Twenty-four Hours Later

By Friday night, I was pretty wiped.  I've been married-single mom ALOT lately, plus it's the crazy end of the school year.  I needed to clean and to work on a couple of school-related projects, but I forced myself to do the Friday Night Sew-In.  Glad I took that time out.  It cleared my mind and will hopefully bless others.  Unfortunately . . . this is the scene I woke to early Saturday morning: 
UGH!  What a mess!
Please note the juxtaposition of organic orange slices next to the McD's happy meal drink--I'm such a good mom!
I did spend Saturday morning "liesurely" cleaning up.  I didn't rush around.  I sipped my smoothie and coffee (another excellent example of juxtaposition between healthy & junk) between relocating mounds of papers.  I snacked before I mopped.  I read the paper before the counters got wiped down.  I did actually run a couple miles, picked up a my own child from a sleep over, and spent about an hour and half mowing 3/4 of the lawn that night.  My reward . . . I woke to this Sunday morning: 
This makes me happy!
I love before and after pictures.  (Notice I didn't post any before/after pics of the rest of the house--shhhhh!)I'm off to drink my coffee (a gift mailed to me by my mother-in-law's husband), read the paper, and enjoy the quiet in the house . . . before we all trash my clean kitchen and start the process over again.

  1. Lovely pics....I liked the 'after' one. Nice work on getting the miles in, as it seems like you are crazy busy! Are you training for a race?
