Edward...

Suckers! This has nothing to do with Edward.
A miracle has happened. I just realized that my kids, well, half of them anyways, are old enough to help out around the house. I had spend the morning watching a certain movie with a certain fun group of gals. I called Tom on the way home, and he was less than two hours away, and in a frenzy to get the house clean before he appeared, I solicited the help of my kids. Hazel was in charge of the bathrooms. Thomas was in charge of the dishes. I was so impressed. I am just realizing how people make things work. I see how my mom was able to have 13 kids. She turned them into slaves. (Lucky for me, it was easy to fall though the cracks.) Although it wasn't perfect, it was great for a first timer, and it freed me up to do other things like windows, that never get done. I love kids growing up!
What a boring post. I feel ashamed I have wasted your timee...Remember, blog=journal. This is for the ladies...

Somehow, I barely remember working. I remember picking up 100 things. And, mostly I remember escaping to the swing set to escape the chores. It ALWAYS worked! I was a horrible kid. I think Mindy cleaned with the power of 10 slaves. Anyhow, my kids are getting there too. Isn't it weird to not have a baby? I am kind of freaking out about it, but in like a happy kind of way, like, "YAY! I don't have a baby..... Can I hold yours?" Have you seen the twilight movie? Is it any good?

Do you have any idea how much cleaning Edward could get done? A lot.

I needed a microscope to see that picture of Edward with his OLD girlfriend.
