If I get to the computer once or twice a day, I’m lucky. I do a lot of my thinking at the keyboard, because otherwise, my hands are full and I’m busy thinking about what I’m doing. Changing diapers, refilling cups of milk repeatedly, wiping fingers, tushies, and faces, making sure hair gets brushed once a week… you know, that sort of thing keeps me busy enough. I have about 6 loads of clean laundry that need folded. The dishes had sat for 2 or 3 days again without being washed when I did them last night. I had to have the bowl that pizza dough was in on Friday, I guess, so that’s how long it had been, so not forever, but a while. My biggest kid has only had her homeschooling stuff once since baby was born. I’ve lost track, but I think the baby has only had 3 baths in 6 weeks. The big kids only have it slightly better.
I love how people have new years resolutions, or lists of things they want to do. I even saw someone posting a listing of ‘things to do every day’ that included vacuuming the living area, sweeping the kitchen floor after every meal and wiping down the bathrooms and counters every day-those are just the items I remember, there were more. That would seriously take me all day long with everything else I have going. I can barely get a shower.
So.. you know 2 weeks late, I’ll just let you know that I ‘do’ think about things that would make my life more awesome this year. Happier, more productive, proactive, and have more fun types of things… but the minute something enters my mind, something else needs done, like a baby held, or wipe warmed…and I forget…one of these days I’ll have my head above water.. and I’ll be able to think for more than 30 seconds.. and maybe even resolve to do a few things…but for the moment–I guess I’ll resolve to just ‘be clean’ and shower. Good thing the internet doesn’t have ‘smell o vision’. Eau-de-stale breastmilk is not that yummy.
