I don’t know about you, but I am EXHAUSTED!
Don’t get me wrong, I loved every single minute of it. My entire family was here. My brother who lives across the country in Colorado, my brother who goes to school in the Midwest, and both my mom and dad were here too! Everyone was here over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and then spread both before and after. Phew!
Since we live in one of the top tourist areas in the country, I was able to take them to many great places. Including the beach of course!
I spent a lot of time in the weeks beforehand getting the house ready. I organized closets, took trips to GoodWill dropping off items we haven’t used in awhile, and did thorough cleanings in areas I haven’t looked at in awhile. I thought about calling services like ABC Carpet and Rug Cleaning to scrub out our upstairs carpets and downstairs rugs, but I never did get that far.
The house WAS clean, but now that everyone has left, I need to go over it all again.
I need to find room for the new toys, games, puzzles, clothes, etc. Spoiled kids!
And the fridge? oh my we will be eating leftovers forever!
How was your holiday? Will you be cleaning and organizing too?
