I haven't held many jobs in my life and quite frankly they have all been pretty great jobs. The only job that I absolutely hated was being a janitor at
. Thankfully I had a professor who saw it and quickly got me out of there! I had another job that wasn't so great, but since I didn't "have" to have it, I walked away. But there is one job that takes the cake in both positive and negative. Well, it really isn't negative, it is more frustrating! That is being a MOM!
I love it! Love it! Love it! Especially when it is going great! But this week has been awesome even with all I've been going through.
Last Saturday April 17, I told the kids that since I was starting chemotherapy our house had to be cleaned. Not only because I was going to be sick, but because people would be coming over and we needed to clean it up. I went for my usual team run in the morning and when I got home at 11 the kids had each of their rooms picked up and were ready for the common areas. With
--help we were done top to bottom, side to side by 1! Some even stopped to eat!!! I cried! For the most part we all got along and my house was wonderful! Jessie even helped me in my own bathroom (how come mine is always so dirty?).
Then I had surgery on Monday and the kids were great! They helped with soccer practices and dinner and everything! Tuesday I had chemo and they did another great job in getting kids to soccer practices etc. Of course they needed reminders about cleaning up their jobs, but they didn't complain and got them done.
Wednesday, Thursday and even today, they willingly got in and got their jobs done and most did more than they were asked. I can't believe it! What great kids I have.
Steve has been very busy at work and worrying about me and I've been down with chemo effects, so the kids had to pick up even more. They are just awesome! I love them.
