18 days to go!
My house is clean YAY!
I'm finished, through, done with cleaning my dirt (I know, 'clean dirt' is definitely an oxymoron). I don't care if I ever see another mop again. But alas, that's my business too, so that's not going to happen. At least I get paid for cleaning your dirt!
Life is good, but it would be better if Sunny were with us. I appreciate our friend letting us stay with her, but it's just not the funnest thing being in limbo like this. I just have to keep thinking beyond the next two weeks when we're together again and getting settled.
Grace had a little breakdown today while I was finishing up cleaning. She's trying to process all of this in her head. So much has changed just in the last couple weeks, and it's just a lot for a little gal to deal with. Anyhow, she has her little plastic wading pool on the back patio that we can't take with us. I'm talking the smallest, cheapo wading pool Wally's carries--not a big deal right? I offered it to the neighbor for their kiddo. Grace runs upstairs where I find her in the empty, echo-y bathroom crying--no sobbing. Then I have to go to the basement for something and come back up and can't find her. I go outside to see her starting to drag the cheapo wading pool down the 16 stairs sobbing the whole time. I realize she's having a meltdown and ask her what she's doing. She says, "I'm...sup, sup...putting it...hiccup...in the...sob, sob...car!" (Ya, like that's gonna fit in our already-packed car). If the situation weren't so pitiful it would've been funny. I tried to explain to her that we can just get another one when we get up there, then thankfully, had the presence of mind to realize that this was her way of processing. It wasn't about the teeny wading pool--it was much bigger. Her little heart was breaking some with the reality of everything going on around her. So I held her and let her cry for awhile and then said, "Hey, let's get a Frosty when we're done, ok?"
Amazing how the mention of ice cream just makes things all better!
So, that's the scoop! pun intended.
It's All Frosty Good!
