"I need to sprayed"
I am so super excited because this has been a pretty cool week so far! It started with my wonderful sis, Angie, and our friend Emily coming into town to clean...ok DEEP CLEAN...our house. I will admit that I have not kept a house that I am proud of. But now its nice to be able to look around and see through things and be able to eat off the floor again (ok don't worry we don't really eat off the floor!)
They scrubbed every inch of this house and didn't complain about it once! And if that wasn't awesome enough the girls didn't do this because they expected anything in return, or to hold it over my head for years. They did it because they love me! And Laila girl helped as much as she could! She sprayed the windows, she sprayed the table, she sprayed the floor, she sprayed Angie, she sprayed the counter, she sprayed the oven...I feel I don't need to go on, you probably got the gist of her favorite chore. But she really did work her tail off making sure to be like a big girl and help. (She did clean walls and floors to...and cried because she wanted to "wash the house" even more!)
I am not sure if this is a first step in my accepting help of not. And really not even sure if I want it to be. No let me state that one differently, PART of me doesn't want it to be. One side knows its ok and good and the right thing to do to accept the help which is offered up (and this was huge for me to let these girls do this!) but the stubborn part doesn't want to admit that I need that help yet...or at all! But hey I am working on it!
So girls, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for driving all night, letting Laila wake you up both days early, spending all day cleaning, taking me for hot chocolate and Culvers, and making me laugh and smile the entire time! (Emily, she asked me if I could get that car game on my phone with "the spinner things like this (as she shows me how to spin it!)) Next time you come I hope that it can be all fun!
I get my PICC line out on Thursday (I am literally counting the hours down) and so very excited to feel the blood rush back into that part of my arm. And then to be able to use my arm again. I am feeling pretty darn good and am hoping this clean house will help me stay feeling so stellar. Let's hope this great week keeps up!
PS: I got my Hyer Images photos back tonight! GEEKED! Here is a little sneak peek:
