See the clock? 10 after 4...Yes, this all happened in the same 35 minute time frame. Far from perfect, but what an improvement! Vacuuming, sweeping, toys flying everywhere... it was quite a sight! When I was done, I made dinner (well... I did make a salad and pop a frozen pot pie in the oven) so when The Masked Husband came in the door, he enjoyed his peaceful house and dinner rather than walking into chaos.
Swamp Thing is still camped out in my kitchen, and yes that massive pile of laundry is still sitting beside the couch taunting me, but I'll leave that battle for tomorrow :-)
