T.v. free

My toilets are orange, about a month past needing to be scrubbed. I just noticed that the bottom foot of dining room curtains are--once again!--soaked in cat piss. Crabgrass is taking over the garden. Laundry continues piling up at an alarming pace. Sister and Bean are unbelievably resourceful in finding new things to argue over. (Who owns a particular loose dime, for example. Seriously.) The baby STILL won't sleep through the night.

Did I really just declare August t.v.-free month for us this morning? My hope is that this will improve the girls' behavior. (She explains weakly.)

Stay tuned for how long I hold out...

I think you should go back and pick more berries! LOL

Man, cat piss on the curtains? That cat would be BANNED from my house! There is nothing worse to me than a cat that won't use it's freaking litter box ALL THE TIME!

Hey, make the kids go pick weeds when they argue. Like, make them do it for five minutes at a time. Believe, they will learn REAL quick!

My kids argue over stupid crap too and they are older than yours.

Good luck with all that.
