Ok this is totally how I am feeling today. One day of being really sick, must have been the 24 hour flu, and my house went from needing some tidying to needing a total overhaul.............and I ask myself...."how does this happen?"...... I had no idea really that the world of motherhood including the description of full time house keeper with no days off, like none, never! I have recently tried to convince J that we need to hire a house keeper, once a week, and he said.... that is your job....and I said oh no it isn't.... and he said oh yes it is....and well you get the point!
I came upstairs last night after spending the afternoon on the couch and the morning in bed, to find oatmeal cereal scattered everywhere, coats and shoes and socks everywhere, some serious juice spillage on every square inch of all the counters, lunch boxes and back packs thrown in every direction and I instantly felt overwhelmed. The thought of all the cleaning I had to do once I recovered overwhelmed me....and this was just my kitchen area!!
Thankfully my neighbor had the girls over for dinner when she learned that I had been up all night barfing ( just cuz you needed to know!! :-0 ). What a blessing she is to me! I had them have a bath when they got home and had them in bed by 9 which is WAY too late but they took advantage of my fevered state!! Then when I finally crawled up to my bedroom to have a good soak then hit the sheets......I opened my bathroom door to discover they had bathed in MY bath and there were clothes and wetness EVERYWHERE..... not to mention a nice dirty ring in the bathtub..........great.........then this morning I went into my laundry room to dump all the towels cuz you know they have to use every.single.towel.available. I discovered that indeed our springer spaniel spazz dog is in heat and there were droplets of blood all over the floor....thank goodness for lino and BLEACH! Thankfully I am feeling about 90% better and was able to handle that but my family wasn't done torturing me cuz when I dropped Faith off at preschool I didn't wait for the garage door to completely close, as I had a feeling I should, and sure enough my little Scottie poo squeezed under at the last moment after I peeled down the driveway and got into the garbage and made a nice little mess of it for me right in front of the door........ YUCK
When do we get a day off? when do we get to be sick and have things stay relatively normal? I know one day we will probably miss these days psfvt.... but until then....when you miss a little..... you miss a lot!!!
k rant over...continue with your day!
