Today is one of those days that the way I have felt for the past week has caught up with the condition of the mess here in the house. I wish I could say this is the worst of it but our bedroom looks like a teenager has moved in. How many hours a day do we women spend making things look like we picture in our minds to be the perfect home as we are sure everyone else has. Right? Sure, and this is the great lie that has driven many a woman to madness. Is it a mess or is it something else.
I see Katie's science book from the homework we did last night with a sweater on it that she needs momma's help with to get the string back in. I see drills that Dayve brought home to hang pictures for me. I see a crock pot from a great pot of stew and lots of pieces of time we spend together. So is your home such a mess or is it just a beautiful life happening? I love this family, this home, the love here, the peace here. Without the worry of what the world thinks, it is pretty much a beautiful life. Look around your home today, is it such a pit of filth or is it blissful chaos?
A few quick tips of mine that make for a quick clean up if the Pope does indeed drop by. Two laundry baskets, put all mess in it, open the closet door, put it in. Two Clorox wipes in the bathrooms and two for the kitchen, wipe and run. One mist of home spray in each room, vacuum, light a candle, pitcher of drinks. Done.
I see so many of us exhausted as I am out and about around town. We have to be sure to share a bit of our mess to let each other know that none of us are living in a magazine home and we shouldn't strive for it. We are meant to also enjoy some of the home and family we love so much. Trust me, your family will also enjoy you more if you let some things go and just have a laugh with them. Embrace the blissful chaos today...
Just a woman on the edge of something every single day with a good sense of humor to assure I don't drive away Thelma and Louise style. This blog is just a way for me to share some realness with all of you.
