My List of Randoms

Just following Cynthia's lead from over at Finding Great Joy.  She is asking what is on your list of randoms for the day.  Well since my house is on the market and 1. no one has come to see it for well over a month 2. we had sort of let the organized tidy stuff all go 3. so when a realtor called asking if she could show the house that evening (this was yesterday) I of course said YES! 4. But that left me with a HEAP of cleaning to get done in one day.....like the entire house inside and out.  5.  But I DID it!  Everything is all shiny and clean!  But now my dilemma is that my house is all clean this morning and so.......other than the feed and dress the kids and that sort of daily stuff I have no cleaning to take care of.  This leaves me with a list of random stuff to do.  So, here is my to do list for today:

1. Pick the rainiest day and then decide you will get all of your out of the house errands done...
2.  Go to Wal-Mart vision center to have them adjust your two week old glasses after having the children use you as a jungle gym rendering your glasses unwearable.
3. Tell yourself that taking a 4 and almost 3yr old to Toys R Us to buy a gift for ANOTHER child is no big deal.....then execute said plan
4. Realize that leaving the house for these errands is the only logical way to maintain the ridiculous level of shiny cleanliness you achieved yesterday......As you are currently hearing, from one floor away, the children breaking out EVERY SINGLE TOY SIMULTANEOUSLY from the toy room.
5. Wonder what Cynthia's news to tell is and sort of think that perhaps you called her on it a few weeks ago. *achem*
6. Hold it all together just long enough to make it to knitting class tonight!

it's all a fine balancing act after all....

My must they balance precariously upon the bumbo and threaten to crack their little noggins? Why?!?!?!?
