Today officially started Spring Break and my kids decided that break does not equal sleeping in, Spring Break=Wii time and triple berry pancakes. So, up we were, and somehow I found a burst of enery and motivation that has been severely lacking in this whirlwind of germs and Basketball Wives. (Have y'all ever watched that? I feel ashamed admitting I did. It was a marathon. I was sick.) Anyway, I was already in my 5 year old, stretched out from pregnancy, Christmas pajama pants and a white t-shirt so I decided it was bleach day. I cleaned out our bathrooms. I mean CLEANED them out. Would you believe I have 4 blow dryers? I don't even blow dry my hair, y'all. I was feeling guilty but realized that Josh also had 4 pairs of hair clippers. We will now be accepting applications for hairstylist for our salon. Please send your resumes ASAP. :) I got both bathrooms and the kitchen and dining room totally cleaned and it felt so good! The kids cleaned the playroom and the girl's room all by themselves. There is no telling what is under the beds, but I was too happy today to care.
I still have 80 trillion loads of laundry to do, but as I was standing in the mountain of laundry in the laundry room Sarah said, "I thought Spring Break was supposed to be when we all do fun stuff together." I started to ask, "What? This ain't fun?" But, all of a sudden the joy of Spring took over and I decided we did need to do something fun. So, we finished our chores and headed out to check out the PeaceMaker, a huge sailboat that docked in our port and was giving free tours. I kept telling the kids it was a surprise and I've decided I need to stop doing that. It drives them crazy and me too as they guess for a full 4 hours what the surprise is. The good news is they were excited and had lots of fun checking out the beautiful boat.
