When I woke up this morning I was determined to get this house clean, and I mean clean. Dh and I, as well as both girls have spent the entire day cleaning. I am pooped! I am happy to say that as I sit here in the schoolroom it has a wonderful clean feel to it. Now to keep it that way. Laundry is almost finished and dh is making dinner. After dinner dh and the girls are going to work with Sonja and I am going to read a book. Ok, I admit it will be hard to read with my eyes closed, but I believe it can be done. We shall see.
My topic of the day. Do you ever have one of those days when you feel like you just can’t be a mother anymore. Don’t get me wrong on that one. I wouldn’t take anything for my kiddos. My thoughts are more towards the fact of the responsiblities of a mother. Mainly the housework and keeping thing in order. Today was one of those days. Everytime I turned around the girls were bickering. I am working on several ways to try and get them to cool it a little. I hope I can find one that works. I want to be a fun mother, not the type who always has cleaning to do or something that takes her away from her children. So I guess that is where I am really going with this topic. I want to be able to be a mother to my kids, not a mother to our house. Did that make sense. If not forgive me as I am fading fast as I sit here and type. I am soooooo tired today. I am ready for a good night’s sleep so I can get up feeling refreshed and cheery for tomorrow’s school day.
