I can’t believe I haven’t had any kids come in here this entire time. Guess what? I washed our couches and couch cushions and I helped too. These are what the cushions look like without the covers on them, so our couch is so much better. It still has like a couple stains on it, but it looks so much better. And it smells so much better And I could live with this for a little while. I could I was getting to a point where I was like oh… This couch is just so disgusting. I don’t want to even have it in here anymore, so I’m like okay. I’m gonna… I’m just gonna have to wash it. Okay, so I was thinking, man I probably need to do some exercising and cleaning and I feel like I haven’t gotten much done And then I realized I have washed two couches by hand the spray bottle. And James washed the windows. Yeah, he even liked it. And that needed to happen really bad too. I cleaned up by an accident that Ellie had this morning. I also sewed a beanbag last night, and I went out to the garage, and I found all these little white pellets you can see some of them right here. These little white pellets. I went and cleaned up as much of them as I could from the garage floor. That had fallen out of the box that I got the leg lamp in and then I sewed a cover to go over the top of this beanbag so once I get it filled up with others, the pellets. I’m gonna put this on it, and I made it so it’s super soft on the top. You’ll see but I put velcro on it and everything. I’m really proud of it really I’ve been working really hard. And I’ve been taking care of the kids, and I’m doing things. I’m getting places, but it just doesn’t look like it. You know like that’s why I was frustrated, and I was thinking what have I done today? I feel like they haven’t gotten anything done. It looks terrible in the house like it looks awful, but then I’m like. Okay well, I did wash two entire couches. It’s a disaster. It looks like it’s a disaster in there. But it’s only because the cushion thing covers are drying and I’ve got a lot done. I really have, oh when I fixed a zipper on one of the cushions like this sewing machine, so I’ve been doing a lot of stuff, but even I’m doing a lot. I’m trying out done. I still need to get ready for the day. What should I do with my hair? Like I just want it down, but it’s a little bit crazy. Headband, where’s the headband? So I know I don’t get dressed up very often, and I have a reason for that it’s because I end up spending most of the day here just at home with the kids and my clothes get dirty and nasty . And because I’m just working and cleaning and changing diapers and whatever. So I end up just wearing comfortable clothes all day because that’s uncomfortable. Have I mentioned what time it is? I think it’s close to four. Wanna see how close to four it is? This was a guess by the way. 3:59 That was a good guess. The only reason that I am able to even work on getting ready right now is because Charlie and Ellie are both taking naps. It’s four o’clock and barely getting my makeup done. It’s almost like why even do it. So I was gonna ask you guys. Do any of you have your most important thought-provoking thoughts at the end of the day? Right when you’re trying to go to sleep because that’s exactly what happened to me last night. Like right as I was falling asleep. Right when I was almost there. I thought… What would most improve my life? At this time like with cleaning my house because I really struggled cleaning the house while nursing and having so many other projects going on in things And I know they’re just excuses but I just have been going a million miles an hour in so many different directions that I don’t feel like I focus enough time in one area. Like today like I got so much done. But it doesn’t look like it at all. Anyways I was laying down and this thought came to my mind. And it was in high school and college. I had a really clean room. Like I kept my room perfectly clean almost all the time. I couldn’t even do my homework if I didn’t clean my room first so I always had a clean room. I always had homework not always I guess there were some times where I didn’t have it clean. But I kept it pretty clean most of the time. Then when I got married I gave up. And it was because I realized that like Michael had a part in whether my room was clean or not and I didn’t want to like force him to clean up his stuff. So I just kind of like stopped worrying about it so much, and now I’m like Why didn’t I do that? I should have stuck with it. And I should have tried to keep it clean. Because now I’m struggling to figure out a way to get back into that habit. You know so this is what I was thinking last night that occurred to me. And it occurred to me that I had kind of given up on trying to keep my room clean. I heard a study that when you try to teach your kids to clean that it doesn’t really matter when they’re young whether you teach them to clean or not. What really matters is if they see you keeping your room clean and having your room stay clean you know and then they’ll just kind of emulate whatever you do. I thought to myself last night. I’ve got this and then I was like I should challenge myself to keep my room clean for like a month so Michael cuz I’m not you’re not here to talk to about this right now. Why don’t we do that? Why don’t we try and Keep our room clean for one month and see if it has any impact on our kids and like what they end up doing with their room. Because it’s easy to be like well, we have a huge messy room here. We have good excuses for it, but you go clean your room. You know it’s hard, so… So Michael are you down? Are you down? Okay… I’m gonna do some mascara maybe I can do it. Mascara is not that hard. I can’t believe I haven’t had any kids come in here this entire time. I’ve been talking to you guys. Probably just jinxed it and they’re gonna be in here in just a few minutes. I love my kids. Even though it’s hard to take care of my time. Do you see that? So the fog here where we live is really really big. That’s so bad right now. It’s like hard to drive. The camera is picking up more than my iron. We’ll just drive through this camera. The camera right now can see double. I think it see double the length is twice as far as I can see. That is incredible. I’m super excited. Sometimes you juts have to go to McDonald’s play place and let them run wild. You just have to. And they’re having a great time too. Look at what she’s eating. Hamburgers and chicken sandwiches. I know I’m eating unhealthy today. Is that yummy? Becca was saying this had been the unhealthy she’s eaten in a long time. Like over a month. Yeah it’s been a while, huh. This is a pretty good play place so pretty good size. And didn’t you say this is a place used to play on the when you were a kid? yeah this is was I think this is the first McDonald’s I ever went to. And there used to be a ball pit over there. Yeah I just remember when we all came here for my birthday. When you come here on your birthday so the ball pit was over in that corner over there. There’s James climbing up those stairs. And Corbin right there. Are you having a good time? Yeah, okay go play. See James… And Ellie found some random kid’s food. And there’s Corbin. She’s waving at them. Charlie he’s been a good boy. Yeah he is. He’s been a very good boy. He’s looking forward to his hamburger flavored milk later tonight. So McDonald’s was really fun. We had a great time. Really with all reason we went was the kids just needed a place to run around for a little while. And get all their wiggles out and they had a great time. It was actually really crowded there. I was surprised how many people were there. I was not expecting it to be that crowded. Kids have fun. They always do. Thanks you guys for watching today’s vlog. I hope that you liked it, and we’ll see you tomorrow pause the game.
