Right now i am sitting on the lounge in the lounge room. The movie "little miss sunshine" is on TV and i can hear the air conditioner kick into action. B went to bed fine at around 8pm but my little miss sunshine has decided that sleep isn't for her any more. Rather than argue with her (i have learn't to pick my battles) i let her grab her pillow and a blanket and lay on the lounge. Needless to say she crashed out shortly after and this is the sleeping beauty as she is right now laying next to me.
So i have done the tasks i set for myself tonight which was to clean the lounge room and dining room again and mop all the floors, yay. Finally i can sit and relax with the lap top.
To be totally honest with you though i actually really enjoy housework. I love the gratification i get after the job is done and i love looking around seeing the house all sparkly and clean, even if i know it will be destroyed within 5 minutes of the kids waking in the morning. Sad of me isn't it. I guess after everything that we have been through over the last few years it's the smallest things that make me happy.
One of the things that makes me happiest lately is coming home from work. Yep as soon as 2am hits i am out the door as fast as i possibly can be. I love walking in the door wondering which of my babies will be in bed waiting for cuddles and i actually get a tad dissapointed if they have both slept beautifully and are both still tucked up in their own beds. Again sad of me isn't it.
Nawwwwww, both my babies crashed out in my bed. Don't you just love how B is draped over the pillow and R is all neat and sleeping as if she were a princess. lol.
So of course i promptly hopped into bed and joined them all for cuddles, lucky we have a king size bed!
