I saw this on Facebook today and I had to laugh. It explains how I feel so often.
So many times I feel inadequate as a mother and wife. I feel like I should be doing more. I see others and feel like I’ve just fallen short. I don’t spend enough time with the girls, there isn’t always a completely balanced meal on the table by a certain time, and my house is rarely completely clean. From time to time it even looks worse then ‘lived in’.
I have a hard time sticking to a cleaning schedule, but I continue trying. The hardest part for me to keep up on is our ‘dump’ zones….the kitchen table, the counters, and my bedroom. I cringe at the idea of anyone popping over and will try to meet people outside just so that they don’t have to see our mess.
Don’t get me wrong…things around here don’t get ‘dirty’. Just cluttered and disorganized. It never takes long to pick up and get the place looking better. It is just the “getting there”. Maybe I should take lessons from someone. Or better yet…hire little fairies to keep the place tip top.
