and in the grand scheme of things ... "yeah!"
but you see, i'm one of "those people" who just craves routine & structure.
i do better in crisis.
the crazier things are, the more hectic...
the more organized and functional i become.
i loved back to school because i loved to be organized and have routine.
i always had better grades in school during swimming season...
when i worked full time... it was a very high stress chaotic setting working with mentally ill children.
when a child was in crisis, i was quick on my feet.
the more challenging the case the better therapist i was.
when things slow down.
i forget things.
hence am cranky.
subsequently cranky kids.
and the house becomes a bit messy!
these piles of laundry are waiting for me!
this isn't even all of it!
there are piles to be PUT away.
i hate putting them away!
my bathroom is suddenly "college dirty".
i'd consider myself a clean person.
i don't know if its from the increase in dirtiness from summer fun.
but my tub looks like a frat house tub.
i would take a picture and be more descriptive... but i think i'll leave your imagination to yourself on this one!
i can't let all my dirty secrets out of the closet!
am i alone here with this?!?!!?
i just can't seem to get anything done.
ok i'm off to get everyone tucked into bed and tackle the laundry... maybe!
oh... i also have to finish picking up all the beach toys that are piled up outside from being cleaned off after the beach today.
i suppose the bonus would be that i DID in fact clean them!
just didn't put them away.
