Last week, I found myself frustrated at the amount of time I feel like I spend cleaning - straightening, organizing, doing laundry, vacuuming, etc. I almost lost it on Greg when I saw a trail of coffee grounds sprinkled across the kitchen counter that I had JUST wiped down. I know that my reaction (read: internal rage) to that was due to my not having the extra time I am used to to be that much of a clean freak. I mean, it really does NOT matter that my kitchen counter top is not spotless. Does anyone really care (other than me)?
I guess part of taking on a new responsibility (Ben) is having to let go of some things. I obviously would rather maintain my relationship and friendships over having an immaculate household, but still - it's hard to make that adjustment at times. I am realizing that sometimes I will be great at balancing it all, and at other times, I will suck at it.
This weekend I have the following on the agenda:
- Golf outing for Greg
- Bridal shower: Celebrating a friend AND spending time with friends
- Haircut and color: Relaxing "me" time
- Easter brunch at my parents
- A movie date with Greg! (We have not been to a movie since a few weeks before Ben was born. We used to go at least every month or two).
- Yoga (at home, probably)
