The first Sunday morning we were all here was utter insanity. The house ended up needing WAY more cleaning than we anticipated, so we were further behind than I expected to be after being in the house for a week. We had been living out of suitcases for two weeks and I had worn the same dress to church for the 3 previous weeks. I was ready to wear a different dress. The only problem was that it was unexpectedly cold and my clothes were in three different boxes in three different rooms in the house. Pulling together an outfit almost made me lose my mind. And then my hose had a run in the toe, so I had to dig out another pair. And I had to wear hose because my legs looked like Sherwood forest. (nudging my old room mate - remember that one M?) Yes, personal grooming had not been very high on the priority list. And then I had to find matching shoes. And the correct slip was nowhere to be found. And then I had a raging static problem and my hair just was NOT cooperating. Every time I tried to find something, I had to look in four places before I found it. Some people live like this all the time. I cannot do it. So it was imperative for me to get some order because my mental stability was pretty weak for a while there. :) So here are some more pictures...
Our two biggest jobs - floor cleaning and wall washing... still not done with the walls.
|The carpets did, in fact, change color after being cleaned!|
|The Littles helped out too.|

|The very PINK bathroom... funny in a house full of boys!|
|Going up the stairs... the W.C.|

|The other side... see those walls? That is AFTER two cleanings.|
