Before I return to work next week, I have to have things in order at home. I don't function well at work if I've left things undone at home. I'm weird like that. I don't ever travel, even if it's just an overnight trip to Dallas, that I don't clean and organize the house. Like I said, I'm weird.
Since I left for my second trip to Oregon the same day Daughter returned to her home, I hadn't had the opportunity to put her room and bathroom back in order. Not that she left it a mess. I had to, you know, change sheets, scrub the toilet, clean the tub, clean the floor, all the stuff that goes with getting a room ready for the next guest...whomever that might be.
Here is the before:
and after of the bedroom
Now that this has been taken care of, I have a sense of calm and can return to work somewhat stress free. I say somewhat because I'm a natural stresser...is there such a word as stresser, if not there should be for those of us who have to have something to stress over.
I had the opportunity to be a surrogate granny today to this lovely little girl. Claire. Isn't she sweet.
Her mom and big sis went swimming at my in-law's pool. Since it's hotter than blue blazes around here, Claire's mommy thought it best that Miss Claire not be out in the heat. A wise woman Claire's mom, so I got to keep Miss Claire for an hour or so.
In that hour we laughed, ate, and slept. Claire ate and slept, I just laughed at her cute little laugh and expressions.
I wonder if that pouty bottom lip is an indication of things to come? Hmmm, mom and dad, beware!
