I just got home from Bible Study. My house is a wreck. I got up at 6am and I am still running behind. (Hmmm...perhaps I shouldn't be blogging right now.)
Anyway, I thought I'd invite you over! Come see what's really going on in my house!
We'll start with our bedroom. I've been sorting through old correspondence, intending only to keep what T and a few close family/friends have written to me. But I can't. I never realized how precious all those notes and letters would become to me. It's been like traveling back through the last several years. How wonderful and faithful so many have been to pray for me and our family and to encourage me through writing. There are about four women who consistently wrote me and prayed scripture over me, my little family, my sisters and my parents as we went through fire. Nope, I'm not tossing any of it. Anyhow, that's what's going on there.
Unmade bed...yeah, yeah, yeah...
Now come on into my laundry room. See that pile on the floor, on the left side? That's all towels and linens the dog (Warrior) has SATURATED with tee tee.
Ahhh...the den is hanging in there pretty well.
Now come on into my dining room. Oh, yes, this is our dining room. I promise. I told you I've been sewing. I'm still sewing. Er, well, at least trying to sew.
See that big dog bed on the floor, the one without a cover on it? It's Warrior's. He keep tee teeing on it. Yesterday we took him out and when we brought him back in, he went right to his bed and tee tee'd on it. Back in the wash.
And just past the dining room is my office. It's trashed. Those are thank you notes MW and I are still working on from her birthday party. That would be ten weeks ago!
And there's quite a paper pile building on my desk.
Oh, and the breakfast room. Take a peak in there. See the car seat on the floor? That's because I took the old cover off - little man had spilled milk on it. It never quite stretched to fit his seat anyway, so I was going to make one, but haven't had time to yet, so today before we got in the car to head home I asked him if he needed to tee tee. "NO." He was adamant about it. "NO."
He was wrong. He wet the seat. There's my afternoon project.
Those rags on the floor are to clean up the four tee tee accidents Warriors had today. Yes, four. He's been let out seven times since 4am. Whatever. This stage isn't forever. At least I've gotten almost all new kitchen towels out of this. MW kept using them to clean up tee tee, rather than the designated rags.
And now, come on into my kitchen. Mostly just dirty dishes. Doggy tee tee on the floor. I'm gettin' real close with lysol floor cleaner. It kills bacteria! Hooray!
And God is a God of order. And He has created me in His image. As I was reminded this morning in Bible Study, work is a gift. A good gift.
I've got my work cut out for me today. And I pray God will give me a song in my heart as I wash and scrub and fold and put away and sweep and mop and change diapers, etc. Because work is a gift and God is the giver of all things good.
