Sibling Rivalry...

I made the trip back to Akron with LDBoy last night to pick up things I had left there Christmas Eve...

While looking through the fridge/freezer to see what was left that I could leave for New Years Eve - oh yeah...I have been invited back :) ....

I found a full pan of Mint Brownies and Peanut Butter Fudge cookies that I left there at Thanksgiving ...
LDBoy: Oooops...I forgot about these...I guess I will trash them...
ME: Noooooo....cookies and candies do keep well in the freezer....put them back...
Whew...one less thing to do this next week!

When I got back to Willoughby, G-Man and one of his friends (one of my favorites) were in the basement and asked me to stay upstairs for awhile.

It was after midnight by now, so I had no problem obliging. It was way past my bedtime anyway...

At 5:00 AM this morning they woke me and asked me to come to the basement...

And what to my wondering eyes did appear???

Nothing...
...no dust or dirt...
...no trash laying around from previous overnighters...
...no holes in the wall (don't ask)....
...no scuff marks on the wall....
...no crude drawings or poems on the wall size white board...
I was totally impressed and awed...
They picked up ...
They vacuumed...
They scrubbed...
They painted....
For five frickin' hours....

While I slept...

It was like a Cinderella dream come true...

I was so stunned I could hardly get a thank you out....

G-Man: Merry Christmas, Mom...I know it's not a day at Salon Preston, but Dan and I - we do what we can....

You do it well, guys, you do it well...

Thank you!

Now THAT's a seriously great gift! Wish Vlad would do that for me!

Well done, boys! Well done!

THAT is a great present.

I could easily sleep while Hubby cleaned.

Yeah. No problem.

And I would never be able to find anything again.

Sounds like they put a lot of thought into that. Good kids you've got there.
