Well, the house was clean...for a little while. I swept and mopped and vacuumed and dusted. There's nothing like having guests arriving to ramp up my motivation. I was even able to repair the pool and the kids are enjoying it. Now I'm trying to keep the house from getting too sticky and in disarray. They will be staying all week.
Tomorrow we are celebrating Labor Day at my house with Mexican food and ice cream sundaes. I think hot dogs and hamburgers are the usual menu but we don't have any barbeque-ers in the house at the moment so burritos and tacos are easier.
Today we briefly went to the mall because one of the teenagers wanted to buy a pair of jeans. I haven't been in a mall in a long time and I don't miss it. All that over-priced clothing and accessories made me want to go thrift store shopping. Maybe we will do that later in the week.
