The past few days

On Wednesday, I called my best friend and asked nicely if she would be willing to come and help me with laundry. Bon has been trying to keep up with it, but when you get to a certain point, it just becomes overwhelming. We were way past that point. She came by and we folded clothes that had been washed and dried but not folded and I started actually putting them away. *gasp* If you know me at all...putting laundry away is the hardest part. I have no idea why, but I hate it. So it just sits. And sits. And sits. We worked on laundry all afternoon and into the evening. I don't know how many loads she has done. She came back yesterday to continue helping. I cleaned a little and another friend of mine (who is my best friend's sister-in-law) came over too, and she helped me clean too. It was so nice to have some cleanness around. Ryan stood on a stool in front of the kitchen sink and said "Why is the kitchen so clean?!" So thanks Anna! I'm still working on the last of the laundry today. I'd like to get it all put away and boxed away (things that are too small for the boys) so that maybe Bon will be a little less stressed when he comes home on Sunday.

And sometimes I think Ty might be my favorite. Seriously, this kid will eat anything I eat. Which is great to me, being in a house of somewhat picky eaters. I made some egg salad for lunch and he sat down beside me and shoveled it in faster than I was. All while saying "mmm..goo!"

Good friends are hard to come by. You are lucky that they love you so much. Bon needs to tell his boss that he needs to stay home a few days and help out his sick pregnant wife. You better get a moving package when you move to NC or start putting the idea in Bon's brain, it will be miserable for you.

Oh hun, I'm so sorry you are struggling but good for you for asking for help! I wish I did that more.

I'm so glad you are getting help! Nothing is worse than feeling horrible but wanting/needing to do things.
