It's One of Those Days

"I have to wear black and white. I'm having the school play today."

"What? Why didn't you tell me? Your bus is coming in five minutes!"

A.R is motionless by the door as I scramble upstairs to find his clothes. I throw a white t-shirt, and black track pants to him. He quickly changes, and bolts out the door to catch his bus.

I hate doing things last minute. Arggh!

No wonder my mornings are so hectic and chaotic! And I must say that living in a house with three boys (husband included) isn't always domestic bliss. Every day, I see shoes, socks, jackets and toys scattered all over the floor. Why can't they pick up after themselves?

I keep telling them there's a place for everything. Food scraps in the green bin, dirty clothes in the hamper, wrappers in the garbage, books on the shelves. Pretty simple, right?


It's very complicated. And my patience is running thin.

I guess it's one of those days...sigh. 

I need to take a moment to breathe. And try not to fret over the little things. 

Now if I could only break out into song and Glee!

Oh, that would be sublime!

But, who am I kidding? The darn house would still be a mess.


  1. Oh how I know what you mean!! I sing while cleaning the kitchen. "Let's clean the kitchen...clean it, then clean it again!" To the tune of roll out the barrel. Makes me laugh.

  2. That totally sounds like my house! I just started doing a chore jar to encourage my kiddos to help out more around the house and so far so good.

  3. I totally remember doing that to my mom, I'm sure payback is coming! Hope you have a relaxing night!

  4. I also hate doing things last minute and there is most definitely a place for everything. EVERYTHING. I guess we both need to just breathe.

  5. It is kind of why i like the weekends when we leave the house - we come back and no tornados have hit it ALL DAY!

    PURE JOY!!

    I want to break out into song and dance too :-)

  6. Oh man. I totally get what your saying. I can relate today. Sigh.
