Tired...

Gordon and I have been working strong for 3 days on cleaning and organizing the upstairs where the kids have "free run". OMG-my kids are pigs!!! Not really, I love them to death, but really need to teach them about cleanliness. Yes, they take baths and wash their hands after going potty. They even brush their teeth. But when it comes to putting away toys or hanging up clothes, they don't get it! Gordon and I have been purging a ton of things. You would be amazed at how many broken toys or toys with missing parts we ended up throwing away. It has been three days and we haven't even gotten to Sierra's room yet. Holy crap! I might die of exhaustion before then.

On another note, the big, ugly, scary thing that I killed the other night turned out to be a Nutria. Look it up, they are ugly!And the really good news is, "where there is one, there is many!" Yee-haw, bring it on! I've got my shovel and I'm ready to do more Kung-Fu Panda whacking!!!

I looked up Nutria - holy big hairy rat! Here's a fun fact for you: one female can produce up to 150 young in 16 months and they appear to breed year round. Sleep tight!
