The Good, The Bad & The Ugly - Link Up


The weekend is over - Monday is here - all is quiet again at my house - no more company - no more excuses to let my house slide - my OCD has kicked back in and I have been cleaning house all morning - restoring everything back to its usual place. It has been totally out of whack for 2 weeks - make that 3 weeks - we had company pretty much for the past 3 weeks.

So on to the GBU ...

The Good - I had FUN FUN FUN with my 2 grandangels and mom here for 2 weeks. We crammed in a lot of good times. I feel like we made some really good memories. It was Lily's first trip here and I know she had a blast. I know she is only 5 so her memories will fade pretty quickly - but I hope our bond that we sealed will last our lifetimes.

The Bad - It rained the WHOLE second week - that pretty much put a damper on our pool time (literally!) and we really wanted Lily to learn more than she did. She went from being afraid to get off the first step to going all over the pool (with floaties and vest, of course) and she even put her face in the water with goggles on. I know she would have learned so much more had we had a full 2 weeks in the pool.

The Ugly - my house really really really is a mess. Oh my!! With Brad and I both being such sticklers about everything in its place - I think we did very well about letting it all go and just having fun. There was a few times when I attempted to clean toothpaste out of the sink or wipe down the mirrors, but I pretty much just ignored it for the most part. LOL

  1. Sometimes ignoring the mess around the house to have some fun is priceless. Things can always be cleaned and put away but you can't go back and relive a moment! Hope you have a great week!

  2. I always like to think that things like rain are God's way of protecting us from all of those "what if" moments. Have a wonderful weekend!
