Reason # 1....

...for keeping a somewhat tidy house AND for getting dressed by 9AM (at least out of the stained barn clothes that were randomly put on at 4:50AM). We side-tracked home-executives need to have these reasons presented to us every once in awhile.

1. DD might accidentally call 911, scream into the phone and hang up. The operator then might call back and not believe that everything truly is alright and he just might send the law enforcement to check on you. This very friendly law enforcement agent just might insist on searching your house to make sure that there is truly no danger lurking about.


If you have experienced first hand a good reason for "keeping a somewhat tidy home and getting dressed by 9AM", please share with me (either here or in your blog-let me know you did). Because as I said above, we side-tracked home-executives need to have these reasons presented to us from time to time. It really inspires one to persevere in their vocation. :)

"Dear" daughter? Yeah, I'll bet you were thinking "dear" at that moment. Which little "dear" was it? :-)

We had an accidental dial once, followed by an accidental hangup. Then the boys (all of them) were having gorilla time in the living room, while I hid down in the basement. When Steve didn't know EXACTLY where I was, the officer invited himself in for a chat and a search. Sigh...

All the more reason to be decent for sure! Did this really happen?!

I've found that the days when I actually lay out what I'm going to wear the night before, I am dressed earlier than other days!

Now that we live 5 minutes away from my mother-in-law, I've found all the more reason to keep a tidy house and have some semblence of order... Let's just say she drops by at random times, 'round the clock. *gulp*
