YAY! For No Housework Day

It's no housework day!  YAY for April 7th!
I was tickled to death last night when I put my grandfathers bed up in our "study".  I moved the desk and put it under the book shelves that are made from one of his old barns.  I cleaned it up and announced to the house, this is MY ROOM!  I also announced that if anyone wanted to sleep in my bed and watch Netflix on the computer they had to ask permission and be responsible for making the bed and cleaning up the room.  

I woke up to find that the bed had been slept in all night and they were thoroughly enjoying MY ROOM.

Now, since this room is spic and span and it seems to be the only room they care to help keep clean, the rest will have to wait and I'll just have to turn away visitors because of NO HOUSEWORK DAY!  I think we'll be pulling off some of those books we need to read again and spend a good part of the day playing and reading.  

What will you do instead of housework?


  1. LOVE that head board!!! Beautiful!!!

  2. I didn't know it was No Housework Day!! It is my oldest daughters EIGHTEENTH birthday...yes, I adopted her when I was 12. LOL

  3. 18? My oldest is going to turn 9 next month. I was just thinking that in 9 more years he'll be 18 and the first 9 have gone by WAY TO FAST. I hope she had a glorious birthday...

  4. Thank you! I wish I had the other bed to match it. I have always LOVED them. I'd love to inherit the matching chest-of-drawers and vanity. You just can't buy them like this anymore.

  5. Bummer! Missed that day! My house might look like a bomb went off if we did no housework with a 1yr old, 2yr old (adopted from Vanuatu), 4yr old and wild and woolly 6yr old! Kristy from the crafty healthy blog www.apronsandapples.blogspot.com
