Cleaning anyone???

I am curious. How many times do you clean your house? I try to "deep" clean the whole house once a week. My definition of deep cleaning is dusting, vacuuming, toilets, showers, wash floors, wipe down all chairs and table, disinfecting all surfaces, clean couches, sinks, and some other stuff. Don't be fooled, it is rare if I complete all these things, it usually takes 2 weeks because I get lazy. It is getting much harder, the kids make big messes, especially Livie. We now are giving the boys allowance if they do chores each week. They have to make their beds, keep their room clean, vacuum their room and vacuum the stairs. If they do well they get 1 dollar every Friday. They get really excited when Friday comes. Boston has done awesome, almost a little crazy, like me, he won't let people get stuff out. We have to threaten Wes to do his chores, he just lets Bos do everything. It will be nice when Livie can clean, she spreads all of her toys throughout the house. She will only clean up if you help her, and by helping she means you end up doing it by yourself. Laundry is a whole different story called I hate laundry. I am SO lucky to have the amazing husband I have, he is such a big help with everything. And yes, I do clean in a dress and high heels, who doesnt?

See the Difference?

Here are two photos, one from my new Camerah and one from my small digital Pentax (which I still love). But you can see the difference in quality. Nice huh?

My new Camerah ^

Small Digital Pentax ^


For Christmas I was very spoiled by my husband. I have wanted a nice fancy camerah (do I say camerah funny?). I really wanted it but I knew it was too expensive for us to buy right now. Booth had me fooled, he would say things to make me think he didn't buy it. I can usually tell what he gets me for Christmas by the way the gifts are wrapped, so this year he put everything in one big box so I couldn't try to guess. Anyway, I was very surprised on Christmas morning by the Canon Rebel Xsi I wanted. It's really Rad!! The quality of the photos are fabulous. I am having lots of fun with it. Thanks Boother!! All he got was a robe and a BBQ brush... Wah Wah Wahhhhh. Poor guy.


I had to make a new blog since I wasn't able to figure out how to delete that stuff off of the old one. Please change to: www.jenson5.blogspot.com.
