Closing Time...

The house is quiet...

all 6 have had a bath...

all 6 are snoozing...

these little legs are resting up for more runnin' around tomorrow...

 
I'm listening to Lincoln snore through the monitor...

it's time for all of us to refuel for tomorrow...

my kitchen is closed for the day...


this mama can barely form a thought...

(as you may be able to tell by reading this post)

so I'm going to sit back and watch old re-runs of Golden Girls in the same work out clothes I put on this morning...

(because they are comfortable not because I actually had time to work out today like I had planned)

(or yesterday)

(or the day before that)

while these little curls get their beauty sleep...


I have this new rule...

that states that mom will not do any house work after 8pm...

when those sweet little bodies go to sleep, I sit and enjoy the quiet, read some blogs, or maybe watch some of my favorite shows...

so the laundry from today waits for me at the top of the stairs - and will wait there till morning...

(or maybe the morning after that depending on how laundry-focused I am tomorrow)

so that's it...

I know this is insanely exciting...

try not to envy my wildly adventurous life :)...

it's almost midnight...closing time in this savvy house...you know, for at least a couple hours :).

This post made me feel all relaxed for some reason! :)

Marva said...

I agree with Marcella! I also felt all relaxed reading this! LOL *pm on is mine and hubby's time. Usually he watches tv and I am on the laptop but we are cuddled up together...no less. The hours I work and all and trying to use to this new life I am in the bed by 9 or 9:30pm though.

Hope you have a great day!

If it makes you feel better it's just me and my hubby and my nice, clean, folded laundry is sitting at the top of our steps too :) I can always put laundry away another day!

The only housework I do while kids are sleeping is possibly folding laundry while watching trashy tv shows! :)

I like your new rule! I may enforce that at my house :)

Sarah said...

I like your rule. I should make that rule.

Beana said...

That is pretty much how hubs and I roll too! Sometimes I feel guilty or that I should use that time to get stuff done or have a hobby (besides the computer!) but as the kids get older (mine are 7,4, 2) I hope I'll have more energy after they are in bed.

I love your rule! I hope you are enjoying your little boy!!

The only housework I might do is ironing {but only what I absolutely have to... ie MY clothes :)} in the evening, but most times I don't..... I sit my weary old butt down and catch a break.... I deserve it {and so do you!!}
