Monotony definition according to American Heritage Dictionary: “Tedious sameness or repetitiousness.” You can say that again! Ha.
Yesterday was one of those days when I let it all get the best of me: laundry, dishes, vacuuming, diaper changes, meals, errands, picking up toys, handling temper tantrums, letting the dogs out AND repeat. By the end of the day, I was annoyed, tired, and my fuse was short. Some days the monotony of it all catches up to me.
Some people have asked how can I fit this blog and all of my furniture refinishing in with everything else. I can’t. It’s hard. I feel like I’m never doing anything really well and I’m struggling to do it all better every day. At the same time, how can I not fit it in? Writing this blog, furniture refinishing, antiquing and all things related to it, are actually what keeps me sane. I need this outlet to break up all that other stuff. It reminds me that I’m not just errand girl, boo boo kisser, cook, maid, and regular ole’ house slave.
I realize that a natural disaster could occur and all of the superficial things I work on, like interior decorating, home remodeling projects, redoing that tired piece of furniture, or a DIY craft I made could be gone in an instant and all that will matter in the end is my family. In the meantime, it all helps me get through the mundane day-to-day chores and it makes me happy. I look forward to writing and I enjoy the creative outlet of dreaming up ideas to share with you. I need it.
I read a quote from Susan Sarandon in a magazine yesterday that I’ll share with you. When asked “How do you balance work and family?” She answered, “I feel like I need to balance better – like I’m doing everything badly! You have to forgive yourself for not being perfect. My house is a mess. I find permission slips I was supposed to sign two weeks late. But that’s the life of a modern mom. Any woman who works in and out of the house is amazing.”
So there. Now that I’ve let you in a little bit, I best get back to the laundry, cleaning off the table, getting the kids dressed, making a run to Target, figuring out what I’m going to make for dinner tonight and on and on and on . . . the difference is today I will try to have more patience and will practice self-forgiveness.
