Everyone knows that no matter what kind of rush you are in, no mother will leave the house messy. In the words of every mother in the universe, much to the chagrin of every child in the universe, "No one wants to come home to a mess!"
On today's checklist, the biggest, boldest To Do was Clean the House.
So we did. Bedrooms are clean, dusted and vacuumed. Dishes are done and sink is scrubbed. Windows are washed, floors cleaned. Bedding is washed, dried and beds are re-made. I know we will get it somewhat messed up before we leave, but all of the every-once-in-a-while jobs are done. . . except the bathroom. Tomorrow is Patches' bath and I will scrub the bathroom down after the grody dog is clean! I finished a bit of last-minute sewing on the fourteen shirts I altered (not an exaggerated number). There is one more load of laundry to do, then all of the clothes will be clean and ready for the great sort-n-pack (more about that tomorrow).
Justin picked up his graduation robes today and sent me a quick note to tell me so. His closing line said, "On to the future with Disneyland as the appetizer!!!"
Amen to that!
