I'm Not Perfect

Can I just tell you how tired I am of looking at blogs that belong to those *perfect* women who have time to not only raise their multiple children, keep their house spotless, complete craft projects in ridiculous amounts, and be able to make dinners, or treats, or candy, or baking with confusing and numerous ingredients and still have time left over to blog... I just don't see how they do it. I think they're all lying to us, and they're messed up somewhere beneath that fa├žade.

I'm sure most of the people I look at are stay at home moms or people who run their own businesses from home, but I'm not those people. Even with that at home time I still don't see how they do it.

I work 8 hours a day with an extra two hours worth of commute time. I am tired. I'm busy making sure that my husband is happy and fed and that the dishes get done before they start to stink in the sink.

There are not enough hours in the day for me to sit down and do something creative. Most of the time I write, blog, crochet during work hours just to say I accomplished something.

I don't put up preserves, I don't garden, I don't even clean my house on a daily (or weekly) basis, but somehow I have managed to be a functioning part of society despite all the things I don't do.

Don't worry Liz. You're the most perfect "Liz" that I know. We love you so much and wish that we could visit and hang out with you guys more often. (And for the record my house is generally a mess too, and there are a lot of days that bed time arrives and I realize that I haven't even had time to take a shower yet that day)So just keep smiling and know that we all love you for just being you.
