First of all, I want to say thanks to all of my blogging friends and your words of encouragement..... They are all things I "know", but just sometimes need to "hear". I need to hear and be reminded that it's ok to be overwhelmed and that it's ok to feel like I want a day off...I'm only human!!! Anyway, I did get most of my stuff done last night-- helped the kids finish their homework, unloaded the dishwasher (even though, I really wanted to wait one more day so our cleaning lady would do it), put away most of the laundry (only towels left) and even had time for some playing with the kids..... Although, I will admit, it was a cereal-for-dinner night; I just couldn't resist. I woke up feeling much better since most everything is done and I don't feel like I'm buried and I really hope I can stay out of that funk...I hate it!!!
Today is Writer's Workshop again.... Head over to Mama Kat's to check out everybody's "assignments". I chose #1: I'd walk a mile for a nanny/housekeeper/personal chef for one week (shoot, I'd even take it for one or two days). It would give me time to refresh and be taken care of myself, without having the worry of managing everything at the office and at home and at the kid's schools. I would have them help with all the kid stuff (homework, dinner, baths, dessert) and for once I would get to be the "fun one"...the one who gets to play with them and not be the meanie because I'm stressed out. The housekeeper could pick up after us all day and make sure that when I come home from work, the house is spotless and the laundry is done EVERY DAY (we have a cleaning lady now, but she only comes once a week). And the chef....well, first of all, he needs to be a hot chef so I can enjoy watching him cook (and yes, I do think Joe is hot too...and I do enjoy watching him cook too--- but this is my dream right now...let me enjoy it). He would make all of my favorite dinner meals, make the kids lavish breakfasts every morning, and make their lunches to be the envy of all the other kids.
While all this sounds wonderful, I do find a few problems that could arise: 1) I would get bored, I just know it. I get bored when the boys go to their dad's house and I'm only looking after Angie, 2) the kids would be too spoiled by it and when it all ended, I couldn't live up to those expectations and 3) I would be too spoiled by it and be bummed once it ended. So, I guess the moral of this; the lesson I am supposed to learn is to enjoy the life I have been given. Enjoy the kids now, because before I know it, they will all be grown up and out of the house (hmmm....that still doesn't sound all that bad.... j/k) and I will miss the life that I have now!!!
