Pick Up Sticks

Did you ever play the game pick-up sticks as a kid? Try doing it with a 48 ounce box of spaghetti right outside the hall closet door (2 shelves of the hall closet serve as my pantry) which is right across from the room where the 2.5 year old is napping, about an hour before your first potential house buyer is due to come for a look at the house.

Stressed? Who, me? Why? All I have to do is keep the house in perfect condition for 2 hours and convince the half pints to go along with the plan. Why would this stress anyone out?
