I said I’d start this blog to keep it real but I should qualify, real to me. If you are one of those mums who can get it all done congrats. I don’t know you and I really think you are a fiction but heck, mermaids are fiction too but it’s fun to believe in them. Here’s what I have done so far this week that most likely wouldn’t admit to:
- I had to steal money from my big kid’s wallet to pay the cleaning lady. I couldn’t get my act together to make sure I had the exact amount on hand, $113.00. Really who has that perfect amount of cash together in the age of debit and credit? Thankfully my big kid hoards all her cash so the $8.00 I needed to top up the fee to get the house cleaned I had to steal from her. I did replace it with $10 so really she did come out ahead.
- I have a pair of navy velvet tights that I love. They are a size too small but I look fabulous in them when they stay done up. I wear a shirt long enough to cover the zipper so when it ‘pops’ open no one can see. But again, I am vain and they look great.
- I ate the last chocolate fudge cookie and likely 2/3 of the box. Double frosting. Might be why those pants in point 2 don’t fit. Yes packaged cookies, I don’t bake. I hate it. I hate the mess and the time it takes.
- To get my youngest to move into a gear I can work worth, I tell her the coyotes will get her. She will likely speak to a therapist about this and hate me but you know what, I am getting my stuff done.
There are likely more things that I have done but frankly I can’t even remember the drive to work in the morning so that’s enough for this ‘Keeping it Real Recall’.
Enjoy a cookie folks, it’s Wednesday. Good enough reason as any.
