Livin' On A Prayer

Dear Lord,

I don't think it's very good if I spend time praying for 15 minutes to sweep and Mop my floor. There's so much more in the world that needs praying for, like.... things 1,000,000 times worse than my dirty floor. This should be a no brainer right God? Just PUSH the "YES" button and LET ME CLEAN MY HOUSE. That way, I can get back to praying for the starving orphans. You want starving orphan prayers don't you???


Yours Truly, Amen,

- Trashed House Mommy

Honey, I remember those days! Still have them every once in a while.:P

I'm going to share with you a little advice my grandma gave me, that I wish I would have listened to long ago...Stop worrying about the floors and messy house! If you clean them now, they're just gonna get messy again. Enjoy your babies. That's all that really matters. :)

But, if cleaning is your way of looking for sanity and a break from the babies, tell Chino that he gets to watch them for an hour in another part of the house while you do something else.

Hope your prayers are answered soon! :)

Oooo Leslie you're so intuitive I swear! Cleaning IS my way of getting away from the babies. It's one of the few things that seems legit enough for me to make him watch the babies while I do something else. I don't even mean it to sound like martyrdom, it's just that we've both got work to do and have to take turns to do it, let alone do something like read a book. At least with blogging I can get it in a minute here and a minute there inbetween stirs of the pasta pot! :)

I NEVER thought I would enjoy cleaning but now it gives me a little break from spit up, Dora the explorer, juice boxes, diapers, bibi's... ETC. I totally get you, it is the only legit thing that I can do while leaving hubby in charge of the bebes, I mean a shower doesn't even cut it. I try to wait until everybody is asleep to do that luxury ;) Good luck finding your 15 minutes.
