It hasn't been ALL fun and games since they left yesterday morning. No siree. I've been a busy, busy girl. The entire house is now spotless - it's heavenly. I'm enjoying the pristine condition while I can because I know as soon as they return they will bring with them dirty laundry, noise, mess and general chaos.
But for now? Listen......nothing but silence; except for the tap, tap, tapping of the computer keys.

I also saw a recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cupcakes. They look sinfully good. This is one that I may actually have to try, you know, in my bid to keep Man-Child closer to home when he heads off to college this fall. I think these might actually keep him around. Or at the very least, will make him want to come home every other weekend.
Thank you so much for all your kind comments on the last post. I'm feeling a bit better and more in control at the moment. Sometimes, I just get overwhelmed by it all. It's nice to know that you are here with kind words when I need to let it out. True friends, that is what you are. xo
