Working from home, I generally slack in the housekeeping department. There are always other demands that seem more urgent. But I want you to know that I mopped the kitchen floor last Wednesday. This is a major accomplishment for me. The two types of housework I hate the most are cleaning the shower and mopping floors. On Halloween I decided that I had been disgusted with the floor long enough, that I'd had enough of black feet after walking around the kitchen barefoot. It had been so long since I'd cleaned the floor that just mopping was not sufficient. I had to get down on my hands and knees, Cinderella style, and scrub for (gulp) over an hour to get the floor looking good.

As if overtaken by some alter-ego, I also cooked today. I'm usually only good for about one meal a week, at best, otherwise it's cereal or burritos for dinner. After sending Dan on a late-night Walmart run last night to get poster board for Lily's Star of the Week poster, I called and asked him to pick up a roast. I cooked it in the crock-pot with potatoes, carrots, and onions and topped it with a mixture of 1-can cream of mushroom soup, 1-can cream of celery soup, and 1-can beef broth (or 2 bullion cubes dissolved in 1 3/4 cups water). I have to say that it was about the best roast I've ever made. Amelia wolfed it down and Lily even ate hers!
