SOCS: Its the little things, and how to deal

October 2, 2011

As a SAHD over the last 17 months, I have learned things about myself and how I handle the little things.  I am still learning.  In the work outside the home world, when things are flying all over and 15 people are pulling you in 20 directions, you can get by with closing your door for 5 minutes and breathing.  Being at home requires the same thing sometimes, and you have to allow yourself to do that.

This morning, the prompt for this post occurred.  Laundry day, along with two projects The Kid has due tomorrow, and a host of Sunday afternoon activities to attend, the washer is not starting.  Clothes loaded, soap in, and buttons pushed, all for nothing.  Error codes abound.  Earlier in life, this may have resulted in a good old adult meltdown, but being with The Kid has prompted me to just roll with things a little better.  Make it work.  So I may have to wash some unmentionables by hand.  I suggested to Wife that the dishwasher is available, but she didn’t think that was as funny as I did.

So rolling with the little bumps that happen day to day.  I am learning that it doesn’t spell the end of the world.  We all have clean undies for tomorrow.

    Clean undies. You’ve got it in the bag. As long as the undies are good and there are hugs and love, you will survive.

      Hey Brittany! Thanks for the words of support! It is true how much other dirty clothes can be overlooked as long as there are clean undies. Well, that and each of us keeps a pretty large inventory of them. hah!

      Looking forward to digging into your site some more! Thank you for introducing your self here!
