It's 8:30 a.m. Monday morning and I have our dinner in the Crockpot, my second load of laundry in the dryer and my first load folded and put away, the kids have been fed crackers and peanut butter plus whole-grain cereal and milk and their rooms, dressers and closets are completely cleaned out and organized. I've made the business calls that needed to be made today and started cleaning up our office desk. It's going to be a fabulous day - and it's Monday!
Oh no! Have I fallen and become one of those blogs where the writer shares how perfect she and her life are?? You know the ones where you love to read them but always come away feeling like you just don't measure up? Wondering - why can't I be super organized, the ultimate cook, Martha Stewart decorator, have a house cleaner then Mr. Clean's, look as perky and cute as Meg Ryan (the "You've Got Mail" version, not the mid 2000s version) and homeschool my amazingly well-mannered and genius children like SHE does?
Well don't you worry, this blog will NEVER become like that, because well, it's written by ME and I am far from the perfect homemaker/wife/mother/daughter/friend.
In fact, my family room is filled up with our outdoor chair covers and lots of ride-along vehicles to kept them all dry from the rain, my sink is full of dirty dishes, I'm still in my pajamas with unwashed make-up on my face from yesterday and I'm a day behind (or two) in my Bible study - and we just started it last week! I'm also a day late on my "Mother's Day" post and have an office that would make anyone who detests clutter squirm.
Ahhh...that's much better. More like my blog. More comfortable and relaxing, less perfect and condemning. Welcome and I hope you have a great day too! Happy Monday!
