If we compare today against yesterday, today would be 10,564 points ahead of yesterday!

The laundry is done...well mostly. There are still a few shirts that need to be hung but it turns out I actually do not own enough hangers for the number of shirts that I have. How that came to be I can't rightly tell you, but I'm almost positive it had something to do with the fact that I abhor putting laundry away and therefore will dress myself and my children with clean clothes straight from the basket. See, even if I had wanted to put everything away I wouldn't have been able to. It was better to be naive for so long. Really, who wants to spend Christmas money on clothes hangers?


Not only that, but nearly every room is tidy. Sanders' needs a bit of attention and I'm sure my sewing/craft room needs some help, but every thing else is quite presentable.


Now I feel like we can add toys and trinkets and I won't have to lose my mind. I think that's much closer to the Christmas spirit of things.

In addition to the house being in order, today is also far better than yesterday because Kevin and I found a cute babysitter to watch the kiddos so we could go to Meghan and Alex's annual Christmas game night! Fun!!! Kevin won all the games we played so we are just not sure he is invited next year. Next year I might not be able to "find" a babysitter and I will have to go, so sad. *wink*

It's a great feeling to have your house in order.

Let's give Kevin another chance. If he does it again in 2012 He may have to play blindfolded or something.

Yay! Glad you are feeling better. Sometimes the mess in my house feels overwhelming and I just pick up one room and I feel better

I am curious about the points system you use...

I am also glad today was a better day. :)
