at 6:00 am this morning, it dawned on me.  I’m a middle aged woman, out of shape, trying to get through each day without really living.  Today will be different.

Once again, I went to sleep with no dishes in the sink and my house ‘organized.’  Once again, I awoke to dishes in the sink and stuff everywhere.  Explain to me why I put everything way before bed only to wake up to do it again!  My husband works nights and I swear just uses every dish and glass in the cabinets and just leaves them in the sink.  Guess what?  No more!  They are his to clean!  

It dawned on me that I have a family of clothes horses living somewhere in my house.  When all the laundry is done, they come out at night a leave piles of laundry in the laundry room for me when I awake.  I must set a trap.

It dawned on me, that I’m very lucky.  Through all my complaining and moaning, I HAVE a job, two healthy children and a husband that is more amusing than some cable shows, and he’s unscripted, both parents still alive and relatively healthy and I’m able to pay my bills (sometimes a little late - but nonetheless they get paid).

It dawned on me that I shouldn’t worry about the dishes, laundry or the zillion of other things that drive me crazy—I should just enjoy the fact that I’m here and fabulous at 40!
