Relaxing Saturday Morning

Saturday is supposed to be relaxing, is it not?

It's certainly not supposed to begin with an 8:00 morning appointment with a heating and cooling company to discuss an aging furnace and a kaput central air unit. No, those are Monday morning appointments, not Saturday morning engagements.

Certainly on a serene, temperate Saturday morning the entryway to my home shouldn't look like this, should it?


Do you see what's all going on in the above picture? Can you see the chaos? The strategically placed shoe cubby is forgotten; neighborhood children, of which there are two in my home upstairs playing with Madeleine, have strewn flip-flops and roller blades (!!!) about my formerly tidy living room. There's laundry to fold and Elisabeth is helping herself to a box of cereal.

No, this does not feel like a peaceful Saturday morning. I should still be sipping coffee and lolling over the morning paper, shouldn't I?

Yes, you should be, but seriously, do you know any mother of 3 or 4 that is allotted that luxury? I'm happy to hear I'm not the only mom with chaotic Sat. mornings!!
