Mondays are one of those insane days where I feel like I am constantly running round in circles and dropping all the balls in the process.
It’s a day where I seem to do nothing more than drive back and forth between school and home and kinder and home and school and kinder and home and ballet and home. It’s like some crazy roller-coaster ride and I want to get off, but I can’t.
The more stretched I get the more I yell. The more I yell the more I get stressed. The more I get stressed the more things I screw up.
This morning I had a To Do List a mile long, with a tight deadline. It all started so well, but then it all went to hell in a hand basket…
I burnt a HUGE pot of rice that was to be our dinner. I spilt a cup of water into the basket of clean, dry washing. The big boy tripped over the toys he hadn’t put away and hurt his head and I think the baby may have eaten half a packet of crayons.
Somewhere along the way I lost my mind… I yelled at my boys, and at myself.
Yep, it’s crazy Monday all right, and something has to give.
Today the thing that has to ‘give’ is my blog.
I want to write a fabulous perfectly imperfect post, but it’s just not going to happen.
It is hard for me to walk away from something that I love, something that I had high up on my to do list for today. But I am not perfect, and I can’t do everything. My children need me more than my blog does. My boy needs me to go and do parent duty at kinder and my baby needs me to serve something more nutritious than crayons for lunch
So today’s lesson on being perfectly imperfect is bought to you by fish and chips for dinner and knowing when to cross things off your to do list and just walk away.
But before I go here is a quick perfectly imperfect printable for you. Print out and surprise a friend with one of these postcards. You can download them in a zip file here
And if you are having a perfectly imperfect day then why not join me and blog about it like Shae from Yay From Home did… this post is amazing! For more info on my Perfectly Imperfect month and link up check out this post.
