Just Two More Days …

Reader Sue kindly pointed out that I’d forgotten to take a few pictures in my clean house! Secretly I was hoping no one would notice because I’ve been working on some projects in these rooms that I wasn’t ready to “reveal”, but I decided that’s just silly.

So here are the kitchen eating area (newly painted white table) and the family room (can you see what’s new?).

As far as the experiment goes, I think the Hubby blew it a little last night be encouraging certain kids to “walk around and see if there is anything they can do to be helpful”.

I will say this much: no amount of cleaning can remove the smell of stinky basketball shoes from a teenager’s room. GAG.

On Sunday we will review the state of the house and have a Family Home Evening about contributing to our family and our home.

Until then, the plate of waffles and syrup is STILL on the counter.

I notice a few new things in the family room. But they may not be new, rather new for me to notice: the clock and the little blue side table?

The waffles are still there? Wonder if the syrup's turned to rock candy yet.

Miss B finds the jelly glob picture to be fascinating...in a yucky kind of way.

I'm so naughty spoiling your reveal! The table looks fabulous, though, and I hope you will still do a full post on it. I agree with Melissa, I think the clock is new.

I cannot believe the syrup plate is still there! Wow, it's amazing what they can ignore when they want to.

My family has the bad habit of leaving things where they don't belong then expect ME to remember where in the world they left them. Like I can remember where I left my own things =)
