Less Than Perfect Day of Bliss

Some days I feel like super-woman.  I am a super-wife and super-super-mom.  My day passes with ease.  Life is a breeze.   Some days I feel like my feet weigh a hundred pounds.  I can't seem to move them, even though I have a million things to do. 

Some days I take great pride in my ability to keep all the socks matched and neatly placed in their containers.  Some days I couldn't care less if they poke out of the dresser for the duration.

Some days my freshly laundered clothes go directly from the clothes dryer to the dresser, shelves or closet.  Some days I just throw the baskets of clean laundry on the floor and hope it will all magically find its way where its supposed to go.

Some days teaching my child to read is a really, truly easy.  Some days I feel they had to be kidding when they titled this book.  Thankfully tomorrow is another day, a new beginning and prayerfully not another "less than perfect day of bliss".

I think we all have good days and bad. Some days I do 4-5 loads of laundry, then other days I let it pile up. Same goes with dishes, cleaning, etc. My husband always says it would be easier if I just did one load of laundry every day instead of letting it pile up and then doing a whole bunch in one day, but I guess my brain isn't wired that way. :) Here's to a happy Friday!

We all have those days! I have felt like I'm walking in cement this week. Tomorrow is a new day thank goodness!

Shirley said...

I'm having one of those days myself! I hope tomorrow is better :)

Tomorrow is a new beginning indeed, although I'm pretty sure my laundry will sit folded in baskets for another week. {sigh} It is what it is. It's the yin and yang of life it least for me! Sending a prayer that tomorrow is one of the easy days.

I used that same reading book with my youngest child a couple of years ago. We struggled some, but she ended up learning to read beautifully.

Hope you get more done tomorrow. Have a great rest of your week.

That just means you're normal!

Each day is different. There's not a woman out there who doesn't have days like that!

I think I'm having that kind of year...But, I KNOW it will get better and one day, the laundry will not be on the living room chair, right??
I think I have that book...need to break it out!!
Hope you have a great weekend!!

Jenni said...

Oh yes, I hear you! Especially on the super woman thing one day, not so much the next day! :) It has been one of those weeks over here! Love this post, girl!

Hugs to you (along with a prayer that tomorrow is much MUCH better!)~

P.S. But hey, tomorrow will be a better day for both of us because we get to meet for lunch~ yea! :) See you at 11:30!

So much that you do is truly amazing that sometimes what you do just has to be ordinary. Today might be one of those ordinary days..... it is very likely that tomorrow will be extraordinary in comparison... and you will only understand that it is so amazing by comparing it to the ordinary day that you had today! My day was really, really ordinary today ..... so I am thinking that I will appreciate my tomorrow all the more too! I just wish I had a sister big enough to have lunch with me (my half sister is only 2!) Have a happy tomorrow! God bless! X

I know exactly what you mean about those days with 100lb feet! Only, I just leave the laundry in the dryer so I don't have to look at it ;)

michelle said...

Oh, I have those days as well my friend! Nothing seems to go right, the littlest things seem like the biggest! But you are right, tomorrow is another day and I hope that it will a bright and wonderful day for you! :)
