Should I Be Doing Something?

This is the question I keep asking myself today... Should I be doing something?

The summer and even the last few months have been so busy.  I spent many days feeling like I was drowning, but seeing the joy and excitement on my kids faces kept me going.  The life of a stay at home mom is more insane than I ever imagined it to be.  I spend my days driving kids to and from school, soccer, dance, art classes, and anywhere else they need to be.  Then, there is the housework. My house has been a pig sty for the last several months.  Thank goodness my husband is so understanding and helpful.  He's jumped in, helping with more loads of laundry and dishes than I'd care to admit.

This last week though, I've been up on the housework.  I've had time in my day to get things done and I don't really know where it came from.  All week my house has looked quite clean, lived in, but clean. This morning, after dropping the kids off at school, I came home, folded a load of laundry swept, vacuumed, fed the little girls, and did the dishes.  I've been ordering my groceries online and they were delivered at about 9:30 this morning.  I had all of my housework done and the groceries put away by 9:45 today.  I've been watching Ben and Holly with the girls, playing with barbies with Rylie, editing my video from last week, and getting lots of snuggles.

It all feels so weird, like I should be doing something.  During Scotland's rest time and Rylie's rest time, I sat down and watched last night Grey's Anatomy.  Through the entire episode I kept checking the time.  I was sure I needed to be at the school picking up Ben and Sydney.  It's bizarre that I even have enough time to sit and watch a whole show.

In about 10 minutes I have to go pick up Ben and Sydney from school.  Provided the playground isn't too wet, I'll let the kids play for a little bit, at least until Boys and Girls Club comes out. Then we'll come home, and once again, we have nothing to do, but cook dinner and watch a movie as a family tonight.

I'm hoping for more wonderful days like today in my near future. Now, I'm off to change Scotland and then pick up Ben and Syd.  Tonight, Hocus Pocus and Chicken Enchilada Casserole.
