A Little Guessing Game

This afternoon I took these photos of the messes of the day around the house. See guys, it really does get messy over here. Really!!!! I refrained from having the kids help me tidy up after lunch in favor of Mommy having a much needed rest on the sofa this afternoon. I was so proud of myself. Usually, I get the younger two down for naps and then do everything else before I rest. And, of course, then there is never time left to rest. So today I rested first. But it only lasted a short while. I couldn't rest. No. The little ones didn't wake. Nope. Jacob and Nicole playing quietly and asking little questions didn't bother me. No, not even thoughts of evening plans and duties. It was the mess. Every time my eyes would open a bit, it annoyed me. Go figure. Yes, I'm weird.

So let's play a little game. See if you can correctly identify what thing(s) all these photos have in common. What is a part of each little messy spot? The winner gets, well, I don't know. Just have fun!

Kitchen table

Even the washer and dryer

Well, I am awake now. And as soon as I type and publish, it's time to tidy up.

My guess is books too. Imagine. I don't think I ever saw your house so messy. Mine is actually cleaner today. And that is a miracle in itself!!!
