Here are a few areas in my house right now that need an overhaul:
The backyard: the kids have so much stuff out there, it's insane- and EVERYWHERE. It looks like the dollar store threw up all over- minus the big stuff, which is mostly turned over. Needs to change people!
This one kills me- this is the top of the fridge. Yes, that's Santa and Mrs Claus.
And that's Goof Off ^^
What the heck?
This is right next to the fridge- there is just crap all over.
Yeah, this one isn't small- this is our "Harry Potter closet". It is our ONLY closet, besides the ones in the bedrooms. No kidding- NO STORAGE in this stupid house. This is a major project that needs to be taken care of yesterday.
But you see.... these little things that are driving me crazy and are needed to be taken care of, were over shadowed by other little things. Little things that made today, great.
We started the day off with a cozy, rainy, gloomy looking morning, which I happen to LOVE. We went to church and had an awesome service. Honoring our veterans and learning about God's grace is not a bad way to start your morning. I do have to say though, that church was overflowing with BRAND new babies. Seriously, they were invading and I was having a hard time standing my ground (you know: NOT having any more kids), plus the girl next to us had a brand new, adorable baby boy and I think she was as skinny as Delaney- God was really testing me on my grace in that moment. Just sayin'. After church, we went to have breakfast at my parent's house where we played with the keyboard (I rocked Amazing Grace and The Star Spangled Banner) and then watched the kids dance to a Led Zeppelin RECORD, yes that's right, vinyl y'all!
When we got home, the kids went to sleep, I went to Kohl's with my mom for some shopping and when I got home, it was still cloudy, the kids were just getting up, I read the new US Weekly and watched my man, Brian Urlacher, kick some Lion butt.
(That's not Brian Urlacher, but that was the final score:)
Delaney played with her babies, Brody played with his trains, they played with each other and the dogs were right there in the middle of it.
So you see, even though I have all these little things hanging over my head right now, I know that I
was supposed to ignore those today and be grateful for the little moments that I had with my family today. What a nice Sunday!
Btw... those irritating little things, WILL be taken care of soon!
