SOOO much better

Well, I think we are ALL better here in the Chambers household! I'm so thankful for that! On Tuesday morning, Toby started feeling bad and by that afternoon it had hit me too. He had more of a tummy ache while I just felt awful all over. Jonyn also had four bad dipes that afternoon.

Tuesday night I thought I was going to freeze to death; I was so cold. That was due the fever I started running. It was not fun. I ran fever all day Wednesday til about 7:30 or 8:00 last night. Toby started feeling better by midday yesterday and Jonyn seemed better too. He only had one dirty instead of FOUR! I was glad. Toby doesn't like changing dirties with the cloths....imagine ;) I slept most of the day. Jonyn and I had quite a long nap about mid afternoon. It was nice, but it made it hard to fall asleep last night. But I don't mind that seeing as how I feel about 110 times better today!!

I even went to the grocery store this morning after dropping the big boys off. I plan on catching up on some cleaning and laundry today. My house is AWFUL!!!! There's generally always stuff scattered about my house, but right now it looks like a tornado ran through it........ it be bad!! Right now I feel like there's so much to do and I'm not going to be able to catch up.

I also have TONS of editing to do that is supposed to be done by tomorrow, but having sick kids and being sick myself kind of made that less of a priority. I'm going to try and get it done, but we'll see what happens.
My house MUST get straightened up before I can do anything else.

Choosing between making my home a priority or making my business a priority is sometimes difficult for me. It's so HARD for me to find balance and be happy with that balance. I haven't found a comfortable balance that works for everyone in the house yet. I'm sure I'll get there. THE biggest personal struggle I deal with is laziness. I struggle with that more than anything else.

I am a Primetime TV junkie and I would rather sit and watch TV when the kids are at school or playing than anything else. It's sad, but it's the truth. Lately I've been REALLY bad about making my daily list and doing the chores that need to be done. I'm sure others struggle with these things too, but I feel like a failure as a wife and mom because of it at times.

That's the real me, the me that has just recently learned to be okay if someone sees my house when it's not totally straightened (I use to flip out about people seeing it messy). I've come to terms with the fact that messy and parenting go hand in hand. I will tell you this... the one thing I ALWAYS do before someone comes over is CLEAN MY TOILET! Yep, I'm a nut about that. IT.MUST.BE.DONE!! I have to do that even if my dishes are piled up and disgusting, and even if dirty clothes are lying on the bathroom floor, I have to clean my toilet!!! Anyhow, I'm off to fold laundry and then clean the house! Have a great Thursday!!
