Life Overwhelming

Sometimes I just get swamped with things going on in our lives and don't get everything accomplished in a day. We have been hosting gatherings for the holidays and for chris's birthday and we still have two gatherings coming up in the next week (Kathryn's going away party and my birthday). We have had so many guests, of both the adult and child varieties, that our home looks like it imploded. Indiana and his gang of "banditos" succeeded in dragging every toy out of both toy boxes (including the one pictured here) and hiding them strategically all over the house.

It rained during our barbecue on Saturday. The guys tracked it all over as they went in and out with beers and briquets. The amount of dirt in my carpets is evidenced by the color of Indy's socks as he wanders the carpeted areas.

I meant to get the shampooer run. I meant to hit the kitchen floor with the swiffer wet jet. I meant to dance around the place with our bright yellow feather duster. I meant to find Tinky Winky's head (it has gone missing). I meant to do a lot of things, and now that Indy is sleeping, I can do them. Does anyone actually believe i will do anything other than a nice hot bath and bed? Perhaps the Housework Fairies will come during the night!! If not, well, tomorrow is another day.

Hey, we've got the same fishy pillow!

And no, no, no, my dear. No cleaning while Indy is sleeping. That's when YOU nap, too! Didn't you read the handbook?

I'll bet your husband is going to go get his buddies to help, and he'll do the housework. Think so?

Don't I wish there were housework fairies...*sigh*

Just think about the fun, don't worry about the dirt.
