The cleaning fairy visited my house!
Jeff has this friend... he dogsits for us when we take a night or two away. They've been friends since 3rd grade. Our schedules haven't been meshing well lately so we don't see him as often as we'd like, unfortunately.
But he's a special friend. Whenever he housesits, he tends to want something to do while he spends time catching up on classic horror films and random sci-fi shows so he spends time doing laundry and cleaning our kitchen and doing our dishes and even cleaning up our living room. I love it! I've even offered to work out a deal where I would pay him to come and work his magic once a month.
I've shared on the blog and on Facebook pretty openly about my stress level these days. Work is insane, family life is packed, commitments are full. I've been incredibly stressed and housework has been last on the list of priorities.
Yesterday, I came home from a crazy, stressful Friday... the kind of day where I wanted to practice some primal scream therapy in the car on the drive home... and I walked in the door to this:
I know it isn't the "ideal clean" to come people. I almost wish I had a before picture to share so you could understand just how bad it was. Just how piled up and crazy it was.
The stress relief was immediate and amazing. I can't even tell you. Jeff wasn't home with the kids yet and since I had the place to myself... I literally jumped up and down and might have even cried a little.
Good friends can be hard to find and I am so blessed to have some truly wonderful friends in my life! THANK YOU BRIAN!
