Ahhhh. That describes this weekend.
My hubby and kids, who I love to distraction have been visiting family (while hubby redoes their bathroom) all weekend. I think hubby was, understandably, concerned about leaving me home alone, but it has been so good.
My brain finally set me free Friday night and I woke up Saturday with the depression lifted and my thoughts clear for the first time in a month.
I have cleaned like a mad woman, doing every room except mine, including a deep clean of the girls rooms. I am pretty sure Sue has a fear that we will steal her clothes if she puts them down the laundry chute. The chute is maybe 10 steps from their room, but I found her clothes hidden EVERYWHERE. I kid you not. I found an entire hamper full of her clothes hidden.
And the rainbow loom loops. They are evil, pure evil I tell you. They were all over their desks, floor and closet. I wanted to just sweep those suckers up, but I am their supplier most of the time and that was my hard earned money all over the place. [No need for advice, I considered it long and hard and came to the decision to pick them up. I’m okay with that. They would be very easy to drop.] There will be discussions about how we need to pick them up more carefully and consequences laid out, but for today I picked up 17,000 loops. The thing I don’t understand is the quantity I found in their closet. There is no light in there, there is no way to actually use the looms in the closet.
We won’t talk about the petrified food I found in there…
But it has been awesome. I bought myself some yummy soup for my meals and treated myself to delectable ice cream items.
The quiet has been so good for me. So good.
I love my family to pieces but I think I will rent them out one weekend a month and stay home. There has to be some single lady that needs a temporary family, right? And it’s not exactly pimping them out…Survive til you Thrive!
