I just had to show you how organized and on top of things I am today.
This is my outfit of the day to greet my visiting teachers (women from church who come and visit once a month). Isn’t it so lovely? My favorite part is the greasy hair pulled back in a ponytail.
I completely forgot they were coming. I remembered yesterday! I even thought, “Oh my visiting teachers will be coming tomorrow.” Then tomorrow came and I forgot. My house was messy and I was exercising when they knocked on the door. Yes, I was sweating. And they were standing there tempting me with a plate of peanut butter cookies with M&Ms in them. How mortifying, right?!
Thankfully they wanted to see some work we’ve been doing on our house so while I distracted them with that my kids – without being asked mind you – cleaned up the kitchen and living room so all looked presentable when we sat on the couches to visit.
And I learned a valuable lesson. A couple of lessons, actually.
- Good friends don’t care what you look like or what you are wearing.
- Putting reminders in my phone or on my calendar will help me be better organized, especially if I remember to look at them.
- Teaching children to clean properly and fast can pay off!
Okay that was three lessons. I can count, I think. Now excuse me. I need to go figure out why the garbage disposal is stinking so bad. And then, I promise I will go take a shower!
Next Tuesday I will have a guest blogger helping answer some of your questions from last week. Stayed tune!
