  1. Oh Melissa! I so appreciate your honesty and having a chance to see the whole picture. We all have that in our lives and it feels good to know others are confronted with the same things. Hope you are okay after the fender bender - ouch. And the Mother's Day treasures are truly that!

  5. Love that my house is looking just like your house today. :) Lunch with dad, extra long nap from being pregnant, emergency trip to walmart for cereal and milk, run the dog to the vet for kennel cough....sigh. So much for cleaning up today.

    Thanks, loved that post.  I think someone needs to start a blog chuck full of messy house pictures and bad meals, so we could all feel better about ourselves.  Maybe I'll do it . . .

    Oh my goodness my house is always full of piles everywhere too. It drives me crazy and I cant stand them for more than a day. Its amplified when someone drops in unannounced too. But I have to remind myself that we're really living in this home and therefore its not always going to look as perfect as I would like. Makes me think of that phrase "A perfectly kept house is the sign of a misspent life." My mom might say thats a copout. But I'd much rather DWELL in my home and be PRESENT in my girls' lives than worry about perfection...most days. {wink}

  13. MMother's Day pretty much sabatoged both my house and my diet (my kids made me several cards and other paper crafts that are now strewn around the house, and my husband mde delicious food), but it was wonderful. Instead of cleaning up the aftermath, I spent the afternoon reading. It's been a great couple of days. ;) Thanks for your pictures and post -- they definitely helped asuage the few twinges of guilt I was feeling.

  16. But look, you have a handset, on your nightstand, in it's station.  You're ahead if you ask me....  I like your ideas, I think it's amazingly creative but on a budget.  Centsational Girl, Design Mom and you are my top reads when I open up Google reader... just so you know.

  17. Thank you for showing what life is really like! I get so tired of (and overwhelmed with) bloggers who only show the clean, organized parts of their lives. This is how my house looks any time I try to do something other than laundry or clean, so I appreciate you keeping it real!

  18. I totally connect with your pile at the top of the stairs!  It's one of the those piles of things in my house that sits there so long I don't even notice it!  AND I am SURE that my kids never notice it!  SO it will be  ol' mama sorting and putting that pile of who-knows-what away!  AND why is it that once one pile gets put away, another one is waiting to take it's place!  I have read organizational tips about taking 5-10 minutes before you go to bed to put away things that don't belong in each room.  First of all, it would take me longer than that, and second of all, before bed I am too tired!!!  :)  Thanks for letting us connect to issues I think we all have!  The Mother's Day treasures are just that, treasures!
