Inspiration Friday


I had another crazy week. I've been waiting for Friday since Wednesday.
My dining room will never look like this picture. I have papers scattered all over my dining room table, projects to finish (or start). I'm sure if I cleanup I will find my todo list...
Oh I almost forgot, I have both my kids playing soccer on Tuesdays and Thursdays, different times and parks of course. I need some time off. Some me time. Maybe if I declutter this weekend, I'll feel better. Yep, that's what I will do this weekend, decluttering, laundry, etc....
In other news, I found this cute poem, we can all relate to.
I Wanna Muffin.

If you give a mom a muffin, she'll want a cup of coffee to go with it. She'll pour herself some. Her three-year-old will spill the coffee. She'll wipe it up. Wiping the floor, she will find dirty socks. She'll remember she has to do laundry. When she puts the laundry in the washer, she'll trip over boots and bump into the freezer. Bumping into the freezer will remind her she has to plan supper. She will get out a pound of hamburger. She'll look for her cookbook. (101 Things To Make With A Pound Of Hamburger.) The cookbook is sitting under a pile of mail. She will see the phone bill, which is due tomorrow. She will look for her checkbook. The checkbook is in her purse that is being dumped out by her two-year-old. She'll smell something funny. She'll change the two-year-old. While she is changing the two-year-old the phone will ring. Her five-year-old will answer and hang up. She'll remember that she wants to phone a friend to come for coffee. Thinking of coffee will remind her that she was going to have a cup. She will pour herself some. And chances are, if she has a cup of coffee, her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it.

Yeah, I'm with you...my place doesn't look like that. Well, maybe for five minutes on a Saturday night, after my daughter has gone to bed. Other than that, chaos!

What I love about that poem is the "oh yeah, I've got to do that & that, & that & oh yeah, that...."
