But first we cleaned the family room. And we scrubbed every. single. bathroom. We have 4. This is the first time in...ever...that all the bathrooms were clean at once. Really. It wasn't pretty. And I still need to get down on my hands and knees to do all the bathroom floors. But all the fixtures are washed and the floors were swept. They just need a little more.
We headed out to my sister Kris's house in the woods.
Where my children ran free for 2 1/2 days. Even the 4 year old. And I didn't worry once because her whole acre is fenced to keep dogs and small children in. I can't even tell you how much my kids liked being in the middle of nowhere with nothing to do. They did things like whisper in the ear of the deaf dog (in an attempt to make her hear him), cross country croquet (inventive!), play with wooden swords, take rides with Uncle Fun on dirt bikes, eat good food, play video games, play Phase 10- wait, that was me.
We also went to some second hand stores. Because they had new junk that I had never seen because they were out of my area. No, wait, scratch that. there was something I had seen before. And I found it quite humorous. I was looking through the picture frames and I saw a piece of art my sister made. I had to laugh because, really, what are the chances?
Anyway, we had a good visit and we got home late Saturday night. I planned that because the drive is quiet that way, and I don't have to stop for potty!
