Lesson Learned

Prompt 17 from #reverb10 is: What was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? How will you apply that lesson going forward?

I learned that I am NOT super woman!!

I can't keep a perfect house, chase a ten month old, keep showered all days, mow the lawn, grocery shop, make phone calls and run errands- all at the same time.

There have been many a days this year that I have felt that I failed in one (or more) of these areas. Honestly, if you drop by my house unannounced, I will most likely have a house that looks like a toy store exploded and a dirty kitchen from dinner the night before. I may or may not be showered. I would assume the first!

If you are a guest in my home, I just pray that I will have had time to run to the grocery store so that I may have more to offer than milk, cheese and condiments.

Going into next year, I will accept the fact that I am not perfect so that I do not self destruct when the second child of the house (third in our life) arrives to our frantic household!

Believe you me, I have been petrified by the thought of having two BABIES in this house!! I can barely keep my head above water as it is and now I think I might drown in chores.

I ask in advance, "please excuse my messy house".
