I've poured my life into...

I thought I would check in with
you to let you know that I am very busy.

Here's what I did today:

1. Hoed the weeds out of my corn garden.
It better pay off.
It better.
I've poured my life into that garden.

2. Made four loaves of bread for our church coffee bar.
Two loaves of banana nut chocolate chip.
Two loaves of cinnamon coffee cake.
It better be good.
I've poured my life into that bread.

3. I painted half my basement.
Ironically, I inadvertently picked out a fresh new
color....that is only about one shade
lighter than the current color.
I am so dang boring.
It better look good.
I've poured my life into that basement.

4. I took the kids out for a swim.
I had no time for such a thing.
But I do realize that a good mom spends time with her
So I took them out for a swim.
I hope they understand my sacrifice.
I've poured my life into these kids.

5. I made dinner.
I've poured my life into...

Oh never mind.

I also did all my other chores.

I won't list them here.
Although if anyone wants a detailed list,
I would be glad to share.

Tomorrow morning I'll be up early again,
baking bread and pouring my life into this crazy
life of mine.

For those of you with a glamorous lives of
fame and fortune,
beaches and tiki torches,
go away.
Far, far away.

Such a strange post.
Do I sound a bit whiny?

Did someone say wine?

I know how you feel. I feel like I'm spinning my wheels, and the messes are made, clothes dirtied, faster than I can clean them. But I wouldn't have it any other way, I know you wouldn't either=)
Blessed to be at home!!
