It’s been awhile since we’ve had a daily dose of Daryl here on Tuesday and I’ve been missing her.
So from 1967….here are some words of wisdom from Mrs. Hoole:
I love that….homemaking IS a great career. And I love even more the idea of becoming “a professional” in the field.
But the whole”…letting her devotion and sense of duty, rather than her moods dominate her….” well, that is a greeted with a little less enthusiasm from me.
That’s a tall order!
Some days I’m just plain grumpy and I don’t want to do the dishes or vacuum the floor or pick up the mega blocks for the eighty millionth time! And those days I struggle…and I talk to myself a lot…and I tell myself just do it…just do it…but sometimes I don’t listen to myself…and the crayons stay scattered on the floor…and the socks don’t get washed…and we eat grilled cheeses for dinner.
How do you conquer that?
I don’t know. I’m working on it…but I’m not a “professional” at it yet. Most days I love what I do. And then there are times when I just muscle through (and reward myself with a Dr. Pepper) but then there are those other days. And granted, those days are few and far between but when they come how can I prevail over the “I’m just done-ness”?
I know I can’t be the only who has those days…and I know I can’t be the only one who wants to overcome them. So when you have them what do you do? What helps?
(Just don’t say nachos…because right now…that is my only solution 🙂 and don’t you think I’m even kidding!)
