Tomorrow is a new day

And thank the Lord for that. I need new mercies in the morning. I need a clean slate.

"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22-23

I feel like I've just been going and going lately. Cole was at the office pretty much all weekend, so I didn't even realize it was the weekend. On Monday I was sure it was Thursday. That is sad.

And to top it all off, Cole had to leave for business yesterday and won't be back until tomorrow. The twins have been good - as they always are - but I'm worn out. Little Cole has been a touch whiny, and I just can't take it sometimes. I thought about going to sit out in the front yard in the sunshine and leaving him to whine inside. I didn't, but it was tempting.

His cute little face kept me inside though.

The good news is that I made myself do some more cleaning and organizing last night. I can actually see progress today! I'm hoping to finish up a few more projects tonight so Cole won't recognize the house when he comes home tomorrow. (Ok, it may not be that dramatic, but I can tell a huge difference in how the house feels. It just feels...lighter. Less cluttered. More cared for. I think my mom might even be proud of the state of my house now. That's huge.)

You amaze me! I am barely entering the "your house is not trashed phase" tonight, and that's with only me and the husband here! Here's to almost-clean houses! :-)

I agree with Mrs. Jones! My house constantly looks like it's been ransacked so you're doing an incredible job!

I needed this reminder - been feeling the same lately! Just exhausted - Kyle deploys every other month, so I understand being alone with kiddos...just not TWO yet! :)
