Today I am grateful for the hour-and-a-half mad dash clean-up I did this afternoon before some friends came over. It's amazing how much I can get done when my adrenaline starts pumping! I did laundry, washed dishes, cleaned countertops and the stovetop and the sink, vacuumed under the dining room table, started dinner ... seriously, it was unreal. If only I could replicate that without the heart-pounding burst of energy that an unexpected deadline gives me.
I'm also grateful that our friends came over tonight. It has been way too long since we last saw them, and it was so good to catch up and let the kids go off and play together.
Have a wonderful night!
