It’s a great song and I think of it often. It reminds me that no matter what, To live in the here and now. It’s no use to get frustrated over silly things (or things that are not so silly). Some day I’ll look back on this and just smile.
Tuesday, May 8th, 2012.
Throughout the day, I had a certain song in my head.
Both boys woke up sick.
Washing Machine that is only 2 months old decided to flood.
I had a mini freakout on the phone with Sears.
I will be without a Washing Machine until Friday.
Every towel in the house was used to soak up all the water. We are using small dishtowels and wash cloths when we shower. (it’s actually pretty funny)
There is damage to the house because of the flood.
There is a mess in just about every room in the house.
The kids refuse to clean up.
The kids decided they were going to wear multiple outfits today.
Chris HATES getting his picture taken. Constantly putting his hand up, looking/running away, blocking himself every time the camera comes out.
Kids get better so I took them out to test out a new location (for five minutes).
Of course, Chris pouted the whole time.
When I try to take a photo of Chris while he’s not looking, Mikey photobombs it.
There’s always toothpaste in the kid’s sinks.
I can never get them to make up their beds. I don’t even try anymore.
You know – it doesn’t really matter. I love my kids, my husband and my life. It’s really not so bad. (It’s pretty great actually.) The kids will grow up. I’ll miss the toys all over. I’ll miss the pouts and constant complaining from Chris. As do all kids, they grow and change. And they will move out of the house. Have their own families, kids, toys, mess, complaints. And I will miss it.
Then come back and GO TO CLARA’S PLACE to see her always to pretty imagery!
