Keeping it real

I think I have been giving you a lopsided view of my world. Yes, I have been making lots of crafty stuff (like my amazingly awesome sweater). Yes, I have been cooking and baking (and enjoying it for the most part). But things in my world are far from perfect. My house has been a disaster area for weeks. I just haven't felt like cleaning lately. Also, I have a HUGE pile of dirty clothes in my basement. After the whole washing a crayon fiasco, I have been avoiding laundry at all costs. So in case you thought I had completely transformed into Suzie Homemaker, think again. I am still a woefully inadequate mommy/housewife.

I feel like I really need to shape up in the mommy department. I have been very short tempered with my kids lately. Every little thing they do pisses me off. It is probably because I am too distracted with my crocheting projects and my baking to properly pay attention to them. To make up for my sub-par parenting skills, I plan on taking Porgie and Izzy to the local nature center this week.

I guess what I am trying to say is that it is really hard to be perfect. Don't let my recent posts fool you. I try hard to be good at everything I do, but I always end up falling short. Such is life, I suppose. Fortunately, these two little cuties make me continually strive to be a better person...

I hadn't cleaned my house in WEEKS (months?) before yesterday, and that was only because my mom was coming to visit. Cleaning with my son around was a HUGE PAIN IN THE ASS. I yelled at him like 14 BILLION times and felt bad EVERY TIME. It's just hard to get ANYTHING DONE with a pint-sized mess maker getting in your damn way all the time.

So, you have excuses. Valid ones.
