Last night, The Husband worked later than usual, then he came home and made supper.
The boys came home from school and finished their homework, then Younger Son ran off for church activities and Elder Son studied for exams.
I had a meeting that ran until 7pm, then I came home and ate left overs.

By 8:00pm, I was prepared to start washing dishes, but I couldn't.
Because the breakfast dishes were still in the rack where I'd left them to dry at 7:30 that morning.

For once, there wasn't one person in this house who wasn't pulling their weight.
Not one person I could have pointed at and said, "Hey, a little help here."
Not one.

And frankly, it was kinda nice.

Lemon Stand, you can HAVE mine! :)

Yes Roses, it is kinda nice when all the leeches are doing something productive...even if a drop or two of blood is ignored in the frenzy.
