Yes, the laundry mountain was demolished, and in its place has grown another. Thankfully, I don't seem to have many dirty laundry mountains - mine are more clean, or worse yet, clean and folded. It's that last putting away step that does me in.
I've been crazy this week, and have one more day of craziness before we leave for vacation in California!! We're so excited to get away and to see our dear friends. I'm looking forward to chilling out as much as our active sons will let us!! For some reason they seem to like to play more than sleep.
Please pray for us as we travel, for the boys to do well, and for Aaron to miraculously get over his new-found cough in the next 24-48 hours. I have been trying to coax him back to sleep for the past 45 minutes - he's been sleeping horribly the past few nights, but for some reason the "your body needs to sleep to heal" argument doesn't go over well with a 3 year old. Yesterday, I was hoping it was allergies, but this morning I woke up with a sinus headache, so maybe it's a cold. It's no fun to fly with sinus issues, especially if you're little. And taking a sickness to someone else's house makes me feel horrible - maybe we can camp out in the back yard...er, back concrete.
So, just because I'm slacking off in blogging doesn't mean I'm slacking off in real life. Today is one more load of laundry, then get ready for my one evening only of ladies retreat, pack our carryons full of activities and snacks, and clean the house. Tomorrow morning we add our daily items to the suitcases and head out. I'll try to blog at least once in California. Maybe a Works of God Monday, finally? I'll work on it!!
