Well, I have started a blog. I don't really know what I'm doing here. Boredom I guess. (like that is possible in my house). I enjoy writing and this way I can do something about it. I also wanted to start this so that I can have a record of what wild stuff my boys do. I only have two, but sometimes it feels like I have 6.

I am married to a wonderful man that works extremely hard so that I can stay home and homeschool our two adorable mischievious little boys.

I enjoy cooking, but dislike cleaning. Actually, I dispise cleaning. I do it just so that my husband doesn't have to come home to a dirty house and complain. So I just put everything away in boxes or totes or hide stuff under the beds, couches, or whatever, just so that it's not noticeable when he gets home. "See honey, I have worked just as hard all day, can you tell?" Then the next day I forget about the boxes or totes and then my totes and boxes multiply. Just like rabbits. Eventually I have to sort through those boxes and hope that I didn't put any food in there. I just can never get in the "mood" to clean. I have tried to turn candles on and listen to music while cleaning, I CAN'T DO IT!!!! So in order for me to "clean", I have to remember that I'm not doing it for anyone other than God. He sees it all. He knows how hard I work. I guess that means I can't sweep the dirt under the rug huh?
The picture above is an "experiment" my kids made. It is a waterhose that runs into a yellow toolbox(filled with water) that has a tube connected to the end of the waterhose, that has another tube connected to the end of that tube, that runs into a blue bucket(filled with water) that is inserted into the end of an empty coke can. Oh yeah, the dryer vent is supposed to have worked like a water fountain.

I feel the same way about cleaning... maybe we can be neighbors someday and hire the same cleaning lady. Also...I have to say the boys are very inginuitive. They come up with the most amazing ideas.
