I’ve really been meaning to get back to that cleaning house topic… I’ve done a little research into what SHOULD be cleaned on a daily, weekly, monthly, etc. basis. And the good news is I’m getting MOST of what is suggested done each week. I can’t say I have any solutions yet, or a working schedule… And, currently, looking around my house, I feel pretty overwhelmed. I have 4 loads of laundry waiting to be folded and toys cover the living room floor. Sure, I probably could be using this time to pick some of it up, but I need this computer time to maintain my sanity levels since my dear husband is working all weekend until way past the kiddos’ bedtimes. So, I promise to work on that post this week.
Today I need a little humor, so I’ll share a little something from my daughter:
My daughter was playing quietly yesterday when I heard her talking, “Sometimes I hear geckos in the garage.” Intrigued, I started listening more closely to her playing. “Geckos sound like this…” (This was followed by her whispering “gecko, gecko”.)
“Are you talking about lizards, Peanut?”
“A chameleon is a lizard, Mommy.”
“You hear geckos…”
This is when it finally dawned on me what she was talking about, “Echoes…I think you mean echoes, Sweetie. Geckos are little lizards; you hear echoes sometimes.”
I thought she had it all straight until her daddy came home. “Daddy, want to hear a gecko?” she asked as she opened the basement door and called “boo” into the darkness.
Guess we’ll work on that one some more another day…
