CHAOS!!!

My life is in chaos. I work too much and try to home school the kids. I actually got a few closets clean today.

But that is why I haven’t been blogging regularly.  Well I have been writing in my blog I just don’t feel they are quite up to standard so they sit in the drafts box waiting and waiting and waiting……. for me to have time to fix them.

It as also hard to write when life goes like this.

Picture me writing on the computer having great great thoughts and honestly on to something that could yet be sold as the next great classic yet to help all mankind…..

Child #1 “mom whats this stuff called?”

Me “That is acrylic paint”

Child #1 “Can I paint with it?”

Me “No, but you can use the water colours in the school cupboard”

Child #1 “WAAAAA!!!”

Child #2 “Mom can I give one of these to the dog?” (it’s a peanut butter sandwich)

Me “No”

Child #2 WAAAAAAA!!!!

Child #3 “Mom where are my shoes?”

Me “Well dear seeing as I don’t wear your size of shoe I don’t know. Did you put it on the shelf when you came in from outside?”

Child #3 “Yes I did”

Me “Then it should be there”

Child #3 “But it’s not. Do you know where it is?”

Me – sigh  “no”

Both of us  “WAAAAA!!!!”

So all this in a 7 minute period.

I have yet to write the great modern classic that will save all humanity because I am trying to save my pocket of humanity from the unorganized chaos that is my life. But alas I hear the washing machine buzzing so off I go to save yet another load of laundry from evil mildew

I am finding joy in the journey of home schooling my 6 children. We have our faults and foibles just like everyone else, but we are trying to have a blast. I write about our life and whats on my mind. I hope you enjoy it.

    Peggy, you tell the story of my life. I want to be poised and organised and calm, peaceful and on top of things. My children prevent this. But maybe I prevent it too. Yep, that’s about it, we both do it.

    Don’t you hate saying no over and over again? I do, for sure. But it keeps happening when they ask these types of questions.

    or I should say we all do it and there are more of them so it is more their fault than mine.

    Peggy, write what you know! This stuff would sell in print. So many could relate!

    I’m with Lisa, you need to compile this and write a book. Honestly you know how to really catch the mother’s life and this would most certainly sell.

    This story is for you Peggy 🙂

    Stay at Home Mom’s
    A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard. The door of his wife’s car was open, as was …the front door to the house and th…ere was no sign of the dog. Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall. In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a Cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door. He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls. As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel. She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, ‘What happened here today?’ She again smiled and answered, ‘You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world do I do all day?’ ‘Yes,’ was his incredulous reply. She answered, ‘Well, today I didn’t do it….By: Jennifer Johnson
