Camping Out!!!!!

Just another fast post. The other night, the children all camped out in the living room by the fire. We all lounged around listening to books on tape, it was very relaxing.

Daddy and I ended up going to the room because being that I am due in 2 weeks I could not get comfortable on the couch, but we stayed up till 10:30 and it was very enjoying.


Yesterday I was over at a friends blog, A Home Keepers Journey,and she did a post on cleaning tips from Fly Lady for her Tackle It Tuesday. Now, I don't normally use Fly Lady, not for any reason I just kind of go by my own schedule, but I did decide to take on Mrs. B. Tackle It Tues, and I can not believe how much I can get done in 15 min with 4 small children asking for this and that.

She had me cleaning for 15 min at a time and it was wonderful......







Now I know it is not Tuesday but I think everyone should head over to A Home Keepers Journey and try her tackle. I think I am going to try this daily. I also have my children doing it with their bed rooms, and they are enjoying it.
