It's 10:43 a.m. and I am bored.
Today I got up at 7 a.m., took a bath, got dressed, made the bed, put away yesterday's load of laundry.
The girls were dropped off at 8:00. I played with the baby for a few minutes, then made her breakfast, fed her and put her in her walker.
I made breakfast for McKenzie and myself, we ate, put the dishes in the dishwasher, then I put in a SpongeBob video for her, made the baby a bottle, changed her diaper and put her down for her nap.
I worked on a Christmas gift I'm making for one of my granddaughters for about fifteen minutes and checked my e-mail.
Then I swept the downstairs floors and cleaned the downstairs bathroom. As soon as I finish this post, I will mop the floors downstairs, then go upstairs and clean the extra bathroom up there.
Isabella will wake up in about an hour and if I'm lucky, I may just get some time to work on the Christmas gift for another fifteen minutes, OR, I may even get time to scrape some more wallpaper off my kitchen walls, before she wakes up.
Such are the dreams of the average American housewife. I think I need an attitude adjustment today.
It's now 10:47 a.m.
Proverbs 31:10-15 (New International Version)
10 A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still dark;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her servant girls...
