Mundane, but never boring!
Well, I am in housework catchup mode. There are many areas of our home that I have been too busy to keep up on properly. My pantry, which I mentioned the other day is one of them. I suppose that I should take an after picture. It is amazingly better. Now, I am tackling laundry. "Laundry" should be a four letter word. It certainly is dirty and not very pleasant. Add my inconstancy with laundry and a household of eight people and you get a LAUNDRY MONSTER! So yesterday, I spent the bulk of the day washing, drying, folding, hanging, sorting clothes. My laundry room was piled full with clean laundry which I have sorted through. Now, my bedroom has stacks of out of season clothes, clothes that I am saving, but don't currently fit a child, but will, and boxes of clothes to donate. Of course this was all done amidst schoolwork, reading, meal prep, cleaning, as well as dealing with a certain 4 year old that God must have put into my life to make me realize that I am totally inept as a parent. Let's just say that when she is in a mood, I could tell her to go eat candy and she would feel the need to refuse just because I said it. [sigh] It is exhausting. Needless to say, this one child took a large chunk of my day yesterday. I am praying for wisdom and guidance from God, because nothing I have learned from my 17+ years of parenting is helping. God clearly has to intervene and I am depending on Him. Of course, that's right where He wants me now isn't it?
