Bite Back!


Go check it out!!!

I am doing something I have never done before, I have threatened it, I have swore I'm gonna do it, and now today as of 8:43AM MST I am NOT CLEANING UP AFTER ANYONE...except for Matthew of course!

I guess it's a strike of some sort, although I am not halting cooking, laundry and general cleaning. I am just stopping that notorious wandering through the house putting things back where they belong and I am not going to stand in the kitchen hollering "Who's bowl is on the table and not in the sink?" NOPE! Nobody in this house seems to understand why I get so frustrated about the 'little things'. "It's just socks under the couch", "It's just some paper on the table", "It's just a box of half eaten crackers beside the computer" and I know ya'll know where this is going, because I'm sure ya'll deal with the same thing.

So, until Sunday evening, I am not doing A THING. Perhaps my theory that the house will implode will come true and maybe not. At any rate, I hope it proves the point that one pile creates another. If your laundry is not in the laundry pile, it will not be washed. If your dishes are not by the sink, emptied/scraped- they will not be washed. It should be interesting! This is going to take every ounce of will power I have to resist not putting away those pairs of shoes or tossing that wrapper in the garbage. I think it's time though, and apparently my family learns from doing and seeing NOT listening! For those of you wondering, yes this includes my dear husband as well...I'm not sure he thinks I am serious, but I think come tomorrow and the next day, it will begin to sink in. We shall see!!! I'll keep ya posted!

Have a blessed Thursday!

You are brave indeed!!! I know the mess bothers me more than anyone else so no one else would really mind. Well except hubby and he would just holler at the kids to clean up.

I can't wait to hear how it goes!
