In this fast paced world we live in it seems like our to do lists are getting larger and larger. Expectations are high whether it is work, home or kids. We are under pressure by our peers and even ourselves. We want to have the perfect house, job and kids. We try so hard to keep up with everyone else we lose sight of what we were striving for in the first place. I am just as guilty of it. We put ourselves down because we didn’t get “everything” done today. I can’t even count how many times I have said that or heard someone say that.
Maybe it’s just me but my daughter follows behind me un-doing everything I just did. I have to have everything set-up perfectly to be able to even vacuum my floor. I get the vacuum out, pick up the toys and then quickly vacuum while my daughter litters the floor behind me with the toys I just put away. I figure it’s a win that I even got the floor vacuumed. Maybe the floor is messy with toys but at least the carpet is clean. It’s a “clean” kind of dirt.
I am the dishwasher at my house. I have never had a dishwasher so I guess I really don’t know what I am missing out on. If I had my choice I would definitely get a dishwasher but right now it’s not in the cards. Every time I start washing dishes it seems like cups and plates appear out of nowhere. I always think I am finished but I never really am. I can leave the kitchen and every single dish is washed. I go back in 30 minutes and my dirty pile is catching up to my clean pile. I figure as long as we have enough clean dishes to eat the next meal with we are good.
Of course there’s that pesky laundry pile. I can only hope to live to see the day where there is an empty laundry basket. Until then as long as we are wearing clothes that are relatively clean I think we will make it.
