Scrub the castle
Following the busy days of last week, the "castle" is in shambles! I almost included pictures to prove that my house is not in perfect order 24/7 like some believe. Sorry - I couldn't. It was too embarrassing! Since the "queen" of the castle is also the headmistress, I canceled school for today. I ensured myself a good night of sleep by taking Benadryl last night, and lounged in bed until nine this morning! It was wonderful! The boys behaved well, but I did have to make a few new laws from my "bedchamber." You know the "Do not hit the piano keys while your brother is playing a song" type of rules. Other than that, they have had a wonderful time playing and racing around the house. I, on the other hand, had a wonderful time sleeping and resting!
They did "surprise" me with their new game. (I am not sure how this rates with "Crashing Fat Bellies.") They kept tossing stuffed puppies until they landed on the ceiling fan, and then sent the poor things spinning until they would plummet to the floor. (Sounds like something their mother would have done years ago. :-)

Now, I am off to clean the castle. . .Speaking of "castles," where are the maids around this place? Oh, well. . .guess I am stuck with just me. I will have to rely on the old imagination by inventing a new game so the boys and I can have a great time cleaning!

I would have loved to seen pictures of the castle in shambles since I am one that does not believe it happens. As you know, my clean is a mess to your standards! Must be nice to stay in bed until 9am! I could never leave Aaron in the house without constant supervision. (Unless I wanted more of a mess than I already have) Honestly, I think you deserved the rest! You have been going non-stop!

Do you have current tags yet? Did Troy enjoy the trip to the DMV?

A small chalet in central Indiana was a bit out of control too after a weeklong revival. I was Queen of Quite-A-Mess, but I think we've remedied most of it now.
