This week has been a bit of a *test* for me... I've had three different social activities thus far, which was pretty normal for us PS (Pre-Sabriel), but since then has been a bit of a challenge for me.

I wanted to see how it would go to start doing more stuff during the week.

On top of the adding-of-more-social-activities, I took a small (and when I say small, I mean miniscule- like a couple of hours a week) job doing occasional data entry for the Hubs' work. It's definitely taken up more time, but it'll also be fun to have that extra cash for all this new CHA stuff coming in. ;)

It's all been great. Really good for my soul.

BUT... my house has suffered a wee bit.

Exhibit A: My house at 4pm today. (Note especially the kids' room and the piles of laundry).

Ya know what, though- it's okay. We survive.

Plus, it wasn't as bad as it looked.

Exhibit B: Today at 7pm (Note especially the piles of laundry. Oh well. LOL)

You always amaze me at what you can accomplish with three wee ones running about!! There are days when I don't go do one little thing because I'd have to take Cole, and he's 7 - and pretty well behaved. I'm always inspired by you creatively - but as a mom - you always blow me away. You seem to always have it all together and know exactly what's going on!!! You ROCK girlie!!

Oh my. Virginia. How in the heck?
Every single day I am more convinced that God knew what He was doing when He decided I would not have children. ;)

The 4pm picture looks a lot like my house right now! It's a disaster, you know it's messy but not dirty, if that makes sense. Ari's having a blast throwing things around!! It's amazing what we can accomplish during a naptime, huh!

Virginia! What an accomplishment!

I commend you for being brave enough to show off your mess (lord knows anyone with small children in their house has the same exact messes) and then to show off how awesomely you cleaned!

Go you! :-)

I want to do this...although I don't think the after pictures will be done the same day lol. I am glad to see I am not the only one whose house gets out of control. I am trying to regin it in as we speak.

Hehe -- I "know" where you are coming from and I would say you tidied up quite nice espcially since the kiddos seem to destroy it in no time flat!

I love it when other people show their messes! It helps me to feel normal.
