Working Hard...

working hard
working hard

hardly working


... or hardly working. I refuse to leave for our camping trip tomorrow without having the house in perfect order. I am not coming home to a mess. So today I am wound a little tighter than usual. I thought for my own sanity and the safety of the kids I should take a break and write a quick post. De-stress a little, if you will...


OK, I've had a couple of cookies, got my heart rate back down to normal and can almost take a deep breath again. Hold on... doorbell.


You're not going to believe this, but my neighbor just came by with her two kids and asked if my kids wanted to ride bikes. Are you kidding, OF COURSE THEY DO!!!!! YIPPEE!


Thank you , God. See he really doesn't give you more than you can handle. And if He does, He immediately corrects it, by sending a neighbor to the rescue.
*Seriously, the doorbell really rang while I was writing this post.

The "hard workin" and "hardly workin" made me laugh. Very sweet pictures...and I am the same way...I hate leaving the house for anything, but especially a trip with it messy....coming home from a trip (and even more so camping) brings a mess, who wants mess on top of mess??

Have a wonderful trip - will be praying for you all! xo
