Do you ever just want to scream?

It started off as one of those days. Ya know what I mean? From the time I woke up things were going full speed and not in the direction I wanted. The kids had made themselves cereal, and a big mess for me. I got the dishwasher going, and laundry started, and then the power went out. Vacuuming wasn't going to happen, and neither was my shower. I was irritated. And then for whatever reason, I decided to stop stressing.

That little voice in the back of my head reminded me to enjoy this day with my kids. I don't have many days home where we don't have plans. So, it's noon. We're in our pj's. The power came back on and the laundry finished and the dishwasher ran. I scrubbed one bathroom. The other is still dirty and my couch is covered in clean laundry and ya know what? That's okay. I can vacuum tomorrow. The clean laundry can sit one more afternoon. I'm going to go make a craft with my kids. And we'll probably make a mess. And that's okay too.
