Procrastination - Part 2

In view of how encouraging y'all were in recent comments, I feel the need to offer a few facts up in effort of full disclosure:

1. If I hadn't done any laundry, we would have had to wear cloth napkins.  And though it was unseasonably warm the last few days, it's darn cold today and I'm all about full coverage. 

2.  There was also the possibility of losing a small child in the laundry pile.  I swear, it looked as if it was sprouting teeth and some legs. 

3.  Not feeding the children usually results in evil attitudes.   C has been known to take matters into her own hands and gnaw on me. (I generally feed my kids though... most of this is speculation)

4.  Not cleaning the soccer bag would have meant that we may have had to call a Hazmat team in to deal with the sock issues.  Um, and I know I mentioned the vileness of Shaun's socks, but again, in effort of full disclosure, I have to admit that mine were in there too. 

5.  And the toy organization?  Had we not gotten a new bookshelf/entertainment unit, I would never have bothered in a million years.  But do you know how hard it is to put something together on a floor covered with toys?  Also, do you know how nice it is to have a place for everything?  Makes me WANT to put things away.  (We'll see how long that lasts)

Anyway, lest you all looked at my self-depricating entry about procrastination and thought that I was some sort of motivated super-mom, I figured I'd let you know the full story.

Heck, next time I might take some before and after pics to really give y'all the true story.  :)


  1. You are too too funny! I love you, jan

  2. How would you like some help with laundry, kids and other things around the house?

  3. I am so with you! I keep trying to subsided the nesting rumors with the "my husband will file for divorce if the towels fall out of the linen closet when the door is opened again!" truth, but everyone still blames it on the pregnancy :-P I'm hoping I can keep up with the clean house! I'm sure you can as well!!
