OK~ I leave town and life is good when I come home and my house is standing. There is something about coming home and within an hour things are totally chaotic! So.... I reach into the drawer to find a spoon and much to my dismay, here ya go!
I am thankful that the dishwasher was empty and had two dirty dishes in it- that's awesome! When I left a full load of clean dishes was in it. There is hope- my boys (dogs included) are great when it comes to fending for themselves.
Everything else looks better than it did when I left. I kid you not, I was not home more than two hours and this occurred!
I guess Skipper and Wally decided that I needed a real welcome home, Mom! Yep, all the packaging from everything consumed while I was away was to be found here.
It is always fun to hit the road and explore new places. There's something about coming home to the flat lands of Iowa, being able to see for miles and all of that wide open blue sky! When I stepped outside this morning the birds were chirping, the snow was beginning to melt and there is a scent of Spring in the air. I know that may sound strange, but that's how it is in Iowa. You can literally smell the change of the seasons when you step outside.
I am looking forward to the changes that come with Spring arriving. I am really, really hoping our apple tree buds do not get frozen off again. Last Spring all of our apples got zapped in an April freeze. We had zero apples last Fall. I also look forward to the scent and view that my lilac bushes provide, my fingers are crossed that they will not get frozen off like the apple buds did last year.
All in all, it's good to be home. I am reminded that life is good when chaos is around. The messy drawer and garbage all over remind me that my life is fun and we are living our life! Life is all about experiences and this Mom is embracing all of them. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
