Shit They Don’t Tell You: Some days, you’ll actually feel like Wonder Woman

I’m not gonna lie: I feel pretty bad-ass right now. We’re talking invincible.

A sink full of dishes + two loads of laundry + a crabby, tired, possibly teething 9.5 month old?

I got this shit.

This feeling is rare, so when it hits me, I relish it. I let myself feel awesome, because I know that even when I’m not feeling so awesome… well, I’m still pretty awesome.

I know, I know… that’s a lot of awesome for one sentence.


I came home from work today with a lot on my plate: We are hosting an 11-year-old boy (a relative of my husband’s) this week while he attends a hunter’s education class in my little town. P and E were out of the house most of the day today, so I knew there was housework waiting for me (see above: dishes & laundry). The crabby baby was a surprise, but I took it in stride.

Where am I now? Sitting at a clean kitchen table, with an empty sink, while the clothes are drying. And that crabby baby… is napping.

    Duh you’re awesome!

    Even already knowing how amazing you are, that is quite a list of accomplishments. If I could give you a high five right now, I totes would!
