So I have a confession to all of you who have been following my Frumps to Pumps challenge. Two days this week I didn’t really get dressed. OK, technically I did put on clothes other than pajamas. After a difficult Sunday that included having to buy and install a new water heater, we had dinner between 9:30 and 10 PM and didn’t get to sleep until after 11 with my kitchen sink still full of dishes and unfolded laundry strewn all over the living room. I set my alarm for what I thought was a conservative 6:45, since I’ve been out of the habit of getting up early for the last week. But it was another restless night with my daughter up in the middle of the night to tell us that she couldn’t sleep. Around 5 AM I gave up and turned off my alarm.
But I was determined that I was going to exercise so I stared my day at 8 AM in exercise clothes. Long story short, I didn’t actually get dressed in regular clothes until after 12 and I never did get a shower.
Today has not been much better, as it is now after 1 PM and I am still in my workout clothes. The good new: I did over an hour on my Wii Fit. Bad news: I also have to finish cleaning the house and it’s hard to clean while dressed in clothes you care about. (I’m always giving my husband a hard time for cleaning the tub in his work clothes.)
Not the day I had hoped for but the best thing about days like that is that we can try to do better the next day. Thus ends my Frumps confession. Give youself grace for the days when all your good intentions lead to nothing but more chaos.
