Back to the Cleaning

I've decided that a week is more than enough time to walk around in a shell-schocked stupor of a new calling and a new kid, and it's time to get back to the cleaning/nesting thing.  

Today's projects will be cleaning the bathrooms, hallway, and stairs again.  And baking up the pumpkins and squash I received from our CSA so I can freeze them for future Thanksgivingy use.   The outlet covers and switch plates are still not painted and TODAY is the day.

Later this week, watch for the "What the heck we were thinking when we decided to adopt a teenager" post.  I've had so many people ask me that, that I figure next time I can just give them the blog address and be done with it.  ;)

I would benefit from some serious inspiration in the cleaning department. Can I just say how discouraging it is to clean when I have two toddlers ever "un-doing" my work? Ah, well...sorry for complaining. Can't wait to hear the story of adopting. Just thinking about you guys has brought tears to my eyes several times this week.

Even though my boys are older, they still seem to tear through the house like tornadoes. I totally get the frustration, my friend. However, think of all the cute pictures that come when kids get into 50 lbs. of flour. ;)
