It is now Tuesday, and miraculously my kitchen is still clean, the dining area is clean, and the front room is as clean as can be expected with 4 kids living in it. It really hasn't been difficult, and yes I know that really that is only 2 full days of keeping it clean, but we did have a huge pile of dishes after our get together Saturday night. At the end of the day, I'm tired, I'm sore and the last thing I want to do after fixing dinner is dishes. But I did it last night, and I'm making it a habit of rinsing most things and putting them in the left side of the sink, so it's easy to catch up.
I also have been following a menu plan. This is helped by the fact that we were given meals for both Sunday and Monday nights. Tonight we will hopefully have leftover Olive Garden from the Board Meeting, and I have food planned for the next few nights.
I'm really not sure what has come over me, but maybe this broke rib is a good thing.
