#february or #january
Today is one of those days where I wish I was a super cool, trendy, get-all-my-super-cute-clothes-for-free, my-kids-are-always-photo-ready-and-or-at-school, blog moms because then at least I'd look good.
Because things are swirling out of control around here; there's puddles of pee on the bathroom floor, I don't want to do schoolwork anymore, I'm in a terrible mood, the floor needs to be swept, and I'm not even dressed yet.
But in an effort to turn this day around I thought I'd ramble over here a bit.
Things over here have puttering along quite February-like. February is such a month isn't it? This February has actually been much better than past Februarys because the weather has been livable, we've seen friends, and even went out for our bi-annual date night. These are really great things that have helped this month move along nicely. Sometimes it's just these things that give me enough to look forward to and to stop dwelling on the February-ness of it all.
But that being said we're now two weeks into Lent and I have no idea how I'm doing. I'm feeling like what I gave up must not have been enough because I don't feel as if I'm under a burden and dreading another month of Lent. I've actually kept up with my 40 Bags in 40 Days goal which is pretty remarkable, because I get so bored of decluttering and cleaning. The decluttering has seriously eaten into my free time though. Because I just don't have much extra time in the day for anything. Add in a bit of extra cleaning -- even 20 minutes worth -- and I feel like my free time to write or read has evaporated.
Who says I need to declutter??
If you're ever tempted to buy someone a spice rack for a wedding gift -- PLEASE DON'T!
Ok, that's really all my shallow thoughts for right now. I can't write about deeper things when I'm this crabby because things would get ugly around here. I promise to not give up blogging for the rest of lent.
