real life with Valerie

For Dixie

I have this wonderful friend, Dixie, whom I seem to have fooled completely. She seems to think I’m organized, disciplined or creative. Man. Is she blinded by kindred spirit friendship or what? Lest anyone else out there be confused and actually think that I am together, I’ve included a few photos to prove otherwise. I snapped these today, right after lunch.
It should clear up any preconceived notion that I am “organized” or “disciplined” or “creative”. It should prove to the world that I’m disorganized, uncreative and lazy. Wouldn’t a creative person figure out a better decor? Wouldn’t a disciplined person have all her ducks in row?? I think so. And I, dear friend, I do not have my ducks in a row. I should be making homemade bread or weeding my garden (which still needs to be planted) or mopping the rest of my floors, or grading papers, or cleaning out the seams around my sink. That’s what an organized woman would do. I, however, sit here uploading photos and typing on a blog. Surrounded by the clutter in the photos below. Now tell me, does that sound organized to you?? No.

So, without further ado, here is exhibit A in the case against Valerie.

In the kitchen…oh boy.


In the school room…yikes!



In the bedroom…I need to fold those clothes so I can put on the sheets. I’ll do it later.
What?
I heard that!
I said I’d do it later and I will, okay! :].



I leave you with this photo of our board from today’s first grade arithmetic lesson.

Isn’t that the question you’re asking? Why??? “Why must you bore us to death with these photos? Why!!” Well, friends and neighbors, I don’t know the answer to that. It probably has something to do with my being OC. When I get a clear diagnosis, I’ll let you know. ;]

And Dixie, I really appreciate your kind e mail. It’s so sweet of you to think so well of me. I have you so completely fooled. Now go put your feet up and relax. I think that’s what I’ll do. ;]

What?

Okay already! I’ll go do the sheets! But then I’m gonna relax.

Anyone wanna watch an Andy with me?? No? Oh well.

  1. Isn't it funny how we think other people are so organized? My MIL has a spotless house. I tried to get mine that way. Never happened. Never will. I only have one child but homeschooling keeps me busy, as does this computer!! My husband was shining the flashlight under the dresser last night (looking for a bead from my daughter's necklace) and I was like, “STOP THAT! You'll wake the dust bunnies!!”

    That was so funny. Your rooms all put together is cleaner than my Loft. It has collected stuff upon stuff upon stuff.

    I volunteer to help make your bed, pop some popcorn and watch a movie. Work never leaves us but it's needed for us to leaved our work!!
