this is pretty much a wife fail post and i'm sure some of you can relate.when we got married only 8 months ago our apartment was spotless. maybe because i wanted to show stephen he married the cleanest person in the world (didn't fool him on that one) or we didn't have as much stuff as we do now. it could be a mix of both , but anyways this post is sad and hilarious in it's own way. i just had to take these before and after pictures. (by the way the before pictures are when we first moved in. it was a little house tour to show friends and family our new nest). anyways, this shows you what only 8 months of marriage, working full time, trying to exercise, cooking dinner every night, serving at church, walking Sadie and taking college courses looks like:
i hope you feel super loved readers because my parents haven't even seen our true colors yet. but, actually. i take that back. my parents lived with me for 22 years....i'm sure they wouldn't be surprised i don't put the laundry away until a week later or that i leave target bags and lunch boxes on the table. this seriously scares me though! we got a dog and it's only been 8 months of marriage.....what will our apartment look like after 8 years of marriage???? and kids????!!! i always said i'm going to teach my kids to be clean, as close to Leave It To Beaver as i could. well, i guess our kids are screwed. and now the best before and after picture yet! the bedroom: tada!
i'm going to try and balance my life a little better..but honestly...who can do all the things most women do (list above) and not get any help? (like professional help). anybody want to get hired as a cleaning lady once a month for a deep cleaning? i mean my husband helps a lot more then the average man probably does. ( bless his heart ) but when do i seriously have time to scrub the base boards or dust behind the windows? wife fail. i feel like i can't do it all...which i can't but i'm doing my best to stay positive and pray someday i'll be able to stay home and be the perfect housewife. but let's be honest here, even if i was a stay at home wife....that laundry still wouldn't be put away for another week. bleh!
