The good news is that my parents are coming to visit on Friday! Yea!

The bad news is MY HOUSE IS DIRTY! Well, not anymore. I cleaned like crazy today!

And Matthew was such a good help. He vacuumed the stairs, cleaned the gameroom, emptied all the bathroom trashcans. I even had him wash a load of clothes! That kid can seriously help when he wants to! (AND it's his first day of Spring Break! Is he nice or what?)

I know you're wondering what I was doing if Matthew was doing all that. Trust me, I was cleaning other stuff. My house has been neglected BIG TIME!

Not that my parents care about a clean house. (They only want to see Matthew!) But I like a clean house. I'm so much happier when things are straight and I was really good about it.....until diabetes walked into our life.

I don't think I've cleaned a thing in 3 months. And I'm not kidding. It's been information overload, trying to learn how to manage Matthew's diabetes.

But now, thankfully, the house is mostly clean and I'm hoping I can keep it that way. My plan is to get back into my flylady routines. When I did flylady, my house was always pretty clean with very little effort. : )

Slowly but surely, I'm getting my life back together. Althought I haven't been on the treadmill this week! Hmmmmm.....does cleaning like mad count as exercise?!

Hmmmm, let me is exercise!!! Especially if you spent most of the day doing it :) I would say you can take a pass this week on the treadmill.

Enjoy your visit with the parents this week :)

Don't do it all! Moms love to "help" you with something. And yes cleaning does count as exercise, in fact it counts X2!
