Do you know how as you go through life you learn things about yourself, things you would never have guessed?
Well, I came to the realization today that I love chaos. How else could you explain my actions and my life for that matter.
First let me say my husband is having surgery in a week and a half, my kids are in the middle of getting ready for school to start, the garden is producing,
I am personally remodeling a basement ( and teaching myself new skills in order to do it), we are in the middle of a coyote invasion, not to mention the fact that I still have a house full of men to run on a daily basis, and a million animals I am personally responsible for. Now this house I am running is not done in the normal fashion for say someone living in 2009. No, I can't do that. I have taken us back a few years and I do things the old fashioned way. So when I say a house to run I mean laundry to hang dry on the line, dinner to cook from scratch ( now where did that hatchet go ?), etc. Any how, back to the enlightened moment. Today as I added a new dog to the batch and threw in a extra kid I began to question myself. Why would I purposefully go and get a dog ( my husband and I have been considering it) and then turn around and tell my 10 year old " sure your friend can spend the night what is another monkey in the barrel".
The answer is I must love the crazy topsy turvy life. Who knew ?
