The break is over...here it is







Yes, I have taken a break myself, but my reasons are crappy..no literally it has to do with poop. Disgusting? I think so. Some of you may know, Landon has has a wee bit of the diarheah this past week, and this morning was IT.."it" as in my breaking point. Now I wasn't frustrated, or tired of it all (maybe a bit), but Michelle said to me, as in I said to myself, "Michelle, the house smells like poop, get up and do something about it" So I did! I have spent all day cleaning. Alli was at school the first half of the day and Landon slept the second half..BIG HELP :) Above you will find pictures of my yummy Fall scented home, can't wait for Ken's reaction when he gets home in a bit. I'm not kidding you guys, we have been living in a pig-sty with a poopy pig for a week, I just didn't have the energy or the drive to clean up at all. I feel so much better now..you know its one of my favorite things, i.e. refer to "things I love" in the archives for more on this topic. <--I am so funny. Notice there is a room missing from the pics, I said I cleaned, I didn't say I got carried away, can anyone guess what room? Yeah, I know it was too easy. I have family to the West that hasn't seen our new home so this might help, and I will keep these on file for when we want to sell, that way I won't have to clean again until then :) J/K

Fabulous job. My husband wishes he could be so lucky to have a cleaner for a wife. I bet it smells wonderful now!

By they way. When will you be doing Christmas pictures? Plus you never responded to my emails I sent you. I sent them to the new address you gave me as well. Did you get them?

Wow, Michelle! Your house is really really clean and neat. Not that I have ever seen it messy though! I showed Tim the pics as an example of what a house could look like! You have inspired me to clean...

HA!..honestly I had to take the pictures after each room was cleaned because I knew it wouldn't last long enough to clean everything, then go back through and take all the pics...anyway, this really only lasted maybe an hour, the kids woke up, and my hard work went down the drain. However it did feel so nice for those short 60 minutes...I was going to take pics of what it all looked like the next day, but I was too embarrassed..seriously, my house never stays this clean :)

You know what's neat, and I never noticed it before. The mirror in your entry is green (from the wall in the dining room). How funny!!

Believe it or not, the house looks like this a lot more than she makes it out. Thank you for doing such a good job cleaning our house when we have two messy kids.
