I am sitting here in my house that needs to be cleaned (as usual) imagining my perfect day. I would wake up early, work out, read my Bible, get showered, wake the girls and get them ready, make a healthy breakfast and eat with them while having a family devotion, get Ainsley to school, come home and do some chores, blog, do an art project or letter of the day with Renah, have lunch with Wade and let Renah play, have a little time to myself to have coffee and read more blogs, make a delicious dinner, play with the girls, get them ready for bed, have quality time with Wade and be in bed by 10:30. But even typing it makes me tired!
I think we as women have such high expectations of ourselves and when we fall short (because we will) we feel like we have failed as a wife, mom, and woman. I am not saying to let it all slide like I have been lately, but not to hold who we are in what we do. Those are just the thoughts I am having right now.
Also, last night I was watching "17 kids and counting" b/c I am fascinated by that show and would love to have a large family with better hair and clothes b/c deep down, I'm still kindof shallow! Anyway - I derailed! They were making their own laundry detergent. They can make their own for about $3 for 2 months worth for a family that size. Then today, I was reading a blog and she said she made her own as well. I love making things myself! I always make Christmas presents and am really intrigued by making my own laundry detergent. I may try it, maybe in part b/c it fits into my ideal day and doing so much! What is your ideal day?
