The result of this was that the girls picked up almost everything on the floor and we have spent some time learning how not to crash the helicopter -- or fly it into the television!
This all served us in good stead this evening. Normally, we would be deeply enmeshed in cleaning up the house in preparation for the arrival of the cleaning lady tomorrow. But much of the effort is spent cleaning up the floor, which is mostly clean, other than the small pile of debris I swept up from all of the downstairs rooms. And since daisy_knotwise's back imploded again last night causing her to get little, if any, effective sleep, she has crawled off into bed to try to recover.
Or as she said, "Every part of my body hurts."
Yeah, that doesn't surprise me.
With luck, she'll feel better in the morning.
