disaster zone

it is right now 7:54 am monday morning.
I got up early (er) and went on a bike ride. (yay, me!)
now I am sitting at my computer, and smelling a yucky banana smell,
and trying desperately to avoid the disaster zone that is my house.
you know,
when no spot is clear. - any flat surface is covered with stuff. counters, dressers, floors, tables. everywhere
you have to walk around stuff everywhere.
(and hold your breath at some spots- like when you are on the computer and smelling old bananas. yuck.)
the kids are all still sleeping. And I will keep it like that as long as I can.
and then hopefully I can enlist them in the fight against mess.
(but only if I have a big reward at the end. I know how my kids roll.)
or it might be easier to send them downstairs or outside and tackle it myself.
(yes indeed, I know how my kids roll.)
I was wondering if I should get started before they wake up,
but I think I will enjoy the calm before the storm!

We live in the same house! I feel comforted now that I know someone else feels my pain. I'm trying to muster up some energy to get cleaning before Fall sets in.
