Selfish

Monday, August 18, 2008

Not only is the kitchen clean, but I’ve kept it clean.  That’s just unheard of around here.

I’ve caught up on laundry.

I’ve put recycling and garbage in the garage where it should be.

I’ve paid attention to the dog and the cat (the cat, begrudgingly, needs medicine right now, horrible thing).

I’m learning, not surprisingly, that life would be easier with one kid.  Not better.  Easier.

Or is it the absence of the husband that is making the difference??  Ha ha.

Actually, it’s mainly giving me hope that when they are both older, there will be more time to breathe.  I’ve been able to do stuff like read the newspaper the day it arrives, get on the computer not just during naptime, shower, tidy, whatever – just because I wanted to.  I’ve forgotten what that was like.  I know, I know, I know it’s going to get better.  It’s hard to see past the end of a regular day, though.  So now I’ve experienced life as it might be when Callum is 2.5 and Oliver is 4.5 and things could be pretty cool around here.

    It’s definitely the absence of the husband that’s making things easier – men just tend to get in the way and cause trouble.
    I guess we wouldn’t be without them though.

    Yeah, I guess
