"Back" To Work

Jason is back in school, as of this week back to working full time at the office, and the boys are in basketball. My poor body still feels so week and helpless. Since I’m still not allowed to bend or twist, my sweet SIL, Bonnie, came into town to help me get my house back in order.

She brought her son as a play date (diversion) for Drake. All went well considering Drake hasn’t had to share his own toys with a friend in over 2 months. They were darling together when Drake did share and it was so much fun to have him in our home.

Bonnie certainly rolled up her sleeves over the weekend. She did all our laundry, grocery shopped, took the boys to the playground a couple times, and helped me organize my home.

I wish I had thought ahead and taken a before picture. Then you would realize how impressive this really is. We boxed up lots of toys and put them in the attic for rotation later.

For the first time since Thanksgiving, my game room is just how I like it. {{evil laugh}}

Bonnie did all the work! She not only picked up all their toys, etc. but cleaned out their closets as well.

I can’t thank her enough for taking so much stress off of me. I’ve been wondering how on earth I was going to get my house back in order and not hurt myself in the process.

I still have labels to make for Christmas toys and several bins to put in the attic so it’s easier for the boys to clean their own rooms. However, their rooms haven’t looked this nice in over 2 months and I couldn’t be happier.

Thank you so much Bonnie for knowing exactly what I needed and being willing to work so hard. We had a great time together and it feels so good to live in an organized home again. {{relief}}
