It has been awhile since I have written or felt as though I have time to write. Ironically, this has been the busiest week of the past 6 months. I graduated nursing school, got into a residency program, and started my new job on Monday (yay!!). Needless to say, there have been logistical things to work out between child care and getting both my husband myself to work. So this morning, I actually don’t have any classes, but will be meeting with my manager to go over some paperwork and such. Which meant I got to sleep in a little bit and ease into the day. Hence, the writing. So when I came downstairs this morning I got a good look at what hadn’t been done. Which inspired this:
The Not-So Spotless House
The toilet’s not been scrubbed in a week
There are dishes in the sink
The floor’s not spotless
There is laundry to be done
The playroom floor is free of toys
but on the table–
projects in the works are stacked
I stand and look
I’m clearly slaking
On all these chores
But I’m OK with that.
I’ve worked a full week
The hubby too
and given the choice between playtime and dishes
I’d rather make memories with the kids,
There’s lots of time left to teach,
These little ones how to clean and be neat.
So for now I’ll smile when I see
the happy mess that surrounds me.
For here the house may not be perfect
but my kids know their loved
and that’s more important.
P.S. One of these days I’ll get around to posting about all the craft projects and photography I’ve been working on over the past 6 months. Happy Friday!
