Is everyone out there on Pinterest now? I try not to get too caught up in it, but it's difficult. I am especially exasperated by all the perfect, organized homes out there - how on earth do these women do it? I don't think they REALLY have kids, or at least not kids who make messes, refuse to clean up, fight, spill food/drink, pee their beds, etc.
I know that I had a VERY different expectation of what staying at home would be like. I would sit at my desk all day, dreaming of menu planning, clipping coupons, organizing every last inch of every closet. Yeah, RIGHT! It's a struggle to keep up with the gobs and gobs of laundry and TRY to make a meal that doesn't make the kids GAG! (The spaghetti tonight went over pretty well, which was surprising.)
But one thing I am LOVING about Pinterest is all the wonderful gift ideas for Christmas. Money is tight these days (probably for everyone) and homemade gifts are the way to go for us. I'm not going to go into details because my family, who may be the recipients of these gifts,might be reading but I'm getting excited to get going on them. Sure, it's going to be challenging to find the time to make them, but that's part of the gift - my time, which everyone knows is so very limited.
I still can't wrap my brain around the fact that summer's over and Christmas is just a couple of months ago. Where has 2012 gone???
