The best gift!!

I got the best present ever this year! I got 3 hours ALL TO MYSELF to go to the house and clean without a single interruption!!!! We have been spending a lot of time down in Woodburn at my moms because all of my family have come to town. Paula and 2 of her girls, Haylee and Alexa, are flying in tonight, so I volunteered to run home to Vancouver so that I could grab a few things that we had forgotten and then pick up Paula on my way home. Will kept all the kids, including baby Roxelle, and let me go alone.

In 3 hours I was able to clean the entire kitchen, top to bottom, which was overrun by boxes, opened packages and new art supplies that the girls left out all over the counter and table. I picked up all the Barbie shoes and accessories that were strewn amongst all the chaos that was left in the living room and put all the gifts we'd opened back under the tree so that I could vacuum all the downstairs. Then I organized the nursery and the little girls room and vacuumed them and the hall upstairs. Now, all I have to do is straighten our bedroom and fold one of the 2 loads of laundry I had done yesterday and straighten up the office loft. Plus, I got an uninterrupted shower!

THANKS HONEY!!! You can give me that kind of gift ANYTIME!!!! Love you Love Smileys
