I wish I had it together enough to be posting pictures today since I really need to but no- I am just sitting back reading blogs and totally waisting my time at the computer while the kids nap. The dishes are piled up, I haven't cleaned up from preschool this morning, I have books and paperwork all over the kitchen table and all over my bed that need to be organized, I have a big pile of clean clothes to fold and an even bigger pile of dirty clothes to wash, etc., etc., etc. but yet here I sit at the computer. I think I have come to realize that my house will always be at least sort of messy (if not very messy) and I am mostly ok with that. At the end of the day cleaning and organizing aren't my top priorities- learning new things, working on my "projects", reading books with Carter, and playing with Tay simply beat out dusting the piano or decorating my house. That said- I still would love to have a clean and beautiful home. Hmm. I am not sure where the balance is for me but I know I haven't found it. Drew has been asking for paint colors for months now so that he can start painting the interior of our house. I feel like I make millions of decisions every day for our family, preschool, birth stuff & community stuff, my church responsibilities, (bla bla bla) that having to make those decisions (like temporarily permanent paint colors) is a total total turn off and very overwhelming might I add. Oh how I wish it were warm out side- then I wouldn't even be thinking about this! I would be planning my next outing with the kids. Having a messy and undecorated house is much easier to handle when you aren't home to look at it :).
