Focus LaDonia Focus

Do ya ever have one of those times when you need a GREAT BIG reality check. I do. (More often then I care to admit) The latest occurred while my loving husband was trying to go to sleep cux he has to get up at 4:30am and I was busy whinging about all my undone chores. (By whinging I mean trying desperately to find a way to blame the undone jobs on anyone other than myself.......cuz that's how I roll.) After a two or three minute rampage I ended with something like I feel like I am letting you down, when I don't get these things done. (cuz then I don't seem like I am whining so much) Do you want to know what HE said? If your answer was yes, continue reading. If your answer was no, STOP here. (But why don't you want to know?----FOCUS LADONIA FOCUS!) He said, STOP IT! (Not the response I was hoping for.) He reminded me that our home may not be perfect and things may not be TOTALLY organized but I spend my day doing what He considers to be very important. I take care of our family and help anywhere I can, so if he has to over look a little mess every now and then that was fine. He reminded me that I put this things on myself. I told me he loved me and went to sleep.(Cuz he still has to get up at 4:30am) So I laid there and chewed on it for a while and you know what? HE WAS RIGHT!!!! So I am officially removing myself from the PERFECT HOUSE club. While I don't want CHAOS (Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome) a family of SIX lives here. AND BOY DOES IT SHOW!

Yes, and let's all try to remember that LaDonia was over at Jenny's house this morning before Jenny was even dressed. And what was LaDonia doing? Returning the pool vaccum that hubby forgot he had.

I think you do a great job!

And I'd never expect you to get up at 4:30...5 maybe, but never 4:30.
