My Cheerful Imperfections – a place for the ordinary

In my efforts to make my blog as attractive as possible and try to write about the things people seem to enjoy reading the most, sometimes I don’t write when I need to. You, know the times when I have just an awful day and writing would be the perfect way to blow off steam or relax.

For instance, yesterday I was having a pretty nice morning. I took the kids to the park and we took nature journals and they wrote down what they observed (we homeschool). I left it very open-ended for them, the only requirement being that they had to use adjectives at least 3 times. We were sitting at a table by a duck pond and it was just a little bit chilly. They wrote and then drew pictures of the ducks. We took a walk and then went home. But this seemingly peaceful day took a turn for the worse when my sister drove my grandmother to the airport and my grandmother fell and broke her leg.

While that was happening, I was trying to figure out what to do with 15 gallons of fresh milk my mom had sent to me via my grandmother that morning. I gave some away and decided to take the extra to put in the fridge at the church where I work (I am a music director). My eight year old was helping me carry it in and he tripped, dropping a jug (which he was carrying on his head), which fell and exploded. After kind of freaking out (I know, I know, I shouldn’t cry over spilt milk), I helped him clean it up, but a whole roll of paper towels, a baby blanket and two beach towels later, we still couldn’t get the last of the milk out of the carpet.

So, I am starting a new category on my blog. It probably don’t have nice pictures or handy food and health tips. It’s just a place where I can talk. I don’t really expect people to read it, but if you do, be forgiving, gentle readers. If, for some strange reason you want to read about my ordinary struggles and every day life, I will call the category “My cheerful imperfections” on the menu.
