The kids don't go back to school until Monday.
They have spent the vacation technologically stimulated.
Movies, computer, more movies,
and every now and again, a game on mom and dad's Nintendo DS.
This morning I told them no technological distractions until they cleaned up some of the after-Christmas/New Years chaos.
It was a good plan.
It just wasn't enough.
They were supposed to clean the whole house for me.
I'll settle for their bedrooms, and their end of the house being relatively liveable again.
