I’m back. Whew!
My husband and I went on a 4 night cruise celebrating my in-laws 60th anniversary. It was a great time of being together, but I still feel the waves! As I sit here, I can feel the boat rocking, even though I’ve been off the boat since about 9am this morning!
My fabulous mom stayed with our three kids. They had a great time, but I am so glad to see them, and we’re all happy to be back together. My mom did a fabulous job of keeping the house in order, and even put the kids to work with new dusters.
I must say that having someone clean your living quarters twice a day is great. They cleaned once in the morning and then straightened up again in the evening when they turned down the bed. Is there some way to get someone to do this in my home?
Oh yeah. That’s me.
It’s back to the daily task routine for me, starting now. My mom did a great job of keeping things orderly, (she’s always been great at this) and so we just get to keep on going from here.
Tomorrow we’re going to spend the day putting up Christmas decorations. I’m so excited because it seems like this year, there’s a point. In the past, I never felt like the decorations had their rightful place of honor because of the clutter. And I don’t have to spend an entire day cleaning before I start decorating. AND we can take pictures of the kids decorating without having to be careful of what clutter is in the background.
A picture of the kids drinking hot chocolate in front of the fire is just not as meaningful if there’s a pair of dirty undies hanging off the fireplace tools.
