"Why?" you might ask?? Well, for starters...
-The laundry pile (clean laundry pile) is so big, it now appears that we have gained a piece of furniture in our bedroom.
-There are bills and pieces of mail as far as the eye can see. I think I have a dining room table, but I'm not sure. At the moment, I can't see it.
-Everywhere I look, I see pink. Toys, blankets and little iity bitty clothes have taken over our house. Soft pink, hot pink, lipstick pink, pepto pink...you name it, you can see it!!
-My refrigerator is so full of random food, it looks like someone had a party in there and forgot to clean up.
-Every pair of shoes that we own is currently piled up in our living room or our closet. None are neatly put away, they sort of just resemble a mountain of laces and soles with no apparent "match" in sight. We just may have to "move mountains" to make a difference here.
-In the last 3 weeks, I have started 2 major closet clean-outs and finished none. The closets in Ava's room and our room appear to have vomited. If hindsight is 20/20, organizing closets was not a good decision.
-The sink is surprisingly clean and the dishwasher empty, but the floor is a mosaic of all we've recently eaten and I'm sure I spotted some clumps of dog hair clinging to the baseboards. Awesome.
If that does not give you a clear picture of how busy we have been in the last few weeks, I'm not sure what else to confess. We DESPERATELY need some time to be home and be still. Well, not still as in "sit on the couch and do nothing" but still as in "don't leave the house until we're sure we can see the original surfaces again!!" That kind of still. The only problem is that we have something going on everyday this week. Oh and have I mentioned that we have a baby? So yeah, you can imagine how well I'm going to do at getting our world put back together again. Speaking of our world, have you ever heard the comparison between your purse and your world? It goes something like "the state your purse is currently in, is often reflective of the state your life is currently in. I'm not sure what this means for me, but today I got so fed up with my current purse that I switched to a brand new one and just started all over again. Hmm...Do you think that's possible to do with my home, our schedule and this mess??
Oh well, I know it will get done one day. Welcome to life as a Mommy, right?? The good news is that I do have some fun pictures to share with you from this past weekend, but until I can gain just a little more "control" over my world and my home, they will have to wait. We took a fun little road trip yesterday that I can't wait to tell you about and of course I've got some Ava stories for you, but until then, I'm looking for a little support here...
Tell me, what is one thing in your life that feels out of control?? I know I'm not the only one with "issues!" Who else needs a little order in their world?? Can't wait to hear from you!
