Mondays Muttered Mumblings

One of the advantages of marriage is that usually both spouses don't hit behavior extremes at the same time. This is often the case with cleaning at Boy Home, no were not talking loading the dishwasher or throwing a load of jeans in the washer. Were speaking manic, furniture rearranging, back of the closet, cleaning. On occasion one of us might walk to the edge of the, throw away every item not currently in use, death to dust bunnies, abyss;but usually the other of us can talk them down before something gets hurt, yes sexual favors and chocolate are acceptable negotiating tools.

Not today, dust bunnies, closets, be afraid! Be very afraid!

And, remember awhile ago when Octamon did that cool post on the eye colors inherited by her 8 little darlings, this is my best efforts. It's a little blurry because I didn't have my glasses on when I took it... or maybe it's that I'm a lousy photographer.

I choose this one because it makes me look about 16 thanks to the out 'O control bangs covering the wrinkles and the lovely pimple on my chin.

There are only two eye colors in our family, Adorable Hubby has the deep, almost navy, blue seen here on #6, which he shares with all his sons except #5, on the left. #5 and I share blue, green changeable eyes kinda like mood rings.

Here are a couple more, because my boys are so very cute!

Hey, I have a matching pimple at the moment! And yes, it does make you look 16... Only if you say I look 16 too ;)

I had thoughts of tying my boys to a chair to get photos of their eyes then I decided it just wasn't worth the effort for a post I would probably forget to finish.

Forgot to say... haven't heard of that law but them NZ folk are a bit odd:) Surely it can't be that hard to chase up a copyright accusation? Ugh, New Zealand, when will you realise Australia is just better at everything.

Thanks for your sweet comments:)

HEY! I want to see some dust bunnies shaking in their boots over here. Instead, I think they are throwing a party and taking over. So sad, so true! Why is it again that we don't live on the same street, or in the same state for that matter?! You need to inspire me to climb out from under the piles of laundry to attack the other needs in my home.

But, I do love me some spring cleaning when the timing is right...

I've attempted "eye color" pictures before, too ... and yours are better.

Sexual favors for cleaning help - FABULOUS idea!
