We rented a 'cabin' at a state park about a hour south of Nashville. It's in a perfect setting. Out in the country, quiet (even on the weekends). Of course having perfect fall weather and gorgeous fall colors we lived outdoors. We had a 'rustic' cabin. Which included: 2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen/dining (with all the essentials), fireplace/air. The 'deluxe' cabins, I believe have the same except 2 bathrooms, along with gas fireplace/central air.
On one of our many walks, the kids, much to my
John is into the * CHEESE * stage when it comes to taking pictures.We got home on a Thursday afternoon, to find a message that we had special company coming the next afternoon. I was impressed. Within 24 hours, I had unpacked, did laundry, prepared the guestrooms, grocery shopped/prepared meals, cleaned (or attempted to pick up with 4 little kids running behind me) Either way.. clean house or not.. we enjoyed our guests.
My looooong to-do list has been collecting dust on the fridge for quite some time. With Benji's party coming up, plus the possiblity of having Turkey day for a bunch the size of a small army. I decided enough is enough. So today I switched the kids bedrooms. Boys into girls room. Girls into boys room. The crib (which turns into a toddler bed) was previously in the girls room and needs to be completely taken down to move. It may have been easier to take down the crib and re-set it up. But I didn't. It didn't take as long as I figured, and I'm happy. Both rooms are CLEAN. ORGANIZED. And the kids are thrilled with their 'new' rooms. So maybe they'll sleep in tomorrow! :) Then I can keep crossing items off my list. (another item on my to-do list...quit wasting so much time on the computer)
