A smattering of Monday

It's Monday.  I'd rather prefer Friday, but I'll take it!   I finished my owl hat.  It's a nice change to be crossing things off my list instead of adding them on.  But then again, adding is so much fun...

J and I made a big batch of play-dough this morning.  It's been a while.  The kids love anything to do with dough.  I haven't made play-dough in so long because we make savoury dough so often - they get their fix while helping me bake in the kitchen.  (And I get two birds with one stone!)  But today we did play-dough.

My only lament is the state my floors.  Play-dough and carpets are not fun to clean.

Speaking of cleaning, I wonder sometimes how other people clean their homes.  Is there a routine involved, or it's just a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants affair?  I don't know if it's the same for everyone, but during most weeks, a mood will strike me.  It's a sort of nesting instinct minus the pregnancy.  It's a primal "I MUST clean" feeling.  I cannot rest or eat or make anything until it is appeased.  There is no logic involved.  Just me and the mop.  (Or sponge.)  And that is how my house gets cleaned!  Well, almost.  I try to do a chore a day so that it's not a huge affair come the weekend.  Usually it works.  Sometimes it doesn't.

But that's another story.


  1. LOL I have the same cleaning urge - although I don't have kids... so maybe its genetic?

  2. It all makes so much sense now. :o) I always like order mind you, but I've had to... redefine what order is since babies arrived. *sigh* xo
