Calgon Take me Away

There are days when I wish those words were true. That you could just wish on a bubble bath and me taken away for awhile. Days like this where Im tired, no rest in site and a ton of work sitting before me. Im sure, this too will pass, but for now Im a tad bit grumpy.

A coworker of mine mentioned that she spends 20 dollars a week on groceries and does 1 load of laundry a week. This, compared to my 20 loads of laundry a week and 100 dollars a week on groceries seemed miraculous. I found myself wishing for those kinds of costs and amounts of work. What dawned on me shortly after though was that shes alone. She lives by herself and I wouldnt want that even for 1 load of laundry a week. yes its a lot of work somtimes living with this crew but I'm rarely ever alone unless I want to be. That is a blessing in itself.

Well, laundry is calling my name and a million other projects and if i sit sleep will over take me. With 5 kids age 5 and under here today, not a good plan.

    The fact that we have been getting by on $100 a week for food (sometimes more) is miraculous in and of itself.
