When You Give A Mom A Bedroom Set

When you give a mom a gorgeous, to die for, brand new bedroom set (pictures coming soon..very soon), she is going to want to vacuum the room floor to help the room feel even more new and fresh.

While she is vacuuming the room, she looks at ALL the carpet and the carpeted stairs and decides to vacuum the house.

That was great!! Cleaning does happen that way for me too! Hours later....you come back full circle and finish what you began. So funny. by the way, that was a heck of a lot of cleaning. No need to work out today! You did it already.

I love the book, "If you give a moose a muffin" and "if you give a mouse a cookie". If you give a mom a vacuum, WOW!!! You get a clean house!!! WAY TO GO!!!

Becky, you are awesome! It is so fun to read your blog and feel connected with you and Ben and your sweet family. Next time you visit your family let us know, we would love to see you. I ran into Hodaka at the movie store the other day and he asked how you and Ben are doing. It was fun to run into him. We keep wishing we were closer to you guys because we have so much in common. We have been watching TV series the last couple of years and it seems like right when we were watching 24 you were too, I thought, "Oh too bad we can't watch together." And we just recently started watching Lost and it seems like you did too. Things like that make me miss not being closer to you. Thanks for keeping in touch! Have an awewsome day! Jess

Awesome post! I just close my eyes or turn the other way when I see something that needs to be cleaned. Way to be thorough!

That happens to me all the time. You start one thing and notice everything else that needs to be done. I could clean 24-7 and my house still wouldn't be as clean as I'd like it to be. Good job, looks like you got it all done. And while you were babysitting? Amazing. (thanks again for watching Isaac ALL freaking day. I think I owe you 5 popcicle sticks!)
