Excuse Me

Excuse me;
I did not mop my floor today, I may have swept if you are lucky.
I have not folded the laundry yet..that is piled high on my couch.
I haven't picked up the toys that line our halls & bathroom.
I did not wash our windows this month, but the kids washed mirrors last week.
I have not de-cluttered the front entry table from the PILES of bills, cards, magazines, or art projects, oh how I love to show off my treasures.
I haven't put the stacks & stacks of movies or books away that the "terror" pulled out today, he sure had a lot of fun!
I did not scrub the bathroom today, I did however change the toilet paper. So you don't have to sing the "stranded" song (ask Nikki).
And I haven't blogged in over a week...but I have visited many of YOURS.


I need a huge plaque with this on it, right at the front door. So when you enter the chaos, you will just smile & nod like you understand why my house does not look like Martha Stewart's!

(Thank you Shanda for sending this to us)

    1. yes! get it and put it up! it even is in your signature "orange"- you didn't know you have a signature orange? you do.

      i like it! chaos is good if it is happy and yours is. and leslie is your sister up there and she commented on my blog because i put a picture up of shae and i felt so so cool!!!

    2. I need this sign for my house too! I am seriously going to figure out how to make one. hehehe Stranded, stranded on the bowl....without a ROLL...of toilet paaaaaper.

    3. i LOVE that song! but now i can't recall where i saw it. cause i heard y'all singing it once and happened upon it not too long after. but now i don't know where i sawr it.
      so, i haven't yet gotten around to making my sign. and when did i do this? a year ago? but maybe i should just make a few on a neat thing (something really neat) and i'll send you one... some day. maybe soon. unless nikki beats me to it.
      and i don't feel like i should call my house "messy". it's just "organized chaos". am i right? if i was to clean up i wouldn't be able to find anything.
      and if we cleaned it up it would take T-10 seconds to get it back to where it was. ok, maybe a little longer. but yesterday i swept, vacuumed AND mopped my kitchen floor to have aylen spill a cup full of milk and ember crack an egg on the floor not 5 minutes after i had finished. joy.
