Feather

Heather, we miss you.

Heather is Jeff's girlfriend. Asher calls her Feather. She came to stay with us for about a week. Her sole reason in coming was to help me out. I pretty much love her.
This is an abbreviated list of what Heather did for me:
-swept and mopped all the tile in the house
-cleaned my shower (even after I told her she shouldn't have to because it was too gross) and the bathroom
-babysat
-fed Gwen bottles and baby food
-played with my kids
-dishes, dishes, dishes!
-cleaned all of our blinds
-accompanied me to the gym and motivated me to work out
-fixed lunch
-accompanied me on hard shopping adventures (such as Al's building supplies/seedy junkyard)
-vacuumed
-helped me seal and finally finish my silver leafed dresser
-detailed and washed my car

I'm probably leaving at least one thing off this list, but Heather and I accomplished A LOT while she was here. And we had fun! We talked and sang (she asked for a voice lesson, but it was more like a sing-along) and worked out and had a blast. I wish she lived with me. Life is much more fun and easy with her around. Before this week I didn't know Heather well. Now, I think of her as a friend. A sweet, gorgeous, talented, hard-working, motivated, smart, wonderful friend. Come back any time, Heather. You are always welcome here. Oh, and marry Jeff. We need to be related.

That is just wonderful Jamie! We missed Heather here... but it sounds like she was in the right place at the right time. So great that you guys could bond!

I LOVE Al's. Seedy yes, but there are bargains to be had. Did you get anything?

Glad you and Heather had a good time.
