I have a Facebook account. It is filled with (mostly) real life friends and family and church members. Most of you know my blog is sort of a secret to those real life friends and family and church members. A few know. I like it that they don't know because I can talk a little more freely about things. Because of that, I don't advertise my blog on Facebook.
I do get real life feedback from those friends and family and church members on my Facebook status lines. And they made me doubt myself like... really.
"Brenda, you must not do anything but clean the house." (Note: stop talking about what I'm cleaning on Facebook)
"You must have the cleanest house in the world!" (Note: REALLY stop talking about housework on Facebook)
Realize I don't have anything else to say.
So WHAT is a girl to do??? Why, unload my drivel HERE on my blog!!! Where there is comment moderation!!!!
"Brenda, all you do is clean the house." DELETE!
"Brenda, who cares what you ate for lunch?" DELETE!
I'M KIDDING!!! (I don't moderate comments!) :)
So, in case you need to know:
*I had a salad for lunch.
And I am angry hungry now.
*I completely lost my patience with Sweetheart this morning. I feel really rotten about it but I had had it up to here (waving hand FAR above head). Yelling isn't productive. Must pray and think about a solution. And I have some questions for you all. Maybe tomorrow.
*We've pulled out the fall and winter clothes to take stock. They are everywhere and it isn't pretty.
*My dining room table is never clean. I paid bills on it Sunday. Or I'm sewing at it. Or someone is playing play dough on it. If it's clean and lovely, it means we aren't getting anything done.
*I have realized that people who always seem to have really clean, picked up houses don't really DO anything. No hobbies. No homeschooling. No sewing or crafts. That must be the secret of a clean house. Just watch TV and don't do anything. Hmm.
*Speaking of TV, I am really glad we don't have one. (TV service, I mean--we watch movies) I really am. I would have sworn on my grandmother's grave a few years ago that Sweetheart did not watch too much TV like OTHER children. But now that we don't have one, I realize just how much she did watch TV when she was younger and all I have to say is yikes.
I really hope that doesn't have anything to do with the patience problem I had this morning and the questions I need to ask you later. Because there is precious little I can do to correct her brain development in her preschool years.
*We took pictures of the girls doing their chores today for a new chore chart thing I'm doing and I'm in a few shots and all I have to say is I really wish I had Photoshop because I have NO ETHICAL DILEMMA with trimming mommy's waistline a bit and touching up that double chin.
*I peeled ONE potato last week and shoved the peel down the sink instead of throwing it away like S has told me to. I usually peel my potatoes into a Wal-Mart sack and toss 'em. But it was just one lousy potato so I gambled.
And I bet you've already guessed I lost.
S had to take the sink apart and get all the potato out and now it leaks and he has to rebuild the p trap. Who loves me?
See? Carbs really are bad.
