Dirty Grubby Clothes

Have you ever noticed how if your a mom (especially a mom with young children) your clothes are always dirty five minutes after you put them on. I put them on in the morning and they aren't stained or covered with food or any other gross things that seem to appear. But within minutes my shoulders are covered in items of unknown origins. Not to mention all the dirt stains on my pants from picking them up after they have been playing in the mud. I remember a not to distant time ago that I could actually wear a white top and at the end of the day still have it look white. Now I'm lucky if it will be completely white after I wash the top. It's gotten to wear I wear a lot of dark colors in hopes of hiding those spots that always show up. But I must admit it, I am tired of dark clothes. I want to wear light colors again and not have to spend a fortune washing and cleaning them. I guess it wouldn't be so bad if it only happens every now and then but for me it happens every day. I guess I am going to have to invest and buy stock in a company once they figure out what to do about all these stains. In the meantime I can only remember how once when I only had one child and he was about four, I wore light clothes on a regular basis. So for me that means I only have around three more years until I can do it again. Sigh, I hope I can wait that long.

Spring Fever

Sprint Fever,I definitely have it. I am itching to be outside in all the nice weather we have been having. I feel like getting the yard all fixed up and planting some new flowers. But instead I have been watching the children play out front with out getting much accomplished. Now that we are finally getting nicer weather we are also having all the problems that come with it. The allergies and asthma have been in full force in our house lately. So even if I can get that twenty minutes I need to work here and there in the yard it would cause an hour of wheezing inside. And while I know we would all enjoy the outdoor time I just hate it when they are to sick to enjoy it. So it's beautiful outside and we are still having to spend a lot of the day inside. Hopefully whatever is in the air will pass soon and we can all be outdoors again without the wheezing and coughing.

So Unmotivated

We have had so much going on the last two weeks that I am feeling so unmotivated to do anything now. My family was in town over the weekend and I should be trying to catch up on all that needs to be done around the house. But instead I am surfing the net and watching TV with the kids. At least I am working on laundry during all this but still that's only because it HAS to be done. What I really need to be doing is my devotional for tonight since I am not finished yet. But like I said I am unmotivated to do anything at all. Hopefully this laziness on my part will soon pass. Because I have a million things that need to be done. So now I hope to get off the computer and try to go fold some laundry and finish my devotional. Could this just be a case of sping fever? I hope so.
