My husband and I arrived home late last night, and today has been spent running errands (mainly picking up our daughter from camp, an hour away) and doing laundry. I finally have a chance to sit down at the computer. We had a great week, even though the weather didn't cooperate very much. What does the weather matter when you're with your honey?
I was able to get our house fairly clean before we left, at least the clutter picked up and dishes washed. Our bed was made when we got home at 9:30 last night, ready for me to turn back the covers, and the bathroom and kitchen were clean. On the way home, we decided no matter how tired we were that we would unpack everything before we went to bed. So Wes sorted through the food and put it away while I went upstairs and unpacked our toiletries and suitcase and sorted our dirty clothes. When we got up this morning, everything was where it normally is, which made it easier to ease back into our morning routine. Laundry was easy to start, since the clothes had already been sorted. The best part of all is that it only took us about 15-20 minutes working together! Then we were free to get ready for bed and unwind from a day of traveling.
We traveled for 2 1/2 years for our ministry before we moved here. We were away from home for weeks at a time, sometimes months. I was a FlyBaby during that time. There were times I had things under control, but many times I'd leave the house a mess to return home to. I hated that! So now, I try to make sure to at least have things picked up, beds made, and bathrooms clean, so that we come home to welcoming beds and bathrooms. It sure makes coming home after a long trip much more enjoyable!
I hope to get back to posting early next week. August will be a busy month for our family, and then school starts the first of September. Busy is good!
