My girls woke me up this morning with breakfast in bed. It was so totally unexpected...I nearly cried! They brought me frosted flakes, milk, and the sweetest little note. And what was so precious...they used a 9 x 13 glass pyrex dish as a tray. I have used these before as trays for them when they are sick and I take soup to them on the couch...but I never would have thought they noticed.
Moments like these are ones I will treasure forever. Macy and Lucy are at ages where they might be fighting like cats and dogs one minute, but then are best friends the next. I know it was the same way with my little sister once upon a time. They have really been so good and well behaved this summer (I know, it has only been 2 weeks!), and I just love watching their relationship grow deeper since they now have more time to spend together.
I got closet 3 out of 3 cleaned out today. Yay! It was the master closet, and I knew it would be the toughest. I just decided as soon as I got out of bed this morning that today was the day. It took me basically all day long...but now that it is done, it is so worth it!! I went through clothes that needed to be culled...I ended up with 2 huge boxes and 2 garbage bags full of trash and about 6 garbage bags full of things to donate to a local charity. It felt SO good to do it and it feels SO good knowing it is done! Now all our main closets are finished...on to summer for me *Ü*
I did take a couple of "after" pictures...I was not about to take any "before" pictures...or at least any to show. My closet was HORRIBLE! I would be ashamed for anybody to see the shape it was in. I told Jason I think we still have way too much stuff, but it is organized and neat and tidy, so I am okay with it.
This is so totally random, but one of my favorite things to eat in the summer is tomato sandwiches. We have a local tomato man that sells the best greenhouse tomatoes...they are so delicious. The thing is, though, people from all over come to buy them, so they sell out really quick. I ran to the grocery store this evening and drove by the tomato place just in case I could get lucky...and I did. This is my bag minus a few Lucy and me ate for supper.
