I will spare you the details.
I will only share that there have been
new revelations as we have been
cleaning our home for Daddy's homecoming.
(and the above photo is the only detail I'll share) ;o)
So far we have paid bills and grocery shopped;
cleaned, washed, swept, scrubbed,
dusted, organized, disposed of items, etc...
in the living room, reading room, dining room, kitchen
and we have cleaned the children's bedrooms, too.
I discovered that my baseboards and floors
are not a natural brown-gray color;
floors are cleaner when you wash them by hand;
my computer desk let out a sigh of relief
when I eased it of its great, numerous "burdens";
our home looks much nicer when we can actually see
all of the flat surfaces it has to offer;
books are much more handsome
when neatly placed on the shelf
(and are more easily accessible);
we do have clothes to wear and socks that match
when we pair them up and put them away;
and dust bunnies are in NO way good pets.
Tomorrow we will continue and finish
with all of the bathrooms and the master bedroom
(and chisel away at the last bit of Mount Washmore... woo hoo!).
We, also, hope to hang Daddy's sign up tomorrow
since we didn't get to the other day.
Thank you for those that were praying for us to feel well.
The children are feeling well now, only exhausted noses
that seem to be running marathons. ;o)
Thank you all, too, for your comments.
I would love to respond to everyone
(and I plan to when I am able)
but am afraid it may take a while
and could be a slow process... but I will get to it. ;o)
Thank you for understanding.
Also, thank you, thank you for praying for our Marine.
We sure appreciate your prayers for his safe travel.
Though I am not at liberty to share
exactly when he will arrive... it will be soon.
We are eagerly awaiting our reunion!
Hope y'all enjoy your weekend!
"Praise the LORD; for the LORD is good:
sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant."
