fun cleaning!!
    I linked to green pickle...cute blog...send her to mine.
    love ya

  2. obtw, I love the Judds too! Momma He's Crazy!!!

  3. "Momma- he's crazy- crazy over me!!!" Now that song is in my head again! I love it!!!!

    You are so funny Chris! Make house cleaning fun? Is that an oxymoron or what?
    Seriously- put on some praise music and dance around the house with the kids while you sort that laundry! You may end up with some pink clothes that were once white-but who cares?!?!?!? Ha! Ha!

  4. ok, i do the same thing, blast the music I also pretend that we are having company, so i run around yelling "they are almost here, hurry!" and my kids think im nutty
