The day after--it looks like a HAPPY war zone

Real Estate Agent with RETIRED 200305001

I am sitting here with coffee and looking at the mess. It looks like a war zone. A happy war zone if there is such a thing.

Boxes and wrappers flung everywhere, dirty dishes piled up and not an empty flat surface anywhere. It was a wonderful time, all my young, adult babies made it home to spend the time with us. The time included a wonderful meal and the exchange of a few low budget, USEFUL items.

We decided to pass on the doing the dishes to get a few more uninterrupted moments before they had to leave. I don't care I will be cleaning up a mess, It WAS ALL WORTH IT!

Lets shake things up at your home today!

Spending time with your family is well worth the mess that was created and you have to clean up Rob.  Glad you enjoyed your time together.

Good morning Rob and such a lovely story. I am so glad you focused on family and not the mess. There is always time for that.

Great description... a happy war zone. 

I'm glad that you had a wonderful Christmas with your family and that you were able to enjoy the time with them rather than cleaning. 

I hope the Christmas spirit stays with you for days to come.

Hi Rob, I'm right there with you on that mess! Taking it slow this morning..but will need to put the music on and dig in. Nice that your adult "babies" were able to make it home..makes it worth it for sure.

I read about your mess. I liked the part about how the stores stock up with organizers the day after.
