A Happy Home

This has been the longest week ever.
My little Hot Rod was sick.
Then I got sick.
Then my Shane got sick.
Now I'm looking around at a neglected house.
Instead of getting to sprucing things up I'm browsing blogs.
I did open the windows to let fresh air in while I browse.
Does that count for something?
I keep trying to motivate myself that I'll feel so much better if I can get it together around here.
But the truth is, I still don't feel 100% great.
The boys and I went out back today to play in our very own mud pit.
My 4 year old loves to bring me the tiny purple flowers.
My 5 year old put a worm on my shoulder.
I freaked out and am pretty sure he won't do it again.
My 1 year old enjoyed a mud mask on his face.
We had a snack of apples and peanut butter.
They came in and got a bubble bath.
I combed there hair and they climbed into their soft pj's.
They are all cuddled up on my white bed with clean sheets.
The fan is on and it makes for a very good nap.
The breeze is blowing my curtains which is nice.
I think I'll go light a candle and show my house some love.
Thank you beautiful Pottery Barn candlesticks for motivating me to...
toooo...
tooooooooo.......
think about how nice it is when everythings clean and tidy.
There is nothing like a Spring day with open windows to make a person feel better.
Maybe I'll cook something extra special for dinner tonight.
Right now I'm off to turn on some music and light a candle...and maybe lay down again.

Aw, I'm so sorry to hear that you've been sick.
Take your time and just rest with the boys. The housework will always be there. Always.

Love the candlesticks, by the way... trying not to covet ;)

Open windows are nice. I like fat candles. I made a spicy roast the other day (which tastes delicious), but Dave said it made the house smell weird. Hmmm...have to remedy that. Here's a link you will LOVE!!!
