Do you ever feel like you are being torn in a million different directions? I've been feeling like that lately. There is so much I need to be doing right now,,, but here I sit blogging. LOL I think sometimes people thing that when you don't work outside the home life is so much easier.... It's not! Especially when you run a business in your home,, and double when that business involves little kids that love to run around and make messes. :) I love my job and I love the kids that are here, I wouldn't trade it for anything but it comes with lots of work and cleaning because I believe in letting the kids play and not constantly nagging them about not making messes. What we need to work on is teaching them how to clean up their messes. :)
I've said before that laundry is my favorite household chore......well its not anymore. Even though Im constantly doing it it never seems to get done! Especially when I have a little girl that seems to have accidents every single day during nap time and kids that change their clothes 50 times a day. OH and the latest thing around here is the little girls have been playing "Florida resort". Over Christmas break we went to Florida, Emma has not forgotten about it and now every single day she plays Florida and finds a bag and "packs", Packing includes taking all the clothes out of her drawer and shoving them in the bag then toting it around the house getting in the pretend car and driving to Florida. It is actually very cute and I love seeing them use their imaginations but the dragging the clothes out every single day is getting quite old. When I try to put the clothes away she screams and tells me thats her Florida clothes.
We are actually leaving for Tennessee next Friday for a little vacation so I have a feeling Florida resort will turn into Tennessee cabin after we get back. :) I've got lots of work to do before we leave for TN,, I haven't even started thinking about packing yet and then theres getting the house all sparkly before we leave,, I like to come back to a clean house after time away. When we get back the kids will only have one week of school left then they will be on summer break! Yay for them! Let the craziness begin. :)
The other thing I've been struggling with is this food journey I'm on. I've mentioned before that we are trying to eat healthier and real foods,, not the processed stuff. We still had some snacky type stuff and the kids have been eating that but now we are pretty much out of it all. So its up to me to make everything homemade. That takes a lot more work,, I feel like I spend so much more time now in the kitchen cooking and then cleaning up. But I guess its worth it for our health.
Whew,,,, I hope you all don't think this was a big whiny complaining post. I can honestly say I've been so happy with my life lately. I feel so blessed with my kids and husband. He and I have been getting along beautifully lately! I just feel like there are not enough hours in the day. :) Now its off to work.
