OK so here is my first entry on one of my favorite words! TACKLE, when I put this word on my list, I thought it might mean "I need to tackle a project!" or lets tackle this big mess I did not mean for it to be a literal tackle like " lets all tackle Tanner!" The boys are out of school today for Martin Luther King day and its only 11:48am they have been so loud and crazy and yes TACKLING every thing and every body. I wish it wasn't so cold out (right now its 33) I would send them right out side, but whats a mom to do they did do there job for the day so now its Wii or T.V.
I can't let that happen, (I need to finish Brittons Mural in his room today) so when I suggested they make a fort out of the cushions they said OK if we can have a beanie baby war which consists of throwing little beanie baby's at each other resulting in Taylor and Britton in tears every time, not to mention all the little dings in the walls when the eyes hit the wall at 20miles an hour! But whats a mom to do and whats a clean Basement its just going to get messy again and we are building memories right? I guess when I'm done with Brittons room I can just touch up the basement walls too.
OK so here is the funny thing about me, I get side tracked I didn't publish my blog this morning because I the phone rang, well.... I got busy painting the mural and the kids played drag racing, wars and yes TACKLE Frisbee in the house, all was right in the world. But then the phone rang again just as I was finishing up Brittons room I reached for the vacuum to take it out of the room and it caught on a gallon of white paint yes you heard me right. (and Yes it's the second gallon of paint to be spilt on our new carpet the first being Taylor and the red paint). This was taken after 1hr and 20min of using the carpet cleaner and I'm just exhausted. I will have to work on it a little more to night but right now I'm going to take a break and drink a cup of hot chocolate (I wish I had something strong to put in it! I have one more day of all the kids at home, I'm not staying home I don't want to get into any more messes while Bryan is away on his business trip.
