I’ve already chosen my One Word for the year… but when the Nester posted this article about choosing an Un-word… I was even more excited. Choosing my one word (Shire ;-) is cool and gives me focus, but I think the Un-word is something I need even more. (Even though everytime I read “Un-word” I start singing A very merry un-birthday from Alice in Wonderland…)
An Un-word is a word that you are rejecting for this year. Something you want to fix or Un-do.
The more I thought about it the more I knew I wanted to participate… in my mind. I had no intention of actually joining or heaven forbid blogging about it. Last night changed that.
If you recall… This is what our crazy room looked like before:
Today was hard. The kids were completely out of sorts. Normally my kids are extremely well behaved, but today… Oh today. My entire mommy world fell apart amongst endless bickering, fighting, hardheadedness, and picky eating. Add to that the fact that my house is a complete homemaking disaster and I’m less than 2 months away from my due date… and you have a completely frazzled Momma. By the end of the day I was begging my husband to come home and please take our Littles out so I could regain my sanity.
Of course as soon as they were gone (… ok maybe it was after my ears stopped ringing… ;-) I missed them. I looked around at our messy home and even though I still had laundry to wash and piles of clean-getting-wrinkly clothes on the furniture… I was thankful.
