I hate waking up frustrated. And I guess I wasn't frustrated when I woke up but it didn't take me long to get there. A couple emails of "well, it wasn't MY fault", a daughter who does not like correction, a sink of dishes and a floor that desperately needs swept pushed me over the edge.
It's my fault. Well, maybe not all of it. If I hadn't ignored my chore list again it wouldn't have gotten this bad. If I hadn't read blogs about moms who's kids clean their house I probably wouldn't have started comparing. If the emails hadn't felt like a personal attack I probably wouldn't have taken it so personally. If I remembered that cleaning and organizing were a ministry to my family and not something to check off the dishes probably wouldn't have bugged me.
So, I'm going to set off with a new attitude now. I will attack my work list and my home list and by the end of today hopefully my mind will be renewed!
