Is it bedtime yet?!

I swear I get so confused when it starts getting dark so early. It just makes the day feel much later than it is lol. I'm ready for bed already and it's only 6:30! Had a pretty good day, a little busier than I expected. After watching my friend's girls, my boys both took a nap for a few hours so I just sat around and read a book for a bit. Around 5pm dear hubby got a call from his brother who said he was going to stop by and see us...in 15 mins. The house was a big mess so I got all flustered and started throwing things in drawers, scooped the dirty dishes into the dishwasher, wiped the counters, quickly vacuumed, and cleaned up the boys' room. I was so proud of how quickly I got the house cleaned up. Of course then hubby told me he was wrong and they'd be a little more than 15 mins. :P Gee, thanks. Luckily they did take longer, because 2 year old decided to act his age and try to flush a whole roll of toilet paper down the toilet. Obviously it wouldn't go down, because I walked in to find an inch of water filling the bathroom and seeping onto my bedroom carpet. We quickly worked to contain the flood, I plunged the toilet until it drained and we used all our towels soaking up the water. Hopefully we got it good enough that it won't ruin our carpet. Oh well, the bathroom needed mopped anyway lol :P Anyway, we managed to get that all cleaned up, the boys cleaned up to look presentable, and looked like a fairly put-together family when brother-in-law and his girlfriend showed up. They'll never know the total chaos they would've walked into just a 1/2hr earlier. All in all it's been a really good day. On the down side I think I'm getting a chest cold, my chest feels all heavy and hard to take a deep breath and my throat almost feels bruised and I have a deep cough. I hope I don't get too sick, and the kids don't get it.

Don't you love unexpected guests?? NOT! Here's a hint.. always leave your vacuum out then you can tell people they caught you in the middle of cleaning :)

LOL Barb, what a great idea :D Actually my vacuum was already sitting out in my living room from the last time I vacuumed, so I didn't have to haul it up from the basement.
