i had one of those nights last night where i felt like my home had just overwhelmed me. a case of the laundry has beaten me down into a corner, the carpet is about to take life, the bathrooms are a no man's land and so on...you know the kind of nights where you wish to god a maid would come miraculously to your house and help you or you wake up the next morning a la martha stewart and have the newfound talent to just do it all. ha. didn't happen. the maid didn't come and i'm not martha stewart..lol.
so instead of the crafty post i had planned today i cheered myself up by plugging in the camera and taking a look at what the hubs got up to with the kidlets on sunday while i was at sewing group. it was hilarious. the pictures themselves aren't funny but i can read the back story and hear their narrative. they had a good time and i just love idea of the shots mixing my little girls bright pink ensemble with flowered boots against a grey, snowy day (yes it snowed later) and a national historic site called fort rodd hill. i mean bombs, cannons, weapons, lighthouses, military stuff all juxtapositioned against my glowing little kiddos. only my hubby would think of that :)
needless to say it cheered me up and the house doesn't seem so bad this morning....maybe i will kick it's butt after all or at least make it till bedtime without crying about it..lol. any of you sometimes just feel plain overwhelmed by it all? i know, i know, i should just do one chore at a time, or do something nice to cheer myself up, and i will, but sometimes a girls just gotta whine a tad and see if she's the only one going to bed at night cowering under the blanket so she doesn't have to fall asleep staring at 4 loads of laundry waiting....just waiting.....whispering.."you should fold me...you should fold me..." and then the bathroom chimes in..."you should clean me...you should clean me...". lmao. ok, i haven't had coffee yet. don't judge me :)
what do you do to stay on top of things? do you have the feeling that sometimes you just can't do it all & something's gotta give? is it your home that sometimes falls to the bottom of the list? let's cheer each other up ladies. i'm off to get starbucks...want one?
