We have implemented this new activity – “Project Sisyphus” aka picking up after ourselves and keeping the house clean. This is not something we are good at or have a knack for, but since we have our babysitter coming to the house every single day, it would be nice not to have a pile of dirty laundry/used dish/discarded toy/uncapped marker/read magazines/pile of mail sitting in the same place for 2 weeks. Of course, once this project was implemented, we were all grouchier because I would get upset if Vince ate his sandwich in the living room or if socks were left next to doors or any one of a million things I didn’t care about before. Don’t worry, I’m sure soon enough we will return to our messy ways, but hopefully not until all the guests leave after Christmas.

Sunday was the last day of the semester for Chinese school. There was a year end performance and potluck! Jeremy made yummy dumplings – with homemade dough!
