Everything looks a little better through clean windows. :)
Mama of Many Tip: When a child asks to clean, let him clean. It doesn't matter if it is perfectly done or conveniently timed. Take advantage of the help while they are offering. ;) Make sure you tell them how much you appreciate the help.
We've been doing a lot of cleaning. When I am feeling sad or angry (which I have had a lot of lately) I just get to work. The house is looking better by the day.
Since my parents are still here, Adam & I had the opportunity to sneak off for a pre-Valentine's Day date. We always have a lot of fun together. I'm really proud of how he is doing at work. I know this new position means he has a lot more responsibility... it takes away some of his flexibility and involves much more frequent travel... but the raise is much-needed.
It's nice to feel appreciated, no matter how old you are. :)
