Another added, presumably joking, “I hope the whole house won’t explode if one of the kids presses it!”
“Nope,” I replied, thinking nothing could be worse than what the thirty children were already doing to my house in celebration of my twins’ fifth birthday. “It’s just a central vacuum cleaner port with a red ball stuck in it,” the handy work of one of my daughters a couple of years ago.
The central vacuum cleaner died long before we moved in, and I’ve often wondered how it would compare to the cumbersome portable we use to pick up the remnants of cheerios, animal crackers, and cheddar bunnies.
I hate vacuuming, and luckily, my husband does most of it. Other chores are mine.
This weekend, though, the house is tidy (considering how many kids live here!) and lunch and dinner are planned. So, I’ve got some time to do a little housekeeping on this blog (and visit other blogs):
- Fixing dead links, thanks to the short lifespan of some of the blogs and other websites I’ve referenced here.
- Claiming my blog on Bloglovin.com (let’s see if this works): Follow my blog with Bloglovin. What are you using instead of Google Reader?
- Replying to comments. I appreciate the discussions on this blog, and I apologize for disappearing for a few days. It’s been a very busy week offline.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
