Lost keys, sugary marshmallow, and a discount

On Monday morning, the boys and I were ready to head out for a morning of fun away from the house, when I realized I couldn't find my keys. They were nowhere! I looked everywhere. I ran around through the mess that is our house (kitchen re-do, Spring cleaning of the wardrobes, attic finds for ebay auctions, papers and books for school, etc.), trying to find my keys.

I found them at 4 that afternoon, in the front pocket of the Snugli I wore for an afternoon walk with the boys last Thursday. It was on top of the washing machine. Of course.

With the extra time stuck in the house, I finally went through all of our clothes. There are still two piles left, but they are clearly marked in my head: consign and garage sale. I'm hoping to set up an appointment for consigning this week and put the rest outside at some point.

I also took more pictures of our attic finds for ebay. We've made several hundred dollars so far with our finds! I'm thinking we will certainly clear the cost of our kitchen re-do.

Still found time to take cute pictures of my boys:
Mommy wears me out when she loses stuff!

I like to lick the sugar off these marshmallows, and leave sticky, slimy yellow lumps for Mommy. She should have known better than to walk off and leave the opened package right there in front of me. She knew she was in trouble when she heard me say, "I'm licking all of them."

Interesting side note: Peeps yellow dye doesn't come out of khaki shorts very easily.

(There were more pics, but I can't seem to get them to load.)

If you are in the market for eco-friendly clothes for your kids, please check out this post. This is the green website I write for, and we're offering a 10 percent discount.

Glad you found your keys! One of my friends couldn't find her keys recently only to find them later in the afternoon..... in the TOILET!!! Thanks to her two year old. Glad yours were in an easier-to-recover place!
