Out of It

So I haven't been doing much blog reading or writing for a few weeks now. We were out of town for 4 weeks and now I'm buried trying to unearth the bottom of the laundry pile and get de-junked before school starts. So, not only do I need to post pictures of mine and Dave's trip to Maui in May, I need to post pictures of our trips to California and Utah, Camryn's dance recital and all while I keep my perfectly-maintained tidy house looking gorgeous. (Yes, that was sarcasm.)

So my question of the day: I'm feeling the need to put some structure in my life. I feel like I am in a constant battle with chaos (that includes Dave and the kids). Is it worth trying to impose order on the disorderly? Or do I just embrace the disorderly and plant a big kiss on its chubby cheek?

I'll be pondering...

To every thing there is a season. There are days to strive for order and there are days to plant that kiss. And not worry about it.
Carry on!

Give it a big juicy kiss! I love chubby cheeks. All your kids are home. That's like trying to clean an oil spill when the well is pumping it out still.... Go enjoy the weather, and leave the cleaning for later.

I've decided that I cannot keep perfect order in the house. No matter how hard I try, how much I nag or how late I stay up getting every thing done. The kids (and that darling man I married) just go through the house undoing every thing too quickly! So I've decided to try and get organized in my mind. Even if the house is a disaster, if I know what I should be working on and don't forget to buy toilet paper when I am at the store--I am happy. Sanity for me, disorganization for the house. Does that make sense?

The kids will be grown and gone before you know it. Let go of the housework just a bit and enjoy the kids while they're home and while they still want to spend time with you!
