Random Musings for Tuesday

These summer days are killing me... we are busy, as always, and I can't seem to get motivated and STAY motivated to get any of those big summer tasks completed.  I wanted to de-clutter the house this week and do some BIG cleaning chores.  Instead, I've taken the girls swimming, to gymnastics, to cheer camp a couple of days now, and to the "big town" to buy some groceries.  The duffel bags from our trip are all still packed and sitting in the floor.  The laundry remains, a big ugly pile, staring at me and mocking me from the hamper.  The yard is a disaster... I haven't blogged about it much, but a few months ago we began a major landscaping job... adding beds, grass, a retaining wall, sprinklers, the whole 9 yards.  Unfortunately, we've seen no new work done in about 2 months now.  Grrrrrr... very frustrating.  It's really a mess.  The most grass we have is inside the flower beds.  Some day, I truly think it will look amazing, but NOW... not so much.  

Anyway, all that to let you know where I'm coming from.  A disorganized MESS that is currently my life!  Usually when I start to feel this way, it isn't long before I convince myself to get busy and DO something about the things that are bothering me.  (Like opening a can of WHOOP-A** on that landscaper!!!! ;-) ha ha)  

But, not yet.  For now, I'm going to whine about it all.  Because SOMETIMES that makes me feel a little bit better.

Cheer up; you can do it. Remember, the whiny juice is in the pantry! Love, Mom
