My husband and I shouldn’t be anyone’s role models in this regard, but at least we’re happy and relaxed. Much more than anyone else I know. Sure, there’s a mountain of laundry that should be done, and that pillow fort my daughter and husband made out of the dining table two weeks ago is still up, and something kind of smells in the kitchen. But just as I suggested to my husband that maybe we should do something about it, our DD came up to us and wanted to play Mario Party, and that sounded more fun…
I fixed the smell when she went to bed while my husband threw the most essential clothes in the machine, but that pillow fort isn’t going down anytime soon. We eat from biodegradable paper plates and cups, we pre-prepare meals, and order take-out sometimes when we’re too lazy. Those are the only actual tips I have.
What will you regret when you’re old? That you didn’t do enough dishes or that you didn’t spend enough time with your family? That’s what we tell ourselves every time we spend two hours frantically trying to make our house presentable before guests come over.
