Sometimes don't you feel like the to-do list is overwhelming?
There seems to be mess on every flat surface
and some of the vertical ones too.
Sometimes you have to work hard to maintain
an oasis of calm in the midst of crazy crazy busyness.
Our home is messy at the best of times,
but multiple deadlines and the beginning of packing
seems to have pushed it to new heights.
A poorly kidlet and one who keeps unpacking what you packed,
combined with the never ending laundry mountain,
leaves the living room with no space to live.
Unless an angel appears, a miracle will have to happen
before I can cook the dinner.
We are trying to use up all the stuff in the freezer
so lamb mince will be teamed with the seemingly endless frozen veges.
Meanwhile my head is full to the brim of the treaty,
of shield law and of global sport and religion
all mixed up with, must remember to pack the cotton buds in the take with us pile.
They say things sometimes have to get worse before they get better,
but I'm hoping that we can find moments of peace
in the great craziness that is this last semester of the year.
Because if we wait till the jobs are all done,
there is going to be no rest at all and that's a recipe for meltdown in my book!
Now excuse me while I turn a blind eye to all this mess
and climb onto the sofa for a cuddle with the sick kidlet.
