A few words, because I really really don't want to clean up the kitchen right now. Today it rained and it was cold and I was desperate to go back to bed. In the spirit of wanting to snuggle into a warm bed all on my own I purposed to spend the day enjoying the girls. While Frankie napped this morning we got every pillow we could find and snuggled on the big bed and read books. Then we played some other Ada and Margot manufactured games, watched the washer wash a load of dish towels, had a play visit from some good friends in their jams and rain gear. My mind told me that while Frankie was being such a good napper today I should at least get the bathrooms cleaned.. or dust.. or fold laundry. Didn't do it. Feel good about it. Here's the catch though... tomorrow morning I all the desires to clean up that I kept at bay will come flooding out and my day will be a scrambling sort of a day. These are the days that I wear myself out cleaning the house "at the last minute" because the temptation to have a clean house, and thus a worry free Saturday morning, are too overwhelming. Annoying right? I might even get cranky because inevitably it will be sunny outside.. and I will resist the urge to be out in that sun because my time is up.. it is Friday and certain things will need to be done so that I can not be a crazy lady the next day. I will kick myself for not having done all that cleaning on this rainy day.. but I didn't want to clean... I wanted to cuddle my littles. UGH. So my question to you is.. it's all fine and good to ignore the housework in favor of spending the day with your children.. but then how do you keep from being a jerk the next day because you have twice the work piled up? I am pretty sure I know the answer but I just wanted to see if any of you did.
