Unpresentable and My Little Organizer

Well, I hope you all had a good week-end. I know we did.

Saturday, Grammie Dee came and got the girls for awhile, to take them to a birthday party. Chris and I caught up on some much needed sleep. Thank you grandma!!! ha,ha

Sunday, we went to Josh's church. On top of being able to enjoy worshipping, we got to see some really good friends we haven't seen in awhile, and I was very thankful for that. After church, I dropped Chris off at the house...Aidan was going to be there soon, and went and got us all some lunch. When I got home, I found out Chris had given yet another tour of our home.


I hadn't cleaned all weekend. The floors needed to be swept, things needed dusted. It was a wreck.

Off of Sunday and into our conversation

Me: I CAN NOT believe you showed the house is filthy!

His response...."I think the house looks pretty good."

Me:, it doesn't. It was unpresentable!

Chris: Well, I was showing off the 'storm shelter.'

Me: You did what? Not only did you show off the showed off our horribly, unorganized closet.

Him: NO..I was showing off the storm shelter.

Me: The storm shelter IS in the floor of our closet. So, someone saw our closet.

Him: Who cares. It's a closet.

Did he seriously just say, 'Who cares?' I care!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In the midst of nearing a panic attack...he adds...well, you got compliments on your decor.

And he thinks that will make it all ok. lol

Is it just me, or does everyone else worry about these things too?

Because my hubs is practically convinced I am a nut-case and that I worry TOO much about these things.

On a lighter note:

When it comes to cleaning...Breanna is now very much enjoying taking the canned goods, and other food out of the cabinet.

The other day, Breanna took all the pudding out of the cabinet. But when I went to pick it was gone! Hmmmm....where did it go, I wondered. I opened the cabinet, and she had put them all back. Maybe Breanna is going to be my one child who actually likes to keep things picked up.

And now, back to our weekend....

after the near panic attack, we took the kids for a bike ride around the neighborhood. Ava got tired, so she climbed in the wagon with Breanna, and Chris attached her bike to the wagon so he could take it back home. Dropped it off, and rode down the street, to the next addition, and around.

On the way home the kids decided they wanted to go to the park, so we went home, loaded up and headed to the park.

Park 1 apparently wasn't too much fun so they decided we needed to go to the other park.

Load back up in the van, and go to park two. Aidan and Chris threw the football for awhile, and the girls played on the swings. (I can't believe I forgot the camera to our first outing of the year.)

After a while, the kids decided they were hungry and wanted to go to Sub-a-way, as Ava calls it. So, we went and had dinner, and then went to Home Depot to get some hedge clippers.

When we got home the kids invited ALL (and I mean all six) of the neighbor kids over to jump on the trampoline. It was a party in the backyard. Literally! Chris and I worked on the landscaping. It looks really pretty this time of year. My front porch is my favorite place....we just need to decide what kind of outdoor furniture to put out there.

    So glad you had a good weekend. Mine wasn't but I'm not sure I want to blog about it. Nothing tragic, just a crummy weekend.

    Love your landscaping.
