willing to help organize my closets and make my beds!!!
Do shopping for us, bring us goodies and lets us take
care of their kids and dog. Today Annette, Elizabeth and
gang came over and we blasted through cleaning the office...
the fire safe, Dad's desk and the cupboards...everything is so
tidy and clean. Plus Maria was here so our house is squeaky clean.
