As the mama of a 4 year old, a 16 week puppy, 2 older dogs, two cats and being a wife, full-time worker outside of the home and full-time blogger inside the home, life can get a little crazy. There is so much I want to do! When I first started this blog I complained that I didn’t feel like doing anything – that’s an improvement for sure! Today, my day started at 5:30 when I woke up to go to the bathroom. By 6:30 I was leaving for the grocery store and I was back home by 8:30. Most groceries were away by 10 and I was working on the 3rd load of laundry. I laid down for about 30 mins and then DW woke me up. Spuddy’s grammy was picking him up at 11:15 to take him to run errands and have lunch with her (thank God for relatives who do this – seriously, you all should win a medal or something). DW went down for a nap and I started in on a To Do list. With the new puppy – Shadow – I cannot get this house to stop smelling like puppy poop. I have shampooed, used plug-ins, tried every over the counter thing there is – then DW said, “What about vinegar and water?” It WORKED!! Spuddy came home and said “Mama, what is that smell?” I told him and he said “Oh, it smells good!” Now it is 8:50 and I am exhausted. I didn’t get a single thing done for any of my sites today….and I am supposed to be working on making Spuddy’s old bedroom into a cool playroom while DW is supposed to be making our spare bedroom his new room. Nope, none of that done today either. The house is clean, we have food, the last load of laundry is in the dryer, everyone has been fed and has pottied….yet DW said, “This was a terrible day wasn’t it?” I’m not going with terrible…it was just a day that got away from us, like too many do. After reading up about what is happening in Syria, I feel so very, very blessed to live here and not anywhere near there. There is a part of me that wishes I could go and help get some of these kids out of there…to just leave and do it…but I could never leave my family, nor would I want them there with me to see this hell on earth. I will pray for them and I ask you all to do the same. Have a great Monday!
