I was commenting on a blog and my comment became my blog - CaptainJerry, a new sparkpeople member, blogged "I Crave Organization,"
urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=4314207 and the following is my reply:
Nothing about my life has ever been "ship-shape and Bristol fashion" but I can "C-clamp" with the best of them. So there, I used them!
Not entirely true - my life is ship-shape and Bristol fashion because I am able to prioritize - living well is more important than living "neatly" - to me.
For all my clutter, I know that my DH comes first, nourishment second, the last room in the house to ever get straightened out is my own personal bathroom. Why? Not because I am not worth it - I am worth it.
But I married a man 30 years my senior and while my bathroom will always be there and always be messy, my loving DH will not.
Uh-oh! I see a blog here - thanks C.J.!
P.S. Yes, I do envy those people with spotless homes, but I am just not one of them and accept the fact that I most likely never will be. I thank God every day for my DH, my loving family and my own good health.
Think I should pray for cleanliness?
Nah - I'd really rather just be healthy and happy.
Before she died, Erma Bombeck said if she had it all to do again, she would clean less and play more. I'm with Erma!
