I have some serious fall cleaning to do this week, as my sister and her soon-to-be fiance are coming to visit this weekend, so I need to get the house ready. plus, our holiday of Sukkot started today, and I still have to get our sukkah finished, the budget isn't done for October, and we are behind where I was hoping we would be with homeschooling, so I need to readjust the plans. all in all, I feel behind the 8 ball and pretty grumpy about it.
I'm sorry.

I'm probably going to be the saddest source of motivation you've ever come across. I actually started the overhaul because I ordered DH and the minions new wardrobes last week and there's no way they're going to fit in the closets in their current state.

The trouble is that is is cobwebby and needs to be cleaned. Plus,the bunny cage, hamster and random toys are out there.... Sigh. How clean does a room NEED to be for men to play poker in, really?? DH will help, but has a busy week, so I want to peg away at it. The bonus is, then it will be ready to turn into a playroom area for the winter after poker night.
Throw a couple of jack o' lanterns in there and call the cobwebs Halloween ambiance.

I woke up 5:00 this morning with a splitting headache and a naked toddler vomiting on my head. Fabulous!! Someone want to remind again me why I had kids? Seems that the vomiting was a fluke, as aforementioned toddler gives all indications of being hale and hearty now. Guess I'll be doing some laundry today.
