The hard way

Sometimes I just have to learn the hard way. When it comes to me getting ready or making dinner I pretty much let the boys do whatever so that I can actually get out the door or put a meal on the table. It often backfires as it did yesterday. Micah was pulling all the spices out of the spice drawer and I thought - no big deal. I saw him a few minutes later shaking the open container of chili powder all over the dining room. Okay, okay. Vacuumed it up and moved on. About a half hour later I was walking upstairs and noticed chili powder everywhere on the entry floor, covering the couch and rug. Oh boy, big mess. Vacuum again. Oh well, I'm sure we will have another mess come 5 o'clock tonight.


  1. This surprises me, actually. However, I don't blame you...I have found myself doing the very same thing recently :)

    Btw, thanks for mentioning the West Point reunion. I was actually wearing the s/s grey West Point t-shirt from that occasion when I read it. I thought, 'wow, it has been 10 years?!' then I looked down at the shirt, which is NOT in good condition. The 10 year mark promptly made me cut it up and use it as rags. Oh boy, did I need that push...it was unsightly!

  2. My sister got me a handy vacuum for Christmas last year and it is used DAILY around our house. I can totally understand Micah he would fit in perfectly at our house! Cute story but boy, oh boy!
