No day generally starts out well in my house. Mornings pretty much suck. Keagan usually does pretty well - as long as I hound him. I think only one time this year has he gone off to school mad (and it wasn't my fault - he was just being a bratt). I've been trying not to push Malea in the mornings - or lecture her about anything. Our really bad days happen because she falls back asleep multiple times and I just don't have time to constantly run upstairs and make sure she is getting ready.
Yesterday went seemingly well all around. I had to leave earlier since I had to drive to Grand Rapids. The conference went well and the weather was nice for the drive. I was able to get home earlier than expected and went to check on my kitchen cupboards. They were in - so that made me excited. I went to the house - put up some lights (that was quite a task), swept a little and went to get the trailer so I could take it home to pick up my cupboards today.
When I got home though - things just blew up. The kitchen was super messy (I had it almost clean the day before). Malea was supposed to load the dishwasher since I was out of cups and I really wanted to have a cup available when I got home. The dishwasher was still going - she said there was an issue and it never started. She never put half the cups in the dishwasher - so at least I could hand wash a cup. Then - my favorite dessert pan broke because she put it on top of everything and it just fell and broke in to a million pieces :( I had planned to do quite a bit of cleaning - but decided that would make me more mad - so I just went to bed. I talked to Malea and said she had to help out - she said she tried but I still got mad. She'll stay home for hours at a time and get like 15 minutes of work done - I don't think that is trying :( Why am I the only one (out of currently 4 other people) that can put trash where it goes, take out the trash, clean the bathroom, put dirty dishes in the sink, vacuum, pretty much everything :( If my house wasn't so dirty - I'd hire someone to clean it....but I can't ever get it to that point and stay there for more than a day.
Hoping today is a better day! I'll be picking up my cupboards and at least getting them in the house. I'll get the bases installed Saturday - minus maybe one since I haven't figured out the plumbing for the sink yet.
Keagan is insisting we go to his school pie social tomorrow. I really did not want to go - it leaves me a whole night of not working on the house. There is a bouncy house apparently - so I guess we are going. I can at least get some cleaning done at my own house - and laundry done with me going away next week.
I am a wife and mother of 2. I have many different interests - baking, home renovations, music, education ;)
