Can't talk. Cleaning.

I'm taking a break from the near-constant crocheting of booties (interrupted only by breaking up kid fights) to clean the house. I'm sending the kids away to the neighbors for the day. They're not too thrilled with that, but too bad. There are several library books and videos missing in our house, and damned if I'm going to pay for them.

The task ahead is daunting. I look for things to compare it to, but all I can think of is the Augean Stables (do they still study the Greek myths in school, or have they cut that out yet?) Too bad I don't have a couple of rivers at my disposal, or one of those keen lion skin capes.
