Not so Wordless Wednesday: That's my girl!

I took this pic last week but just found it when I was emptying a memory card and it made me laugh all over again. Last week, we were cleaning the house for my sister and her family to come visit. My sister and brother-in-law were to be staying in Princess P's room and at the time of this picture, you couldn't even walk through the room without stubbing a toe on something. So I busted out laughing when I went to check on her and found her sweeping the shoe shelves. She had emptied the shelves of all their shoes and was sweeping it because "it was dirty".

This is sadly very much like something I would do. When I have a lot to do, I usually pick something totally unnecessary to do. Like...if the kitchen is a mess, I will clean out the silverware drawer and ignore the stacks of dishes in the sink (or blog as the case may be right now...poor dishes!). Or if our room is piled high with laundry (please tell me you do this too?!?), I'll sort my sock drawer. By doing something that gives instant results I get a quick sense of accomplishment and I guess it makes me feel better about the mess. I'm sorry P inherited this from me...not one of my better traits!

Off to clean out the dryer vent...have a great day y'all!

  1. I love it! I do the same thing! Although I now try to do some useless thing that relates more closely to what needs to be done (e.g. unloading the dishwasher so there's a place for the sinkful of dishes to go). You have such great kids - and this is just one more example.


I would love to hear your thoughts!!
