15 minutes before J’s playdate arrived yesterday, I worked a miracle by vacuuming my downstairs (you know, sort of), picking up all the random things my dog had chewed and strewn about the house, dumped all the toys in random bins, and wiped down all surfaces with Clorox wipes. 5 seconds before the mom and the son walked in the door(literally-J said they were pulling in the driveway!), I ripped all of the food for lunch I had invited them for out of the grocery sacks and placed it prettily on the table, so I looked prepared. She told me my house was very clean, and the lunch was delicious. Fooled yet another one!
We spent the weekend at my mother’s house, where she provided clean towels, clean sheets, and 2 days of delicious, nutritious meals that I did not have plan, shop for, or prepare. And DH wondered why I dallied about coming back home.
When we got back home, J crawled into bed in the early dawn and said, “It’s so great and wonderful to be back in our own house.” Well, ok, that made up for having to go back to feeding him myself.
The last 3 medical bills that have come in have said, “Patient Owes: $0″. That’s a much better sum than the last one, which read, “Patient Owes: $650″. Yowza.
Last week it snowed, hard. J was elated.
20 minutes later, the sun was out, and the snow was melted. Momma was elated. (I mean, we’ve already missed a White Christmas. Why bother with the stuff now?)
So we’re tallying up the happy things today. Somehow it makes the day just that much brighter.
And for those of you who have snow up to your eyeballs, it sounds like you need all the brightness you can get!
