Up to my Elbows in Bleach, Rooms get a New Look and Prayer for a Special Man.

Whew! How did you like that for a heading? Lots going on around here and I never know when I'm going to get a chance at the computer, so I felt the need to pile it all in.

Bleach?

Well, got to work this morning and realized that one of the babies that had a very infected bug bite yesterday, is in the hospital today with the good possibility of staph. Fun. Anyway, I spent my morning bleaching toys, wiping down changing tables and highchairs and mopping floors. The best part? I still smell like the lovely aroma of BLEACH. Well, at least I SMELL clean. :)
By the way, baby is going to be OK.

Prayer request?

See these men?

I love them both to pieces. That is of course my hubby and his favorite man in the world, his dad. Papa has been having a rough go of it lately. He has cancer and has had it for a good long while. In fact for years, I forgot he even had it, for it didn't cause him pain and it was the very slow moving kind. Fast forward a few years and it isn't so forgotten. Now hormone treatments aren't enough. There has even been talk of radiation. Yet, what I know for sure is that he WILL HAVE TO START CHEMO AT THE END OF AUGUST. Please pray for him. He hasn't been feeling too well lately and...

In case you are wondering, you didn't remember wrong or misread. Yes, my mother-in-law is just getting over and healing from her own radiation treatments. She is being watched closely right now as well. So, if you don't mind, say a prayer for her too while you are at it.

And then there is my dear, sweet hubby. He is having to deal with us all... including my sick gallbladder. He is a trooper for us all. Pray for continued strength as he continues to juggle it all, as well as all the emotions that come with it.
Thanks friends.
God is good and I totally believe He will see us through all of this.
And now, can I have a drum roll please...

Here are pictures of my hard work. Please forgive the blurriness, my camera was losing charge so I snapped real fast...

Here is the new and CLEAN AND ORGANIZED KAYLA'S ROOM...
I forgot before pictures, but you will just have to trust me that you COULD NOT see the floor. Three trash bags later, she was a very happy camper.





Now for the little man's "Man Cave..."




What do you think? My son and I didn't do too bad on our own without daddy, did we? He LOVES it and that is totally what really matters.
Well, got to run for now. I know I am so behind on my reading too. I will try to catch up real soon. Have a great week! Oh, by the way, it is WEDNESDAY! :)

PS: There's a strange floating photo frame on your blog, right in the middle of the post. I can't see the picture, just a little box. I've seen this on some other blogs but haven't a clue what it means.

For what it's worth...
