Some days it is just impossible to deal with.
Take today, for instance. It is unbelievably gorgeous outside! A bright sunny 70 degree day! Gorgeous! So I said to myself, "Self, I know you have been wanting to stamp more. And I know you also want to be outside planting all those flowers you just bought. But really, look at the place. Why don't you just spend a little bit of time doing the housework and when you are done, you can stamp AND plant flowers."
Sounds reasonable to me.
Well, as I was merrily doing the housework, looking forward to my stamps and flowers, things started to go downhill fast. The housework got totally out of control. Soon there were shouts of, "You call that dusting?" and "What about the baseboards?" from some of the rooms!! The laundry room kept shouting, "Help, help, I'm drowning in dirty clothes!" and the kitchen started in about the floor being sticky. I swear, you give an inch and housework takes a mile! No respect.
Finally, I had had enough. If that is how housework is gonna act, then I'm done. When it has had a chance to calm down and think about its actions, I may start working with it again. But for now, i am stamping and planting. Actually, I just finished my stamping and now I'm blogging. :-)
I was going to take another stab at a baby card for our friends- I wasn't that pleased with the one that I showed you yesterday. But then I saw this challenge over at the Play Date Cafe. Um, YUM!! I just had to play.
I took a picture of my card outside by the flowers I need to plant!!
(I just realized that my plum and lavender don't look like the plum and lavender in the challenge photo!! Oops, I hope this still counts!!)
Well, I am off to plant some flowers and I don't know, maybe check on the housework. I may have been a little too harsh!!
I hope your day finds you without any unruly housework!!
