Thursday...

Yes, it's Thursday. And this week I've accomplished close to nothing. Morgan asked me last night, in his very sensitive way, if I ever cleaned while Owen was napping! I don't know if I've mentioned it or not but Morgan is not sensitive. So he started the question with "don't take this the wrong way...." And how am I supposed to take that question, exactly?! I am aware of the clutter that is closing in on us. I'm also aware of the floors that have not been washed in two weeks. He is supposed to be in charge of this. I'm also keenly aware of the baby who is not sleeping through the night any more. So when Owen naps, I try to nap. And today the naps are not looking good.

So...

Morgan, when you read this... TRY CLEANING THE DAMN HOUSE YOURSELF FOR ONCE!!

Today's 2P's challenge is: Today is the 2nd day of spring, officially,
What have you done, so far to officially welcome in the new season????

To celebrate the beginning of spring I have stopped wearing a coat. I refuse to wear my coat. I will wear a sweatshirt with a vest over it but I WILL NOT WEAR A COAT! No more gloves either. This is the time of year when I've had enough. I do not want to have an undershirt, a sweater, and a coat all bunched up in my arm pits! I don't like my clothes to be bulky and uncomfortable. I have some issues with this.

I have no pictures to post because I've done next to nothing in the creative department this week. I have Aimeslee's journal waiting for me but since she has RULES for it the ideas are coming slowly.

Today the sun is shining. Hopefully that will warm things up a bit. Including my mood.

Now I'm going to get the baby-who-does-not-sleep and put him in the exersaucer and see if he will be still while I wash up!

You know, for a small fee of things like cookies, cake, candy, (hates to admit)yarn or ice cream I can be employed to do various household duties.. Or you could just ask nicely and I'd help you out :)

I just love your post here today Heather. I have been feeling the same way here! My kids just look at their crap and think I'm going to be the maid forever. Not true! DH seems to be thinking the same way lately. I pretty much left him the same message you left Morgan. Clean it yourself!
Good luck with Owen today and I hope that he settles down for at least one nap for you today.

Heather you are so not alone in this sea of cluttered toys and messiness. A cluttered house makes me feel the same way. Especially when you feel you're unappreciated by your hubby. I'm sure Morgan will make it up to you and things will work out at the end.
Don't be afraid to ask for help, if I was near by, I'd come over and help you clean up or watch Owen for you. I really hope Owen sleeps well tonight.

I like how your post is very honest. I hate the clutter in my house as well. My boys room is the worst. I sure hope you get some rest while Owen naps. Its hard when they dont sleep thru the night. I wish I could help you

This is Heather's insensitive husband. She doesn't exactly sound like a "child of God," does she? Or is she just taking a break? Maybe she should just "let go" as her motto suggests.

I may have to do the same after I pick my broken teeth off the floor. And then wash it.
