unbelieveable

Right Now...

-The laundry is finished and put away in the first time in weeks months??
-The floors are swept.
-The rugs are vacuumed.
-The dishes are clean, in the dishwasher still, but clean (I'm still me afterall)
-The bathroom is bleached to an inch of our lives.
-The house smells like Yankee Candle, as opposed to wet dog.

Why you may ask?

I'd love to answer that I'm trying to be a better housewife, I've had a few days off of work and decided to be productive, that I'm working on changing my ways...

But in reality, MY SISTER IS HERE!!!!!

My sis and her husband came to stay for the night. He has an appointment here tomorrow morning and instead of driving 3 hours tomorrow, they came up tonight! Yay!

My sister is several years older than I am, I did not grow up with her as my "sister" she was more of a second "mom"...and a very strict annoying one to boot. We didn't get close until we lived together while I was in college. She was going back to school and I was starting...I didn't think we'd both make it out alive.

The opposite happened, we became best friends. I'm closer to my sister now then I've ever been. I know that we are always there to support each other unconditionally. She and her husband moved away after we graduated and I miss having her around all the time. I love spending time with her and I wish that we lived closer together. Sigh. Maybe someday.

We graduated the same weekend, she from pharmacy school and I from nursing

I love sisters. And I'm very glad that she precipitated a whole house cleaning. As long as it's not my whole house.

It's always good to have guests if for no other reason than it motivates you to clean house :) hehe
