I often get emails asking “how do you do it all?!”
I have said this before
And today I am going to SHOW you the chaos that is our life sometimes…
Let me start off by saying that before I started my blog our house was spotless (most of the time).
The bed was ALWAYS made first thing in the morning.
Meals were planned out a month in advance.
I worked out everyday and the laundry was ALWAYS done.
THAT was the past.
Laundry is often put off until we all run out of clean clothes:
(anyone wanna come fold a sink full of laundry?!)
I am in LOVE with my Crock Pot!
Most days I find random stuff that is in the freezer, toss it in and let it cook!
We eat a ton of soups, stews, chili – anything that is easily cooked in the crock pot!
(I am constantly looking for quick, simple meals – if you have any you want to share please leave a link in the comments below!)
These days, our bed is RARELY made…
And you have to watch where you walk.
Toys are strewn throughout the house…
And more often than not, this happens:
What used to be our spotless, sparkling kitchen counters are now covered with craft stuff and sippy cups when I am in the middle of what I like to call a “creative tornado.”
I tend to have bursts of creativity and will often work on multiple projects at the same time. Once they are completed I clean up the mess and put the supplies back where they belong where they will stay until the next creative tornado strikes!
You know what?!
I am happy.
I am ok with a little mess.
I am thrilled to be able to write.
Connect with others.
Inspire others and be inspired.
I am still learning.
Trying to juggle blogging, cleaning and life.
Some days I blog.
Some days I clean.
Some days I just play with the littles and take a moment to soak them in.
And that is what JIAD is about.
A little bit crafty.
A little bit of life.
A little bit of family.
Truth be told – I am not perfect.
I am human.
What is your truth?
