This is the week of blah!

As many of you well know being at home with the kids can get quite monotonous.  I’m just trying to do stuff to keep us all busy until its time for bed again. I don’t know why, but this week it seems worse than ever and its only Tuesday.

I’ve finally started getting ready to move. I’m no longer sitting in denial about it. We still don’t have a clue when or where or how we’ll be moving. But I’ve decided to get a jump start on the cleaning. By cleaning I mean washing my blinds, cleaning out my cabinets washing them and oiling the wood. I need to start going through all the baby junk. I’m trying to get a jump on things so that when whatever is going to happen finally happens, I’ll be somewhat prepared for it.

I feel like I’m 12 again and not allowed to do anything until I get my chore done for the day- TRUE STORY. But at least it has givin me some purpose beyond mothering my children. That and I won’t feel like such a slob if my mom comes out to help pack and move. I know she would be disappointed in the maintenance of my house. But really who has time to scrub the floorboards with a toothbrush?

By the way does anyone have a good way to get hard water off of a glass shower? I’ve tried everything from CLR to toilet bowl cleaner- which stripped the nickel finish on my hardware but did nothing to the hard water. I’m to the point where I’m about ready to bust a razor blade out. And since the last time I cleaned with a razor blade it ended in stitches through my thumb nail . . . okay we won’t get into that because it’s gross. Needless to say I’m fighting a losing battle being only armed with a squeegee and various toxic and useless cleaners.
