So I made it four consecutive days before missing one? It’s like Lent, right–I get to skip the Sundays? I digress…
Yesterday I “pushed the easy button” for a potluck brunch at church. As much as I love to cook, elaborate preparations are not really a thing that happens in our house these days. So I hard boiled a dozen eggs, packed a pretty bowl and called it a covered dish. I struggle sometimes with the line between simple and half-assed, but when I’m honest about it, it’s usually me doing the judging, not others.
I also had a moment yesterday when I thought I was going to lose my shit over the house being a disaster (thought not because the house was a disaster). So today it was back to basics–washing the dishes, putting the toys up and making the bed before the end of the night. When all else fails, do what you know works.
And I’m happy to report that I made it in and out of Target today with only two purchases that weren’t absolute needs. I had a 50% off coupon for the first, and the second was a new scrub brush for my shower. Anything I can do to incent myself when it comes to that particular household chore is worth it.
