3. I took the kitchen garbage can outside and hosed it down.

4. I caught up on a week’s worth of Young & the Restless on my DVR.

5. I cleaned bathroom toilets, vanities, and tubs. The whole house smelled like Fabuloso, bleach, room deodorizer, and Febreze.

6. I read over the 45+ policies and procedures for the Summer Camp that The Deuce will attend this Summer.

I know, you’re so envious of our time alone.

See ya later,

    Yup that sounds about right! I have not been a night without mine yet as they are still small, but when they are taken out for an hour or two I shower, do laundry and clean lol. No rest for mommy’s!
