I'm feeling like a blog failure these days. Amanda, sweet friend, you have inspired to me to get busy with it. See Amanda's blog here... http://soulemama.blogspot.com/
I don't know if its the winter blues or stress from living in a half-done house but I feel only motivated to clean and keep my environment neat and organized these days... a HUGE feat with two small children and a teenager who like to tear it up, play ball in the house, leave food everywhere, etc. I'm tired. Oh so tired.
Just as it felt like spring was in the air (I know, it was WAY too early to even have hope) we got hit with a HUGE storm that had to arrive right in the midst of a family stomach flu. So I had to drag my weak ass out to shovel so my sweet husband could lay in bed and recover, as he was the latest victim. Well, the snow was almost 2 feet high and HEAVY and I thought I would never make it back inside.
And then I have all these worries in the back of my mind... I need to get those EBAY packages out PRONTO! What bills are due? Which ones take priority? Will we ever get the kids room done? Will we ever have our crown mold, baseboard, entertainment center, hallway, office, bathrooms, DONE?
And then Tula is in her toddler hitting, biting, kicking phase. And, oh, how she loves to attack her big sister who loves to get in her face. Ella is bored to tears and enjoys ripping into EBAY boxes, tearing all the stuff we haven't unpacked OUT onto the attic floor, etc. And then there is Doc who is in his teenage aloof apathetic phase. Oh, how I remember that well! Oh how I miss being able to go in my room and shut out the world for awhile. However, I feel jipped! How come we never had AIM?! (as in AOL Instant Messenger). Oh, how my life would have been different!
I look forward to spring. We will build a playground in the backyard and have a sand box! YAY!!! We can finally put those cool Magic Cabin sand toys to good use!
