Last week a relative arrived, unannounced at our house. Now there are 7 people plus pets who all live in my house. All of these people, including me, make messes so why is it that I'm the only one that cleans up? Oh, that's right it's my job because I'm mom.

I pretended to be ill and we talked in the foyer for a few minutes and then she left. You see the house was a mess. I had 2 large baskets of laundry in the livingroom waiting for someone, oh yeah me to put the clothes away. The house needed dusted and vacuumed but I just have been so busy writing that I've kind of neglected the housework.

Well, I guess karma was paying attention because this weekend 3 of my kids and I were all sick with bad colds and headaches. I've been so tired from getting only 3 or 4 hours of sleep that I swear I'm about to loose my mind. Members of my family claim I already have.

Here's wishing everyone good health.

  1. I had to smile. I can't tell you how many times I've stood at the door angling my body just so because I just couldn't invite someone in. It's bad enough I'm standing there in my sweats with my hair up and no make-up, but my house is so cluttered I'd die a thousands deaths before I let anyone see it.

    The glamourous live of a stay at home mom/writer? NOT! Danielle Steele has a made, I'm sure. ; )

    By the way, this writermomof5 at wordpress, I tried to write as me, but it wouldn't load the password.
