She's swooped in

just in time to save me from a major meltdown!

This morning I sent my little kids over to JB's for the day so I could get some cleaning done. The clock is ticking! I had assumed I could get the upstairs done this morning and then focus on the main level this afternoon. I got the first bedroom done and was on my second when I started feeling very overwhelmed! It was awful! It didn't help that the night before we hadn't gotten any sleep (stayed out too late). I just couldn't stop thinking about all I still had to get done. My husband came in to talk to me and I broke down in tears. It lasted about 2.5 seconds and then I went back to work...just a short pity party!

It was about 5 minutes later that the front door opened and in walked....MOM! I didn't know she was going to come! All of a sudden my day looked so much brighter! She had her cleaning gloves and lunch for all of us in tow. She took over my floor scrubbing and sent me off to do something else. I was telling my husband how grateful I was for her showing up and he said "After I left that bedroom and saw your mom pull up, I knew it was all going to be okay."

Whew! Saved by the mother!

Honestly, we could not be doing this major of a move in such a short amount of time if it wasn't for family and friends! My in-laws have been over here working like dogs, others have watched the kids and helped out in other ways. I will be forever grateful!
