Ok ladies lets get busy!

if you are unfamiliar, here is how this works: you see this thread pop up in new posts/new replies and you go do 5 minutes worth of work in your home (feel free to set a timer) and then come back and tell us what you did. every time you see this thread pop up you go do the same, so the more you do the more i do, also the more people playing the more gets done! feel free to do a cklist - some people like to mark off what they did i guess it gives them a sense of accomplishment my list never gets finished, so i like just adding what i did

I totally need this today! I have company coming tomorrow and my house looks like a tornado (or three small tornadoes named after my children) have destroyed it. We've been mostly home for the last few weeks during the chicken pox incubation period and the house has been thoroughly used and abused!
So, time to get busy:

Emptied the dishwasher
Put the breakfast dishes in
Got son started on learning activities
