Monday & Such

Happy Monday!  I've had a really great, productive day.  For those of you who might not know much about me, I love productivity!  It's right up there with Godliness to me.  (Yes, I am kidding, but not about the productivity part.)

I told all the boys yesterday that today was going to be a day for cleaning the upstairs and the downstairs.  And putting away all the piles of laundry.  :-)  And their sweet little selves did a lot of work to help me.  They completely cleaned the upstairs...including their bathroom (and for some reason, the only word I can think of when I describe that little space of horrors, is GRODY).

While they were upstairs, I worked on laundry and the downstairs.  I wasn't planning on mopping today because of all the rain in the forecast (rain+dogs=big, fat mess), but when I saw all the dusty paw prints, I decided I couldn't stand to stare at those.  Graham offered to do it for me.  I happily obliged. 

I love helpful kids.  The more helpful and gentlemanly they are, the better husband they'll make someday.

My sweet Graham also offered to grocery shop with me.  I told him how much I appreciate him always willing to come with either me or Todd and help us.  I don't know if it's to "help" so much as it is to just be alone with us.  Either way, we are both thankful for any alone time with any of our boys, and we'll take whatever we can get. 

I'm back home now (obviously).  My house is clean, candles are burning, groceries have been bought and put away, my menu for the week is planned and all is well with my world. 

I feel like I can relax for the rest of the day.  Especially because dinner is simple tonight, with a pretty quick clean up. 

How has your day been so far?  I am praying for all of you who read this.  Love to all!
