Four years ago today I was in the Bahamas. It was a quick trip, but we had a lot of fun.

A year from today I hope to be somewhere else fun for a five-year anniversary trip. This is the fourth year in a row I've either been pregnant or nursing on our anniversary. Ha! That is not my plan next year.

Today James is at Lake Blackshear at "Camp Fresh" with Grandmama and Granddaddy. He was SO excited about going that he couldn't even take a nap yesterday. He was a little upset when he found out Grandmama and Granddaddy hadn't invited Will and Scout this year, but he got over that pretty quickly.

Today I am getting reacquainted with the Fly Lady and scrubbing my house clean. Our master bedroom and bathroom seem to never get cleaned these days. I just shut the door when we have company. Hopefully I'll get that taken care of today.

Yesterday a friend emailed me the name and number of a cleaning company. Several times today I've considered calling them. I actually do think I might have them come and deep clean my house every six months. It's tough to clean with babies at home.

Today Will is being a model only child. He slept until 10:30 (after only waking up ONCE last night!) and has been pretty content all day long! Yea, Will!

Today Eddie and I have plans to go out to dinner for Mexican. Mmm. And run a few errands, including going to Lowe's so that we can hang our new curtains that Bess helped me order.

Speaking of Bess helping me, today our new side table from Ballard should arrive. I am SO excited!

Today a horrible tragedy occurred in Colorado. I cannot imagine what those people are going through. Makes me think back to Columbine. I remember exactly who I was with that day when I heard that news.

Today I'm writing my 1,000th post. Can you believe it?

Today I'm excited because yesterday my sweet daddy drove all over creation (well, all over Lawrenceville) to pick up this beauty that he has dubbed the "cootie chair" since it was a Craigslist find. I can't wait to get my hands on it. Paint it, perhaps? I plan to use it for Will's one year pictures but I'll probably also use it in our kitchen. Our other chair is so big and bulky!

Today has been a good day. Hoping your today has been good, too!

I am with you on getting a housekeeper. Some weeks, I would pay good money for a deep clean. I may ask you for the company you are gonna call...
