7 YO: "Mom, do we have anything we have to do tonight?"
Me: "Nope, we are open tonight."
7 Yo "Oh Good, that means we can sit back and take it easy tonight."
He was not happy when that meant doing his 1st Grade math homework while dinner was bieng fixed. He wanted to play with his buddy across the street.

The the reception aftwards, the students served their mothers donuts and coffee. There was a gift bag at each place in eash bag was a lovely hand knotted small rosary (one decade size). The students made them. Along side was a sheet on how to pray the rosary. I am thrilled to pieces with it and will cherish it as much as I cherish my other Rosary that was the decoration on my First Communion cake.
Last Sunday we attended a First Communion party for my cousin. (When your Monther is second of 11 children, you have cousins close to the age of your children.) The same Aunt who made my cake made my cousin's. I told her that I still have my Roasary. She smiled.

So here are some of the pictures taken by our Realtor. First is the front of the house, the living room, the kitchen and the breakfast nook/dining area.
I have become obsessive about keeping the place clean and clutter-free. I am a piler. I have gotten rid of all of my piles. Last night I read a magazine and immediately put it in the recycle bin. It made me a bit sad. Silly I know, but I enjoy my few magazines. The tend to sit around for a few months.
And my kitchen counters. Oh, No bread sitting out, no dish drainer. I wash my pots, dry them and put them away. I have been enptying the dishwasher when DS12 is not available so i do not have to leave dished int he sink. I sweep my floors regularly. I miss my books sitting around just waiting for my to pick them up. I like to have a lot fo things going at once. I am afraid of starting something. What if we get a call and someone wants to see the house RIGHT NOW? Sigh.
It's not really a home anymore. It feels like a hotel for me. Only without the maids.

Then when I ask you to please refrain from making complaint in my earshot becasuse it is frustrsting for me to listen to it when I know how he struggles to create a lineup that is fair, don't complain that you are frustrated with the coaching. Where were you at the beginning of the year when he begged for help? Well, let me tell you, you can take the job next year!
