The adventures in the wonderful world of Motherhood

Last night I couldn't sleep so I decided to get some well needed cleaning done. First I started on the dishes and then moved on the moping the floors. When I got that done I decided to wipe down the walls where my artist children decided to write on the walls. That was a job just in itself! I still have yet to do this in their bedrooms. I definitely did not want any chance of waking them up. I then moved on to the bathroom. Wow that was a whole other story. They apparently(the boys) like to miss the toilet a lot and like to wipe #2 on the walls and back of the toilet seat. It is times like this I wish I had the money to pay a maid or something. yuck!! I was wearing gloves of course so that helped. Why do they do these gross things? Am I the only one with this problem? I'm sure Felecity does her share of this too. They do good at not using a lot of Toilet paper if any at all. I'm sure this will change as they get older. I can't wait too because they are going to be doing a lot of helping around the house too. I know laundry will be one thing I will be having them do(their own of course).
This weekend should be one where we just stay at home and get the things done we have been putting off for so long. It's so hard to try and get these things done when the weekend is usually the only time we all get to see the hubby so we try to spend time with him and I try to get the help I need that I don't get during the week. Hubby is planning to take the engine out of my truck and see if they can see what went wrong with it. We couldn't be lucky enough to have it be something easy and not have to replace the whole engine. We'll see what happens.

We need to go through some stuff in our garage that has been in boxes since we moved and get rid of it. Oh and that brings me to a pet peeve of mine! I am one of those people that think that if you were given something(free) then you should pass of the favor. So why sell something that was given to you? Are you that greedy? Over the years I have given so many things to people that need thing before I would ever try and sell them. It just pisses me off that they would turn around later and try and get money out of it. I have actually lost a good friend of mine a few years ago due to her being so greedy(among other things related to money) that I finally just spoke up and said something. Well needless to say she didn't like that and I haven't spoke to her in over 2 years. Must not have liked the truth! Why are people like this? This makes me so mad! If you know me at all you know I would give the shirt off my back if someone needed it more than I did. I just hate when people take advantage of others of always expect something out of you. I guess I am too nice of person. I have a big heart and if I was rich I would try to give as much as possible to people in need.

I know what you mean about selling something that was given to you. Just recently I had a ton of beautiful brand-new baby girl clothes given to me, way more than my one little girl could ever wear, adn the first thought that ran through my mind was, "Wow, someone could make a lot of money selling this on Ebay." Of course, that thought lasted all of two seconds, ha ha! Instead, I'm donating most of it to a crisis pregnancy center, where someone who really needs it can use it.

Anyway, just wanted to affirm for you that you're not alone, keep being the good person you are and don't let the money-grubbers get to you. Remember, what goes around comes around. :)
