I want to see a show of hands, ladies: How many of you feel like you wake up, run a marathon, and collapse into bed???? How many of you don’t like that? How many of you wish you had a little more control over your day? Who knows how to do that???
You might think I’m joking, but I’m serious about those questions and I really want to see your hands. Not everyday, but a lot of days, I feel like that…a marathon runner. I wake up and there’s kids up shortly after. I have a list telling me my chores, but I hardly ever get them all done and really that is fine…I understand this is not the time in my life to be accomplishing large goals, but still. I feel like ohmylord I have four kids now. FOUR! And each of them has unique and constant needs and I am with them, taking care of those needs every. single. hour of the day. That’s a lot of responsibility, folks. And it doesn’t leave a whole lot of time for things like: brushing my teeth, reading, working out, patience.

Back to yesterday. I got up early and so did Vera. So we took some time before the big kids got up to make pumpkin muffins. They were really good and now Vera knows how to bake, so I feel like it was a total win-win.
The rest of my day kinda stunk. There was a lot of arguing and bickering and that makes me so crabby! In the back of my mind though, I kept thinking to myself: at least there were pumpkin muffins for breakfast. Like it was a little bit better because we had a warm, cozy breakfast. Maybe I was crabby and maybe I yelled and maybe I ended up in a sweat from running in circles all day, but damnit there were pumpkin muffins. And when we tucked in the kids last night and asked them what they were thankful for today, you can bet one of them said pumpkin muffins.
