Entertainment Ideas

Parents, are you at your wits' end with your kids home from school? Here's a fun way to keep them entertained: move your furniture around and watch the fun begin.

In an attempt to clean the house for the upcoming weekend, I ripped the living room apart to Dyson the room up. I moved the couch away from the wall and ripped it apart so I could, you know, flip the cushions and what not, and you would have thought I'd given the younglings a new toy. They were jumping around having a wild time in this new open space.

Well....it's cheap, and it got them out of my way so I could get the cleaning done.

As for that hiring out comment....I'll have to consider that. I mean, you know, mileage, cost of rug shampoo and all that.

Oh heck woman! I'd have handed my kids the cleaning stuff and the vacuum and let them have at it! Hm. You just gave me an idea! :D

Wow, now "Dyson" is a verb. In England, "Hoover" is a verb as in "I've got to Hoover the carpet".

Somehow, "I've got to Wal-Mart 49.99. special the carpet" just doesn't have the same ring to it...

Daughter did use my duster (she refers to it as the "dusturd") while I was vacuuming. She loves to do that; the thing is so wild looking.

My girlies fight over the mop. I remember whining when I couldn't do dishes and vacuum for my mom. Bah. Memories.
