The “Everyday”

There are so many things that I should be doing right now other than blogging… clipping coupons, preparing dinner, balancing the budget. I just reviewed my “to do’s” for the day and seriously considered adding “Have a good cry” to the top of the list. Nothing has happened to merit a melt-down, but there are some days that I can’t seem to get unstuck. Last Wednesday, I overturned an entire bowl of vanilla yogurt into the silverware drawer. A simple mishap that could have happened to anyone sent me into such a downward spiral for the rest of the day that immediately after the kids went to bed, I pulled the covers over my head and nursed a cold beer like it was one of Mia’s bottles. I felt like that scene in “When Harry Met Sally” where she carries on about turning 40 even though it is still more than a half decade away. That was me….. blubbering on about spilled yogurt, and next thing you know I’m picturing my kids sitting across from a shrink 20 years from now telling them how it all started with their mom’s utter incapability to fix a decent breakfast. I started this blog to shed some light and inspiration on the everyday life of women who seek to beautify the world around them. Lets be honest. There are times when the “everyday” can seem about as exciting as a gluten-free diet. The “everyday” comes complete with bad traffic, bad hair, cramps, late fees, taxes, and calls from relatives. It is in the “everyday” that you and your significant other are speaking a completely different language and can’t for the life of you have a conversation without it falling into some tragic misunderstanding. Lets face it. The “everyday” is about as sexy as flossing. But the “everydays” are what get you from one breathtaking moment to the next. The “everydays” make up our unique stories. The “everydays” are brimming with flaws that make the art interesting. Sometimes, you just need to be reminded that you’re not the only one who gets stuck in the everyday.

P.S. My son just said “poo poo”… “diaper”…. “pee pee”…. “thank you” in that order. Does that mean that it is time to add “potty train my toddler” to the to do list?
