All week Gray has been waking me up early. Same old sleepy story today. After a couple books were read and I wished I could get back to sleep, I decided we should just take a walk. So we did. It had been raining but the rain had just stopped and I bundled us up for the chilly dawn. I soon realized that this was like, the best idea ever. Gray absolutely loves birds- and right about then there were birds everywhere with their heads cocked toward the ground, finding worms, singing songs.
When we got home I was energized and decided to vacuum all the baseboards. Yeah- at 6 in the morning. Hubby & my older boys slept right through it all. It was while I was vacuuming that Gray decided to shampoo the hallway carpet with an almost-full bottle of California Baby bubble bath. If you've ever used it, you know how expensive that is. But, what can you do.
As I was cleaning it up, I realized that 1) now our hallway has the aroma of chamomile, mandarin, and rosewater 2) cleaning up bubble bath from the carpet just makes more bubbles and 3) I should just use this to mop the kitchen floor- which I did.
I started another contest today and for a fleeting moment I thought: I hope people don't get annoyed with all my contests coming up ('cause I have quite a few more good ones for you...) and then I thought: contests are fun! You don't mind, do you? It seems like everyone's got a giveaway and this is good!
The latest one I must get in on is at Pinks & Blues- you could win a Dooney & Bourke summer handbag and Victoria's Secret perfume! Check it out!
So- everyone's having contests and that's a good thing, & all my floors are clean today. Well, were clean. Twice Noah yelled "Mom, Gray's got the ketchup again." It's nearing the end of the day now and, well, I'll just do it all again tomorrow.
