I guess I was so giddy with excitement that my kids were home to help me clean house, that I forgot what day it was. Not only was I giddy with delight that they were home, but they HAD NO HOMEWORK!
Homework and school really get in the way of household chores and my general schedule. I don't complain during the school year (okay, maybe I do a little), and I do most of the chores because I feel my kids' jobs are to go to school and get good grades. But I hate cleaning house alone, so I usually try and get short bursts of cleaning done right before a weekend homework session.
Yesterday, though, I had them all morning. So you can see why I would lose my head and forget about my blog. Today is for them and their friends. That is their reward for helping me yesterday.
It all works out in the end and helps our Christmas spirit along.
