a title-less post
i am forcing myself to notice yellow today. because it is my favorite color. besides red. and because i am trying not to notice all of the messes in almost every room in the house.
what is it about a serious cleaning that makes messes grow. i feel like things are following me from one room to another and nothing is getting put where it belongs or in the TRASH for that matter.
i think there are people secretly trying to sabotage my mission.
it was a rainy monday yesterday and i was desperately seeking sunshine. but it wasn’t to be found in its’ usual form until the afternoon.
it was, however, abundant in the form of things and people. especially little people. dancing around the kitchen. whistling. and making messes masterpieces with legos.
i am always in awe of how little children are unaffected by things that make us blue.
they will dance in a dirty kitchen. and whistle while there are piles of dirty laundry needing to be sorted.
you didn’t think we were doing school today. or this whole week for that matter did you?
yes, spring break is supposed to be over. but i think we’ll be needing at least a week to recover from that vacation . which was really nothing but a bundle of stress and worry for me. there is nothing quite like a family crisis to throw everything out of whack.
on a lighter note a birthday package arrived from my aunt yesterday. it was filled with some things for me and the baby. biscotti. see’s candy truffles. spending money. beaded embellishments. ric rac. and two boxes of long grain rice. a rather random assortment, wouldn’t you say? she is so funny. i just love her packages. one never can tell what she’ll send!
i think i’ll end this profound post by asking if you think there should be a statute of limitations on crimes of fashion for children who hoard and wear belly shirts and halloween socks in the spring (the offender is 6). i have been trying to figure out what the punishment for this offense, as well as punishment for the girl -who on the opposite extreme of the boys- has been hiding halloween candy in her room. still in the bag. since october.
i should probably just let it go. i know. what’s the use.
just know mothers. that most children. when they say they’ve “cleaned their room”. they really haven’t. and if you trust them the joke’s on you.
happy tuesday, friends!
i’ll try to write a birthday post on wednesday about how exciting it has been to bleach the sinks!
