Got guilt? Check.

This photo captures the essence of Gavin's life today. He was alive and kickin', but he sort of got lost in the pile of things to do. I realized when I put him to bed that my neighbor held him more than I did today. Wow. Good thing Jennifer is such a great friend and loves to cuddle little ones! And good thing I have a good-natured baby that will put up with being shuffled from car seat to swing to bouncer to stroller to crib. Gavin was a trooper today. And I have a lot of guilt.

The good news is that the house is so close to being ready to put on the market! I still need to sweep out the garage and vacuum all the carpet and dust the kitchen light fixture. Garry has a couple little items on his to-do list, too. I still need to pack for our trip. And obviously, I still need to fold a mountain of laundry. But thanks to some wonderful friends, the huge list of major chores has a lot of satisfying check marks.

Tomorrow the boys and I will fly to Mesa for more than a week of family fun. Aside from catching up on sleep and enjoying the company of my parents, siblings, and nieces and nephews, I am looking forward to reconnecting with my children in a stress-free (not to mention warm and sunny) environment. And knowing my mom, she'll probably even fold my laundry for me.
