*After many a math battle Marissa is really "getting" it. I checked story problems today, many 2-part and she was nailing them! Yippee!
*Josh's help in bailing out the sinking ship that is housekeeping . . . Before he headed off to his practicum he helped me tackle upstairs general untidiness and then cleaned the living room carpet. I love fresh-cleaned carpets!
*Made "Chocolate Peppermint Snaps" (cookies) for snack. Warm out of the oven cookies, need I say more? ;o)
*After a week of laziness, I got in a morning run (and yay! it's lighter in the morning--for awhile anyway!)
*After mopping the kitchen floor a few days ago I think the kids have managed to spill apple cider on it no less than 38 times. And in spite of my vigilance in trying to wipe it up, it is sticky--everywhere.
*I may have eaten six cookies.
*I mean seven.
*I left Jackson alone in my room with four neatly sorted baskets of laundry (boys, girls, adults, towels). I returned to one big pile on my bed and Jackson buried in the midst. I was not so happy.
*A part broke out of my dishwasher--Josh can fix it--but I had to do dishes by hand tonight. The girls helped with drying and only one glass bowl was broken in the process.
*Called my father-in-law to get his take on present day demon-possession and the possibility that Emmett suffers from such a fate after I hauled him (Emmett that is, not my father-in-law) kicking and screaming from the YMCA after dropping off Isabella.
*Jackson sent a container of yogurt soaring off the coffee table (which should not have been there in the first place) splattering mixed berry goodness all over my freshly-cleaned carpet. *sob*
*The loud decibels my voice *may have* reached upon discovering my now-not-so-clean carpet :o(
Thank goodness for "mercies new every morning." I used up my full allotment today.
