I KNEW it was coming.............

THE TORNADO..........hmmm or maybe a hurricane called Jennifer. Bless my daughter's heart, she is a neat freak..........not just a tidier upper, but a true professional neat freak. There is no clutter, well not for long, in her home...................EXCEPT, for me and my room and my wee little space on the kitchen table, which I KNOW makes her quiver and shake when she has to look at it.............but an entirely different story there.
The "casual being " of the "toy room" has finally been ignored for as long as it could be......she attacked.
She started out with both boys, making piles for "donations to the children who would like these", " throw away" and "for baby Connor". Well let's face it, oldest grandson knew what was going on and he was semi-helpful (he has a tendency to think EVERY item of his, is his most favorite)........but he was doing better than he ever has and I was quite proud of him. Now my little 3 year old companion, well shoot, he had no idea what was going on........he was just thrilled with each and every new "find"




at the bottom of the toy box (which has been removed now and placed in his room).......so not a whole lot of progress has been made. Ok, lunch time, and now the youngest is down, and the armed forces have moved on to new territory.........oldest grandson's room........things haven't been going quite as smoothly there........some of the conversations being held in there...........well I wish I could say that she never heard those words from her mother.............but that would be a big ole' fib........

Now I am not sure when this whole process will be concluded, but I am thinking that Sunday dinner isn't going to be a roast, mashed potatoes, gravy, salad, veggie and homemade apple pie..............nope, think that this is going to be an on going into the evening type of attack

Me, well I haven't helped much........nope, I have grabbed a few things for myself..........like a couple of those squishy wishy stress squeezer thingies that I seem to be addicted to (and seem to hold the record for breaking).......and this absolutely to die for teddy bear that looks like he is made out of mink (faux of course)..........I have added some under the breath comments, a few "no, don't throw that out, we still play with that" and man my giggles and tee hees have gained some looks that even I had to admire...........if I can charge up the camera battery and this is the big one, IF I can remember to do it, I will take snapshots of the finished product.........trust me, it will be spic and span, nipped and tucked, and just plain amazing...............
