Yesterday I was feeling truly awful and afraid that my cold had turned into a sinus infection. But we had a good night's sleep and woke up feeling much better. We got school done early this morning, and Beth offered to keep the girls after lunch. So, I got the master bedroom painting finished. After supper, the girls played outside while I tidied up some in the 'big house', and then around 9, I set them up with popcorn and a movie and left Anna "in charge" and with my cell phone, while I went back out to finish cleaning up. I cleaned up and swept the whole upstairs and helped Joey clear out the materials and junk from the living room, cause my favorite USDA lady is coming bright and early tomorrow for our first inspection and financial disbursement. Anyway, I got tuckered out and we came in around 10:15 to find that Anna had put Eva to bed and she was asleep already, Lil was snoring away on the couch, Anna was getting Elley jommied up and she had tidied up the living room. All on her own with not a word from me. I nearly cried. I am so blessed to have such a kind and thoughtful child!
