Fond Memories

Today is a day I look back over that last entry and sigh.  I should post pictures of those same rooms today, but I am afraid of showing the world what the house usually looks like!  And no, I am not exaggerating.  I am not one of those SAHM's who says her house is a disaster because the baseboards have dust on them.  Baseboards? I am supposed to clean those?  It always amazes me how long it takes to clean, yet how short a time it takes for the tornado to hit.  Sort of like those awesome Sunday dinners that take 5 hours to cook and 4.5 seconds to devour.  There needs to be a balance.  If the house is spotless and it took 5 hours to get it that way, it should be able to stay that way for at least 48 hours. Instead, it takes 5 hours to clean and about 20 minutes to destroy.  I'd give up completely and just let it be, but A&E has Hoarders and TLC has Hoarding:Buried Alive.  I know we would eventually wind up on one of those shows.  I would just tell people we collect things, we don't hoard.  At least there wouldn't be moldy pumpkins and rotting roasts in the freezer.

There are so many things that are more important than a clean house. You have your priority's straight and you are doing a great job. No dead cats in the corners. Children making a mess is just creative playing, enjoy it.

I'm there with ya Mel. Oh and if Grandma Smith is right, than my kids must be the most creative people on the planet!
