That's what I did on the house today. Not one bloomin' thing.

I woke up this morning and realized that I had no clean clothes, my husband is eating cereal out of a mixing bowl, and the maid is on strike.

I had no gumption and no desire to do anything because everything needs to be done.

Somehow during this remodel I failed to factor in the whole general contractor/whip cracker vs. housewife/maid thing. While I've been cracking the whip at a pretty steady rate the laundry has piled up and a mixing bowl full of cereal just might be a bit much for DH at one sitting. The maid must be union or something.

Even though I wore my jammies until 1 PM, I'm proud to say I finally have some clean clothes and DH can have a normal sized bowl of cereal in the morning.

I think a day of doing nothing, a little bit of shopping at Hobby Lobby, and getting my Mom and sister home has done wonders for me.

I've found my gumption and I'm ready to tackle the house again in the morning.

What? You're not supposed to eat cereal out of the mixing bowl? Really? Huh.

I love Jammies Until 1 PM days.

Can't believe how far you've come in such a short time. You've really worked hard and it showed when I got my personal tour! Great job, I'm so proud of you.
