OK So I Lied

I think one of the reasons I have really slowed down on my blogging is simply because I simply cannot get back into it no matter how hard I try. And I do try. I feel as though I write and there is no one out there to hear what I say because honestly there isn't anymore. Not that I had many followers when I was writing but now I really have none.

Anyhoo. Obligatory first day of school picture of my 6th, 7th and 8th graders:
I know. They're entirely too big for their own good.  Brady had his first football game this past Saturday:
That scrawny little number 2? That's my son trying to block a kid who was almost double his size in pads.

I gave Belle a lesson in friendship bracelets a couple of weekends ago:
I can't tell you how many of these I made or how many hours I spent working on the next one. Belle has my want when it comes to making something but her daddy's impatience when it comes to finishing it. This one? Ended up being a ring because she got bored. The next one she made actually made it all the way to completion but only because she was making it for a friends birthday. I do know that she has one that she has started and that's as far as it's made it. It has been moved from her purse to her room to her purse but hasn't had any progress made on it at all.

Next pictures of four of the cats eyeballing a moth at the end of the hallway:
Sebastian is the one who finally won the prize when the moth came too close to his huge paws. Ginger is a HUGE fan of the dryer:
That is one of her most favorite places in the house, especially if I am folding laundry. She loves to try and catch what I pull out. 

Lately my life has been a lot about cleaning. I have cleaned my kitchen, washed down cabinets, washed windows, cleaned dishes and ceiling fans. For the most part, I've been keeping up with it and for me that is amazing. I'm not one who likes to do the dishes immediately after supper. I just finished cooking it. I want time to relax before I clean it up. Also? I have made all four beds the majority of the last 4 weeks. Awesome! And yes I make the kids beds simply because they get up at 6am, eat breakfast before they catch the bus in addition to getting ready and only have about 45 minutes to get it all done so I don't mind making their beds if it means I don't have to drive them to school. I have been slowly working on my living room. My windows are clean, curtains are clean, picture frames are clean. I even dusted! My goal is to finish cleaning off my desk and I will be happy with the progress I've made. The catch will be how long it actually lasts before it goes back to normal and if I can get the rest of the house picked up before it reaches that point. That is my goal! To have all of my house clean at the same time!

Now that I have bored you with my mindless dribble, my accomplishments tonight. A blog post and a clean desk. Very, very cool.
