Organization and Mom

So, Mom is staying with me for a couple of months this summer.  She has recently moved back to Utah and two of my sisters and I are sharing her.  It's been fun having her here.  I feel badly leaving her at home every day while I go to work but when I come home I am usually pleasantly surprised by my clean, tidy, well put together home.  My laundry is done, my house is clean and if I leave instructions on dinner, that is done too.  I think she is trying to spoil me so that I wont want her to leave.  My sister Regina said she did the same for her when she was at her house and now she is suffering  having to do her own dishes again!  Ha Ha!  Anyway, it has been a great blessing having her here.

Since we moved into our new house,  I have not been able to get a whole lot done since it seems I am usually playing catch up on the cleaning each weekend and that's about all I have time for.  However, since Mom has been here, I have been able to get some of the organizing done in my home that I have desperately been wanting to do.  Some people like to spend their time decorating their home.  My passion is organization!  I love it!  I can get pretty carried away if you give me too much time and a little bit of money.  But i sure have been enjoying it!  With Mom taking care of the basics during the week, I get to come home and just organize til my little hear it content!  Unfortunately we have a lot of areas that need help in this department so I'll be busy for a while.  Luckily, I have 2 months before my house falls apart again without Mom here.  Mom will leave for Theresa's in August and then she will be back in December so I will have a 4 month lapse of time where I will not be able to be so attentive to my organizing obsession!  So, for now I will just enjoy.

But today we took a break and went out to Thanksgiving Pointe and attended the Rose Festival.  It was a beautiful summer day and Mom and I just enjoyed the out doors and the beautiful scenery.  We had our girl time together walking around the garden and having lunch together.  When I heard they were having a "Rose Festival", I just knew I had to take my "Rose"!
