So, my life feels kind of insane right now. I am overscheduled. I am thinking at some point things will slow down, or maybe I will be better at managing all of it?
There is just no down time right now. We get up, eat breakfast, start school, finish school sometime between 2-3 p.m. and then we have all the extra stuff like soccer, karate, voice lessons, scouts, piano lessons, church activities… And then once those are done, it is time to do dinner and bedtime and then I should probably clean but mostly I just flop onto the sofa and don’t move anymore.
And about a million times a week I think about some hilarious blog post I should write about something cute Lydia said or something crazy Kitty did, but without fail when I get two seconds to sit down on the computer and consider blogging, I am blank. And then it is time to go to soccer practice or something, so it doesn’t really matter.
And I just fired my cleaning ladies on top of everything else, because I swear to you, they were TRYING to get fired. That is the only explanation for how badly they were cleaning this place. Part of me suspected that they hated cleaning here and that they couldn’t say, “You know what? We hate this house and we never want to come back.”
But, I irrationally felt that by firing them they would win. Even if they hadn’t cleaned one of our bathtubs in 2 months… I just couldn’t let them win. I kept them on to PUNISH them for their terrible work. Finally, they called my bluff… their cleanings became SO TERRIBLE that I could not in good conscience continue to pay them for it. Because, I can have a badly cleaned house for free, thankyouverymuch.
And I will, mark my words.
