Most of the time, when I look at my house, I cringe. Then I think, "what would my house look like if my kids were little robots I could program to never leave things laying around, always keep their toys in the designated toy boxes I so lovingly bought and organized for them, flush the toilet after every use without stuffing it full of wasted balls of toilet paper and actually feed the fish/dog/cat pets they promised they would care for all by themselves?". Well. Robots they are not.
My house is almost always an atrocious mess. 15 years ago, I would have walked into my house and condemned the owner as a lazy and slothful woman who needs to appreciate what she has and take care of it a little better. Besides, it could all be taken from her tomorrow. I'd bet that woman even yells at her poor, little, innocent progeny. For shame.
Welp. I'm not lazy. I do occasionally yell at my progeny. And yes, it could all be taken away tomorrow. But if God does choose to take it all away, I hope he takes the mountain of dirty laundry first.
But I digress.
I did successfully exchange all winter clothes for summer clothing in my children's closet today. It was an overwhelming task. But I did it. And finished. And I managed to clean a toilet and wipe down the bathroom and kitchen counters, too. But.....I did forget all about sweet Molly's trip to the farm today.....the one where you are supposed to send a complete set of extra clothes, shoes, a box of kleenex for her allergy induced, faucet of green snot constantly oozing from her nose. Oh, and a lunch. Woops. Luckilly, her school is right in front of Harris Teeter. A loaf of bread, a stick of salami and a box of raisins later.....the kid has a lunch.
Maybe today did have it accomplishments. Maybe todays accomplishments look differently than tomorrows accomplishments or the next days....or the next. And if I am hormonal? Well, then....getting out of bed and showing up is a valid accomplishment of it's own.
And that is okay.
Oh, and did I mention that I'm trying AGAIN to stop drinking coffee? But that's an whole other blog post!
