Welcome to the Pre-teen World!

We successfully accomplished getting the house clean and grocery shopping finished tonight. I thought it was certainly necessary to make sure the toilets weren't growing anything around the rims, that we had at the very least picked up the items around the house that create our own personal obstacle course, and vacuumed the carpet.

We split up the tasks and went to work. In trying to keep Jenna motivated to get the vacuuming finished I was prodding her along and she had the audacity, gull, gumption, nerve, pre-teen loss of her senses to say to her wonderful mother, "why can't you do some of the vacuuming?" as if I was doing nothing of significance. I obviously am now entering the world of the pre-teen, the world where seemingly sweet wonderful children are becoming people, trying to find their own way. Wow!!!
