Is there a star in the sky?
...Because I think that I just witnessed a Christmas miracle, coming out of the mouth of my slobby DH.
Yesterday am, while attempting to pour creamer into my coffee, I realized that I couldn't lift my left arm without pain. These past few weeks of scrubbing have done a number on my old, out of shape bod. (Like the Karate Kid, 'wax on, wax off, OW!')
Sat down to drink it with DH and eventually the kids came downstairs. Dh looked at them and said "see how clean the house is? We're ALL going to help Mommy keep it this way".
*Plunk, thump*....(the sounds of Mommy falling over and fainting onto the floor)
I have no idea if that was just a meaningless stroke on my DH's part, but that is the FIRST time I've ever heard this coming out of his mouth!!
I have to tell you, getting up THIS am and loading all of the dishes into the dishwasher...and running a load of clothing and immediately folding them, it feels GOOD to be in a 'clean house'.
Yeah, sure, I still have projects for days, but the basics are ALL DONE AT THE SAME TIME. I cannot remember when I last experienced that. It certainly wasn't in this state!
And if I can actually get them to help me a little? Boy howdy, things are looking up...
