Cleaning the Bathroom



Company is coming, of the overnight variety.
I kinda need to clean the bathroom. You know so they aren't completely repulsed by the way we live and never return.
Cleaning the bathroom...
Hmmmm...
What else could I do?
I could...
read a few blogs, take some Christmas cards out to the mail box, tell a 3 year old he can't have another snack right now, argue with him for an additional 5 minutes (whose the mom here?), pick up the bedrooms (I'm not a complete slacker!), write a blog on cleaning the bathroom, read a few more blogs, schedule a hair cut, stare aimlessly out the window at the pretty snow falling...
switch the laundry, apply stain remover to the lip gloss colored bedspread, rescue a crying baby, put the same baby to bed, get a snack for the boys, discuss my eye color with a three year old, ignore a whining child, check the laundry to see how much time is left...
Then again, I could go upstairs and clean the bathroom.
Or maybe...

If you can't get that lip gloss out let me know and I could bring you something that might. My mom gave it to me and it works GREAT! for things like that! So you don't like cleaning the bathroom? That' my favorite job also! NOT!! I just accomplished the task like is a really deep cleaning way just this week. It was LONG overdue! Enjoy your guest!

Of course my little 2 year olds (trying to train 4 to potty train) decided they would stick all the hairbrushes in the toilet isn't that nice they were trying to help ClEaN the bathroom!

so did you get it done? I can totally relate - our house was tidy yesterday & this morning I'm looking around & wondering how it could have gotten so cluttered in the 3 hours since the twins got up!!

I love the "That's Cool!" sticker on your stool! I recently took our vacuum in to be repaired (you cannot sweep up a sheet without burning up a belt.) Anyway, it has been decorated with stickers for some time & they took them off at the repair shop. Funny where stickers show up! Hope your company enjoyed the clean bathroom!
