Eternal Sunshine in the Spotless Home

So how many of you do this? You sit around all day (okay not all day, we do have kids after all), blogging, emailing, and for me, surfing for homes in interesting cities, and then all of a sudden you realize it's 5 o'clock and the hubby will be home in about an hour. So you jump off the computer, still bleary-eyed, and scramble to clean the place up?

I do. I scramble big time. Throw a load in the laundry, set the stuff out for dinner, throw all the toys in the kids' room, make sure all the toilets are flushed, slap a little lipstick on, slide on those cute flip flops (the ones that give your legs a slimming little length, but are still casual enough and comfortable enough that's it's conceivable that you've been wearing them all day), and do it all at about 40 miles a minute. Yes? been there?

Yeah, me too. Then my perfect husband gets to come home to his perfect home filled with his perfect wife and children and well, it's just like eternal sunshine.

Ain't no one need to know what it looked like 60 minutes ago!

Yep, sounds very familiar. :)

Oh yeah. I can get an AMAZING amount of work done in an hour. I love that you admit to it ;)

I am stunned to find that I spend WAY more time than I think on this damn computer! There are too many blogs/sites/research/shopping for one mom to handle.

I need an intern to do my dirty work. Think you can scare up some hungry grad students for me? Think I can convince the university to grant them college credit for assisting me? Hmmm....
Great post, Kristi!

Works pretty good too, until the day they come home early and there's still marker on the wall and you're still in your sweats. OOPS!
