Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8

Strange Day...

It was a strange day for me today...I spent the whole day home, alone. I can't remember the last time this happened. My friend Rebecca had the girls all day. We exchange child care, normally for half a day. She needed me to take Eden a full day a couple of weeks ago and was repaying the favor today.

I spent the day getting some much needed house cleaning done. I am pretty good at keeping on top of the 'picking up' and looking presentable. It's the true 'cleaning' that tends to get lost in the dust :)

You know what I'm talking about, when you actually assemble the attachments on your vacuum and get the spots that get missed with the regular roller. When you actually reach high and stoop low to dust more than just the things at eye level. When you actually get on your hands and knees to clean floors in places that haven't seen a rag or mop in months. That was the kind of day it was. Well, at least for the morning. The heat took a toll on me by mid-afternoon.

After talking with two other mom's of preschoolers today, I found something very interesting. The consensus was that THEY would have spent the day just as I had or doing some other much needed chores, bills, etc. However, if the SPOUSES had the day to themselves, they would have been out playing!!

Well, it wasn't playtime for me, but there is enjoyment in a clean house, listening to adult music and working diligently for hours without a 'MOMMMMIE' interruption every 3-5 minutes. About 10:30 I did answer the phone to hear "Mommy.....Mommy....hey, Mommie" repeated times, but it was just Paul making sure there was some normalcy to my day!!
