I swear this story is true. You're not going to believe that it's possible, but it happened, lol. :)
We're all super crazy busy this week. Shawn left early this morning for his first fill in shift in another town, so he's going to be gone most of the next four days, I spent the morning making a ridiculous amount of popcorn and boxing it into 30 boxes for a church youth activity tonight, I watching a friends daughter tomorrow and then both the boys have doctors appointments in the afternoon and I'm taking everyone school shopping. We just have a really full plate right now. Everyone is busy and juggling several things.
After spending the morning making 30 boxes of popcorn (I did it on the stove in the whirlypop and I had to make a ton of batches and it was hot and sweaty and took way longer than I thought it was going to), I went up to take a shower and while I was in the bathroom I heard Josh's friend from across the street call to see if Josh could come over. They spend most days together so I assumed he would go.
But he told the kid he couldn't hang out today and, true story, decided to spend the day cleaning the house so that Shawn and I would have one less thing to do during our busy week. He did the dishes, mopped the floors, cleaned up Clarissa's toys, vacuumed, decluttered...it was pretty much the greatest moment in teenage history.
I LOVE that kid. I don't know where he came from, but I love him, lol. And this moment needed to be documented because I want him to publicly know how much I appreciate him. He rocks.
