That is what I am.

Tomorrow my Mom leaves and I am sad to see her go. I think she is more than ready. We haven't stopped working: sun up to sun down.

A lot of High ho Cherry-O

We did a lot more than I thought we could get done. Projects that I didn't even think about are done.

I appreciate her so much and all her hard work. I know she is tired but that didn't stop her from pushing on to the last minute before she went to be tonight.

I do everything for my kids, its interesting to watch what that translates into for the future. I felt guilty asking her to help but I think it makes a parent feel good to be needed.

I feel more peace in my lovely home. I filed our taxes tonight and feel blessed that the medical bills that are coming will be covered by the tax return that is coming.

There is still a lot to do. I don't think that will ever end. But for tonight I will crawl into a clean bed in my organized and orderly home and sleep well!

Thank you for making that possible Mom.
(Dad too for letting her come and for letting her spoil me)

I am glad she was able to come and help you. I felt bad for not knowing what to do to help. Let me know if there is anything I can do...

That's great that she took time out of her schedule to help you. It's so nice she lives close enough to be able to do that. You're pretty lucky to have such a wonderful mom!

It was just so nice to be needed after all these years. I have always loved to clean and organize. I came home and tackled my own office. UGH! I love you honey and so glad you have a new lease on life. We all need that once in a while.

Mommies are the BEST! I'm so happy your mom got to come be with you to help out:) Please tell your mom hi & that I'll never forget the kindness both she & your father showed me while I was staying with them.
