It’s summer. I am on a meetup for work. Melvin is in charge of the kids plus working a ton. Life is bonkers right now. But my family is thriving.
I’ve tried to keep up with the house. Just as I finish sweeping and mopping floors though, suddenly, a million toys appear out of nowhere. It’s like the multiply when my back is turned!
In the past, the state of my house would have deterred me from allowing anyone in my house. But life is short. While my house may not be perfect, its a happy house. It feels like a dumpster fire. But my view is always more critical than my kids or even friends.
All of this is to say, don’t let the state of your house hold you back from enjoying life. My kids won’t keep. But my house will always be here for me to clean.
