Summer Cleaning

As I have mentioned in my previous blogs, one of the perks of being a teacher is having a long summer break -a little less then three months. Every summer, Doods and I take off on a long driving across different states. We live like nomads to the most part of our summer break -exploring. This summer however, is different. My sister and her family  came to join us for the summer break. They are here with us in Houston, from Arizona, for a month and a half. It has been a joy having them especially my four nieces. Doods and I love having them around. Having these much people though means a lot of adjustments, esp since we are so use to having no one at home with us, just the two of us.

One of the things we worked on, is the bathroom. My sister has four daughters, all younger than twelve. Geez, we definitely need to organize the bathroom. And then there's the guest room closet which the girls will use. I got organizers for that closet too. Then the cleaning part. We cleaned big time because my sister has a two-month old baby.  We thoroughly vacuumed the carpets, plus did some steam cleaning.  Because it's summer, the air feels dry and warm, we needed to get a  humidifiers for the baby. Oops, wait til I tell you all about the kitchen! Oh well, talk about summer cleaning, despite all the adjustments, Doods and I are super thrilled to have the girls (nieces) with us. We would gladly go through all the cleaning and organizing over again, just to have them here with us again next summer!

i miss my nieces and nephew too. i have only 2 brothers and only one is married who has 4 kids... i claim them as my own too since i don't have any kid and so glad that my brother and sister-in-law share them to me... but not very happy that i spoil them so much though. lol

It sounds as if you worked hard to get ready for your niece's visit. I hope it will be worth every single chore.
